    Yes it would.....well that bit about showing up and helping out with rescue operations and sending a SCG to give assistance. Doing so and better and than most others.

    Kind of like, puts that New Light Perspective on all those that watch and want to say anything about perception.

    As my thought is......they sure wouldn't like to find out what it is like in not having such assistance show up to help them out now, would they?

    Interesting though that the American military are helping with the relief project, the UK is sending massive amounts of aid as are other nations and yet China is right there and offers nothing.

    It goes to illustrate that the world would be a much sadder place, were it not for The United States being the leading world power.

    This event is another example of why it's important for us to maintain a strong military.

    Sorry bro, we can't even fix the Obamacare website with 20 mil. But we can help some people that really need it. I think it's a great investment personally. And I'm hugely against the way we are usually used.

    Lol. Yeah, they play a part. Passing out motrin and telling people to drink water. Which is pretty much what every Corpsmen tells a Marine to do for everything from a cold to a femoral bleed lol.

    How much do you think this costs?

    Obama also sent 20 million dollars in aide for them.

    Do you think we should be throwing out 20 million dollars when we are in the Middle of a Stop Gap measure, have no agreements on any budget, and also that fact that we need the money ourselves and also are in a Sequester?

    20 million is a drop in the bucket compared to the billions in pork that congressmen take home to their districts.
