Therefore yer honorables... just in case caucus is sitting in a state of mental vapor lock from Harpo having told you to shut up so many times you've forgotten you can still think for yourselves while ducking reports, here's what to do:
Japan has the skills, the talent, the human vitality, the organization, the ability, the effort, the energy *and* the money to do *anything*, including recover from a seriously wicked earthquake.
Keep in mind, this is the only country in the world to have been nuked - twice - and had been so bombed by conventional forces that they say even if she hadn't surrendered after Hiroshima and Nagasaki, that ordinary bombing missions would have run out of targets by the end of September (she surrendered on the 2nd September, so she was just a month away from being bombed into rubble even before it was decided to use the nukes).
The only thing the Japanese archipelago lacks is basic raw materials.
Send her iron ore (you don't have to refine it into iron or steel), coal, raw asphalt, logs (might as well do something with all those trees doomed to die from pine beetles) bauxite, copper ore, tin ore, lead ore, zinc ore, unrefined potash, cotton... *anything*... and of course, some raw crude oil.
Keep it simple. Just scoop as much of any rock that looks like it has a colour indicative of the presence of a metal and dump it in front of them.
She'll take it from there, and will have everything rebuilt in less than a year thank you very much.
It's the cheapest way to help them, and frankly, her economy's been in the doldrums lately.
Most of them - the survivors anyway - will be happy to have something to do.
