Im not sure where people get the idea the US is completely walled off from accepting foreign aid. As a matter of fact it happens all the time through sister city programs. Springfield MO sister city in Japan sent resources when Springfield got slammed with a massive ice storm a few years ago.

When the earthquakes hit japan, springfield returned the favor and sent aid and resources to their sister city.

The UAE sent over 100 million in aid for Hurricane Katrina.

That's awesome, dude. The UAE is a wealthy nation a fairly bizarre place by American standards but generosity and kindness are a common thread. So is oil-lust. But seriously, props to UAE for the generosity. Joplin can use it for sure.

When we become too arrogant or prideful to accept a helping hand when in need, we have lost our
humbleness. It isn't like The U.S. has not accepted help in the past. One example would be the
support of France in the early days of our independence. You are spot on. Thanks for the comment.

Signals, I "Never Look a Gift Horse in The Mouth." I see this as a pleasant suprise. However, being jaded
as I am, it wouldn't be uncommon in todays world for there to be strings attached. I know you S a a v y.

Rock on
