You’ve Done It Again

January 20, 2010

Yes, you’ve f*cked over another country comprehensively.

The international airport in Port-au-Prince already looks like it has been turned into an American military base, with GIs armed with automatic weapons at the entrance to arrivals, and servicemen and women unloading water and supplies.

However, outside the airport they can barely be seen apart from the occasional Humvee caught in traffic near the runway gates.

What is your problem? Why on earth do you fetishize guns and humvees so?

Francoise Saulnier, head of the legal department of aid group Medicins sans Frontieres (Doctors without Borders) said days had been lost because the main airport in Port-au-Prince, now under U.S. control, had been blocked by military traffic.

“We lost three days,” she told Reuters Television in an interview. “And these three days have created a massive problem with infection, with gangrene, with amputations that are needed now, while we could have really spared this to those people.”
