    The first thing our government does when disaster hits is calling for aid from all over the world. I think they like more and more disasters

    why US is giving us peanuts ? are they getting poor now ? seems like most western countries talk big with empty pockets

    The reason could be that they know how corrupt our country is and the aide will not reach to the needy people.

    The US has no money as evidenced by their multi-trillion dollar budget deficits. The US is really a tiger - only on paper
