Subject: RE: BS: Irony of Tsunami Relief

"...on a per capita basis, the contribution of Gulf governments matches or is greater than that of many Western governments. For example, the US's pledge of $350 million in public money represents about $1.20 per person. Meanwhile Kuwait's aid amounts to over $44 per person and Qatar's $25 million pledge is nearly $30 per person."
