Also I was watching the news about the relief effort. The U.N. have areas set up to distribute food in a, more or less, orderly manner, then they showed an American helicopter swoop over a large crowded refuge camp and just start tossing out boxes of MREs into the crowd of hungry people. Needless to say pandemonium ensued, way to start a riot guys.
The problem is, though, they are trying to set up aid stations, but it is nearly impossible to get the aid to said stations because all of the roads are blocked.
The helicopter way of just dropping stuff off is one of the few ways they've been able to get needed supplies to certain parts of the city, so it is better than nothing.
