This is just so Wrong. The whole country is poverty stricken, there is no there there. No emergency services for any kind of emergency, there is no EPA, there is no watchdog 24/7. They will turn this country into a toxic waste dump for pieces of 8 and the population most likely doesn’t have a clue to the dangers involved. This is the very kind of thing why people hate america. Can you imagine what if all that money was spent on restoration and renewables? If everyone there was given a helping hand?
