This will be a very unpopular statement but it is how I feel. Why did we go to WWI WWII, Korea, Vietnam,ect....bomb and destroy then go and pay to rebuild? Same as we are doing in Iraq. WTF. Think about this....when the Tsunami hit overseas the US responded with millions of dollars and relief. How much did other country's give to the US after Katrina? Is there a figure? I have never seen a news article thats said anything about other countries helpinglike we help them. US first. we owe China 500,000 billion dollars!! Can we file banko on them? Country is screwed up. Our leaders to be are so tenderfoot in what they say so they dont loose the popular vote. Things need to change NOW!! We as AMERICANS need to take back our country and the way we do things. NOT CHANGE!!! Just the good old fashion US values and a little WE COME FIRST. There is an old saying....can't help others unless you can help yourself....lets do that!!!

I don't disagree with your sentiments, however there was considerable financial support from outside the US. It didn't receive widespread news coverage as the media only reports bad news (if it bleeds, it leads). Managing that aid however was a big failure according to most.

Hello there AB..

Gotta realize that most of the product platforms are interchangeable...

Across borders...And soon across companies...

I.E.... Mini van parts went to Windsor Assy., St. Louis South and Delaware Assy. (Durango)...

You know the old routine...

How do you increase profits???

Either increase market share or cut costs...

Unfortunately...cutting costs is the option of choice...

Though, cost cutting reduces market share even further...

Change for the better ...not change for the worse...or for its own sake.

If you think Detroit is slow now wait until you get a dose of Karl Marx...er...I mean Barack Obama. Even the ants won't have jobs in 4 years, but Barbra Streisand will rule the world.

Obviously, not an unpopular point of view.
