For those of you unfamiliar with the political environment down in Haiti, brace yourself for horror on top of tragedy.  Police and the U.N.’s stabilization forces (MINUSTAH) were just starting to gain ground against the gangs of Port-au-Prince when the quake flattened the city.  Unknown numbers of the peacekeeping force are missing and we have to assume that a certain number of undesirable critters escaped their cells when the walls came down.  With critical supplies in high demand and chaos in what’s left of the streets, time is running out to regain control before the whole country slides into the abyss.  Let’s hope the forces headed to help those in need are equipped to fight those that might exploit a disaster.  Think Somalia on a much smaller scale.
