WILL THE UN AND OTHER WORLD ORGANIZATIONS LEARN THE RIGHT LESSONS?

In the aftermath of the tsunami disaster, I wonder what lessons the world organizations will learn?

  • That the U.S. is somehow responsble for the entire mess, either directly or indirectly?
  • That they need to set up a money-gathering apparatus to soak up all the expected aid money?
  • That this is an excellent opportunity to generate anti-American verbiage?
  • That they need to take action to set up the infrastructure (even something as simple as a database of who to contact in the countries affected) to prevent a similar occurrence in the future?


I'm betting on all of the above, except the last.

Who can you send donations to? I've heard some disturbing things about the effectiveness of the International Red Cross. Hugh Hewitt suggests giving to WorldVision online or by calling 888-562-4453.
