    Background: THOUGH THE CRISIS BETWEEN HAITI AND THE NEIGHBOURING DOMINICAN REPUBLIC HAS EASED, A POWERFUL UNITED STATES TASK FORCE IS PATROLLING THE CARIBBEAN NEARBY, READY TO PROTECT AMERICAN NATIONALS IN EITHER COUNTRY SHOULD FRESH TROUBLE ARISE.

    THE FORCE COMPRISES THE ASSAULT SHIP'BOXER', WITH 2,000 COMBAT-READY U.S. MARINES ABOARD, AND FIVE SUPPORT SHIPS, INCLUDING TWO DESTROYERS. TO DEMONSTRATE HOW QUICKLY TROOPS COULD BE LANDED IN CASE OF EMERGENCY, 500 MARINES FLEW FROM THE 'BOXER' IN HELICOPTER RELAYS ON SUNDAY TO A POINT ABOUT 10 MILES FROM THE HAITIAN COAST.

    THE SHIPS WERE ORDERED TO THE CARIBBEAN WHEN THE HAITI-DOMINICAN DISPUTE THREATENED TO ERUPT INTO WAR LATE LAST MONTH. THEIR JOB IS TO TAKE OUT AMERICAN NATIONALS, MOST OF WHOSE DEPENDENTS HAVE ALREADY BEEN EVACUATED, IF THE SITUATION WORSENS.
