Have you noticed how bad it is Haiti? Maybe you have seen the news images of corpses in the street. Sometimes piled high, or even being loaded into a tractor or bed of a 18 wheel truck. Many pictures within days of the earthquake contained scenes of crushed limbs peering through the rubble, or burning bodies on the street of Port Au Prince. Nevermind it was the French, U.S. , Central Banks and others that were keeping Haiti from being developed and prepared for an event like this.
Can you believe we have been at war for almost 9 years and still not seen the kinds of pictures from Iraq or Afghanistan that we have seen from Haiti. Where has the media been? What soldier was killed today, how, where, why? What did the soldier do for a living before being deployed? Will the soldiers remains be sent to the States, is there multiple pieces of the body, or is there even anything left of what used to be a son or daughter? Do the parents care?
What of the Afghan and Iraqi people, and Pakistan, Palestine? What do we know of the horrors in those lands committed by many including our own brothers and sisters? If you look through the internet you can find some bloody war pictures, but you will not find that material on the hourly CNN reports.
