The Red Cross is planning to bring 50,000 Haitians to Florida and 2,000 have already arrived. With the ignorant accusations of France and Chavez do you think maybe we should dump them in Paris and Venesuala instead? I don't see either country offering to take them in, yet they feel justified of condemning the US.Answer Question
good grief. We cant win for losing. As much aid an relief as we are sending THER AND that I have proven that Americans contribute MORE to charities than ANY other country...there are still SO many right here on CM that continue to accuse American of being awful, greedy, and selfish. This does not surprise me....but its awful sad.

Many of these Haitians have family already in Florida. I don't think they would like "being dumped" anywhere else.

Let them go do all the stuff we are doing then. Takeback all of our aid ($), our food, our medical staff, our equipment, and our security and let them have at it. I was watching today while the rescue workers were trying to find a way in a collapsed building, looters with machetes were running passed with a stainless steel bowl. They didn't have food; they didn't have water; they didn't have anything that would imply desperation. They had a bowl. I would have stopped digging and told those men that if they are strong enough to run around stealing from the collapsed homes they are strong enough to help dig out of this mess. But no, the Haitians, or at least a large majority of them are being thugs instead of helping and the rest are too stressed to help. Tell France and Chavez is kiss our red, white and blue arse.
