If you had to establish a FOB in Haiti where would you go?

Asssuming you can take 100 men and a bunch of gear, long enough for a year's siege at least.

      I hate to be a stick in the mud, but this.
      There is literally nothing worth fighting for in Haiti. Nothing to loot. No economic gains that could be made. No ideological reason to do so - no, slaughtering Haitians is not an ideology outside of the Dominican Republic. The country is also more likely than not actually, capital c, genuinely supernaturally Cursed. You and your hundred man mercenary force would literally be better going anywhere else on Earth.

          The Haitians in their infinite wisdom literally stripped the land for all its worth, anon. Just look at satellite images of the border with the Dominican. And of course everyone will cope and blame the French 200 something years after the fact, even though literally no post colonial country outside of maybe Liberia has reached the depraved depths Haiti has always been in.

          If I wanted thick Caribbean pussy that badly I’d just frick right off to the DR.

            I mean, the French forced the Haitians to pay their slave debt back, with interest, and it took them 150 years. They only finished paying in 1947. I think the only colony that compares in that level of cruelty is the Congo

        sticks in the mud get kicked and broken. Exterminate the Haitians and let the Dominican Republic inherit the land. The Dominicans could use some extra living space and they can shape the local mud into something other than a biscuit,

        You could go there to restore order and prevent an influx of refugees to the US that might be worthwhile

        The real reason for the woeful state of Haiti is actually more terrestrial. What more can one expect when a bunch of brutalised African slaves are left to their own devices and try to run a state?

          They also got pretty fricked over by the US and France. It might have gone ok at first because there was a decent group of well educated slaves and free blacks, as well as free whites who could work as a leadership base. However, because of French attempts to retake the island and schisms in the revolt, it went from a solid elite setting up a new republic to endless slave armies slugging it out. The illiterate ended up gaining more power due to attention and then you get the genocide of most of the whites, many of whom had originally been allies (Poles interestingly were exempt due to being seen as subhumans by the other Whites).

          Then deforestation took its toll. It could have gone a lot better without a few major wrong turns. The initial revolutionary government looked somewhat promising.

            For once the "many such cases" meme is more depressingly on the nose than not, what you're describing is how shit has gone in general for revolutions. Part of the reason that while not blind to their flaws I'm unironically appreciative and patriotic about the Founders is that avoiding that kind of shit is the exception not the rule. We could easily have ended up with King Washington The First, like that's what plenty of people wanted, not end to monarchy and nobles and shit but having our own who'd be local and more responsive in theory. Or we could have dissolved into competing power bases and microstates, or a bunch of other shit. Country was real unstable with no real examples. It took serious diplomacy too, we had some really solid people who went to Europe and helped avoid certain levels of great power frickery, playing various other powers off each other while America built.

            I feel like a lot of my fellow Americans really take it for granted, for all our complaints we literally have had the most stable government in modern history and that's worth a lot.

              We pretty much ended up with the American civil war and a federalist government that was not at all in line with the founding father's intentions.

              The fact that pretty much no American adults that aren't history nerds realize this means the founding fathers ultimately failed. We had a good run, no one could have expected them to see 250 years into the future.

    If I brought a force I’d try and bring a decent sized one (500-1k), claim one of the areas in black and become tropico leader or some shit. Expand operation to other areas or/then to yellow regions, avoid red until they killed each other off. Become el Presidente

    Legally speaking, could you simply colonize a part of Haiti with your mates? Seeing that it doesn't have a government anymore, so it should be free real estate.

      They would wag their finger at you but reluctantly aknowledge that you solved Haïti's food crisis (by accidentally dropping a Snickers snack in the middle of Port-au-Prince), so as long as your occupation of the country stays a net positive they can chalk it up to "peacekeeping"

    I’d cross the border and go to the DR. Frick Haiti.
