"US has used tsunami to boost aims in stricken area"

Irish Times Article - US has used tsunami to boost aims in stricken area
(needs subscription)

The US can never do anything right - "has subtly turned tragedy into imperial strategy in the politics of relief" and "openly declaring that it wants to promote political and economic stability in the area. Loosely translated, it wants peace to ensure profit."

I would've thought that if you were against the notion of economic stability and profit ( as the IT seems to be) you would be very much for peace...and I would think that peace would be a worthy goal regardless of whether or not it was accompanied profit.
But peace without profit, peace without economic stability isn't very attainable or sustainable.
