The aid was not "free", shameful people that they are.

Only Mexico, offered the U.S. anything for free


At least 22 nations -- including Britain, where BP is based -- have offered oil-collecting skimmers, boom, technical experts and more to help the U.S. cope with the Gulf of Mexico oil spill. But their generosity comes with a price tag

The State Department confirmed that nearly every offer of equipment or expertise from a foreign government since the April 20 oil rig explosion would require the U.S. to reimburse that country.

Only Mexico, with wide swaths of poverty among its population, offered the U.S. anything for free. It said it would give the U.S. government some containment boom. BP separately purchased 13,780 feet of boom and two skimmers from Mexico in early May, according to the State Department.

"We're not disappointed," State Department spokesman Mark Toner said Friday. "We're quite pleased with the international offers of assistance. What we're concerned with right now is getting these types of assistance as they become available, as they are useful to our cleanup operations, getting them into action so they can clean up the Gulf."

The offers include:

The offers include:

Britain, America's closest ally and headquarters to London-based BP, said it would sell chemical dispersants and containment boom for use cleaning up the spill. London's mayor, Boris Johnson, has previously complained about what he called "buck-passing and name-calling" in the U.S. against BP.


Russia, which received $70.5 million in U.S. aid last year and $78 million in 2008, said it could send boom, oil containers and ships if the U.S. paid for them.


China offered containment boom for a price. When a major earthquake struck in northwest China in April, the U.S. quickly gave $100,000 for relief supplies, and after another major earthquake in southwestern China in 2008, the U.S. donated $500,000 through the U.S. embassy in Beijing to the Red Cross to buy and deliver emergency supplies there.

Congressional researchers estimate the U.S. spends roughly $30 million on foreign aid to China each year, including educational exchanges and health programs.



Israel, which receives roughly $3 billion in U.S. military aid and other assistance, also said it would send containment boom, if the U.S. paid for it.


France offered to send chemical dispersants and equipment to clean oil off birds but only for a price.



Kenya, which received more than $24 million in U.S. aid last year and $11 million in 2008 for humanitarian aid, offered to send fire boom but only if the Obama administration paid.


Vietnam offered a ship with oil-collecting sweep arms if the U.S. paid for it. The U.S. spent $102 million in all types of aid to Vietnam in 2008. When Typhoon Ketsana hit that country last fall, affecting 3 million people, the U.S. spent $100,000 on relief operations.


Romania made a "general offer of support" but asked the U.S. government for payment. After heavy rains sent in July 2008 sent four major rivers over their banks and killed five people, the U.S. gave $50,000 for emergency supplies.


Croatia offered to send technical experts and plans, for a price. The U.S. gave Croatia $50,000 to buy local firefighting equipment in 2007 when more than 800 wildfires broke out during an unusually hot and dry summer.



lol considering all the help we have given.. money, food, aid.. military etc... yet when something happens here they want to charge us?? Time to stop being the world's police force and let them see how things go when we stop helping anyone.

The oil disaster will not effect the whole US. Just mainly the areas around the Gulf, and possibly the East Coast. I know some people in Florida who are getting ready to move out.

I am worried about how this oil disaster is going to effect the economy. We are in a recession, and a tragedy like this could cause a hyperinflation, or maybe a economic collapse. I have noticed that the cost groceries are already starting to go up.

That's about how I see it. Everything east of the Missippi River will be contaminated, just like the 30%+ area that is quarantined from gulf fishing. The agriculture business will fall on its face along with the economic base beneath it. Our saving grace is resources in the Atlantic but that will get its fair share of toxins. And just in time for BoyBamas angelic healthcare program (with built in collection thugs).

If they decide to leave the site in lieu of Alex, they may just dump in a million gallons on top of it 'for safe measure' since they will be away from it a couple weeks. When they stop injecting CorExit into it (if they decide not to tough out the 12' waves ) we will see all that gunk coming straight to the surface. It's only 40,000,000 more gallons....

If this is true, then we're f#$@ed. Good thing I still have my gas masks, water and rice supply from the "swine flu scare" a year ago. So if I hear of people getting sick and dying from toxic rain, hopefully I will be able to survive long enough to get to a safe location.

Christ, BP are effing idiots.

Something you need to consider before you begin to flee......the wind blows everywhere, constantly. Jet stream, trade winds. Everyone on Earth got a taste of the radiation from Chernobyl. The gulfstream is the largest river in the world and it will carry the oil north to iceland and Greenland. Those waters supply fish for half the world. When the gulfstream cools, the water goes deep and heads south. The oil rides high and works its way into the Baltic sea and down the European and African coasts. It never stops moving.

We (humans) are the cockroaches in this equation. I believe we will survive/adapt, like always. However, the gulfstream makes the oil, go round and round...guess waterworld will never come to be.

Perfect timing....With the new immigration laws being put into place, we cannot go into Mexico, because they will be pissed at us.....


There are very stiff penalties for illegally entering Mexico. Prison time.

Another piece of truth the elites will not tell you. I sure am glad I did not bring any children into this mess we call America.

Everything will happen as it will.

To soak up the negativity is to fall into the clutches of fear.

All is well, and all will be well. You all made it this far didn't you?

I was reading a passage in the Bible that just made me stop and think of this. I'm not saying that it is any way related, but made me think of this website:

“Also, there will be signs in sun and moon and stars, and on the earth anguish of nations, not knowing the way out because of the roaring of the sea and its agitation, while men become faint out of fear and expectation of the things coming upon the inhabited earth." - Luke 21:25, 6.

If we were in the kind of shape the article states then I doubt if Mexico would have a choice. I bet those refugees will have the worlds best military as escorts.

This oil leak scenario is getting out of hand.

Where is the oil stored? Under the sea bed. Does oil naturally spill into the sea, year after year after year? Yes it does. Does it account for more oil then has already been sprayed into the sea now? Yes it does. Does nature do a fine job at removing oil? Yes it does.

Stop taking a story and taking it into all directions. Oil will disappear, without human intervention. This is just yet another ATS story that has been pulled out of proportion. Yes, it's wrong that it happened but not disastrous. You see birds with oil on there backs, yes but they will begin to learn to stay away from the oil, until it clears. Then, they still live. Same as the fish will do but surprise, surprise ladies and gentlemen, they are still alive. It's just a minor set back for the ocean's nothing the earth won't repair.

Just a massive inconvenience for us humans, again. This is the only reason you are all moaning.

If all the oil spilled in the gulf so far were canned in 8 oz. cans and each American was given an equal amount,each person would receive FOUR cans of oil.

That is all 32 ozs.

Not a apocalyptic amount.

Stop the continuing fearmongering.

I haven't seen or heard so much ignorance since the oil spill in the Santa Barbara channel.

All the green retards said the ocean would never recover the sea life would not come back etc.

They of course were wrong.

The only thing that did happen was the oil companies punished the people of Santa Barbara county.

That is why the gas there is so damn expensive.

Look for 7 dollar a gallon gas by the end of the year.
