That is just terrible, many of those dangerous criminals will get their hands on weapons and can cause a lot of damage to the aid personnel.

Now the US government is admitting that military personnel is not accounted for it in Haiti

It seems that the people are heading for the coast thinking that that is from where the aid will come specially with the news of US ships heading for Haiti.

So sad, so sad.

I think that, by biblical, she meant the Deluge, the Great Flood. It's a tragedy with biblical proportions. It's a normal thing to compare with.

I don't have time to make a thread on this but for all of you who think its HAARP you need to check out the graphs.

www.haarp.alaska.edu...

That's a bunch of data from HAARP and it doesn't look like it was going nuts before or during the earthquake.

I know they need everything they can get, but 1 million from China? Not enough considering the Guyana is giving the same, they are not near as wealthy as China. Come on China, you can do better than that.
I wish I could be there right now to help. I am so freakin upset by this. I'm pissed off cuz everyone I work with doesn't even give a rats a**, we should be having a prayer vigil.

All I can do is pray for them, alone.

I'm with ya. A friend of mine called me this morning. She started to gossip about her job and I had to cut her off. She may be mad, but come on now. It amazes me when people really live as if nothing else in the world matters except themselves.
