    Violent protests over cholera break out in Haiti, U.N. peacekeepers wounded | cleveland.com

    Should we insist the US send aid?

    Your thoughts?

    Where is teepeesamoroid to laugh at their plight?

    So sad...if only they would or could boil their water before drinking it.

    I dun mean to seem uncaring, but cholera has been a terrible plague in Africa for some time now....it scares me that this has reached our part of the world. I want to assume that it cannot gain a foothold in the US, but I'm not so sure.

    Meanwhile, should we sending aid, IYO?

    No, it can't. Thanks to our social programs we actually have clean drinking water right out of the tap.

    Not everywhere in the US, Ravi...though I agree, in most places. And the first I'd be alarmed about is Puerto Rico and the US Virgin Islands.

    Our immigration policy is too strong, impossible for the cholera to reach here.

    Where is Obama, we should of stepped in, its barbaric that people should die of this simply treated disease.

    Obama is unable to react to disasters no matter where or what kind.

    PR and the Islands also have potable water and decent plumbing.

    Don't be so paranoid.

    Haiti, a failed nation, not all islands on earth are big enough to be a nation, in this case Haiti is half an Island, the other half the Dominican Republic. A thousand people dead and the treatment is water and salts, Gatorade can save their lives yet they are dead.

    What happened, why, seems like someone needs their butt kicked. Make the island one state, under god, under the USA. Save the people, Haiti is a failed nation. When will people learn not all people have the education nor experience to survive as a tiny nation.

    Gatorade is part of the treatment, a part that will allow them to live.
