While Tennessee Burns....

The United States have sent firefighters and a Super Tanker airplane.
From the Jerusalem Post: Israel continued to battle fires in different parts of the country on Friday, with outbreaks reported in Beit Meir and Maale Hahamisha in the Jerusalem hills, near Kiryat Gat in the South of the country, next to Harashim in the Galilee, and across the wider Haifa region....
In addition to the countries to respond to calls for help on Thursday, the US, Egypt, Jordan and Azerbaijan have committed to sending help in combating the flames: Azerbaijan has dispatched a fire plane, Egypt two helicopters, and Jordan fire trucks and crews. In addition to the Super Tanker that arrived to Israel Friday evening, the US sent 50 firefighters to Israel.
Would 50 firefighters make a difference in fighting the fires in the U.S.? Probably not. Would the Super Tanker? Probably yes.
