Where is the President of Haiti? Children are dying of cholera and he should not be afraid to express his outrage towards the UN via media outlets. We are all aware that the UN is responsible for this crisis and the great humanitarian organization that they are has once again decided to turn their backs on dying children. They were prepared to drop $500 million into the hands of Assad of Syria but Haiti's poor get handed a death sentence. What was their crime? Drinking the water!

The UN hangs around Haiti like the last guest to leave the party. They don't want to help clean up, they don't want to leave, and they do want to keep consuming your alcohol until it's all gone. The UN is a pest bearing pestilence; cholera, specifically. Ban Ki Moon is a jellyfish that goes where the wave takes him. I would rather have Sponge Bob Square Pants running the UN circus than that sea snot.

It is very clear that the UN introduced cholera in Haiti. At the very beginning a vaccination program could have reduced the number of cases but the UN was more interested in a cover up. The organization acted cowardly by invoking the claim of immunity. The UN should take responsibility and compensate the victims. President Martelly should blast the UN response to the cholera epidemic and demand compensation without delay.

I am traveling to Haiti in less than 3 weeks. Maybe things will improve?
