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...
While on the ground in Haiti, the US military can also interrupt the nightly flights of cocaine to Haiti and the Dominican Republic from the Venezuelan coast and counter the ongoing efforts of Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez to destabilize the island of Hispaniola..."
I was listening to the radio this morning about the Earthquake in Haiti. From what I understood there were a list of countries, US, UK, France, and I think three or four others sending disaster assistance to Haiti, Canada was not on the list as we are "furthering our investigation in the necessities of the situation." Does any one have more information on what we're doing?
