Help Bangladesh

The West has a duty and an opportunity right now: we need to do all we can to give assistance to those Bangladeshis whose lives have been destroyed by the recent cyclone.

But it is also strategically shrewd - a useful reminder that strength does not always means bombs and soldiers; it can also stem from clear moral standards and humanitarian care.
