Yet again USA has stepped forward with aid to a foreign country. Too many times I have read in this forum negative things about the USA. Please...are there any other countries helping? I hope so...yet...I bet there are still many Iranians out on the street burning American flags! I know we are not perfect...but we do good also.

Iran accepts U.S. aid for quake victims

TEHRAN, Iran -- President Mohammad Khatami said Iran would accept the United States' offer of aid for survivors of Saturday's earthquake in northwestern Iran that killed 245 people. The countries do not have diplomatic relations, but the United States said that it had offered food and other assistance through the Swiss Embassy, which represents its interests in Tehran

I believe most of the European countries give more in foreign aid relative to GDP than the US.

Nice belief! But...would you be giving aid to a country that gave your country one of the worst pages in its history...or have you forgotten the Iran hostage crisis??? Sorry..but I have not read anything about European countries coming to Iran's aid...plus..what difference does it make how much you give? As long as you give!?

Blowback.

>>Sorry..but I have not read anything about European countries coming to Iran's aid...

"Japan, France, Belgium, Italy and the United Arab Emirates are among other countries that have offered funds or sent aid to the victims. UN agencies have also mobilized to bring assistance."

Blowback? Good argument!!!! Japan, France, Belgium, Italy, and UAE, Parabens! Still does not prove that they are sending more or less than the USA. My original point still being that the America has once again stepped forward with aid to a foreign country. Should there not simply be praise for that? Ahh...but I see "Sick"...it obviously is not good enough for you!

I wasn't complaining. I was just pointing out that the US was not the only country to offer aid.
