When you have nothing and there appears to be nothing COMING then people will look to survive and EMBRACE anything..... Nazi Germany in the 30's the
people had little , inflation was crippling people, extremism took over and we know the rest.....
You make a very good point. HOWEVER giving money does one thing, it enriches the scum that collect the money. I live in Honduras which is has still
not been given over $1.4 billion in money assigned to them. Ask the countries concerned what they did with it and the reply is "I was not in
government at that time, sorry I can not tell you".
For Haiti hundreds of millions were raised and again hardly any of the money actually got to Haiti. The American Red Cross run by an ex president
raised hundreds of millions for the camps housing people and NONE of it got there!
Helping people is a MUST, but giving your money so some rich self serving scum bag can steal it, claiming administrative costs is pointless.
You are also forgetting the reason why the US is watching! They want chaos, they want anarchy, because it is their stated aim to invade them also.
What a great excuses to be invading yet another country to free them from more terrorist (people feeding, clothing and providing health care to the

Our governments allowed the equipment to be RENTED out to the commercial farms for a fraction of what they should have been rented for instead of
letting the poor farmers bring in their crops. So the rich got richer and the poor people had to let their crops rot.
