So what has the US military been sent for? To keep Haitian refugees from sailing to Puerto Rico, of course.
Haiti earthquake: US ships blockade coast to thwart exodus to America
A US aircraft carrier is spearheading a blockade of Haiti's waters as America prepares for a mass sea exodus of Haitians with thousands fleeing the devastated capital of Port-au-Prince.

US officials have drawn up emergency plans to cope with a mass migration crisis and have cleared spaces in detention or reception centres, including the Navy base at Cuba's Guantanamo Bay.
Also, the Cuban doctors have been featured on CNN in Spanish, but not in English it seems. CNN visited a hospital staffed by the Cubans. "300 MDs before the quake are now 450 from Cuba and more than 400 MDs Haitian trained in Cuba" (roughly translated). The Cubans wear cute sweat shirts that say "Cuba" looking like a US baseball team emblem. Yet, I have not found the same story on English CNN or any other US English media. Has anybody else?
