Many countries have offered assistance. I think though we are still at a stage where assistance coming in will not be best allocated, we're still in the "assessment" stage right now. Rest assured, the international community will help. Remember, with the Asian Tsunami people offered to help but it was at least a week or more before the international community was able to put relief workers on the ground in significant numbers. We should be less concerned about international aid in this case though, as unlike many of the regions affected in the tsunami, we in the US actually have considerable resources to assist and rebuild already in our own country.

The day after the tsunami the united states was accused of being stengy by other country's despite all the aid the united states gave to the victims. Now we have been hit with a hurricane that completely wiped out one of our city's and I have yet to hear anyone lend out any support or help for us.
The day of the tsunami there were prayer services all around th world and there was moral support by other countries and yet there hasn't seemed to be much of a reaction to what happened to New Orleans, which is almost just as devastating.
I do not mean for this to be politically baited but if were stengy how come no one is helping us, our nation can provide basic services but cannot rebuild homes, schools and hospitals. Not to mention some assistance rescuing people would be nice because with the man power we have it can take days or weeks to help ever one get to dryer ground.
I cannot not say no ones been lending any help because I'm sure some were along the line there has been some help but were is it who is it and is there any at all?
