Makes you wonder why the US even bother.
Whenever there is a disaster in the world, which country can be relied up to send one of the largest contingents of troops, aid workers, medicos, water , food, etc???....yes the good old USA. I don't care whether it is Bush, Clinton, Obama....the US just help.
Yet already the knockers (from afar) have come out and complained about:
a) Lack of coordinated aid efforts
b) Lack of medical attention, water and food
c) The delay in Obama contacting the Haiti government,
and in the process directing the shots over the bow of the US.
The conditions over there must be an absolute nightmare - I understand that.
In times of trouble around the world, I'd rather be relying on the US, over China, Russia, France, Germany, India, Brazil, Japan and all the other so-called superpowers. Yet the left wing, anti-capitalist, commo, tree-huggers don't ever complain about the single Soviet bomber being sent, but rather focus on failings of the US.
And don't give me the old chestnut about "per head of population". The people in Haiti don't care about "pound for pound" they just want help.
