Facts on the ground

It would seem the US and Australia (together with the local government of course) are doing the hard yards on the ground.

this is interesting

“Only really the UN can do that job,” she told BBC Radio Four’s PM programme. “It is the only body that has the moral authority. But it can only do it well if it is backed up by the authority of the great powers.”

Er.. is she saying that you need previous moral authority to provide assistance after a disaster? Or that the US is not allowed to help because it is not moral enough?
Claire short is an idiot.

meanwhile the UN is covering for the immoral USA by taking credit for USAID and australian aid activities.

"I discussed today with Washington whether we can draw on some assets on their side, after consultations with the Indonesian Government, to set up what we call an “air-freight handling centre” in Aceh."

"A UN “air-freight handling centre” in Aceh? Bull! It's the Aussies and the Yanks who are running the air ops into Aceh."
