I don't think it's a matter of money or even need; it's about humanity. We should all help each other gladly and willingly no matter where we're from.
It's also about showing some appreciation for what the US does for other countries and at least OFFERING to help for a change instead standing there with a hand out to be filled.
I see it as any other friendship. You wouldn't be my friend for long if the only reason I ever called you was to ask to borrow money and I chose to ignore you at other times, especially if your heart was broken and all you wanted from me was a hug.
