US Accepts International Assistance for Gulf Spill
The United States is accepting help from 12 countries and international organizations in dealing with the massive oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico.
The State Department said in a statement Tuesday that the U.S. is working out the particulars of the help that’s been accepted.
The identities of all 12 countries and international organizations were not immediately announced. One country was cited in the State Department statement — Japan, which is providing two high-speed skimmers and fire containment boom.
More than 30 countries and international organizations have offered to help with the spill. The State Department hasn’t indicated why some offers have been accepted and others have not.
McAuley’s World Comments:
1200 National Guard Troops were promised for the border almost 5 weeks ago and they have not arrived. Lets hope for the best while we reserve judgment and wait and see when the first “help” is actually deployed in the Gulf. Our compliant Main Stream Media will report a story like this and then file it away. The people in the Gulf will continue to “pray for help” everyday until the flow of oil has stopped and the spill has been cleaned up.
Day 70 and, “The State Department said in a statement Tuesday that the U.S. is working out the particulars of the help”.
