Haiti: Opportunity Knocks!


'Amidst the Suffering, Crisis in Haiti Offers Opportunities to the US'

"...in addition to providing humanitarian assistance, the US response to the tragic earthquake in Haiti offers opportunities to reshape Haiti's long - dysfunctional government and economy as well as to improve the public image of the United States in the region...

Actually, never mind - we'll just continue this here, since the threads are basically about the same thing.
