    Just a question, has anyone heard of what other countries are offering in the way of help? I heard the EU is offering oil, just wondering if anything else was going on.

    I wouldn't expect much from other countries. If the US can sink more than $1 billion per day into the Department of Defense, many might assume we'd be able to take care of the problem on our own.

    I HOPE other countries help out. The U.S. has always sent billions of dollars in aid to other countries for decades for floods, earthquakes, famines, the tsunami, etc. I hope THIS time WE get some help. We can sure use it.

    We are the wealthiest, most powerful nation of all time. We spend a billion or more every week to occupy other countries. We do everything we can to derail any significant effort to limit the CO2 emissions which might lead to increased hurricane activity. So we shouldn't expect anything more than a token display from anyone. We shouldn't even need it. How could so much money be sunk into homeland security and emergency management yet we lose control when a completely expected disaster strikes one of our more minor big cities.

    The latest I've heard is that other countries are going to be sending us 60 million barrels of oil to help us out, so we can continue to keep driving our SUV's. Carry on!
