I'm not so sure how "current" this post may actually be. The article posted below was published in late January of this year, but the events therein described are from the recent earthquake in Haiti, and from there, to early 19th century France. However, I suppose questions of "currentness" may be of the most insulting kind, as the situation for those souls now living in Haiti are of no other nature than current. Anyhow, I was wondering what all of you thought about this interesting article published in First Things, claiming that France has a disproportionately higher fault for the situation Haiti now -- and ever since the early 19th century -- finds itself in.

Don't blame Haitians, Kobe in Japan got exactly the same size earthquake and 5000 people died. The difference is Haiti isn't a country known for earthquakes (last big one was in the 60s) unlike Japan. God forbid had this happened in a densly populated area in the US or anywhere else where there are no earthquakes the same death toll might have occured.
