I seem to have offended at least one person by my post so I am just going to clarify what I was saying.
The U.S. are always getting involved in everything worldwide, good and bad. They spend all their resources, are up to their eyes in debt to the international bankers, and fail to deal with their own home problems. Just like the us, the U.K.
I was not really trying to offend or upset. However, I feel sorry that whenever something like this happens, the U.S. now really have no choice. You have to help. The world expects it.
I think that that's pretty fair to say. No offence meant to anyone.
I would like to say that this is no time for personal quarrels or to discuss international politics, but rather our thoughts should be with the people of Haiti and everyone affected by this terrible disaster.
