Wrong. We should donate money food and water and let the UN handle it. Obama will go all in and adopt the country. We will never be able to get out. This is going to be a nightmare. That moron is sending an aircraft carrier and the 82nd Airborne. Good god what an idiot! Although he did have the comments in his book about how Haitis problems are caused by “White Mans Greed”. And how cruise ships throw enough food away every day to feed the whole country. Well we are about to find out.
You are exactly correct.
Half the country would be dead of starvation and dehydration waiting for the UN to pull it's head out if it's butt and get things organized.
This is HIS Katrina, & the whole world, rightly or wrongly, will see it that way. Americans will see it that way. I see it that way.
There is no other country in the region capable of even making a difference. To cede this responsibility to the UN is to insure the deaths of thousands more Haitians. Even BHO knows this.
Furthermore, the MSM is giving this disaster big coverage. If the supplies continue to pile up at the airport while the people continue to starve, the MSM will find somebody to blame & it will not be Bush.
Like it or not, Obama & the USA own this disaster, by proximity & ability to help. I sincerely hope he employs speedy, effective, & maximum effort to help Haiti. But I have serious doubts about his ability & inclination to do this right.
An aircraft carrier is the ideal answer to this. It has a functioning airport, a hospital, and it produces fresh water.
