If too much or too little rain alone could cause a hunger crisis, then
Californians would all be dead from starvation
The Pain Rush in Haiti
"Today's mainstream media reports that chronic hunger in Haiti is rising
mostly because of geography - the weather!
According to the Associated Press, much of the hunger crisis "stems from too
little rain, and then too much," corrupt Haiti politicians and because half of
Haiti's food is imported.
But if Haiti is corrupt, then it's a 1cent corruption to the 99cent that stays
in the hands of the Westerners per aid dollars to Haiti. If Haiti imports half
its food, it's because of US destruction of Haiti agriculture - the forcible
US disruption of a country that had an overproduction of food in the 1950s.
Some thirty-five years ago, the US started dumping Miami rice, corn, poultry,
year-round into Haiti while forcing powerless Haiti governments to lift up
Simultaneously, each time these “look-at-the-poor-starving-Haiti-babies”
articles are written, the USAID beltway bandits, the UN and their NGOs will
rush in to dump food aid instead of using aid monies to buy food from the
local Haiti farmers in areas where there’s no crisis. But that is not a money-
making proposition for the NGOs.
Moreover, the imperialist imposes World Bank conditions upon Haiti government
prohibiting it from subsidizing its own local farmers and US Congress preside
over laws prohibiting aid to come in the form of cash to buy from local Haiti
farmers and give it as food aid to the folks affected by drought or storms.
These articles will not mention, for instance, that US agricultural laws, like
the 1980s Bumpers Amendment, restricts assistance for agricultural development
if it may improve the recipient country’s ability to compete with U.S.
Also, if too much or too little rain alone could cause a hunger crisis, then
Californians living in the Salinas Valley in Monterey California would all be
dead from starvation since it doesn't rain, in one of the most fertile crop
producing areas in the United States.
There's mostly not one drop of rain there between April to November of each
year. Yet, the Salinas Valley in California, USA is one of the most fertile
areas in the world, the "salad bowl" of America.
What Californians have in the Salinas Valley that you won't find in Haiti is
water infrastructure, water management.
How long does it take for the fake charity workers to help build the
infrastructure that's necessary for water management in Haiti? It's been more
than 50-years of incessant destructive “aid” to Haiti. For fifty years, aid
workers and the "humanitarians" have claimed billion in the name of "building
Haiti back better," building infrastructure, building clean water/sanitation
and they've collected and collected monies for these otherwise laudable
purposes. But somehow they've never managed to put down permanent
infrastructure in Haiti. That would mean they're out of a job, no?"....
