I am sorry, that a country that has never achieved anything in its behalf, except total and utter capitulaion in the face of the enemy, would put forward such a frivilous complaint. Haiti is like negative amortiztion, the more you put into it the less its worth. They've no contribution to the world economy except that it has developed into a money pit, rift with corruption. Leave Haiti to its own devices and let its french-based culture marry up with France and save itself. Wasn't Haiti a French colony from the outset.

I personally, will not give another dime over what they are usurping from our National treasury in the deployment of equipment, manpower, and other logistical items, which is no small amount. There's nothing worth redeeming in Hades, oops, Haiti. We are wasting our assets! Why must we always be the biggest, first, and most burdened responder in foreign disasters. What happened to their neighbors, Venezuela, Mexico, Panama, etc. in the southern hemisphere. Oh, that's right, let the foolish gringos do it and we can save our resources for ourselves.

U.S. out of Haiti, let the rest of the international community handle the problem as they see fit. We've got enough on our plate with psychpaths in Iran,Iraq and the Afghans!
