Hi
Here is the link i found to the insignia site of this forum and that shows Haiti having Army, Airforce, Navy, and Police. But i dont know if those are correct today.
The UN is actually taking care of everything now an my rescue team members leaving the country now left allmost all their equipment such as tents for the UN. I dont know if they left the radios aswell As the Icelandic team was having so much of radio equipment with them. I will find out tomorrow evening as i am getting the team from the airport here in Iceland when they arrive.

The Haitian military was disbanded in 1995 but has not yet been officially abolished. Internal security is the responsibility of the 11,000 member Haitian National Police and the 9,500 troops and police of the UN peacekeeping force in the country.

The US, UK, Canadian, French, Belgian, and Dutch troops sent as part of the rescue and relief efforts are not part of the UN force, but they can defend themselves if they are attacked or if they come across a violent incident they will react. AFAIK all will be armed though live ammo may or may not be carried in the field.

Hi
Here in Iceland the police is taking control of law enforcement on land, the Coast Guard on sea. But we do have something called Iceland Defence Agency (IDA). They are link between Iceland and other Nato countryes. The Iceland Crisis And Responce Unit (ICRU) is part of that agency aswell. ICRU is having peace forces for NATO in Ahfganistan and some other countryes + the Rescue team "Icelandic Search And Rescue (ICESAR)" that went to Haiti from Iceland is under the Agency aswell.
For defence Iceland has about 450 persons registered as defence, they come from Police 150, Coast Guard 160, and IDA (ICRU) 140.
Iceland is registered as country without an Army.
If some country will attac Iceland then we give our leader some coins for making a telephone call to the enemy so he/she can say "we surrender"... smilies-15
But i dont think that will happen...
