I am surprised at the news of US barring some food imports from Japan (milk, milk products, fresh vegetables, fruits etc.) due to fears of radiation and nuclear contamination in the wake of an earthquake and tsunami disaster.
WHY SHOULD I BE SURPRISED AT THIS NEWS WHICH IS VERY COMMON THING THAT ANY COUNTRY WOULD DO IN SUCH A SITUATION.
INSTEAD OF IMPORTING ABOVE ITEMS, THEY SHOULD’VE BEEN PRODUCING MILK, MILK PRODUCTS, VEGETABLES, FOODGRAINS, FRUITS TO MEET THEIR REQUIREMENTS RATHER THAN DEPENDING UPON SUCH A SMALL COUNTRY……..HA HA HA….Superpower.
Anyway, I am referring dictionary to see what “SELF-RELIANT ” means.
Sometimes I think stupid.......sorry I can’t help !
