My favorite retired USAF reservist, Baldilocks, points to a post by Varifrank, wherein he waxes eloquent regarding US relief efforts for the tsunami survivors.

Juliette quoted this portion (below) of Varifrank’s post, which made me curious to read the rest of it. The excerpt is more powerful when you read the entire post. The speaker is a Hindi man, who lost family in the disaster. He was responding to someone else’s sneering comment about the US military aid. Apparently the sarcastic commenter saw no value in sending an aircraft carrier. Varifrank set them straight, and then his friend spoke up:

"Can you let your hatred of George Bush end for just one minute?
There are people dying! And what are your countries doing? Amazon.com
has helped more than France has. You all have a role to play in the
world, why can’t you see that? Thank God for the US Navy, they dont
have to come and help, but they are. They helped you once and you
should all thank God they did. They didnt have to, and no one but them
would have done so. I’m ashamed of you all…
