Well, not to be a deconstructionist or anything, but it probably requires we interrogate the world "imperialism." Given the contemporary context [massive devastation, complete economic collapse, lack of necessary civic infrastructure--power, water, etc] we're not talking about Pizarro and the Arawaks here. Nor are we talking about the kind of overt theological/cultural assimilation that we normally associate with the term. That said, given the massive destruction, is rebuilding the area even possible? Is there any incident in recent history where an entire population had to abandon a geographic area? I can only think of Chernobyl--and that was what, 50k people?
Yeah. And, of course: the moral thing to do may not necessarily be possible politically. Ultimately, I don't see how America, even in concert with the U.N., can afford to rebuild Port-au-Prince.But, man... watching the world not rebuild that city is going to be really discouraging.And I mean, hell, we didn't really even rebuild New Orleans, so how can we/why should we rebuild Port-au-Prince?

Is that porn!? -- I hadn't clicked it yet. I'm at work.
