Well, we are working on Katrina II here. A lot of picture taking, posing for cameras, words of compassion, but no food, water or shelter for the people.

For those curious, here is a picture of the UN high energy biscuit: http://www.wfp.org/stories/high-energy-biscuits-food-emergencies


P.S. If you are wondering why the US troops are still at the airport and in ships, it's because there is a backroom squabble going on between the US and Haiti officials. There was an earlier squabble this week concerning the airport itself (over control, which equals money).

The Haitian leaders need to get confirmation from Ms. Clinton herself that they will be able to skim the coming billion dollar construction contracts. Of course, the American politicians are pros at this, since they look at governance in the same way. It's not always easy to be a banana republic, even if you fly the red, white and blue; but it pays well.

BREAKING NEWS!

Deal reached. Clinton cooperative and all smiles. Haiti leaders get their (personal$) aid package....

Then, this appears on CNN,

(CNN) -- 5:32 p.m. -- U.S. troops hand out some 2,500 meals in Port-au-Prince in the first American food aid distributed in Haiti since Tuesday's earthquake. [01-16-10]


AMAZING.

Billion dollar construction contracts??? What kind of rebuilding are we talking about???

It should not cost that much to rebuild shanty towns built with refrigerator boxes.

Well, that was back in the day when Americans could send their old refrigerator boxes down to Haiti. Nowdays, Americans hold on to their refrigerator boxes, in case they lose their house.

I was watching on the news today and some Haitian police were running off looters at a Citibank down in Haiti. I said to myself it was about time they looted a mega bank, since the mega banks had been looting Haiti for years. Of course, Citi has gotten around to looting my pocket too.

I just hope with all our troops down there, and our "logistic experts", we can finally get around to handing out some food, water and medicine instead of posing for cameras and making speeches. (I don't blame it on our troops. It's generally the generals that hold the works up).

Crow, I read this today: "Then if the foreigners don't come (with aid)," said Jacqueline Thermiti, "it will be up to baby Jesus."

The problem is that the rich of the world have the baby Jesus tied up with their prayers for a good day in the market, or the next plastic surgery or get-young-quick treatment! Please rich folks, stop praying for a while so the baby Jesus can hear the prayers of those who really need help!
