So, what's your alternative? How would you land more airplanes? Where do they taxi, and "park"? How about shipping? Very few deep water ports.
Out with it. What idea do you have that works better?
It's 60 miles away and is a private beach. Hardly a port for unloading tons of supplies. Did you see a pier? A dock?
Hovercraft may be able to get stuff from ship to beach. What happens at the beach though?
Much of the confusion in Hati is because its own citizens have been denied control of relief efforts. There are far to many alien gun bearers in Hati and there has been for five years.
So the people on the ground should just leave the supplies and let the Haitians claw and fight for them? Maybe the roving bands of machete gangs can be in charge?
Good grief Charlie Brown.
How many aid supplies do you see in this vid? I don't see any. Those choppers weren't full.

Afeared MHz is right about the cargo hook. It has a 9000 lb capacity. Thing is, are the crews trained for external loads on type?

Actually the article supports the delivery, I was wondering why there place they were landing (in the vid)at didn't have pallets of supplies on the lawn.
I know you're not saying that the Hatians can't be left to their own devices because they are incapable, but someone else may read it like that ES. I know that if a disaster were happening here I would want my own government handling things. Maybe if there is anything worse than machete wielding thugs in your hood it might be machine gun wielding soldiers instead.
