In an interview with Chris Wallace of Fox News Sunday today, the UN’s Jan Egeland, “Mr. Stingy”, after citing the logistics bottleneck in getting aid to the tsunami victims, said the US military was “worth it’s weight in gold.” And then he went on to praise the Navy for providing desalinization so promptly.

Hell Yeah! No nation, or combination of nations, in the world can match the airlift capibility, particularly the helicopters to go the “last mile”, of the United States. And, of course, our naval capability is unique in the world today. But all that doesn’t come cheap. A C-141 goes through fuel like it has holes in the tanks. And most governments couldn’t even afford to operate a Carrier Battle Group.
