can nearby countries that are not affected go to their aid offering any kind of help? thank God the majority which is in the thousands were quickly evacuated. The rivers are major rivers and need the help of other countries to rebuild breached levies. Lets see what kind of help WE SEND, I really think if our own still are awaiting their repairs from the latest storms we've had there's little hope "o" would bother himself with these countries who would greatly appreciate ANY TYPE OF HELP. Golf comes first. Pathetic but true, when a disaster happens here in our country his response comes weeks later, which shows where his heart is.

well, i'm no fan of the current u.s. president, however i seriously doubt there is much "o" can do at this point. europe and, in this case specifically, germany better hope their citizens have good insurance policies....20-30 years ago when we (the u.s.) had a larger military presence in europe we might have been able to assist....but in these days of budget cuts and the europeans wanting to free themselves of the american presence they will just have to get by on their own resources.
