Philippines To China...

Thanks, but no thanks.

( – China on Wednesday increased its offer of aid to Typhoon Haiyan victims in the Philippines after an earlier pledge of $100,000 prompted derisive headlines and commentary about a lost opportunity to show goodwill in a region troubled by its belligerent behavior in the South China Sea.
With a U.S. aircraft carrier group making way towards the Philippines in a powerful show of humanitarian support, Beijing’s embassy in Manila announced that China would provide relief supplies worth 10 million renmimbi ($1.6 million), including blankets and tents.

Um, dear Commies, it cost us more just to move that carrier group to the Philippines than it did for you to offer even this.

Okay, Filipino and American friends, let's show the ChiComs how much we appreciate their effort!
