WHAT RELIEF LOOKS LIKE. Brian Williams of NBC's Nightly News correctly recognized it.


According to Insta Pundit, the French aren't as perceptive as the legacy media.
France accused the US of “occupying” Haiti on Monday as thousands of American troops flooded into the country to take charge of aid efforts and security. Yeah, that’s what it is. Jeez. Perhaps the French can send their own aircraft carriers, floating seaports, and massive logistical teams, then. Oh, wait . . . .
He reminds readers of this.

" See, this is why George Bush is so dumb, theres a disaster in the world and he sends an Aircraft Carrier..."

After which he and many of my Euro collegues laughed out loud.

and then they looked at me. I wasn't laughing, and neither was my Hindi friend sitting next to me, who has lost family in the disaster.

I'm afraid I was "unprofessional", I let it loose -

"Hmmm, let's see, what would be the ideal ship to send to a disaster, now what kind of ship would we want?

Something with its own inexhuastible power supply?

Something that can produce 900,000 gallons of fresh water a day from sea water?

Something with its own airfield? So that after producing the fresh water, it could help distribute it?

Something with 4 hospitals and lots of open space for emergency supplies?

Something with a global communications facility to make the coordination of disaster relief in the region easier?"

Go. Read. Understand.
