    Its great that this ship which has the access to help and save so many people and so many lives has left and is on its way to Haiti but in my opinion it should have been shipped out the day after the earthquake that rocked the great nation of Haiti and brought so much devastation and tradgedy to this country. If it would have left on Wednesday it would be getting there today or tomorrow, this Thursday is to long to wait. Im encouraging everyone and anybody to Donate to Help Save Lives In Haiti because the Haitians are depending on us there lives are in all of our hands!

    Instead of sending 30 US physician and "medics" the USA should have contacted to the Cuban government to work together in this tragedy
    The Cubans are 100 miles from Haiti and have thousands of physician ready to go to serve in remote areas where the spoiled US medics will not go.

    By the way – why aren't you reporting that Cuba set up the first hospital in Hiati, that they were the first to respond t o the Earthquake in 24 hours? Why aren't you showing the French hospitals on the lawn of the French Embassy set up in the last 24 hours?

    It has been five day s since the Haiti earthquake devastation, yet the US has not put a field hospital in place yet. The Israeli goverment came half way around the world set up hospital and are saving lives. We the US are two hours away and still playing logist games. Where is the Help? Or Is Brownie still in charge?
