The earthquake in Haiti is for America and the New World Order a god send. We are aware of Haiti's past and recent present past condition, maybe not much people are aware, to those whose backing the New World Order, the Haitian disaster has not killed off enough people, As Yet.

Consider the fact, food, water and medicine was not distributed to the people because NO ONE was coordinating the distribution. How come? Medical supplies are in the sun on the tarmac of the airport in Haiti. A bunch of US soldiers are just walking around doing absolutely nothing about the distribution, now why is that? Where do you bring medical supplies, let me make a wild guess, to a hospital, even if that hospital is just a tent, thats my guess, whats yours. In any case US military don't have a clue, pretty smart guys, the US military. Can't hold it against them though, they are following Orders.

Lots of those medicines needs to be refrigerated, for example antibiotics, needs to be kept cool. In my simple mindedness I can only conclude, the US was/ is hoping for an all-out rioting, sure there has been some plundering and rioting but not on the scale one would expect. And the medical supplies will be distributed when, for example the above mentioned antibiotics has become hazardous for human beings.

The Haitian people has surprised everyone, even though they have lost everything, they are keeping their surroundings clean, washing their clothes and are bathing, thus exercising basic hygienic rules. The dead are buried in mass graves, quite unbecoming but the number one priority is to avoid a catastrophic outbreak of diseases.

America will do its best to create more unrest and drive this nation further and deeper into desperation just to step up and act the grand saviour.

Normally I would have donated my two euros however since I'm aware the majority of these monies will end up paying the salaries of the employees of charitable organisations I have stopped my small contributions.

I wonder how it will play out in Haiti, strangely the Haitian president was sadly missing in most news coverage. Was he by chance being briefed by the Americans? Signing away his country and people's rights for a bag of rice and contaminated medical supplies? Your guess is as good as mine.

Why blame the USA maam?? Which other countries or country will organize help for an earthquake devastated population centered around Port au Prince. If you do not want to donate, that is fine, there are other humanitarians in USA and elsewhere, who will willingly donate their money to help these people, and I am one of them. You live in Spain, did anyone of you guys offered any help to the ailing nation. These people need URGENT HELP, so what should the USA do?? sit down on their laurels and let other nations go there to help, like Guyana. Does Guyana have the resources tohelp anyone. Jugdeo is a phoney, there are many people living in abject poverty in Guyana. What has he done to help them??? He does not have children, so he does not understand. Most of your criticisms here are a waste of time. People , like you who write CRAP, but cannot do anything, but mischieously try to dig up rubbish and allude to irrelevant matters before writing sense. Minus USA's help can you see a different picture? Haiti needs USA and they are doing their best to help those people, rather than worry about politics and Jugdeo's nonsense, ther is no obstacle. The haitian govt, is not SHUT down by USA, everyone is open to go there and help. Miss Veronica you are welcome to come to Haiti and help or do mind. The food supplies and medicines are being distributed, as more supplies are being replaced by more. So everything has it order in distribution.,,etc. You are feel free to go there and distribute, if you wnt.

Do you think the US is the only country helping Haiti?
I am blaming the US for delaying the distribution of needed supplies, supplies that were laying around, while people were lined up waiting for them, It is advisable to look at some of CNN reportage. Dr.Sanjay Gupta chief medical correspondent went to the airport collected a few medication and brought it to a hospital. It took him 25 minutes to collect some. Maybe you should consider how well and with what speed help was given Katrina victims and this was in the US. The whole world knows the help given to Katrina's victims was late and next to nothing, are you aware Europe had given help to these American citizens too?

There are a bunch of Europeans in Haiti with the rescue and medical teams, millions of Euros has been collected for immediate and long term aid to Haiti. Supplies has been shipped from European Nations to Haiti, however you must consider America is closer to the Caribbean than Europe. For your information the citizens of Holland has donated more than 83 million euros which will be doubled by the government of Holland for the Haitian nation. If you want to know the extent of assistance rendered to Haiti by Europe I will gladly oblige. I do not pretend to be well informed, but in these matters I seem to bear a bit more knowledge than you. But then again I am not brainwashed by America.

The Americans had indeed shut down the airport.

Where Guyana is concern I don't really care what resources they have, whether or not they are equipped to render assistance to any nation in need.

Haiti Do Not Need the US, Haiti needs are humanitarian right now, which is being supplied by World Organisations, this includes the US, the US is just One of the Nations rendering assistance, it is not the Only Nation, however they were very late with the distribution of supplies. As much as you may want the US to be glorious we in Europe knows better.

