I understand your concerns, but in a way, ( please dont judge, Im all for humanitarian efforts ), but with so many people losing their homes and jobs
right here in the US, I'd prefer to take care of our own, before any efforts are administered to the Japanese. I mean, they knew the risks in
nuclear energy, further, they knew that they experience a high volume of earthquakes, which should have been a red flag.
Yes it's tragic, but its a tragedy that the Japanese nationals need to resolve, not the rest of the globe. We have our own ongoing tragedies right
here, loss of jobs, loss of homes, students failing elementary school...If we (the US) went to Japan, and " saved " the day, do you think that would
bring back jobs, or make the American people out of work more prosperous? No, it would just mean that those on unemployment have more taxes taken out
of the unemployment check to front the bill. Further, say the very same disaster happened here, do you honestly think anyone would come help us,
especially with the " name " we've given ourselves? There is alot of resentment towards the US currently...And I have to wonder, if anyone would
come to our aid, considering everyone across the globe is always looking to the US to give aid and hand outs....
It's not that I lack compassion, I'm a realist. And right now what is real, is that my own country men are losing their jobs, homes, liberties,
rights and the list goes on......
