He's Really Not That Much of a Moron,...
I know,...I know,...read on before slamming me:
Italy's top disaster official blasted the U.S.-led relief effort in Haiti as a "pathetic" failure that is turning a national tragedy into a "vanity show for the television cameras."
Guido Bertolaso, the head of Italy's Civil Protection Agency, told Italian television on Sunday that the U.S. military "tends to confuse military intervention with emergency intervention," and that despite the presence of 13,000 U.S. troops there, "no one is giving orders."
He said there is a danger that aid will be lost by the "inefficient" operation.
Bertolaso threw darts at targets ranging from former President Bill Clinton to the United Nations, which he faulted for throwing aid packages at the island and hoping for the best.
Isn't that the modus operandi of the Untied Nations everywhere? Let's face an ugly truth about Haiti: yes, NO ONE could've prevented the devastation of an earthquake, not even the Obamessiah. But, after decades of aide workers, peacekeepers, UN-approved entrepreneurs, et al, Haiti was still a cesspool of humanity. Yes, Haiti needs to be rebuilt (again), but here's an idea: let the US do it (alone again, naturally) and maybe this time, it'll all turn out right!
