Now, look at this list, from the CNN news ticker at 8:22 this morning. Take a good look. Most of the time, we end up having to help out these countries after their disasters. Or we ridicule them because of the Nation's foreign policy, but they help us anyway.
United Kingdom - "Will stand ready to help" the citizens of the U.S. Gulf Coast
Austraila - $7.6M to the American Red Cross, plus an expert disaster response team
Japan - $200,000 to American Red Cross plus donating up to $300,000 in emergency supplies (tents, blankets, generators)
Sri Lanka - $25,000 to American Red Cross
El Salvador - offering troops to help police areas
The Dominician Republic
The United Arab Emirates
The Organization of American States
We've become the policemen of the world, but we've also become the relief workers of the world. In our time of need, those we've helped have stepped up to help us. Take a look at that list. Most of those Nations are poor, and yes, every little bit helps. They're doing what they can to help their benefactors. Those countries are our friends. Don't forget this list.
