Bearpie – the U.S. and many developed countries in the west have contributed aid to the 3rd world that I’m sure is very much appreciated by the starving that we helped to save.
However, the Gov’s of some of these countries seem utterly corrupt and you can’t help wondering
how much aid actually makes it through to where it is needed.
Still, when I see news reports it is very hard not to feel sorry for those poor wretches and give the
charities a bit more.

Just on your other point, would Bush have accepted aid from, say, China, India or Russia during Kathrina?
How would the U.S feel about having to take over-sea’s aid?
Would Bush be diminshed in the eyes of the U.S. people by looking for help i.e admitting weakness.
I’m not in any way trying to make light of an awful tradgedy. I’m just interested in your (and others) opinions.
