Will the Carribean nations really be part of a Haiti invasion? At yesterday's Jamaica meeting, the four CARICOM countries providing 266 troops to a Haiti operation indicated they would be part of the "first phase" of an invasion. But today, TIME Pentagon correspondent Mark Thompson reports, Defense officials said the Carribeans might be in "the first phase," but not in the "first wave," which is when the combat would actually take place. That initial assault would be left to U.S. soldiers.
