They are setting up a field hospital on the devastated island. One Israeli (Sharona Elsaieh) is still missing following the quake and is feared to be among the dead.
    Hell. I got no beef with the Israelis. They've always been tops in my book. Unlike some countries, who constantly piss and moan about how crappy the US is...

Next you will be defending Rev. White just because I am critical of him and a non American.. pathetic arrogant attitude you have.



    Donate through what? Government.. no.. private.. maybe, highly debatable since much of private US donations go to local US things and not abroad. As I said, start a thread and we can debate it.



    And what do you not understand about initial donation? And you dont understand how the EU aid works. The EU as an organisation donates relatively little. The donations are still national given often through EU coordination to the organisations in need. Plus one has to be careful on what "aid" means.. there are different forms and the statistics does no always account for this.



    Total money yes, per captia.. hell no.. you are the WORST donor out there per capita and that is the only way to compare nations. As I said, start a thread instead of derailing this thread since it is clearly not going your way.



    Forget it.. debating with you and your cohorts is like talking to a wall.. in fact I would get more out of a wall these days since you are so blinded by partisanship right wing nationalism.

    I have said my peace, if you want to discuss aid then start a thread.
    Whatever Petey. Then don't debate me. Like I said, I could care less about your opinion. It means absolutely nothing to me. I hope the rest of America feels the same way.

    Newsflash you are. You claim to be a libertarian.. they are right wing.

    And yes right wingers are Americans too, but they are not all Americans and far from it.

    I'm an agnostic pro-choicer who favors drug and prostitution legalization and gay marriage. What do you think?
    And you call yourself a Libertarian?

    Actually, you're right. There's nothing funny about how little aid the EU sent. It's just sad.
    And you have no clue on how the EU aid system works.

    There's these things, they're called boats and planes. I think France has some...
    yea and? How you think the 400 French you claim got there? And what is this crazy focus on the French always.. gezz. Russia is larger than France and they sent less.. how about China? Why not go after them?

    There was a devastating earthquake that destroyed Haiti's capital city and killed multiple thousands of people. They are largely without shelter, food, medicine, and clean water.

    Is that clear enough for you?
    And where do you send the money? Who should get priority.. red cross, UN? What is needed? Money, men or materials? Where is it needed? The money donated by the UN is in the system.. it is gone poof.. given to the UN.

    Is that clear enough for you?

    Don't forget to fill it up with air.
    Eh? what on earth are you babbling about? You do know what it is right?

    Got a link?
    http://ocha.unog.ch/fts/reports/dail...1001161249.pdf

    Look for Denmark.

    And as you can see there is still 45million dollars of the US 100 million that has not been allocated.

    I've been to a disaster site, Petey. Spent nearly a week in the scorching Philippine sun digging for dead bodies and distributing supplies to survivors. My humanitarian credentials are well established, so there's no need for you to pretend I'm a heartless SOB.
    then stop acting like one by defending the few undefendable heartless morons on the right.

    I would gladly debate you if you stuck to the topic and facts, but you dont. You use half truths and falsehoods to attack those in the world that you genetically hate.. aka France and the EU. Then you attack me for pointing out the obvious about the hypocrisy and heartlessness of parts of right wing America. That can only mean you agree fully with what Rush and Pat Roberston said on this.. and that sir is pathetic attitude.

    You have also used the classic trick of claiming that if someone attacks one American then one is attacking all Americans. It is usually used by right wingers to derail a thread.. it was used under Bush and it is being used today when the left or others attack certain personalities on the right.. Palin, Rush and so on. And it only helps that the person being critical is not American.. i am just waiting for American to come in and start saying I have no right to discuss things involving America.. oh wait you have already done that.. another classic move when right on these boards are loosing a debate.

    It is funny how even when you agree with me that the US is to be commended in its response then you cant stop being the arrogant nationalist chest thumping right winger you are by taking a swipe at others and claiming your own superiority over others.. pathetic attitude.

    Have a good day.

    Firstly hats off to all involved (even the IDF )but I but i don't think its fair to say America bore a disproportionate burden in Bosnia and Kosovo. Look at who was actually putting troops on the ground (and thus in harms way). The N.A.T.O bombing campaign helped as far as Bosnia was concerned but it came at very little cost. The same goes for Darfur etc. Its normally Scandinavia Ireland, and the Low Countries that send a disproportionate amount of troops.

    It might be related to it - but that's not the sole reason. People should always be willing to help people when they need help. I would want help if I was in a similar situation - sometimes your country just can't do everything for you.

    I think too many people IN the US are spoiled by our efficiency and simply don't know what it's like to really be **** up a creek.
