    I say we give them some Buffet money then. Put those Berkshire Dollars to good use.

    Warren and Bill could easily pick up the tab and then would probably watch more carefully over how their money is spent.

    You missed the point entirely. So never mind.

    You guys?? Your post is directed to me.
    Absolutely. As well as the rest of the individuals who share your misguided point of view.

    Where is the doctor who led the military forces to bin laden? He still rots in jail while Obama gets the credit.
    He's in jail in Pakistan. What is the U.S. supposed to do about this? Go to war with them? What exactly is your point in bringing this up? Obama doesn't get all the credit. Obama gets the credit he is due. Just like other Presidents have in the past. It seems you're whining about something.

    You've entered some mysterious dark world here. Please continue the debate should you ever emerge.
    Bring that ****. We can debate Libya all day long. I already know which direction you're going to take it, likewise I know exactly how I would deconstruct your argument. But that is for another thread.
    *insert profound statement here*

    My point on this was that the package would not help alleviate the standoff concerning Crimea. Indirectly, prospects for a more prosperous Ukraine might have a small impact on the planned referendum in Crimea, but I don't think the impact would be all that significant.

    Schools in the US are being forced to cut back due to lack of funding on the plea of "fiscal responsibility", but there is ONE BILLION DOLLARS for Ukraine. Amazing.

    Think of it as just a small part of Barrack Obama's 'stimulus' plan.

    Hell, it gets worse than that. There was a trillion dollars for destroying a country in the ME.

    It's starting to look like some of the fallout from that is going to drag the whole ME down. So much money spent for accomplishing nothing but creating more chaos with the result that the world is becoming a more dangerous place. So sad.

    That would be why Gallops global poll (Dec. 2013) found the US to be the greatest threat to world peace.
