Above is for people who will whine that other nations didn't help us in our time of need!

I've also heard of many other nations offering money and aid. I'll post when I find a direct reference if I have time. (I've actually seen reports, but don't have them at hand right now.)

I can't remember where now but I saw a list of a large group of nations that had pledged aid through the UN. I've also heard that Bush is refusing most aid. I'm not sure about that part yet though.
