Devastation in Typhoon’s Path Slows Relief in Philippines

Philippines-Typhoon Haiyan

CEBU, Philippines — The scale of the devastation and the desperation wrought by one of the most powerful storms ever to buffet the Philippines came into much clearer view on Monday, three days after it hopscotched across the country’s midsection whipping up monstrous walls of seawater...

So why wasn't the Philippes ready for this...these guys are hit by Typhoons all the time.

You know, a country might think why waste the money to prepare for this...the world and the USA will bail us out.

NJ is still a wreck from our hurricane and our people are suffering...and 100s of millions of dollars are going to the Philippines to bail them out?

We are degrading our poorly funded military and our equipment helping these guys out...

So how about a USA international insurance system or disaster medical plant. A nation pays us so much a year...if a natural disaster happens we will throw everything we have to bail you out depending on what plan your nation chose.

It is a moral hazard if we keep bailing out these poor managed countries with endemic and systemic corruption!

I think you are on to something Mulligan. We could call it the Affordable Disaster Relief Act. Countries would be required to buy insurance or we would cut off foreign aid. We would require countries in Africa say, to buy insurance against ice/snow damage and countries like Iceland to buy typhoon insurance. That way the pool would be "strong", and we could offer different deductibles and out of pocket maximums. We could call the "best" plans platinum and the lower end plans bronze or copper or tin even.
Then they could enroll on a website and it would be smooth as silk.
And if countries already had insurance they could keep it. Period. And if the liked their Disaster Relief Professional they could keep them too.
It's brilliant.

Right everything is about entertaining us...

according to Wikipedia-

Nuclear power in the Philippines
Nuclear power was considered as a solution to the 1973 oil crisis, in which the Philippines was affected. The Bataan Nuclear Power Plant was built in the early 1980s but never went into operation because it sits on a tectonic fault and volcano. The Fukushima nuclear disaster gave pause to efforts to revive the plant.[1]


Under a regime of martial law, Philippine President Ferdinand Marcos in July 1973 announced the decision to build a nuclear power plant. This was in response to the 1973 oil crisis, as the Middle East oil embargo had put a heavy strain on the Philippine economy, and Marcos believed nuclear power to be the solution to meeting the country's energy demands and decreasing dependence on imported oil.[2]

Construction on the Bataan Nuclear Power Plant began in 1976. Following the 1979 Three Mile Island accident in the United States, construction on the BNPP was stopped, and a subsequent safety inquiry into the plant revealed over 4,000 defects. Among the issues raised was that it was built near major earthquake fault lines and close to the then dormant Pinatubo volcano.

///

Gee, only 4,000 defects and near a major fault lines etc.? REAL nuketards like those of Entergy would see no problem with those things!

So are ewe'all ready for the big shutdown of the Grid and blackouts this week?

^Could be just a test for when they do it for real and set off an EMP attack and have the ChiCom & Ruskie troops enforce martial law on us.

Where was CNN in the pre catastrophe sequence asking the troubling question of what would the Philippines look like if a cat 5 hurricane struck the Philippines? Where was their imagination in projecting the current failures of the Philippines government and the world government to be able to respond in a mega hurricane?

I get it, they couldn’t make money on this and get the adequate amount of viewership...

They only make money on watching the voyeuristic suffering and pleading with the world to come to the rescue with a prolong delay built into the system.

You know our state department and the Philippines would have a hissy fit if they warned this country...

They do this over and over again...

Most of the typhoon area has antigovernment insurgency issues. Will they take advantage of this?

And all old US navy sailors have great stories while in Subic Bay. All of us complained about the expense of prostitutes worldwide except in the Philippines. The girls would just take everything in our fat wallets except in the Phillipines.

It was really cheap to rent a whole apartment and with a pretty girl supplied...she’d be your sex and cooking/ cleaning slave for mere pennies for months on end

That is why they threw our Navy out of the Philippine.

And Subic Bay was a military depot for the Vietnam War and our interest throughout Asia...

We ruined it all?
