Stuff like this happens near the US and we are SOL. I cant even begin to imagine how much devastation this is going to bring.
You think the US was the only country to contribute to Haiti? Really?
Haiti = Poor third world country. People are helpless. Their home was all they had. No insurance companies/bank accounts/benefits for those injured beyond working ability etc etc. Hundreds of thousands dead/injured, millions homeless.
USA = World super power, inhabitants under no direct, life endagering threat. No casualties, all different types of help available right on their doorstep. More than capable of dealing with the situation without worldwide aid.
Now lets play spot the difference shall we?
The aid in Haiti was to provide BASICS to enable people to survive like food and water and a place to sleep and you're complaining that they got more attention than an oil spill?
I literally can't believe the mentality of some people.
