We're just making more hate

Ace links the disturbing stories that I had heard, but had not been able to locate: Indonesia wants foreign troops out, defends restrictions on tsunami aid> You see, they want our aid, and help, but then don't let the door hit your arse on the way out. They're giving us until March to leave, and say- basically- 'please, in the future, send us aid workers that are not military.'

Well, damn- why don't we just keep a ready reserve of "Aid Workers" floating around in aircraft carriers, just poised to help where ever the need arises? Certainly that is our purpose in life? You know, call me stupid, but isn't that one of the purposes of the UN? You know, that organization (that we fund) which is still having meetings about the Tsunami crises? They should be ready for action any day now ...
