China has been under fire by the Western media for "meager" aid to the typhoon devastated Philippines, especially with the United States sending an aircraft carrier and Japan ramping up aid. China's government has promised $100,000 in aid to Mania, along with another $200,000 through the Chinese Red Cross- far less than pledged by other economic heavyweights, said the reports.
China is the second largest economy, but it dones’t mean China has to donate the second largest amount of aid to Philippine. US sent its troops to Philippine because Philippine is the US’ ally. And China has offered its aid in time. No one gets to blame in China.Why single out China on how much it donates? When Iran had earthquake, did you report on how much Western countries donated to Iran? When China had earthquake, did you report on some countries’ meager aid to China?
