Letter to the editor: China quake column misses the mark
To the editor:
Regarding "Opinion: Lessons of the China quake."
Don't get me wrong, I have plenty of compassion for the individuals impacted by the quake. But it is not the U.S. government's responsibility! To take a pot shot at them for their token support is unwarranted.
There will be lots of support flowing to Chengdu from generous individuals and companies in the U.S. I would prefer the U.S. government provide no financial support. China has established a $20 billion fund to attract tech firms to the region, so money is not the problem for the relief efforts.
How the Chinese government chooses to spend it may be.
