What do you think now of the people in Haiti, with the men pushing ahead of the women and children and stomping over them to get the food for themselves, people throwing the food on the ground and refusing to eat it, building barricades across the roads of the dead bodies, the relief workers needing UN troop protection, the fighting and killing in the streets? Are you still happy that we are sending aid and millions of dollars to these people?

  • it's a very poor nation , still in alot of distress whenever there is disaster cayoss hits and looting, raping killing on and on happens the money needs to be managed approipretly when the time comes they can turn their country around but right now they still need to uncover bodies shelter and feed the living. it is also a nation where the men have multiple children from different women and never support any of them so so don't have expectations now

  • Yes, I am still happy we are sending aid to the people of Haiti......It is the right thing to do. There isn't a "purity code" for getting help. You don't JUDGE people before helping them. And helping them doesn't give you license to be their judges. The women and children being run over STILL need help, and you are lumping everyone in one category as if you KNOW something about them. Well, you don't.

  • Desparation makes people do irrational things. Don't you dare judge unless you have been buried under rubble, can't find your wife and kids and don't know where your next meal or drink is coming from. You have no clue. NONE.

    This whining and moaning about sending aid to Haiti is beyond PATHETIC. If you don't like it, move to another country. You won't be missed.

  • We do need to get more people in there to control the violence, and that is in progress right now, but that does not mean we should not be helping these poor people over there who have gone through a horrible tragedy and in all honesty are probably just trying to do their best to provide for their own families. Some of them are just out for themselves, I have no doubt about that. But you're telling me if you had to fight for every ounce of water or food you could for your kids to eat, you wouldn't be out there trying your best too? I don't condone the senseless acts of violence, but there needs to be some kind of controls put in place before they just drop food and supplies.

    They certainly arent getting it for their babies or children when they stand right there beside the road and eat/drink it themselves, snatching it right from babies hands--we've all seen this right on CNN. I wouldn't fault anyone for trying to feed their own children--even ahead of other people's children--we might all do that, but this isn't right.

  • Yes, we do need to continue send aid over their, just think of all the innocent children. some groups of people just don't know how to behave and we still need to continue to help them like anyone else.

  • there is a special place in hell reserved for people who can sit back in the comfort of their own home & judge what people who have lost everything & haven't eaten in 4 days. Most of the aid that has been sent to Haiti is still sitting @ the airport, very little of it has been distributed & these people are starving. As bad as things may be here in America our worst day cannot compare to their best day. Each day we wake up & walk to the frigdge to eat, we turn on the faucet & receive clean water, luxuries many in this country didn't have before the earthquake. Try going without food or clean water for 4 to 5 days & see how you act. As you enjoy your electricity & running water & abudance of food thank whatever god you pray to that he spared your judgemental ass from this living hell.
