American Troops Begin Withdrawel From Haiti

We have been very fortunate that American troop presence in Haiti has thus far been remarkably trouble free. With UN troops taking over, American troops can pull out and leave Haiti to the UN and the people of Haiti to rebuild after that terrible earthquake destroyed what little that there was to wreck in that poverty stricken nation.

Soldiers are not best suited to aid work. Putting American troops in a position where they might have to shoot and kill civilians in riot situations was very risky. The downside risks in this operation were tremendous. It is good that we have dodged this bullet.

  1. Hugo Chavez will be happy, I guess.

    Or maybe he'll be bummed because he can no longer bitch and moan about how our military is 'occupying' Haiti.

It is an unfortunate fact of life that there are people out there in the wilds of the Internet that think it cute to post racist and Nazi garbage on other peoples websites. Some of these thugs are even enabled by people who should know better. In my opinion, both the thugs and their enablers are worse than spammers.

I have recently made enemies with a particular group of these people who have done just that on another website. I don't intend to make it easy for them to do that to me.

In light of that, comment moderation will be used here on this humble and very obscure little blog.

I will check in several times each day to approve appropriate comments.

For the most part, I will allow just about any type of comment except for spam and Kilgorian excrement.
