Are we doing enough?

While the United States is in Haiti trying to help the suffering, the question we need to really ask ourselves is, are we doing enough.
Ponder about the country Israel for a minute, they flew in 144 doctors and built a rescue- state of the art-hospital in 24 hours. Respectively, if the United States is a superpower, then we obviously have the resources and man power to provide lavish help to Haiti. My question to you is, “We are doing something, but are we really doing as much as we possibly can?”

    We are doing plenty. We sent search and rescue teams from all over the country. Chances are the doctors from Israel volunteered their time. How many doctors from the US have gone? I don't know for sure, but I know 4 personally who have been there for various periods of time.

    The US has given and done plenty. How much have any of the terrorist organizations done?

    I'd gladly vote to spend more money and time helping other countries...only after we have achieved political peace, economic stability, and giving everyone in the country a house and income.

    we are doing plenty we've sent container ships full of food there we have our military down there doing search and rescue missions and trying to keep peace we are using our time and money on haiti when it could be spent here. Ok israel built a hospital in 24 hours but they dont have as many men down there helping as we do. its not the united states problem to go and solve for them it's fine to help but we shouldn't take the biggest burden for this

    Yea, we have over 10,000 troops over there, a "shit-ton" of doctors and a "shit-ton" of other volunteers. Not to mention a few assholes that are
    trying to kidnap Haitians from their homeland (I'm speaking of the 10 Americans that are locked up in Haiti because they are idiots). We have plenty of help over there.

    PS: We have raised more money for Haiti than any other natural disaster to take place on this side of the world.

    PS:PS: I have a lot more to say about this, but I'll spare you all for now. +3 for the topic

    The first sentence was referring to the fear culture within America, something which I am actually very knowledgeable about (even if I sound arrogant saying so). The second was a question directed at the person above specifically, not the nation. The third was designed to show how I think far too many people think about the world and themselves. I've never said anything negative about the American people as a whole because that would be a ridiculous comment to make, I've made several about the nation itself however :P

    I generally consider myself pretty mature. I'm also willing to accept when I'm ignorant on a subject, I'd then try to learn more on the subject to make up for my shortcomings. Ignorance is a very different thing to stupidity and isn't something people should ever be ashamed of.

    I would say you're doing enough when you're doing all you can logically do. I don't know enough about your economy or how much aid you've already given to say whether or not you could do more.

    I understand what you're saying. I'm not saying it's not an amazing, humane, wonderful thing to do. It is. I'm just saying we need to take care of ourselves first in my opinion. I know it's callous, and i know that what we're doing there is just and right. Just saying.

    Agreed with that one, We have our own problems to sort out before we can give everything we have to others.
