This is not america's obligation to help. While it is tragic, we have nothing to do with this. We don't even have $1 billion to offer, but even if we did this is a result of conflict dating back thousands of years. Our $1 billion dollars would be wasted before our eyes if we sent that over there. The middle eastern culture is not about to be grateful for that cash. They'd take it and find a way to turn violent, only adding fuel to the fire.
