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.
This idiocy needs to stop. First Venezuela’s Chavez, now the French, are using the Haiti disaster for political grandstanding while WE are the ones spending hard cash on the relief effort.
How much money do you think our country has spent already sending soldiers and marines down there, plus all of those ships, aircraft and the USAF special operations personnel that were in-country immediately? Is anyone else in the world spending that kind of money?
Do we get thanks for that? No, we don’t. Instead we get assholes like Hugo Chavez immediately spewing anti-American venom to anyone that bothers to listen. The French, of course, can’t miss this opportunity to stick it in our backs.
