    No, what's obvious is that you can't read any better than you write. Try again.

    Well, where's the rest of the world? Where are all the democratic-socialist European paradises? I thought they had it all figured out. They should have tons of extra money and supplies and man-power. France sent like, what? Sixty specialists. That's pathetic.

    I thought it was about doing the right thing? Now it's about proximity?

    You want to send someone? Send the Red Cross or the Peace Corps.
    Actually, having been involved in a couple of these myself, I can tell you that we were all quite proud to help out. It was quite rewarding, and nowhere near being an insult. The military is the only agency in the world that can bring as many people and as much equipment necessary to handle almost any disaster.

    Want to watch a lot of people die a slow and miserable death? Send the Red Cross or the Peace Corps.

    You just changed your entire argument.

    The United States has to do the right thing, but France gets to be practical.

    Which one is it? Are we supposed to be moral or practical?
