Just as stupid is that the US has refused Russia's help with the wildfires in the Southwest. Russia has offered to lend the United States two of its IL-76 tanker aircraft by far the largest in the world. A single IL-76 tanker can drop 11,000 gallons of water in one trip - about four times as much as the largest tanker in the U.S. arsenal, the C-130 Hercules. It's too sad when National Pride is more important than human life.
