I don't know what to say...

found in the comments on

"I think 350 million is a bit much, to be honest. A dollar goes a LONG way over there. What would they be needing with a BILLION dollars of relief? More huts? and I know I'm sounding somewhat cruel, but wouldn't it be a lot more humane to get those people airlifted OUT of there? A ticket to any other country on the planet? Giving them food and water might help save them today, but there is no infrastructure left there in so many areas. Why isn't anyone looking at just getting them OUT of there? Wouldn't it really be better for those people to give them a ticket and a fresh start somewhere else? We sure have the money to do THAT for them now....Get them out of their daily misery, instead of wasting man hours and money trying to live in a giant junk yard with no facilities and no infrastructure; nothing but disease, pestilence and months if not years ahead of them to get it cleaned up. I say, with the trauma they've already suffered, and being left with nothing anyway, set them up somewhere else, where at least they can have some comfort and daily basics of life."
