    This is of a number EXCEEDING 800 million dollars worth of aid and oil. that is approximately 37.6 million dollars in value. We are so concerned with how things look that we will not accept help from other countries, even though that 800 million would have gone a LONG way. A few of the countries I understand refusing their aid- maybe, but come one, isnt the good of your people worth it. Plus how many countries REALLY have influence over us.

    This is just a rant, do with it what you will.

    At the very least it shows an extraordinary lack of grace.
