This sent a shiver down my spine! The Haitian people are very greatful for the help from America, and other contries. In this video, the Los Angeles Fire Dept. pulls a wounded Haitian from the rubble, and the crowd is extatic! I think this has done more for Americas image then anything in the last decade!



-E-

Edit to add: When it comes to disaster response, our Firefighters are getting it done!

Cool video, thanks.

They don't call us the home of the brave for nothing. We're the first ones in and the last ones out whenever there is a disaster.

Thank you to the Haitian people for recognizing that.

Gee, I wonder why they would do that?


Could it be because the US is actually helping them, unlike what MINUSTAH was doing? Could it be that being raided and murdered in their homes by the UN because of their political desires has made the Haitians beg for help from the US? For many many years now?

Nah, that couldn't be it.

Because the US CAUSED this quake, right? Because the US has absolutely no humanitarian credit, it is all negative agendas. The US nuked Haiti, or used HAARP to magically cause an earthquake (on a fault line that was predicted to go off BIG for a long time now); and now are invading and exploiting the poor stupid Haitians! Geez, don't you guys know anything?

Sorry, do I sound a bit peeved?

1000 threads a day demonizing US efforts to save these desperate people, every little move that the military takes is dissected and announced malignant, but yes, lets IGNORE that Haitians themselves, who are HAPPY the US is there, and have invited them to stay for a very long time.

Deny ignorance my **s. Do some research, theory monkeys. Try starting with Lavalas and Aristide, and MINUSTAH massacres in Cite de Soleil.

Thank you for posting this OP. But the idiocy and deliberate averting eyes of obvious fact on this site lately has seriously ticked me off. Not every damn thing is a conspiracy people- even on a conspiracy discussion forum.

Hate to shatter your happy little paranoid world, but sometimes the US is NOT the bad guy. Shocking, but true.

I too was tired of seeing threads about the neferious reasons countries were there, and it really warmed my heart to know that the Haitians know why were there.

We have sent our nations best rescue teams to help these poor folks and watching a clip like this really drives the mission home. Without these rescue squads these survivors would be left for dead and would just be scooped up by a backhoe. I can't even begin to imagine the feeling of being pulled from the rubble like this.

Great Post!! and Great job to all of the teams who are helping down there.

No conspiracy here!! Just Good Will!!

The US has done amazingly under the circumstances, they deserve all the credit they get. I'm not a fan of US foreign policy, but can recognise a genuine act of aid and relief. Other countries may have helped, but without the economic and military resources of the United States,many more haitians would be dead by now.

Great thread!

Where's France? Venezuela? China?

But the US is the only evil thing in this world. mm-hmmm

Venezuela sent some earthmoving equipment and a few personel and food. China sent food I think... You know when it really come to it, The US and EU really help... Imagine what the world would be like with out America? I know we are a far from perfect nation, but we try.

Nice to see the USofA get some kudos for a change.
There have been some greedy, rich Americans that have donated more than most countries will ever do.
This may be one of the last few times the US may be able to provide assistance, since we are quickly becoming a third world country, so it's good someone was able to film and archive this.

This is really awesome, though I'm sure Obama will try to take credit for this at some point soon.

well they like us now... but pretty soon when they think they have had enough of us...then the names start and the demands and all the rest...


personally i wonder why we do what we do for so many different nations... they like us for the moment and get what they can and then screw you ... get out.

guess being of good heart is often not enough...

In this video, the "american government" isn't doing the rescue. These are just regular citizens. The way it should be in a crisis. I didn't see anybody wearing FEMA garb. Are we talking about americans or the american government being the bad guy?

We can't rule out the possibility of US initiated disasters based on hidden NWO agenda. Because of that, I reluctantly applaud.

"That's staged". I'm still new here, so help me out. Is "that's staged" like "that looks shopped" on other forums?

For whatever reason be it mostly our government, the u.s has a bad image at the moment, but i think this drives the message that even tho our government may or may not be corrupt the average u.s citizen cares. Those firefighters are average joes leaving their families for who knows how long to help those people. say what you will about our government, but u.s citizens know we are very fortunate to live in the land of milk and honey, and we truly have big hearts and want to help those less fortunate.

God bless those firefighters and the haitian people.

Let me explain something to everybody here. First of all some Americans do care about the health and well being of Haitians. However the U.S had previously prevented some Caribbean nations from going to Haiti to help out with the relief effort. Why? Why would they leave Caribbean nations who are their neighbours out in the cold. Today a newspaper article highlights the fact that Latin American nations are being prevented from going into Haiti to provide aid. Why? If you care about a nation you do not and will not prevent people from trying to assist them. That is why it looks like America is the only one doing anything because they have and are preventing some nations from going in to help.

Below is a newspaper article that highlights that fact:

Unfortunately, the bad always seems to overshadow the good we do.

Have you ever been in a rescue attempt?

I might not have been in the situation these gentlemen were but I have been in situations where even though I am standing there with no hands on at the moment I was there lending support and anything else that was needed.

Actually I was in this situation last night. There were two people responding to a fellow who had collapsed while everyone else that should have been helping just stood by. I did not put hands on the guy but I did find any device they needed. I found pen light and had an extra O2 canister ready if needed. Sadly though despite the efforts of our minimally trained team the guy died. We actually thought he was at a safer point because just before they put him in the ambulance he was talking, just minutes later he was flat lined and did not resuscitate.

Just because some of the firemen are standing there doing “nothing” as you deem it does not mean they are not there to fill in as support as is needed. Firemen form lines and have multiple backups just in case another falls. Their job is to rescue people and they do that by risking their lives. Besides it is easy to judge when you are sitting in front of the computer. If you have a problem with how they are doing their job I suggest you go down there and provide some help yourself.

I think this is great and deserved...

Regardless of the fact that we do have some very sick agendas within govt, this has in the end nothing to do with the American people...the rescue workers who in the end have no idea or involvement with anything than you or I.

Just like the rescue workers at 911 deserved the praise they were given for bravery so do these men so do the American people which regardless of any conspiracy support these actions and wish the people of Haiti well.

But with that said... The people of America and The people in Charge are not the same people.

Anything is possible, deception is not called an ART for no reason.
