    I agree...for humanitarian aid. Humanitarian aid is extremely important. I think that most of the aid we give to Pakistan is related to the military though. I oppose that, with the exception of helping to safeguard their nuclear weapons.
    Are you coming to bed?
    I can't. This is important.

    No.

    It should be stopped because we can't afford it and they harboured Bin Laden.

    The point isn't "making us better" as some arbitrary measure set by whomever is in charge and meant to be convenient towards those ends. The generalized world support and giving away of our money is not necessary. Other people can sort out their own problems, we have things we need to focus on and fund at home. If we cannot take care of our business, what makes you think we can take care of other people's business. All foreign aid should be cut off.

    I am not pro-aid, but neither am I anti- foreign aid.
    I do not think Pakistan and many other nations have a strong central government at all; surely not as our own or the Euro nations or Japan.
    So, this criminal harboring was really done by, IMO, a rogue "state" - if a state at all - much like Afghanistan or our nation, many years ago......We must be careful when judging another.

    NO
    Foreign aid which promotes world peace and tranquility during these possibly troubling times must be continued.....

    Not while we have ballooning debt. Not when we sit and bitch about healthcare for our own people while giving billions and billions away to others, not at the cost of our own people.

    Unicorns are clearly under control. Oh wait. I wasn't suppose to say that. WHOOPS.

    In terms of national security, I cannot support a position that increases the likelihood of terrorists acquiring nukes. A billion a year is cheap insurance against that. The point is stopping threats to this country. If that means supporting a government that keeps terrorists from getting its nukes, then we should not cut funding for that.

    I don't see how cutting foreign aid that makes the US less secure in a real tangible way is good policy.

    Not while we have ballooning debt. Not when we sit and bitch about healthcare for our own people while giving billions and billions away to others, not at the cost of our own people.
    Do you know just how much it would cost in an aftermath of a terrorist nuclear attack on a large city? A billion dollars is nothing compare to that. In many ways, foreign aid is cost prevention.

    We should use some of the billions to retrofit the Coal fired Power plants the EPA wants closed. I keep saying this hoping people will pass it on.
