The Ire of Ike (and me)

Article has been reedited and rewritten again, but there isn't any censorship of the press here in AmeriKa.

I'm so sick of this kind of scitte, America. Fuck the MSM posts from now on. Don't think I'll be buying tomorrow, because I'm tired of reading scitte with my morning coffee.

"Deadly Ike slams Cuba; Hurricane adds 58 to Haiti toll" by Will Weissert, Associated Press | September 8, 2008

CAMAGUEY, Cuba - Hurricane Ike roared onto Cuba yesterday after destroying houses and crops on low-lying islands and worsening floods in Haiti that have already killed more than 300 people.

At least 58 people died as Ike's winds and rain swept Haiti yesterday - and officials found three more bodies from a previous storm - raising the nation's death toll from four tropical storms in less than a month to 319. A Dominican man was crushed by a falling tree.

Ike first slammed into the Turks and Caicos and the southernmost Bahamas islands as a Category 4 hurricane. Thousands rode out the storm in shelters and there was no immediate word of deaths on the low-lying islands.

Great Inagua has about 1,000 people and about 50,000 West Indian flamingos - the world's largest breeding colony. Both populations sought safety from the winds and driving rain, with the pink flamingos gathering in mangrove thickets. Biologists worried that their unique habitat could be destroyed.

"There's a possibility that the habitat can't really be replaced, and that they can't find an equivalent spot," said Greg Butcher, bird conservation director for the National Audubon Society. "You might have a significant drop in the number of flamingos."

Look at this: Flamingos are more important to the stink Zionist elite than black people!!!

In South Caicos, a fishing-dependent island of 1,500 people, the airport was under water, power will be out for weeks, and at least 20 boats were swept away despite being towed ashore for safety, Minister of Natural Resources Piper Hanchell said.

In flooded Haiti, Ike made an already grim situation abysmal. The coastal town of Cabaret was particularly hard hit - 21 victims were stacked in a mud-caked pile in a funeral home there, including two pregnant women, one with a dead girl still in her arms. More than a dozen children were in the pile.

Strong gusts and steady rains fell at the US naval base at Guantanamo Bay in southeast Cuba, where all ferries were secured and beaches were off-limits. The military said cells containing terrorism detainees - about 255 men suspected of links to the Taliban and Al Qaeda - are hurricane-proof. But the base was spared the strongest winds.


Here are the cuts:

"Many more Haitian lives were threatened as Ike's downpours topped flooding from Hanna, Gustav and Fay.

Officials said they would have to open an overflowing dam, inundating more homes and possibly causing lasting damage to key farming areas. The Mirebalais bridge collapsed in the floods, cutting off the last land route into Gonaives, where half the homes were already under water when Ike hit. The latest rains made it even more difficult for aid groups to reach desperate residents.

Heavy rains also pelted the Dominican Republic, Haiti's neighbor on the island of Hispaniola, where about 4,000 people were evacuated from northern coastal towns. One man was crushed by a falling tree."

I guess Haitian don't really matter that much after all, huh? Fucking media!
