The socialist leader made the statement in Caracas while inaugurating a new cable car system in the capital city after making similar comments as recently as Monday.
“Cuba has more doctors in Haiti than the United States. You see the Marines with machine guns and rifles and actually firing them. They are firing at the looters. I don’t know how many they’ve killed at this point, but they go in there with a license to kill whoever they want, wherever they want and however they want. It is terrible of the empire.”
The US military is spearheading the huge ongoing international relief effort in the devastated Caribbean country and has around 12,000 personnel on the ground or on ships offshore
