Okay, while there's no such thing as a C-5 Starlifter (C-5 Galaxy and C-141 Starlifter), there are C-17s doing exactly what you are talking about, dropping supplies into a secure drop zone, so as not to cause mass looting and violence in a scramble for supplies. Add this to the SH-60 helicopters and pretty much anything with rotor blades that's currently flying around the country.
Yes, this earthquake happened without any warning, and America's efforts in pushing tons of supplies thousands of miles with little notice is quite impressive. Thank you, Mr. Armchair General, for your thoughtless analysis.
