Why aren't the Dutch stepping up? They know levees and live under sea level.

<{POST_SNAPBACK}>

Actaully, NBC reported tonight that the Dutch, and several other countries in addition to Germany, including Sweden and Russia, have offered help. Even Uganda sent over $200,000. Also arriving are the Mexican Army and Navy, including a floating medical clinic. NBC news reported that this is the first time the Mexican Army has entered the US since 1846. I also read that some of the countries have had relief supplies and emergency equipment loaded onto aircraft, waiting for permission from FEMA to leave for the US. The Germans, Dutch and Mexicans are here. I haven't heard whether the Russians and Swedes have been given permission to leave yet. However, offers of help came in from around the World fairly quickly. We just weren't ready to accept them.
