Chile was ready for quake, Haiti wasn't

Feb 27, 2010 | Posted by: roboblogger | Full story: Buffalo News

The earthquake in Chile was far stronger than the one that struck Haiti last month - yet the death toll in this Caribbean nation is magnitudes higher.

You useless sack of flesh. You despite the fact that this thread is about Chile, you need to degrade Haiti and put down Canadians. Well lets go.
It was the policies of the US and French govenments who imposed policies that has kept the people of Haiti in poverty.
As to how much we helped the French, you uninformed putz, No one in Europe was wringing their hands, doing nothing while waiting on us to save them. The French, like the Italians and the British, had a very aggressive and successful resistance movement in place. If any one needs thanks, they should give thanks for in the war, it would be Russia, who lost 60mil people in the effort to fight the Nazis. If they had not been distracted with fighting the Russians, America would have lost a lot more troops. BTW, Canada had forces in the invasion of Normandy beach. Not only that, they were involved in most campaigns that Britain was involved in. Canada saved our butts more than you will ever know or most history books you read in high school will admit as they turned back and destroyed German U boats that tried to invade them and us from the north.
We did thank them for there help by falsifying documents of known Nazi war criminals and sending them to Canada.
On 9/11 Canada offered room and board to thousands of Americans trapped in Canada. Mostly private people gave board to 30k Americans that were diverted when US airspace was closed. They sent rescuers to help search the rubble.
Mr. Bush thanked them, but was the first president in US history that refused to speak to the canadian parliament. Instead, he stood at the Halifax airport and thanked them. Talk about spit in the eye! That was all they could do with out being invited into the country. See, Even the US canīt just go into a sovereign nation.
Stop watching your John Wayne movies, Fox and audio versions of Mien kampf and go to the library so you can stop looking like a fool.
Just because the rest of the world does not brag on themselves, does not mean that they were not active.
haha! thats awesome!! way to put him/her in their place! its sad to see such errogant people in the world, especially when they dont know the facts!!

So I assume we can expect Canada's "military" to fly in some aid to Chile instead of America doing it?

We should just buy Haiti and make them all American citizens. That way in a few years they would be civilized middle class and decadent like us. They could come and go as they pleased. Their standard of living would be raised to be among the highest in the world. Rich Americans would turn their little fourth world hell hole into a tropical paradise. They would all have jobs and life would be good.
Thank you! In fact, Obama is already considering making all Haitians legal US citizens, and letting them move to the US while their country rebuilds.

Jesus, Mary and Joseph! Do you turn on any thing other than Fox?

This is how it works when a disaster hits a country. If the country needs help, they request international aid. Each country can choose to commit resources to the effort. Those resources may be as little as engineers to give advice over the phone or as big as military peacekeepers.
Now Chile has sad that they will except international aid. That aid is not always a government agency, even when it is from the US. For example, save the children was the first agency on the ground there. it is not a government agency at all. Next came the British red cross, who released several million euro to their counterpart in Chile.
As to direct aid from Canada, Prime minster Harper said:“Canada stands ready to provide any necessary assistance to the people of Chile during this time of need. Our officials in Santiago are contacting appropriate Chilean authorities to determine whether Canadian assistance may be required,”
They are at about the same point that the US is in determining what aid to deliver to Chile.
Chile is next to 11 other countries that can get anything that they need to them before we can gas up a plan to fly it there, including 2 territories owned by the UK and France. Lots to disasters happen in LA that you certainly never hear about on Fox, that they take care of without asking the US for anything.
It is people like you that remind me of the old commercial that said,"A mind is a terrible thing to wast".

Make Haiti a state and give it to the blacks. They can make it into a wonderful, beautiful, properous country. Oh wait, it already belongs to the blacks. So does New York City, and New Orleans, and Washington D.c., and well, you get the picture.

I think there are only 3 million Haitians. There are 20 million Mexican illegals in this country. I think the Haitians would be very grateful for the opportunity, much more so than many latins. We'd have 3 million new citizens and Haiti would finally have a sustainable economy. That would be a good use for all that socialist energy in Washington.

But I am sure you will be the first to blame Obama when you wake up and realize that the relationship that we should have had with them was stifled by racism by folks like you.
I'm sure that as you bounce of to church every Sunday, sometime you have heard that the first shall be last and the last shall be first. Sometimes it is the karma that is more important than the economy
You forgot to mention how China kills thier own people for having a difference with the government. Great place to live!

Well, to me it is a lot like what we did after 9/11 when we falsely accused Americans of being terrorist. One case that comes to the front of my mine is the case of a Islamic converted lawyer in the US who was married to a Arab Muslim woman and aided Muslims who were the focus of witch hunts in the months and years following 9/11. He was arrested and put in Gitmo for several months after the bombing of the Madrid trains, despite the Spanish government insistent that he had nothing to do with it, his name was paraded on TV, his law firm impacted, his life trashed and he was tortured. He is the one that there is a name and a face that we know. How about the hundreds of Americans that we sent overseas for rendition and in order to keep them quite about how we tortured them, we stripped them, natural born US citizens, of their citizenship and sent to the country that perhaps their parents or grandparent's were from or any middle eastern country that would take them. Countries that they had no connection to linguistically or emotionally. Not one country on the planet has clean hands or nears perfection.
Death can be in small doses.

I agree with the many "educated" comments you have made. On this note, would you mind change your spelling from "Chili" to "Chile" thank you.

Force of habit as I have chili on the brain far more often then Chile. I think that typo and all you got my point. As I was there just 2 wks before the quake, I know how it is spelled, read my following posts past the one your commenting on, I already self corrected, and considering that I can not go back and edit any post, your concern is a moot point, but thank you for proofing. Now can you do the same for the comments that slammed Canada?
