The Rescue and Reconstruction

Editorial in center-right O Estado de S. Paulo (1-27)
states:"...The problem [in Haiti] is not only money....but knowing
what to do, who will do it and under which rules....One of the
questions being asked at the moment is whether it makes sense to
maintain the original mandate of the mission created in 2004 by the
U.N. Security Council to fight political and criminal violence and
assure free presidential elections in 2006. Even after the
catastrophe, Brazil's tendency is to involve MINUSTAH in social
service and infrastructural programs......[It is] urgent...that
Brazil and U.S. end the sniping....Brazil and the U.S. have
competing ambitions: one aims for a new global role, the other has
a President who needs to show the world he deserves the Nobel
Prize."
