    If you want to win a debate or change a mind, it is generally a good idea not to start off with absurd straw men.

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

    Im pretty sure if something similar happened in America you wouldnt of referred to it as a "sob story".I cant see how you expect people to read your posts and not conclude you think nationality matters.

    france is sending 400 odd people and two boat loads of aid.

    almost the entire world is responding, even though america and canada are the largest contributors, lots of other countries are doing their bits too

    How terribly impressive for a country with 779,450 troops and a GDP of $2.867 trillion.
