Cholera==No Surprise

Haiti is now facing a cholera outbreak, this should come as no surprise when over 1 million people are living in makeshift shelters, little more than tarps, tape and sticks. With poor sanitation and access to clean water limited the factors that can lead to an illness like cholera are set.

Of course our US politicians are too busy campaigning to release the $1.15 billion promised to Haiti. Surely some of that $$ could build some housing or water purification facilities. Why let people die? Maybe because Haiti’s oil reserves are reported to be greater than Venezuela’s? Maybe because Haiti has mineral wealth including, gold, uranium and iridium? Maybe because the takeover of Haiti’s resources would be so much easier without those fiery Haitians in the way. Worse things have happened.
