Hard to believe

France is accusing the U.S. of occupying Haiti. There are so many things wrong with this statement that I don't know where to begin. Perhaps France, the country which was Haiti's original occupier, would like to send aircraft carriers, military transports and troops, civilian aid workers, tons of medical supplies, foodstuffs and millions of dollars of aid to Haiti so we can stand down from our "occupier" role.

Countries that have the ability to help should work together and no one should be bickering at a time like this. What is important is coming to the aid of the poor devastated people of Haiti. If any country should want to level that accusation (which they should not) it should certainly not be France. Finally, I thought electing Obama and his brilliant international diplomatic ability was supposed to end this kind of criticism. Mais non.

UPDATE: From the U.S. Army's official site, a recent report on the "occupation." Read the whole thing.
