Italian official condemns Haiti earthquake relief as 'vanity parade'

The Bucharest Herald ran this story illustrating that many question the primary motives of many organizations and governments who have rushed (with great flourish) in to help Haiti in the aftermath of its most recent horrific disaster.

The picture posted from the Bucharest Herald story shows what appear to be combat ready soldiers in front of an American flag and poses the question: :"Why do these American soldiers need to be combat as they try to assist Haiti?"

Guido Bertolaso, the head of Italy's civil protection service, who is quoted in this story stated that the large US military mission in the country was not entirely helpful.
