Bush administration so incompetent, world takes pity on America 

A growing list of countries, many slandered and ridiculed by this administration and it's supporters, are lining up to give money, supplies and aid to the stricken Gulf Coast devastated by Hurricane Katrina.

Many countries and organizations reviled by the right wing conservatives in this country are offering help nonetheless.

French Foreign Minister Philippe Douste-Blazy said France would send its entire stock of emergency supplies, including tents, blankets, cooking equipment and camp-beds, prepositioned on the French Caribbean island of Martinique for just such an eventuality. Douste-Blazy said one shipment would leave from Fort-de-France within 24 hours and another within 48 hours.

Germany shipped 25 tonnes of food aid to the flood-stricken regions over the weekend, the defence ministry said Sunday.

"The United Nations Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs, the World Food Program, the World Health Organization, UNICEF and the High Commissioner for Refugees are ready to provide emergency staff and a wide variety of relief supplies as and when necessary," the spokesman said a statement.

Canada said Sunday it was sending thousands of camp-beds, blankets and medical supplies after a request from Washington for help.

Cuba and Venezuela, two Latin American countries often singled out for criticism by administration of US President George W. Bush, were among the first to offer humanitarian assistance



I am grateful that these and many other countries do not hold the American people responsible for the assinine comments and bigotry of this administration and it's supporters.

America, thanks to the Bush administration's incompetence, looks like a third world country trying to handle a situation beyond it's means.

It is a pitiful time indeed.
