    I bet they won't keep any of the money and instead will go and steal the TVs, Games Consoles, whatever they want instead of trying to find a store to buy the stuff. They'd be pretty stupid to spend ages trying to find a store to buy stuff when they can steal it and probably not get put in prison.
    Are you...an actual person? Or some kind of lab experiment gone horribly wrong

    IMHO, while the cash is useful for long-term recovery efforts, it's the boots on the ground that make the most difference.

    To this end, I think that the US has been quite generous in diverting a carrier and an assault ship, both laden with helicopters and the assault ship with marines, to Haiti. That's going to help make a difference in the short-term and save lives.

    What? Do you not understand by intellectual abilities that enable me to see beyond what I'm told and realise Haitians have no use for money? Idiot.

    Anyway, I donated £10 to it the other day, which was the most I've donated to any cause.

    Don't know why I bothered... all I got back was this postcard, "Wishing you were here".

    It's unlikely they're worrying about missing the latest episode of Lost or not being able to play Call of Duty, I was thinking the money might be spent on finding people places to sleep, rebuilding the country and keeping people alive. Just a thought

    Haiti can help itself, just like Somalia and other ****** countries.

    I imagine Obama's popularity is going to go down even further now that he's spending so much money on Haiti when there are parts of America that are in horrible condition.

    Monetairly the USA, but then again they are neighbour and one of the richest countries in the world.

    Senegal is offering to take in Haitian refugees (since many are of African slave descent) and give them fertile land and citizenship. If they keep to that promise, its a pretty good offer too considering Haiti is largely destroyed.
