China, Cuba apparently on the ground rescuing in Haiti, US flying survey missions and making plans
by Larry Geller
A quick Google this morning would seem to indicate that Cuba already had medical teams working in Haiti, and China mobilized a rescue flight as soon as the seismographs indicated the extent of the problem (at least according to this account, which includes a video: China sends rescue team to quake-hit Haiti, donates one million dollars.
Where is the USA? Military flights to survey the damage and two destroyers on the way.
This morning’s Democracy Now seemed to confirm this. The transcript isn’t posted yet, I’ll check back later.
I’m not sure yet that this is accurate, but the island is so close by, why so slow??
