There are lots of good reports out there, right now, on the devastation in Haiti.
I don't mean the pressers done by visiting Foreign Ministry types or the could-have-should-have international community types. Shine those. I mean get the news from the people who are doing the rescuing.
Here's the link for USSOUTHCOM in Operation Unified Response. They are doing *all* the heavy lifting, and don't let anyone deny it.
Get the reports from one of the civilian or volunteer rescue teams like Team Rubicon. These folks are amazing.
Oh yeah... our local team is in action as well, but in fairness so are a lot of other countries.
Here's one more:
CompHyp friend and man-in-the-field reporter Adam Housley from FOXNews (LA base) has been doing the job down in Haiti since his dispatch there the day of the earthquake. Here's his latest posting on FOX Liveshots, but he really can't get much out as internet access is very limited down there. If you are of the Twitterati, you can read his Tweets here and they are often linked to photo or data posted ...of course, you'll get *all* his Twittering there, not just Haiti news... but best of all, look for his reports on the air with the rest of the team(s) from FOXNews.
Now then, when all the dust has settled and some modest calm can be found for the people of Haiti, if someone wants to talk about what it would take to establish a *country of Haiti* where none, and I do mean functionally none, exists right now, I'm all for the job. 'Till that discussion comes, keep your prayers and hopes focused on the rescue/recovery operation. Politics and self-important claims of people's "pride" be damned.
