Medic Zero: Danger Avoid Death: Medic Zero: doyner: Danger Avoid Death: OgreMagi: I like that our military provides humanitarian aid throughout the world.  It helps people realize we are the good guys.  Well, we would be if we would stop that whole "blowing people up for no good reason" thing.

Yeah, but "blowing people up for no good reason" is where the money's at.

/sadly ...

Too brown to help, brown enough to kill seems to be the opinion of some.

As a nation, we exploited the fark out of the P.I. for decades and then continued to exert enormous influence after their independence.  "Fark you, I got mine" is no way to treat them now.

I'd be curious to learn what we exploited from them.

Read up on the Philippine-American War. Also, get real. The US, either through our government or our corporations or both, has exploited every group of people we've ever dealt with, in some fashion or another, at some time or another.

I'm aware of the insurrection. What i want to know is what there is of value in the Philippines for us to exploit.

So he can send troops to the Philippines, but he didn't send anyone to help NoLa after Katrina? Why does 0bama hate America?

Daedalus27: The Philippines has been a friend and ally for many years.  The permanent bases are gone but there is usually a presence in the country. It is easy for the US to get resources into the Philippines. The US usually have military units assigned to assist their military in terms of training to deal with their various insurgencies and they can be redirected to help.  In addition our bases in Japan are close to the region so can push men, equipment and relief materials to the area. Chances are the US will push to get some ships deployed in ports to provide medical support as well as water and power in the next few days when time is critical and land based sources are being restored.  The US has the capability and generally offers it's resources in situations like this.


That reads like a Rand Paul speech.

Maybe we didn't fight hard enough to keep the Japanese from invading during the period that the US controlled the Philippines ( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Battle_of_the_Philippines_%281941%E2%80% 9 342%29 )?  Granted we did defeat the Japanese eventually, but they did a lot of damage while they were occupying the islands.


Wait what?! We're somehow responsible for Japanese war atrocities?! Ill give you credit, I've never heard that one before.

Maybe the Philippines Army could have done something?

picturescrazy: jso2897: The comments.

I assumed this would be one of those things that absolutely no one would have a problem with except the most extreme libertarians who would rather let some more foreigners die rather than utilize resources we already had nearby to maybe help save some lives. Your comment scares me and makes me think that fringe might not be such a fringe after all. I dare not read those comments.

Our Marines do not belong doing relief aid. That can be handled by non-military personal. Is there anything else Obama can furthervdo to degrade our Military, like having one of them hold his umbrella during his speeches?

I'd liek to think its seething with sarcasm but i bet the mouthbreather wholeheartedly believes this

We kicked Spain's ass for a colony and so we broke it, we bought it, right?
