Belafonte and Glover

Harry  Belafonte has not been dead and gone, nor has Danny Glover.

These strange moral men, so out of place in the land of entertainer  ego have dared to challenge the “official story” of American exceptionalism and greatness.

On Jan 28 these two American artists joined many others in the continual shocking imperiasl hubris of UNCLE SAM in Haiti.

The justified criticism has been levelled by several credible groups like Doctors without Borders. A team of volunteer surgeons including the incoming president of the New York State Chapter of the American College of Surgeons, whose deployment was delayed for days by the U.S. military, reported that  “untold numbers are dying of untreated, preventable infections.”Six days passed before the US Air Force dropped bottled water to people suffering thirst and dehydration.

We lost three days,” Francoise Saulnier, the head of MSF’s legal department told Reuters Television in an interview. “And these three days have created a massive problem with infection, with gangrene, with amputations that are needed now, while we could have really spared this to those people.”

Acting like a global goon squad the US poired marines into this broken country—to secure it, lock it down instead of immediately feeding and housing the wounded.

The last throes of empire.

It first turned its back on Aristide, then recently on Honduras. Now Haiti must be kept in line.

Hats off to citizens Glover and Belafonte.
