New Orleans Aid

I hope the British Government has offered assistance to the US Government in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina.

Is there an assumption that America is too large to require any?

Are you serious?
We don't need to be offering financial aid to the world's richest country!!

Yes. They should be able to handle it, although - it doesn't look like it at the moment.

Blue Witch, I'm not thinking about financial aid but any practical assistance that can be offered.

They really seem to be struggling at the moment.

Strange that when everyone else has a problem the Americans should help, yet I don't see Asian, African or European countries for that matter offering practical assistance - engineers, rescue teams and medical personnal would all be more than welcome I reckon. And perhaps some policemen to shoot the looters?

Where are the complaints about a shoot to kill policy for looters!?!

Why should there be complaints? you do the crime you do the time.

Stevo, What about the lack of due judicial process?
