How many lives could they haves saved? How much relief could they have given? How many infections could they have prevented?
A quote I just heard this morning on Meet the Press. A US general being interviewed is asked, "How many US troops will it take to get Haiti secure?"
And this general had just said he has not witnessed any violence in Haiti. He was in the streets of Port au Prince yesterday and had good encounters with everyone.
Sigh. They are preparing for the impending violence. Air space is being used by the US military stalling the help further.
Haiti needs food! There are still people trapped in the rubble.
3 million people need food. Some people are getting food and water. People are getting medical treatment.
Haitian Times Newspaper have sent reporters to Haiti! They landed in the Dominican Republic and made their way to Port au Prince.
