Japan is a strategic ally. They are our crucial foothold in the east. What is he doing to help?
Link Posted: 3/14/2011 1:45:20 PM EST
Not getting involved.

He is doing what he always does in time of crisis.

Hit the golf course.

He doesn't care about Japanese people.

Loaned them a teleprompter?

""The United States will continue to offer any assistance we can as Japan recovers from multiple disasters and we will stand with the people of Japan in the difficult days ahead," Mr. Obama said.

In all about 50,000 American service members are helping however they can.

The Nuclear Regulatory Commission has dispatched two of its top experts as the Japanese struggle to contain the reactor crisis that escalated throughout the weekend."



This says that U.S. Ambassador to Japan John Roos 'has emerged as the president's man on the ground':

He says our relationship is unshakable, and needed supplies will be flooding in soon.

Yes, I know he has said a little. Token assurances and platitudes. What has he done?

What do you want him to do?

A) Interfere with the Japanese authorities on the ground while engineering a photo op?
B) Give a stern lecture to the reactors on how they need to be more civic minded?
C) Print even more US currency in order to save 'their' economy at the detriment of ours?
D) All of the above

We should consider the requests that are asked of us, not rush in with a 'FEMA trailer' plan...

Too bad, he should send them Dave_A and LW303.

They are SUPER SMART and could fix everything in a jiffy!

I had a big WTF moment when he said that. Was that supposed to be a sick joke, or something?
Link Posted: 3/14/2011 1:58:53 PM EST
They are moving a third aircraft carrier to Japan, I think in part to help with the helio lift and just as important to show that we will protect them and pick up the slack in defense due to the Japanese loosing so many fighter aircraft.

I've only heard that the Reagan is there, is the Big George coming home?

The other would be LHD-2 Essex, yes?

Staying out of the way.

On the other hand US Military is helping shuttle supplies and evacuations. And if you might not have noticed, when Japanese airports were closed, the flights in the air were diverted to American Military Bases.

He sent in a contingency of 1500 Marines to save, preserve and protect a house he once slept in.

Same thing he did during his short time as Senator Obama, and what he's pretty much done on everything thus far, voting "Present".

Well then I don't expect his eminence, Barak Obama, really gives a shit.

Here's a picture from Weather Undeground of an LA County Fire Dept. Search and Rescue squad staging equipment last Friday. I'd imagine they're in Japan by now. They have alot of long days ahead of them.

I hope he does alot with everything we can. I do not want to see Japan slipping into China's hands over this.

It doesn't matter what he does or doesn't do. People here will say it's wrong just because it's Obama.

Ping doesn't sound Japanese at all. You're thinking of Chinese.

But you're right, he's probably playing golf.
Link Posted: 3/14/2011 5:03:40 PM EST
The United States government is broke, bankrupt. How much additional money would you like to borrow from the Chinese to give to Japan? Or, would you prefer to to just print more dollars?
BTW, the Japanese hold a significant amount of the American debt. I would like to help but.........

We will do what is needed and then some. I do pray for the good of the Japanese people that in no form or fashion is FEMA involved. That would be the 3rd catastrophe.

1.EARTHQUAKE
2.TSUNAMI
3.FEMA

Like Hurricane Katrina in Louisiana

1.HURRICANE
2.LEVEE BREACHES
3.FEMA

1. Mainland China

Amount of U.S. debt: $891.6 billion

Share of total foreign debt: 20.4%

2. Japan

Amount of U.S. debt: $883.6 billion

Share of total foreign debt: 20.2%

Would Obama really help someone other than himself?

The way he's helping is by not being President of Japan.

Posters you say?

What is that expression, birds of a feather?

I was looking at it from the perspective of killing two birds with one stone.

The remaining "poster" left the building shortly after...

Do you miss them, tc?

The Japanese Prime Minister rejected President Obama's food aid plan yesterday. Other Japanese officials were quoted saying "What the fuck was he thinking? We don't need any fried chicken, watermelon, or purple drank." An unnamed member of the media tried to explain it off saying that Obama only made the overture because he was upset that teleprompter manufacturing cease for at least a year as the biggest factory was destroyed.
