Flap flies in Haiti over U.S. flag absence

By Alan Gomez and Oren Dorell - USA TodayPosted : Monday Mar 15, 2010 9:22:17 EDT

The many nations helping Haiti recover from the devastating earthquake that struck there have set up their own military compounds and fly their flags at the entrances.
France's tricolor, Britain's Union Jack and even Croatia's coat of arms flap in the breeze.

But the country whose contributions dwarf the rest of the world's — the United States — has no flag at its main installation near the Port-au-Prince airport.
The lack of the Stars and Stripes does not sit well with some veterans and servicemembers who say the U.S. government should be proud to fly the flag in Haiti, given the amount of money and manpower the U.S. is donating to help the country recover from the Jan. 12 quake.

The Obama administration says flying the flag could give Haiti the wrong idea.

"We are not here as an occupation force, but as an international partner committed to supporting the government of Haiti on the road to recovery," the U.S. government's Haiti Joint Information Center said in response to a query about the flag.

It's of no consequence whatsoever that the national, or is it Transnationalist, textile is flown over other countries soil.

What is important is to stop these imperial expeditions totally.

They're bankrupt ideas put forth by one Progressive president after another, T. Roosevelt, Wilson, and then the biggest Tranzi of them all, F. Roosevelt, did lots of them. They only enrich certain people, at the expense of us all.

We need a lot more of this flag and less of the Union's national textile.

Well I do agree with you on every point Pat. It's just that I know Obongo intends it as a slight - and I still take it as such!

Sometimes these "little things" piss me off more than the more blatant ones. What is happening?

This isn't church giving where
"your giving is done in secret", no, what's wrong with letting the world know what were doing.

Well, I guess we don't want the other kids on the block to feel shamed by our generousity. Whatever, let's rub their noses in it. The actions of the Founding Fathers have created these opportuninties for us to give, and the world needs to hear it.

So, if not flying our flag over our base is a sign that we are not there as an occupation force... what does it mean when we do fly our flag over our base? Seems to me it means we are there as an occupation force... which is pretty much every other country where we happen to have a base, right? What am I missing?
