Iran Offers US Katrina Oil Relief



"Iran has offered to send 20m barrels of crude oil to the US to help with the consequences of Hurricane Katrina. But he said this could only happen if US sanctions were lifted first. The envoy, Hosein Kazempur-Arbedili, did not clarify if he meant lifted temporarily for this aid shipment, or permanently. In practice, US sanctions may well mean Iran cannot carry through on its offer, but it is a rare gesture of good will."

Venezuela to Offer Oil Aid to US



"Venezuela has offered to provide 1 mln barrels of oil to the US to help it cope with supply disruptions in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina"


In this article there is an impressive list of all the countries who have offered some aid for Katrina.

Heads up Pat Robertson!


"VENEZUELA: President Hugo Chavez, a vocal critic of the United States, offered to send cheap fuel, humanitarian aid and relief workers to the disaster area."


The nations listed:
Australia, Austria, Armenia, Azerbaijan, Bahamas, Belgium, Canada, China, Columbia, Cuba, Dominica, Dominican Republic, Ecuador, El Salvador, France, Germany, Guatemala, Greece, Guyana, Honduras, Hungary, Iceland, India, Indonesia, Israel, Italy, Jamaica, Japan, Jordan, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Mexico, the Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, Paraguay, Philippines, Portugal, South Korea, Russia, Saudi Arabia, Singapore, Slovakia, Spain, Sri Lanka, Switzerland, Sweden, Taiwan, Thailand, Turkey, United Kingdom, the United Arab Emirates, and Venezuela.

...and now they can add Iran to the long list.

I think the U.S. should takes aid from Iran, it's my hope that both countries can work on their diplomacy efforts regarding each other.

MEXICO CITY - Radio talk shows and newspapers here buzzed with excitement over news that Mexico, long on the receiving end of U.S. disaster relief, was sending a hurricane aid convoy to help its larger, richer and more powerful northern neighbor.

Carrying water treatment plants, mobile kitchens and supplies to feed victims of Hurricane Katrina, the army convoy bound for Houston will be the first Mexican military unit to operate on U.S. soil since 1846.

The convoy has "a very high symbolic content," said Javier Oliva, a political scientist at Mexico's National Autonomous University. "This is a very sensitive subject, for historic and political reasons."

It isn't aid if it's conditional. They want there sanctions lifted and they're willing to pay 20 million barrels. That isn't aid, it's an attempted bribe.
