No serieus. France, Germany, China and Japan know how to build high-speed trains, including construction of the tracks and signaling.:detective:

Haiti's Tragic History Contributes to Its Calamity > UCG Commentary on This Week's News



Haiti's government-and lack of government

Why is Haiti such a poor country? It's primarily due to Haiti's dismal history of oppressive government that has fostered a corrupt culture. If you read about the turbulent history of Haiti, you'll understand much of why Haiti is Haiti today.


Haiti got an early start. It was the second nation in the western hemisphere to win its independence (in 1804), the United States being first. But Haiti is the poorest nation in the hemisphere.


Haiti lacks natural resources, but so do Japan and Switzerland. Haiti shares the island of Hispaniola with the Dominican Republic, and yet the Dominicans have six times the gross domestic product.


Other nations have at times exploited Haiti; but more than that, other nations have generously come to its rescue time and time again. Before this earthquake, Haiti had 10,000 nongovernmental organizations working there, the highest rate per capita in the world. The Wall Street Journal noted Haiti had 10 times as much foreign aid as investment in 2007.


Haiti has been given many handouts of "fish," but the people need incentives to "catch fish." Yet Haiti's government has not been business-friendly-it has stifled free enterprise, neglected education and has not emphasized the work ethic.

High crime rates certainly intimidate would-be investors. The U.S. State Department's Web site posted this warning on Nov. 23, 2009: "There are no 'safe' areas in Haiti. Kidnapping, death threats, murders, drug-related shootouts, armed robberies, home break-ins and car-jacking are common in Haiti."

@Alan McDougall,
I hate the comment in the end of this article =)

This makes me wonder what could possibly be done to get Haiti out of the mud... I dont meant the earthquake, but the poverty. It seens that just leaving then to thenselves wont work, and helping then do something for thenselves wont work either because they are too corrupt. What to do in a situation like this? I can only think of having a greater nation/ONU conquer then over and govern then until they are in conditions to govern thenselves.

No one has to do anything. As the end of the article states:
Quote:
But there is good news! Haiti will one day have good government-in fact, perfect government. Jesus Christ will return and set up His government, the Kingdom of God, over all the earth! Haiti and all the earth will have peace and prosperity! Read more about this promise in The Gospel of the Kingdom of God.

See? It's all in Christ's hands.
Don't you feel all better now?

No, I feel my levels of compassion for humanity dropping dramatically.

I heard that christ was almost certainly black, but since that was quite unnaceptable to the europeans who later adopted the religion, he was discretly changed into white. Aparently there are a lot of ancient christian churches where he is depicted as being black =)

The angels are busy, the demons are evil, god never does anything personally (after the new testament, that is) and the Flying Spaghetti Monster doesnt really care.

Why would a non-human godman care what happens on this goofy little planet?

Well, that's certainly not very Christ-like of you."

Black or white does not matter to me, to me he is just the son of the living God

The right to not be very Christ-like is one of the many benefits of not being christian =)

Nor it would matter to me, if I was christian, but I suspect it would matter to many =)

@manored,
Is it OK to go to Santa Domingo on a vacation? Seems so close to the disaster. But the offer is so nice...:sarcastic:

I just don't feel relaxed to be close to disaster and not able to do something.
Also I don't like private beaches, gated communities etcetera. But I would like to see what's left of the University (1506?) in Santa Domingo I believe.:whoa-dude:

Well Haiti has always been a disaster, and will probally not cease to be a disaster in your lifetime, so you will have to ignore it if you ever want to be to Santa Domingo =)

Off course, you can wait until it returns to its normal level of desperation, if it bothers you that much.

The voodoo cult is very active in Haiti just as it is in New Orleans, could this be a coincident?

No. After the Revolution the French, coloured people and freed slaves moved en mass to New Orleans. I believe this was just before the Louisiana Land-purchase from Napoleon, financed by the Bank of Amsterdam. Still looking into the details...

It can only be coincidence.
