They can and will, but it will take time. Prolly a month or two just to get the water out.

Yes, this is true. America is always helping out others but our payment is nil to none. Like my old history teacher said "Europeans want our diplomacy and our blood". That goes for other countries too. We are loved when something happens because WE have money and WE have power but we get no payback because they have no need to help us out. America is used and abused all the time.

yes i dont think america would like our help, they seem to like to feel all powerful, until a hurricane comes and knocks them on their knees. i say we even stop giving them the christmas tree in boston!

>EDIT<

I've seen some appeals for help, people should send money to help with the disaster

That's true. But the gas prices will go down when the situation in usa is fixed. Actually I just read on the news that usa asked for international help. Don't know if this is true, but that's what it said.

All you canadians and presumably europeans that are sayin we are really stuck up have it completely backwards. Yes we feel as though we have a great deal of power(dont even try to dispute it cause we do) yet everyone that I have talked to feels betrayed. Why should we keep shipping money out when we get nothing in return. We need it and yet everyone just looks and says "they are rich let them deal with it" Attitudes like that piss me off. Just be a decent human and look at the situation without national boarders. If this keeps on happening and the world continues to turn their backs on us why should they expect money when a hurricane slams into their coast. The other major powers arent invincible. Dont be stupid and think about it in terms of "if somethin happens to us who is the first one that we look to for a hand out" Prolly gonna be us so dont turn ur backs on us now. And quit thinking we all walk around like were hot Sh**.
