    'Blocking Aid'!?

    We never should have sent any aid in the first place.

    Aid should have been blocked regardless of who is in power there. It's absoultely crazy all the aid we send overseas and then have a government complaining that our debt is too high.

    Don't look it up:

    How much money do you think we spend in aid?

    Well, yes it was a coup, and yes, it was anti-democratic. But it was still the right thing to do.

    Democracy cannot be allowed to become a suicide pact.
    I have to agree. Morsi was grabbing too much power too quickly and didn't use it to help his people. This outcome was a foregone conclusion.
    If you notice something good in yourself, give credit to God, not to yourself, but be certain the evil you commit is always your own and yours to acknowledge.

    Sure thing.

    I think whatever excuse we have to stop giving a country - any country - aid is good enough.
