    LAVs may be needed to negotiate some of the ruined roads as well.

      I'm thinkin that there is gonna be a terrible toll that streches well beyond what we even now imagine.

      It's very good when swords can also be plowshires...

      Warriors can also be saviours...

      Prayers go with & to those in need!

        and the whole time the 82 nd, who is on the ground is asking When are the Marines going to get here?

          And the Marines are saying: "Don't worry, we're on our way, we'll be there in a couple days to take over and fix everything you screw up....."

            another Somalia on the way.

            We will have to shoot the Gangs who steal all the food, and the US will be painted as the most evil people on Earth for trying to help somebody besides the War-Lords, as is always the case.

            We pledge 100 million, China opts for 1 million, guess who comes out the winner, again.

              Just make sure the troops on the ground have loaded magazines in their weapons with more ammo handy...The Arkansas National Guard's 39th Infantry Brigade might be available to show the regulars how they cleaned up New Orleans!

                  Sadly the "blame America" process has already begun in some circles.Our good friends the French are now complaining that one of their aircraft was given low priority by American Air traffic Control personnel. Hopefully this just a minor squabble and not the start of a trend.

                  Hugo Chavez says we are using the earthquake as an excuse to occupy Haiti. Never one to miss any opportunity to attack the US to prop up your poor performance at home hey Hugo ?

                    Well,I guess if the French don't like it,they can try and take the airport away from us.Until then,shut up and wait your turn,Frenchy.

                      Just the typical hic-ups when operating in a new area without a defined set of rules. US ATC personnel seem to have acted in accordance with their standard operating procedures and cleared US military craft to the head of the queue. This meant that aircraft carrying aid (specifically food and medical supplies) were told to wait. Some eventually had to land in the Dominican Republic.

                      It would appear that everyone is now on side. A system of landing "slots" has been devised and a priority scheme to go with it. Food and medical flights will now go to the front of the queue.

                        Well, Im glad that they are getting things straight now. I hear reports of aid planes having to circle around waiting for silly VIP flights come in full of fools looking to get their photo-ops. The French seem to have a legitimate complaint.

                        And Feo Chavez and Danny Glover are on the same page. Let's see Venezuela send a team over without military escort as see how long they last.
                        They would probably join the 24 Americans that have already died over there.

                          One strange thing I read in one article is that in one town,Haitians upset over the delays in getting aid,created some roadblocks using dead bodies as a protest.So they created more delays because they were upset over the original delays.In another town,Haitians yelled at aid workers,saying"White guys go home!"Exorcist is 100% correct in comparing Haiti to Somalia.It's impossible to help people that will bite the hand that feeds them.It's impossible to help people that won't help themselves.It's turned into a political circus,where we can do nothing right.

                            Refrences! Until then it is just a barracks rumor for me. Exorcist isn't even 50% correct in comparing the two. Only thing they have in common is poor and black. Some concentrate on the 'black'

                              You forgot that they're also uppity and worship heathen voodoo gods!

                              Anyways, Has anybody else heard if the airport is running out of fuel? I've heard that a couple C-130s and a Doctors Without Borders flight (among others) got turned back yesterday.

                                Two jumbo jets carrying more than 220 doctors, nurses and other Israeli army personnel, including a rescue team and field hospital, are set to leave Israel later Thursday

                                ...

                                The field hospital will include surgical and emergency rooms and can service up to 500 people a day, the army said.
