    France and America bicker as Haiti aid fails to reach city - Times Online

    Thoughts?

    It's of my opinion that France is merely trying to place blame before someone places blame on France for the condition of Haiti before the Earthquake and presently.

    Ummmm....Hasn't Haiti been occupied since at least '94, when Bubba sent the troops in to prop up Aristide?

    Id say the French have absolutely no place to complain when they screwed up that nation so badly to begin with.

    We've already got Detroit, Memphis, Atlanta, Washington DC and Pine Bluff. We don't need Haiti.

    That's my point and why I think they're trying to place blame. Before people point out this little fact more and more.

    I would like to know more about this. I know the Russians, the Cubans and the Israelis are there in big numbers. If the US is letting in the Cubans, how is it the French can't get in?

    Israel is further than France, and they have been there since Saturday. The Russians moved on Saturday as well.

    France is a great place to visit and I love the people, but sometimes the country is just one giant douchebag.
