Hate to say I called it (My other post on Wed - last week)... but here we are on a Monday and whats the news? Rioting, infection, frustration and a rising death toll (according to yahoo news: 200,000) as rescue and manpower try to keep up with time as it slips away. Very sad.

@Bored2Run: My reply to auburnjunky was meant to get things strait. "3 days before ..., nobody helps ..." was just wrong.

Bored2Run: "Also, while you Wiki'd the Katrina donations from abroad to the U.S. you forgot to learn that the total of those donations didn't meet a fraction of what the U.S. has doled out ..."

from http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Development... :
"United States (0.16% of GNI) and Japan (0.17% of GNI) where in fact giving least among the members of DAC."
(That doesn't cover private desaster relief donations)
My point is: Don't think that the U.S. (as a country) or U.S. citisens are the only ones who care to help and never get it back. Or let anyone propagate such nonsense. Don't let such rants cloud your decision to help. See the real relations.

thats terrible.
good news is, though, that bush isnt president anymore, so some support has been given immediately."

You're blind and your comment's completely false.

Every U.S. President has responded immediately to other countries natural disasters. From military guard and relief, financial funds and implementations of private corporate contractors. They've also immediately called upon and freely transported the larger religious missionary organizations with their volunteers and supplements as well as the American Red Cross teams. Not only that but continued to support countries long after triage and emergent gears were in place.

Stop making stupid political judgements when you have no clue about what you're judging.

Jerk.

"Osmandias- 'Help had been offered, even by Cuba. (Within 24 h, but rejected by the State Department.)'

Osman, have you no experience in the history between the U.S. and Cuba? NO. Obviously.

Pfft. EMBARGO. Look it up on Wiki. Then we'll talk.

Also, while you Wiki'd the Katrina donations from abroad to the U.S. you forgot to learn that the total of those donations didn't meet a fraction of what the U.S. has doled out to other nations EACH TIME any one of them has met with disasters. Immediate funds and resources as well as continued donations and resources long after other countries made dump donations and moved on...

Katrina was failure by our own leaders tbh: the Mayor of N.O.; the Governor of LA.; the U.S. Pres. That goes to show that despite our wealth, we're still vulnerable.

If you don't like us? Fine. Won't stop us from helping you and your country in your time of need.

Think about that.

some of these pictures were too powerful, i havnt cried from a picture in awhile
the people complaining about journalists taking pictures are incredibly stupid...these arent people taking snapshots--its paid journalists who deliberately went to Haiti or were assigned to go to Haiti taking pictures with $1000+ cameras to expose a natural disaster to the world so that people will donate their time and money to help...seriously do some minor thinking and dont type every piece of poo that comes out of ur mind

auburnjunky: "New Orleans sat, without help, for 3 days before anyone outside our country showed any type of support."

Help had been offered, even by Cuba. (Within 24 h, but rejected by the State Department.)

"Kinda funny that we go out of our way to help and devote resources when someone else is in need, but when we are having a hard time, nobody helps."

see http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Internation...

"And people wonder why we feel the need to be the world's police?"

Nobody likes you, if you declare yourself the sherif without being asked.

i love how there's the one picture warning that is graphic while it holds one body and no blood. whereas there are pictures with a lot of blood. but yeah, over 100,000 dead/injured. horrible. support has been great though

Worldwide support of this has been great.

New Orleans sat, without help, for 3 days before anyone outside our country showed any type of support.

Kinda funny that we go out of our way to help and devote resources when someone else is in need, but when we are having a hard time, nobody helps.

And people wonder why we feel the need to be the world's police?

What the hell, the first one and a few others of people needed help and the guys like, "Nah, I'll just take a snapshot of the worst day of your life! Just try to look desperate, mmkay?" *takes pic*

I really feel for them! Something they needed like a hole in the head! I wish I could do more than feel sorry for their situation but as they say charity starts at home and unless I win the lottery this weekend, not much I can do... It is good however to see a few countries including my own have mobilised to help! Love human nature sometimes.

How awful, my heart goes out, money too when I can find where to send it. Photographers help by taking these pictures- they allow the rest of the world to see exactly how terrible this is. Lets face it, how many on here would have been so upset and willing to donate had they NOT seen these pictures?

I heard about this one on the pub radio station while driving, and didn't think much of it at the time. Some part of me assumed it was a poverty stricken country greedily looking for a handout for what was probably a pretty minor event. Another "yay we had a minor crisis, where's our freebies?" scenario. Perhaps a part of me was just tired of people crying wolf.
I feel like a jerk now...in hindsight, and yes I will be donating with some research.
That is insane destruction. Someone picked up Haiti and shook them like a snowglobe. A 7.0 quake with deathtoll estimation at 100,000? With improper handling of the situation that number could rise with infections,and disease outbreak, nowhere for the homeless to go, and possible violence (from riots, frustration, who knows).
Hope they get the aid they need both medical and to rebuild.
