Food for women only

AP reports:
PORT-AU-PRINCE, Haiti – Relief workers began handing out women-only food coupons, launching a new phase ...

In other developments:

• Ten Americans were detained by Haitian police on Saturday as they tried to bus 33 children across the border into the Dominican Republic, allegedly without proper documents. The Baptist church members from Idaho called it a "Haitian Orphan Rescue Mission" to save abandoned children in the disaster zone.
Only women get food? Haiti wants the church members to be criminally prosecuted in the USA. There are some very strange priorities in Haiti.

This is Pres. Obama's Katrina. It would be more efficient to airdrop the food, as has been done in the past.

Well there have been huge problems with people taking children from Haiti to be sex slaves, so yes they want everyone caught smuggling children out of Haiti to be prosecuted. If you were smuggling children out to be sex slaves would you fess up after being caught?

As for food vouchers, ever heard of women and children first? Men only food vouchers would be ridiculous, women only, not as much.

Enough money has been donated to feed everyone there ten times over. Yes, I've heard of "women and children first", and it only applies when not everyone can be saved. They have enough food for everyone. I think that they should be trying to save everyone, and worrying about some crazy paranoia about sex slaves.

you think women aren't letting their sons/husbands/brothers have food? The problem was that the men were selling their food and eating there wives food anyways, often with the children going hungry. While enough money has gone to Haiti to feed everyone the food still has a price, and it still takes work to get it there and distribute it.
