Have any other countries sent aid to the US when we've been hit by natural disasters or terrorist attacks?

I'm not saying we shouldn't aid other countries, it was just something I thought and was curious about.

  • yes,of course. I think the fact that many people do not know that results in too many people saying"we need to think of our country first and let them take care of themselves" A very selfish .ignorant philosophy.

  • IIRC, even Khadaffi made a show of donating blood after 9/11. We've been offered aid from just about everywhere, but we turn most of it down due to logistics.
