America Refuses Foreign Nations' Help


Recommended Posts

I erased the first post because it is not fact, just a bunch of conjecture, rumor, and opinion.

This section of the form is not for that. The hurricane catastrophe is too important to let people use it to create fear uncertainty, and doubt.

Facts only. Cite sources. No rumors allowed.

Afghanistan has offered $100,000 in aid for the relief effort.

China has offered $5,000,000 and rescuers, if needed.

Iran has offered aid, though I believe it will be channelled through The Red Crescent.

Perhaps most amazing, CUBA has offered 26 tons of supplies. They have 1500 doctors waiting at an airport holding area, ready to fly to the US as soon as permission is granted.
