Dictators will use any situation, even a truly sad situation as this earthquake in Haiti, to spout their asinine nonsense. Luckily the people know that without this aid there would be an even greater disaster. And when the rain comes to Haiti they will need even more help. And, believe it or not, if Ecuador ever suffered such a disaster Correa knows the "imperialists" will be there with tons of help. Es verdad.

Funny isn't it? US citizens donated over 3 BILLION DOLLARS, while the entire CONTINENT of South America is helping with $300 Million!

Last time I checked, the US military was providing a lot of FREE help, in construction equipment, handing out food etc. Most of the organizations that are there are the Red Cross, the UN, Bill Gates, Microsoft, has donated a lot of money to help also. Hugo and Hugo;s lapdog Raffy are talking BS. I have no idea what they think their BS is going to gain them.

Last week, 200-250,000 people, marched against the Correa government, but Correa left for Cuba the day of the protest march. Might give you some idea where him and his family might be living after we WAKE UP here, and kick his sorry ass out of Ecuador!