Veronica, why are you so bitter about the USA. Dr Gupta is a reporter/medical doctor from USA and he and all the other physicians are there to help these people. If the possibilty arises that they should oversee the distribution there is no obstacle as the military are all ready for this eventualitiues. You are saying that USA is nearby, and they are accessible to Haiti, they did not hesitate to go out there and help, whlist the so-called Euro help are still in transit. They do not need money right now, but tangible help. I have not seen any Euro medical or food supplies reaching Haiti as yet. The USA has provided immense help to this nation, without looking over their shoulder. But, people like you will only gloat over some little mistake, and ready to pull your guns to shoot the country that is helping..Whatever knowlegde you bear about the facts keep that to yourself, this is a country that need URGENT help from all corners. I am not trying to glorify USA, but they have reached out quickly to help. Other help from other nations etc, are all needed to help these people. I am not saying they have not offered to help. Katrina was a different story, since there were a lot of mistakes made, but then again people blew that out of proportions to set off believers like you. Now , lets put aside our angry emotions and try to pray and hope that those people in Hailti have all the help- they need,

FYI I have not disputed the fact that there are other countries helping, which is fine. Since USA had vested so much interest in the country finacially with no positive results this, is not the issue. The country needs tangible help because of this terrible earthquake phrnomena., The accesssibibilty to encouter these types of devastated situation needs URGENT assistance. Since, USA was nearby as also indicated by Veronica, they had all the resources to help and they did not hesitate. You have to get your facts right, seeing that it was the USA that stepped in to help quickly. Go back and check the records, Now this situation demands help from all corners, which mean that everyone in the world must step uo to the plate and help. I have not denied this as you are trying to insinuate.
I have realized in your comment that you are mixing political inuendos with conjectures and suspicions. If Bush and Clinton are chosen to be ambassadors for the USA, in my opinion that is relevant and significant. Also, you must realise that both of these persons have donated to the cause, no point in disproving this. You have built your ego on suspicion, but it is not fair to brand these people as theives,. The organization they have formed to raise funds are also overseen by a majority of Haitians, it is simply absurd to say why they will want to fill their pockets. Is that how you assess everybody??? There is no time for political bias, this is a time where everyone in the world needs to come together and HELP these people.Keep your negativity in your pocket for a while and look to assist humans. Carter is a good man and what he has done is appropriate for humanity. In his Presidetial days USA had the worst economic growth and crisis, he never knew how to manage the country. But, since he resurfaced he tried to recover from his past to build his morale back. He did well. We need new faces to encounter these types of situations for humanitarian reasons. You have to give people a chance, so nothing is wrong with Clinton and Bush. Now other countries have to do the same thing with their ex pres..etc. I know a lot of you guys hate Americans, and you have a right to do that. But, none of you seems to complain about Castro, Chavez, Admedijan, Kim ii Sung, etc. Why??? You live here and still you want to crimininalize them. Look what is happening in Guyana with all these criminals Jagdeo have on board, you think they will last in US congress. Think!!!!

solace i thgink your mental faculty is small or saturated with irrelevancies . you do not seem to have too much political knowledge .your mental characteristic do not show signs of learning .no country give aid without receiving a kickback . as i said jimmy carter was best suited cause he helped haiti and knew how to go about it without the rest of the world .he made changes for guyana too , thasts how the ppp in power now .WHAT DIDNT HAPPEN IN A LIFE TIME CANT HAPPEN IN A YEAR .WHAT THE RAIN DIDNT FILL IN A YEAR THE DEW CANT FILL IN A LIFETIME .dictators was supported for so many years to keep down the haitian ppl.when they were removed there were elements still in power to maintain that order . solace yoiu need to do more research and get your immature act together . veronica is more knowledgable than you .i helped the ppp govt at the beginning after the pnc was removed .but i saw jukdeo and his bunch of gay lovers trying to gain power in the ppp , to be powerful and take away all power from black ppl i run away from guyana .i see racist elements in the ppp and knew the country going bad . that give rise to ppl like fineman etc . thasts why the black prison guards help their brothers escape from prison to rob rich indians .jukdeo and ppp caused that .

Positive vibes, I think you have a better understanding than this grotesque character who called himself Siddiki, On the contrary Siddiki you are the one who needs to repeatedly recheck your mental faculties. If you have any, however your faculties are injured very badly, as you come on this blog and babble NONSENSE. In your eyes everyone is bad. What do you teach your children or relatives??? Do you have any love for yourself, or do you expect that people will read your CRAP and commend you. Do you remember "RASPUTIN, THE MAD MONK", that is the type of character you represent. Or better yet, Sherlock Holmes.....The irrelevancies started with you and your devious thinking. In this state of affairs you are trying to politicize the Haitian problem. These are humanitarian concerns, but yet demons like you are only waiting for a chance to slander everyone. Look old man go and do some meditation and have some peace of child, because you are like the churning volcano ready to EXPLODE in yourself. Furthermore, I will not waste my energy with a BIG jerk like you.

Solace you seem not to have understood, I am sure this is due to my lack at comprehensive writing. Dr. Gupta himself complained that the supplies were not being distributed which was mainly due to lack of a coordinator. He went to the airport, collected a few badly needed medical supplies and gave it to a hospital. My point is if he can collect such medication and deposit it at a health facility, why was it not being distributed by the US army.I am not denying US assistance, just their lack of distribution in the early days.

