Air Waves are a lifeline, Supplies not Troops
You can imagine, getting info in the post earthquake ruins has been difficult.
Having radio to get updates is a lifeline.
They are having to get creative....
It makes sense to give out multiple days supplies of food & water....
But the need is so great.... how will this be sustainable?
In other news there is a dire need for medical supplies & surgical expertise.
12,000 US soldiers arrive armed, with no supply delivery.
Doctors have 1000 in line for surgery & 12 hours of supplies remaining.
No anesthesia or pain meds. Many severe compound fractures.
If the US is going to send troops, they need to send generators for electricity, water, nurses, surgeons & medical supplies.
