Anyone else see this in MSM? Japan has sent 8000 blankets and 150 pieces of plastic sheeting to Alabama for the tornado victims. Just wondering how
many of you would take a blanket from a country that's being irradiated beyond belief. Also, wondering if it's justifiable to send aid to another
country while your own country is crumbling. That would bring into question whether or not the United States should be sending aid to countries like
Pakistan, who harbor known terrorists, while there are so many homeless and unemployed people within it's own borders.
That's so humbling for us and generous on their part. All those things can be decontaminated, so that's not a big deal.
What is a big deal is that, in light of what's happening in their own country, no matter how horrible, they are still honorable enough to reach out
and try to help someone else. It's an amazing gesture. I think it's an example to be followed by everyone else.
Don't you remember in the MSM that we (The US) sent aide to Japan. I feel they are returning the aide to Alabama and the US. Sure it's wise to
make sure the items sent aren't contaminated with radiation, and I'm sure that precaution was taken.
Sounds like this thread should have been a rant to me. Pakistan's economic issues and governmental choices are not natural disasters. The Japan
quake and the Southern Tornadoes were.
They are a gift giving culture and the article states that they were doing it to show appreciation for US aid. The whole country is not radioactive.
Because of wind, the west coast is probably getting more radiation then most of Japan. So I wouldn't worry about that. And for the right reasons it
is justifiable to give aid to other people when then need it. This seems like a good reason, to buy cooperation from Pakistan is debatable.
I like and appreciate the responses here. They are truly refreshing. You may question my motives and my methods but my actions often get positive
results. You could say I know a little bit about human nature and psychology. Haven't seen a whole lot of action in the Japan forum lately so just
wanted to put this out there and remind people that while they're sitting comfortably in front of their computer there are people in the world with
very little comfort.
They say for every action there is an opposite and equal reaction. I just hope there is enough positive energy in this world to balance it all out.
Otherwise, the negative will destroy us.