The US was indeed the first to arrive, this is a common trait of the US, you may also recall Hillary Clinton found it necessary to go to Haiti and declare US will assist Haiti. Question. Why was this necessary? Clinton presence in Haiti was a clear signal to the rest of the world. And this my dear is politics.

My dear, simply because you did/ do not see on American tv assistance given by other nations do not mean other nations had not given assistance. Assistance ranging from primary needs, to search and rescue teams were sent to Haiti. The US closing the airport delayed much needed supplies from other nations. Even cruise ships that had docked at Petite Paradise delivered supplies. While in Port au Price many were homeless on the other side Petite Paradise were entertaining tourists from the cruise ships.

Nations all over the world reached out to Haiti, each according to their own speciality. There are no angry emotions on my part,the non distribution was/ is incomprehensible to me. I used Katrina as an example simply because it was on US soil, but as you said it was blown out of proportions, maybe Katrina's victims will agree with you.
We in Europe are of the opinion if Katrina had hit another part of the US, one mostly populated by white middle class Americans it would have been a totally different ball game.
My dear you do the hoping and praying for both of us, I'll take a back seat and wait and see how it plays off.

You have not ruptured my nerves, fyi they are intact. I like to make comments with civilty. But you seem to be so troubled and desperate, that you manufacture rumours and scandals about people. You have made a lot of derogatory remarks that you fail to recognise what you have done to yourself. Again, you are claiming that yoy know politics, but you have yet to prove in your comments any political views that are clearly stipulated. Furthermore, I have not attacked Veronica, agin showed your deficiency in logical arguments. This actally display your total weakness for understanding other views. Each of us form our critique to stimulate thinking. If you read V comment below you will understand how well she organized her response, and what you understnd showed that you are totally devoid or cannot comprehend thae issues. Sorry, but I still feel that you are a demented, sick person who needs regressive therapy. If you claim that you have knowledge then I have not observed any. My only analysis of you, is that you suffer from pre-disposing traumatic syndrome which controls you demonic behavior. You are the one who has to look in the mirror, which I guess you have been doing for ages, but yet cannot make a civil change. Look old man, re-check yourself, you will need a lot of help.

despise America's foreign policy immensely. as per Veronica.""" "

"I, myself do not agree with most of America's foreign policy, but I do not disagree with all of them. Inasmuch, I have disagrred with other countries foreign policies, including Holland's and Spain. When Forein policies are directed to solve problems in a diplomatic way, when there is iniatives to to help people and countries , etc, in a positive manner and with transparency. I will agree and support that. As for now Haiti needs help, there is no need to create controversy over minor matters and to maximize a humanitarians effort for political gains. This 7 year old kid fro Britain rode his bicycle for miles to generate funds for Haiti, more than 160, 000 dollars. Is he looking for a 'kickback'?? I admire him. We have an organization here with everyone of all races collecting funds and packages or donations to send to these people. I love doing this work, helping people. I have always volunteered. Haiti needs help, so why do we have to politicize the situation. I love people and regardless of what USA's foreign policies are, that does not stigmatize my effort to help."

My dear Veronica, you must remember the type of situation that earthquake disaster can create, There were many efforts to help distribute the medical supplies, but you must remember that there were numerous people that were injured, and most of the medical supplies were used up. Some fraction of mismangement were responsible for this. However, the American physicians were the ones who wanted to speed up the distribution because of so many injuries, They ensured that the supplies did not remain stationery, but have to be distributed and I commend them for overseeing this problem and get these supplies to the needy. They are there for this purpose also, and they are doing their best. There were no costraint is refusing to distribute this. If you go to Haiti, you will be surprise

There is no need to go into detail, however there was no lack of distribution. Nothing happens by "using a magic wand". I was just trying to make a point, it does not have to do with your comprehensive writing, since ther is no difficulty in your writing that I should be :begging the question". Your writing was fine, but you will have to understand other views.

I will not agree with you on this one, "a common trait" HUH!! So if they had stayed back and offered no help and waited for your country to come their aid, can you imgine your political dogmas reverberating in your poor head, my dearest. As for Hillary Clinton she is doing her job, and if it is political then the lady knows what she is doing. Anyone is necessary to go to that country and appease that nation , if Jagdeo wants to go there, fine. Even, you are welcome.

My dearest, Do you think the funds that we are collecting here in millions, foods, supplies to send to Haiti are for only "immediate help" and not lon term help. We will continue in our quest to help these people, until they tell us to stop. Perchance USA and those you hate are sending only immediate assistance, if that is your understanding. With all due respect, why are you trying to politicize this isssue? Sorry, V but you have showed some naivity here.

I , actually , am not denying that they came afterrwards, they were shown on the American TV and I applaud them for their efforts.I do not know if the Airport was operational because some areas were shown to be destroyed by the earthquake. If, what you are saying is clearly evidential then US deserved to be denounced for this. At least there are other accessible areas to come in. Dominica nearby had opend up their airports to all intenational intervention. So there are other ways to come in.If Paradise were entertaining , that is their business. I will not intervene.
