How about all the western world send out a percentage of their armed forces they have on standby at home to the areas hit by the Tsunami?
Most countries have regiments not yet deployed to the Gulf.
Im sure if you asked the soldiers what they would rather do, they would choose to help out the most needy. Defineing "needy" is a hard one to call,
but from what i have seen, i would send our troops to do a worth while thing for humanity.
I think we have enough troops to cover both senarios.
Just my thoughts , because i just wish i could do more for the people who were affected.
