    I would think that relief ships could dock at Cap Haitien area and then supplies could go overland!

    I saw a CNN report where there is great anger in the MASH units about how the US military can't get it together in Haiti. They still didn't have surgery capability yesterday.

    The IDF had a fully functional surgery, ICU and obstetrics ward by Saturday.

    What is going on in DC that the US military is far behind the Curve?

    The Cubans, Venezuelans and the Russians don't have the capability, but they are giving it their all. Where is the blockage that the US is doing so badly there?

    Money spent on wars here there and everywhere, for no bid contracts, for privatized services crony contracts, and then shortchangig those who actually are the defense troops, including the National Guard units... who would normally be sent out to help... who would normally have the equipment....

    You will notice that Blackwater, and Dyncorp, and Kellog, Brown and Root, and Halliburton are nowhere to be found, after all, no profit for them in Haiti!

    This is another gift from the "Oh, the market can do it better" folks, that want to privatize everything!
