Has the US accepted the help that Cuba has offered?

www.counterpunch.org...


"Likewise, Cuba is ready to send via Houston, or any other airport of your choosing, 500 additional specialists in Comprehensive General Medicine, with the same equipment, who could be at their destination point at noon or in the afternoon of tomorrow, Saturday, September 3. Thus, the 1100 said medical doctors, with the resources described, would be caring for the people in most need of attention in the aftermath of the hurricane.

"A third group of 500 specialists in General Comprehensive Medicine could also be sent, and would arrive in the morning of Sunday, September 4. Consequently, in under 36 hours, 1100 of these doctors equipped with said resources' ­the back-packs--, 'which amount to 26.4 tons of medication and diagnostic kits' ­mostly medication-- 'will be caring for the neediest people in the aftermath of a hurricane like Katrina."


Nope, they put it off to grandstanding, and insulted Castro. Do you figure there are some people dying right now who would probably not really mind if the doctor saving their life was Cuban?

www.cnn.com...


Although Cuban President Fidel Castro has said through the media he is willing to send more than 1,000 doctors to treat victims of the hurricane, the State Department official said no official offer has come in from the Cuban government. (Full story)

"Fidel grandstanding on a tarmac with his doctors in front of a camera is not considered a legitimate offer of U.S. assistance," the official said.

"There has been zero communication from anyone in the Cuban government offering anything specific. The Cuban government has our number if it really wants to help."


Has our number? WTF?

Oh, they have "enough doctors"? Oh, then my mistake, I thought this was a major catastrophe.

Do you have a link for this article you mention?

LOL I was looking around for that link, and I saw the Venezula offer details too.

www.boston.com...


Perhaps the most unusual offer came from Hugo Chavez, the socialist leader of Venezuela who is openly hostile to the US government. On Wednesday, Chavez offered drinking water, food, and oil to the United States.

Later, Chavez told Venezuelan television that Bush was a ''cowboy" and the ''king of vacations" who had failed to evacuate the population of New Orleans before the hurricane hit.


King of Vacations, haha.

Chavez has quite a sense of humour. He offered his military troops to the US plus cheap oil

*slap slap*

Those we "perceive" as evil sometimes are the lesser evils than those we perceive as "good"

Castro: A schizophrenic paranoid type dictator, mental problems all his life, delussions of grandure, etc. I hate the ground he walks on. But deep down a human offering aid. He, himself, doesnt take any aid from the USA, because its the nature of man to say FU, i wont take any help. Its the testosterone and pride.

Bush: ( fill in the blanks here)- the same.

Mankind is one complex and strange creature.

The US is probably afraid of Cuban or Venezuelan spies infiltrating the country under the guise of relief aid. Chavez and Castro aren't the only paranoid people in this world.
