what would you do if you were homeless and had not drank or ate for 8 days? how far would you go for 12 ounces of water and 4 ounces of tuna?

the military has airdropped supplies for a long time, how do you think soldiers get supplies when they are caught behind enemy lines in wars like Vietnam, world war II and so on

there's no reason for any delays, there are air national guard bases, navy bases, air foce bases in Florida, Puerto Rico and Gitmo

This was an easy fix to air drop supplies to the survivors and they still have not done it. They could have dropped tents, stoves gas, food, water, drinks, ice, coolers, generators, fuel, building materials, tarps, you name it.

That does make sense. Did they purposely sabotage the effort?

Yes, but this hell of a disaster could have been curtailed tremendously if building codes were used and enforced.
Yep! But than again, we are speaking of Haiti. There doesn't seem to be such a thing as codes over there. Not from what I've viewed on Google Earth, or have read. And you can bet, I've read a bit about it.
