Also, I am kind of stumped as to why people think rescuing an entire nation that has barely any infrastructure to begin with would be anything close to orderly or easy.
It's a ridiculous assumption and remember, no one had to go there in the first place. We could have all just let Haiti continue to rot and continue to wallow in despair upon despair.
The big question is what do we do with her afterwards? Do we bring them back to a level of where they were at? Where most of the country lived in handmade tin or plywood shacks and most of the people live in abject poverty or practice meager subsistence living?
Haiti is a poorly run country to begin with. Rife with corruption and overwhelmed with poverty.
I personally don't think Haiti is capable of independence. As a country they have dismally failed at it ever since they were given independence. They can't pay their debt and have to have it relieved. they can't get their population working and they can't get infrastructure or education and helathcare working properly.
It is one of the most poorly run countries in the western hemisphere. If not for help and handouts, they would all be dead.
