I am afraid it usual is. America is always on the scene. We're the ones the Haitians were calling to, not France, not the UN. America. They do not call for help from Saudi Arabia or the Turks. Their cries for sustenance are deaf to those nations.

America and Americans are good people and I sick and tired of being blmaed for every freaking problem in the world. Already, pinheads are trying to blame this on some nefarious American plot.

Send in the U.S. Navy Seabees !!
They can re-build the airstrip and the air traffic control tower.
The Seabees built airstrips on islands in the Pacific theater during WW II practically overnight. Seabees waited in their ships offshore while the Marines secured the island. Sometimes, they would be building an airstrip with fighting still going on around them.

I heard an unsubstantiated report that the Hospital Ship has already arrived, I'm working on getting confirmation.

Catholic services has already set up some makeshift hospitals, but are struggling to get through roads. Machinery is needed. They are having to transport people to the makeshifts, instead of bringing aid to the victims.

I'm not going to derail the thread, but i didnt blame america for any problems. While america does help, you seemed like you were of the opinion that it's always just america helping. That's all. When i commented about politics and P***ing contests, i was talking about all our governments.

I really don't mean to be political, but due to the close proximately of Haiti to the United States, it would be a crime for the U.S. not to send help. Especially when you consider that a quick response is critical in such emergencies. The other 1st world countries will require a much longer time frame to get help to Haiti due to the distances involved.

From Miami-Herald:

First Lady, Elisabeth Préval, adds: "I'm stepping over dead bodies. A lot of people are buried under buildings. The general hospital has collapsed. We need support. We need help. We need engineers."
