after high-level U.S. officials visited Haiti and promised more resources for Haiti’s National Police, including another $15 million to help reduce gang violence
Why are we helping Haiti

Because they have lots of little children that our leaders can 'adopt' ?

I’m asking, but I’m not really silly, I know they are sending millions there, but the Haitian people won’t see a penny of it. It will slide right into the back door pocket of different US and Haitian politicians as usual. The question should be, why are we OK with this?

a reply to: JAGStormIt may have something to do with the Christian heritage of the US. How do you help the poor and unfortunate. You help to feed clothe and shelter them. Isn't this in the Bible? I know it was when I went to church when I was young?
Feed the needy. We had outreach programs for the poor. Our church sponsored community projects to help our neighborhoods. Isn't this the same thing on a much larger scale? Our Christian nation helps another nation? We take them in here and house them for a bit and help them to find jobs? Help them support their families?
I mean, just like you ask, why else? It's a sink hole. Climate change is going to destroy the rubble that it is now. There is no future there, it's over for that place. So why, is a very good question.
