12/31   350 million, now that's more like it!!
        \_ How much have China, Japan, and Korea donated?
           \_ After the tsunami, China was the first foreigh country to send
              money, goods, and rescue team to Thailand and probably others
              as well. They pledged 2.62M US$ then added an extra 60.46M US$
              yesterday.  Incidentally, judging by GDP per capita, China is
              poorer than two of the countries to which it is donating money.
              Its rank is 123th (below average), quite a bit behind
              Thailand (97), Malaysia (86). cf Korea (50), Japan (17), USA (3)
              \_ Damn fucking US media, I find no mentioning of this.
                 Yeah, balanced and unbiased, my ass.
                 \_ So naive, little boy.  Go back to drinking your kool-aid.
           \_ *IF* USA has pledge to donate let say, $50 million within hours
              of diseaster (instead of days), it would of made differences
              in opinion poll.  China's aid is minute compare with USA, Japan,
              and Germany, but China was one of first nation which send out
              aids to them.
        \_ They didn't spend billions invading another country.
        \_ hopefully they buy American first, gotta pump up our economy
           \_ they already are.  buying cigarrets :p
