...they were too busy preparing to start yet another war, this time with Libya.

Great. Our friends need help, there is a major nuclear catastrophe unfolding, but starting wars is a higher priority.

Our government says it's to "stop the violence" in Libya and to "protect the rebel forces".

Well, that's all fine and good, but what about PROTECTING our Japanese ALLIES and friends? What about protecting the world from nuclear fallout by doing EVERYTHING we can to stop it?

Nah, I guess invading nations and killing "hard targets" in an oil rich nation is more important.

Yes, it would seem that starting wars ranks higher than helping out our allies in Nobama's case. And his only priority higher than starting wars is filling out his NCAA tournament bracket.

While I don't doubt that the government was more interested in starting new wars than helping Japan, I still don't get why people keep saying the US has done nothing to help?

We sent aid, our Military was helping out over there. We can't just force Japan to let us do whatever we want, Japan has to request specific help from the US. All of what was requested from Japan has been done by the US.

What more do you want?

So what do you think the US should be doing in Japan? The reactor has a suicide squad working inside of it made up of Japanese workers. Too many people working on the problem becomes counter-productive! On top of all that you talk as if the assets in Japan were moved over to Libya? And anyway what good would US military personal be in Japan? We would have people jumping out of their skins accusing the US of invading Japan.
You also seem to forget that the Arab league AND our allies France amongst others, ASKED for our assistance with Libya. Which came through a UN resolution. Not like the US just decided to go interfere in Libya on it's own.

The US has sent more aid to Japan than any other country at this point. Japan has also SPECIFICALLY asked for only limited help.

Nice try though.

Jeez, I'm getting bored of ATS, mainly due to the threads like this that try to link two completely separate events together somehow, in order to fulfil a delusion of a conspiracy.

I am not from the US, but I think James (above) has it right. Just what do you want the US to do, other than what is asked to?

Those are unemployment rates. That's disgusting. We need to fix the problems in our own back yard before we go pi$$ing in someone else's.

i agree with you harry! the gov can't make money for their cronies unless they make war! to help japan would cost money for the gov, so they want us civies to fund the japan crisis because they want to further the hardship on the people. this system of world government(rome) and their new world order must end! i know they will fail!

Hey I totally agree with you. But that's not what this thread is about. It's about the US not giving enough help to Japan because they were planning to get involved with Libya. That has nothing to do with the domestic issues of the US, which are many.

I notice the OP has neglected to add any concrete examples of what he thinks the US Government SHOULD be doing that it isn't.

I slightly agree that we should try to do more, but then I look at something like Hurricane Katrina, and I didn't see Japan coming to their aid sooo....but then again, the US gov't barely did either. The thing is, no matter how good a system in place, it relies on the people, and no one seems to handle catastrophes or big issues correctly. IMHO.

The US could use their alien derived tech to transport the reactors, spent fuel and surrounding buildings to the sun for disposal. Oh, that is right, they might scare the rest of the world if they reveal that tech.

Actually Japan did send aid during Katrina. Not only the Japanese government, but Japanese businesses sent millions to the US.

Even if they didn't, that doesn't change anything. Aid can only be given in the manner it is requested. The US fulfilled ALL requests from Japan for aid. So the issue of the US not helping out enough is without any merit whatsoever.

Why does it always have to be the U.S.? Where is the rest of the world, not that I don't want to help. Where is Canada, where is Europe, where is anyone in South America, where is the rest of Asia? For a NWO, they sure are turning their backs and letting us always slide in to take blame for doing too much.

On your dime. Our government will spend trillions of the tax payers money without a second thought.
then websites will pop up everywhere to ask for more support and MONEY .

Japan has money, LOTS of money. they only need spend it instead of waiting for a free hand out.

The action in Libya, and it is action now, is a result of a consensus in the UN by vote, nobobdy asked anybody for help against Libya. Japan has and will have help, and more help as needed. They are pretty resourceful people anyway. As for their own people working at the nuclear plant, they are very brave, and at risk, calling them a suicide squad is just flippant, and degrading.

Like I said this thread is about the US not sending ENOUGH aid to Japan because of the Libya situation, which just isn't true. Whether or not we SHOULD send aid is another thread and subject entirely.

As far as I know there are british search and rescue teams there already. European hardware would take a while to get there, and US ships were deployed around the 12th or 13th... they would have to wait for safe seas anyway. So what exactly is the rant about? first things first. The biggest need is to contain the nuclear plants, Fuel= transportation, and to look for those missing and the dead. Fuel is also important to carry out all those things, as well as evacuation.
