Paging US Military Helicopters... Please Drop FOOD, MEDICINE, and DIESEL POWER GENERATORS To These Coordinates...

They are hospitals in the Tohoku region (Yomiuri Shinbun, 3/18/2011). They desperately need food, water, fuel/power generators, medicine, infant formulas, diapers, beds and blankets for their patients, but very little is coming their way. (And it is not because of "hoarding", Mr. Cabinet Secretary.)

They have cancer patients who need chemotherapy.

Please ignore the protocols dealing with a sovereign government, and just do it. The government that does not even try to secure the lives of its citizens has lost its legitimacy. Not much different from the Mubarak regime or the Gaddafi regime. Egyptians got rid of the Mubaraks (good for Egyptians), and Brits and French are going in to take out Gaddafi (good for Brits and French).

To the hospital doctors, nurses, and workers: How about some good old fashioned way of heating? There are wood debris all around you in abundance. How about some outdoor bon fires? Take your patients out and warm them around the fire.
