I know it’s probably naive and presumptuous of me to assume that America’s leaders haven’t thought of this already and dismissed it for good reason. But why haven’t we done something like the Berlin Airlift for Puerto Rico?
We kept Berlin going for 11 months after the Soviet Union blockaded the city at the start of the Cold War. Planes were landing every 38 seconds 24/7! We sent EVERYTHING that city needed to keep going, including gasoline and coal.
It has been weeks now since the hurricane. Why do we continue to see news reports of such heartbreaking human misery coming out of Puerto Rico?
