You can count on the US government and its
captive news media for two things in an emergency:
1. To turn disasters into 24/7 horror entertainment
(with the occasional moral lesson thrown in)
2. To glorify the power and might of the US
and its fabulous beneficence.
Then there are the countries that quietly get the
job done - and this truth squeaked through
the news filter one time.
While the US "Security State" makes cautious steps towards helping in Haiti, a team of doctors led by Cuba is providing emergency care to 600 to 700 Haitians a day including dozens of surgeries.
You can't send any money to Cuba to support this effort though. If you did, you could be charged with supporting the "Axis of Evil."
Send it to the US Red Cross or the Bush/Clinton Fund instead so they can skim their share off the top and deliver next-to-nothng with what's left over.
The Red Cross was caught red handed looting donations sent for 9/11 and "Katrina," yet people still send them money. The power of the "free press" I guess. (Google for the details. It's not hard to find the details.)
