Tsunami: Natural disasters always being out the whiny leftist attitude of everyone drop their capitialist ways and give give give! Sally Jenkins wants the BCS teams to give up their winnings and send it to Phuket. Robert Rivkin wants to have a "Tsunami surtax", Senator Leahy wants to move money from rebuilding Iraq to go to Tsunami relief. Then you have whiners like Clare Short who sees an evil thing when President Bush makes a coalition of countries to coordinate relief efforts that do not involve the United Nations. “I think this initiative from America to set up four countries claiming to coordinate sounds like yet another attempt to undermine the UN when it is the best system we have got and the one that needs building up,” she said.“Only really the UN can do that job,” she told BBC Radio Four’s PM programme.“It is the only body that has the moral authority. But it can only do it well if it is backed up by the authority of the great powers.” The fact the UN in its relief efforts are spotty(see Darfur) and corrupt(See Oil for Food) you will forgive me for not taking Short seriously at any level.
