commentary on Politics and a little bit of everything else

The United States …..not the United Nations is adopting Haiti right now…..

I was listening to White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs answer questions from reporters today…..when the questions got around to Haiti I listen harder…I was looking for one question and knew it was coming sooner…or later…..

When the question came Gibbs was carefull in answering it……”sir….who is charge in Haiti, right now?…..why hasn’t the President [Obama] been able to talk to the Haitian President?”

Gibbs cleared his throat, I think…and went on to say that the Haitian President is in charge of his country…….really?

I don’t think so……

While Rene Preval is the President of the country….he is right now just a survivor of his countries worst natural tadegety…he has no army…no police force to think of..his country has no governemnt…he has just about nothing….The American’s have the assets, which are flowing into the country, and will continue for some time…..

I submit to you that we don’t want to admit this but the highest commanding military person from the United Sates acting under the UN charter and his commader-n-Chief..in consoltation with The Haiti President (if he can find Preval and talk to him) is in charge of the country at this time….(as I write this piece)….

The country is a mess…it is overwhelmed and cannot take care of itself…the only blessing is the damage from the 7.0 scale earthquake was to a certain area……

The country’s future and its number of survivors will depend on the United Sates military which will have to secure the country…serach for survivors and recover the dead…provide shelte communications and food for its populas…take care of the sick and wounded and provide security for the survivors…..

While countries from all over the world will lend a hand, and support..it will be the top U.S. Army General in a few days that will command the operation……President Preval will be located and pulled into the net’ to make decisions sooner hopefully than later…..

But with such a poor country…..American and foreign troops will have another place to be in for along, long time…..

…..as the Dog would say…’that just is’…….
