    Re: Why the hell should we be in Haiti anyways?

    People like to bash the US, but they forget the Marshal plan and the rebuilding of Europe after the utter destruction brought by years of total war. They forget how we picked up our enemies from the ground and rebuilt their nations and made them Allys. They forget, who stood between them and the Iron Curtain.

    Well, of course First Ladies are racists.

    When the earthquake hit Wenchuan, China with 69,195 killed, 374,177 injured and 18,392 missing you didn't see Laura Bush on TV asking for donations. Why? Just look at Laura and then at a Chinese. Kind of obvious isn't it.

    What a load of jingoist bollocks. America profited from ww2 like a bandit. Britain only made her last lend-lease repayment in 2007. This after handing over sovereignty of several strategic bases in the Caribbean, and countless secrets including the A bomb and the jet engine, so ensure America's tardy entry on our side. Thanks for the help.

    You mean 500000 dead?

    You mean rebuilding the worlds economy and putting other countries on their feet instead of moving taking over their cities and factories like the Ruskies?

    Better then being a region of Duetchland.

    Another thing I notice is the plight of the Haitian orphans. I can't help but notice the many white families reaching out and adopting these unfortunate little children. This is a heartwarming act, but yet, I don't see any black families stepping up to the plate to do the same thing. Perhaps there are black familiies adopting these children, but I haven't yet seen any on the news.
    And the thread got ruined in........

    Well murder is defined as wrong in the parameters of society, where only the state has the legal authority to kill, or allow others to kill. Thus a nation is not bound by those laws or ethics.

    I do not know her motives and personally dont really care as long as it helping those in need. She could be completely racist but as long as she is not doing anything illegal and it helps I think we should leave it at that. I also think this is how our countries leaders should be handling it over using American tax dollars. The American people are a giving and caring people. We should let those help that choose to while not forcing those that do not wish to.

    The earthquake was so severe that various things were lost there. From countless valuables to countless lives.
