Default Do you welcome the US naval troops at Bangladesh coast?

The first US naval ship "USS Kearsarge" is now in Bangladesh coastal territory to deliver food and medical supplies for the Cyclone Sidr victims. A second ship, the USS Essex, would arrive in coming days for the "same" reason.

Do you support and welcome the US naval troops in our territory in the name of relief (considering the fact that the arrival of the US troop to a country's territory for whatever heaven's sake is always controversial)?

As long as they're helping the victims, then why not?

I would even welcome even if there are some "other" reasons. For a country like BD, there is no point in going against US interest. It is better for us to align ourselves with the US interest in the region. That is how we can strengthen ourselves.

Sorry to burst the baloon.

Why we need to find negative out of every thing?

We (our nation) are trying our best, but strugling to address this huge task which is understandable. Now if US naval troop's effort save a single life, give food to a hungry single person, why should we complain at this time of our crisis?

How much moral authority do we (the uneffected one) have to say one way or another?

What do you think the hungry cyclone victims will say, if you ask them the question? Do you have any doubt what will be their answer?

three more battleship coming. The more the merrier. Just hope they have enough chain saws, and boots to get to places where the help is needed the most. We need all the help we can get.

Without judginh the op as being negative (its perfectly neutral), but I'll say this much:

When US comes forward to help, we criticise their actions, their weaknesses, faults and motives.

If the US doesnt come forward enough to help, we criticise that they dont do anything without a motive, their lack of actions, and why as the sole superpower of the world they dont do anything.

There's no satisfying some people.

We need any help we can get at this crictical time. We need to save those needy people. Unfortunately our country has not got enough resource like others. SIDR came and gone but took away thousand and thousands of lives. It will take our country atleast 10 years to recover from this natural disaster.

Of course. I am sure that if they tried to "pull a shifty" and engage in military efforts in Bangladesh other than saving cyclone victims, they would be found out by the local and international media...

The real question is, would the US military pull troops out of Iraq to save cyclone victims if they had too?

don't worry this is a genuine humanitarian measure from our (i.e American) side. even if it weren't, bangladesh is not at the moment important enough to have a permenent troop presence.

Depends on what you mean by US Interest. As of now our relationship with the USA is ok, and it should continue like. If aligning with US means having friendly relation like most countries are having, it is ok. However, I am sure Bangadesh wouldnt benefit that much from a one-sided fawning relationship like Howard's Australia, Poland, the new Ukraine, or Karzai's Afghanistan.

your attitude is quite ignorant.

1) there is a reason (whether valid or not) that they are protesting. who do you know who would turn down free aid in time of need? there must be a reason, right or wrong, that it is protested.

2) actually, a muslim group is helping those poor people. saudi government gave 100 million USD, which is more than anyone else combined. so i don't know where u got your "NO" from.

Ah you got it wrong mate. I was referring to Hijbur Tahrir group , hense i sed ' a muslim group' who protested against aid when people are dying of hunger. We all know whats US is doing all over the world, but it aint a time to run shows when ur people dying of hunger at ur backyard.

Anywya about occupying the land, i dont think US is interested. As Al Furqaan said above...not important enough which i agree.

I know this is not the right time to debate over USA help for Sidr disaster and I also believe they are in Bangladesh only for relief purpose, thanks to them.

Now I have a different idea about the bold part- I think BD is very imp to USA now coz
a. The political situaion in Pakistan is allmost out of control for USA and they need another Muslim country as their friend in this region. and whatever I gather is our CTG is close to USA than any other BD govt. before.
b. Recent Burma crisis.
c. OIL.
By the way, this is completely my personal opinion. Thanks
