    Ireland did and rightly so its not just about money though ,its also showing empathy and compassion for people who have lost so much,especially their loved ones.

    We wouldn't know because the US government routinely turns down such offers for help. Like how many people remember that Cuba offered help in search and rescue, etc. after Hurricane Katrina. Ok so how much help could Cuban actually send, right? But I bet if you'd been sitting on your roof for two days you wouldn't have turned down a Cuban boat ride to dry ground. So any help should be welcome. Instead usually our government is more concerned about it's reputation. Can't have the big bad rich boy on the block taking any assistance from the poor kids.

    It's a satellite television network ad I think?

    aahh... A Cuban satellite boat commercial...

    I get it now.

    OH, and I saw the Cuban boat lift - trust me, that's no rescue boat.

    No.
    Sorry the conversation kinda took a turn there. The commercial had nothing to do with the topic.

    Many nations offer material aid to hurricane victims; Bush refuses to accept
    Jump to: navigation, search

    Saturday, September 3, 2005

    Over twenty five nations have offered aid in the wake of Hurricane Katrina. In particular, France has offered the use of its resources in the Caribbean sea, including 2 navy ships, 1 navy hospital, 8 planes, 600 tents, 1000 beds, and rescuers. President George W. Bush has refused such material aid to the hurricane's victims, although cash donations will be accepted. He explained his reasons to ABC News:

    I'm not expecting much from foreign nations because we hadn't asked for it. I do expect a lot of sympathy and perhaps some will send cash dollars. But this country's going to rise up and take care of it. You know, we would love help, but we're going to take care of our own business as well, and there's no doubt in my mind we'll succeed. And there's no doubt in my mind, as I sit here talking to you, that New Orleans is going to rise up again as a great city.

    A few of these nations, such as Venezuela and Cuba, are disliked by the administration, but the majority are considered allies of the United States. Venezuela's Citgo Petroleum Corp. pledged a $1 million donation for hurricane aid. Cuba refused U.S. aid following Hurricane Dennis. In order to reduce the side effects of hurricane Katrina, Japan, Venezuela, and most EU countries offer to provide oil reserves to the U.S.

    The Red Cross receives donations from around the world, and I suspect that there will have been many offers. The question is, would the US have been too proud to accept foreign aid?

    Well I understood that the diplomatic norm is for countries to ask for assistance, but I am aware of at least one offer of help - which was understandably refused.

    A Pakistani radical - which is why it was refused I suspect...

    NEW YORK (Reuters) - Manhattan doctor Lucy Doyle has done stints with the global medical relief organization Doctors Without Borders in the Democratic Republic of Congo and Kenya. But her latest assignment is a real eye-opener: New York City.

    British Red Cross has launched a Hurricane Sandy Appeal to raise funds for relief efforts

    The nation of Iran, with which the United States has no formal diplomatic relations, has offered to send an emergency aid team to New York City.

    The city of Toronto has offered New York City aid. And the Japanese-based Toyota corporation will donate $1 million to the American Red Cross to aid in relief efforts

    France has offered aid to help the US East Coast recover from the ravages of superstorm Sandy, Foreign Minister Laurent Fabius said Tuesday, expressing "total solidarity with the American people."
