Yet Another Hideous American Military Provocation

USS Essex and the USS Kearsarge were underway before the winds settled down. In the meantime at least 1200 European helicopters are still on station protecting Luxembourg from alien invasion.

The American people through the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) pledged to make available more than $10 million of Food for Peace assistance for the relief and immediate recovery efforts for the Cyclone Sidr response in Bangladesh.
Of course beneath the Katrina-esque concerned silence, the BBC managed to discount the immediate U.S. funding to $2 million, but so be it. At least they managed to blame Climate Change before it even made landfall, and we all know what a tremendous service repeating that one more time is to all those people clinging to trees.

Apparently, the right kind of military provocation was found. Two days after Essex and Kearsarge were dispatched:
EU pledges 6.5 million euros in aid to Bangladesh cyclone victims
And if their green sensibilities will permit them to be seen getting some aid there themselves, they would be in business.
