    About time - US suspends military aid to Pakistan, $800 million

    Nice job guys, finally figured out maybe you shouldn't be giving them money? http://news.yahoo.com/tough-line-us-...182036459.html

    The Obama administration's decision to suspend $800 million in aid to the Pakistan's military signals a tougher U.S. line with a critical but sometimes unreliable partner in the fight against terrorism.

    President Barack Obama's chief of staff, William Daley, said in a broadcast interview Sunday that the estranged relationship between the United States and Pakistan must be made "to work over time," but until it does, "we'll hold back some of the money that the American taxpayers are committed to give" to the country's powerful military forces.

    The suspension of U.S. aid, first reported by The New York Times, followed a statement last week by Adm. Mike Mullen, chairman of the U.S. Joint Chiefs of Staff, that Pakistan's security services may have sanctioned the killing of Pakistani journalist Saleem Shahzad, who wrote about infiltration of the military by extremists. His battered body was found in June.

    Now they need to cut military funding for the wars in Libya, Iraq, and Afghanistan. That will save us trillions.

    LMAO - I could have told them that the moment they decided to send aid...

    My country is pretty corrupt, and every time I go visit, I can see how the poor suffer more. It is just the brutal truth of developing nations, until the corruption leaves, that nation will stay sunk into the very $#@! it has created.

    Lets start cutting the money tax payers give to all the countries out there... Lets start with Israel... How bout we stop paying them to for the right to supply them with 'our' weapons to wage their two thousand year old war... Last time I checked the Taxpayers never agreed to aid any country... It was 'our' government that decided what we the taxpayers wanted...

    While we are at it, lets start throwing illegals out of this country like all the other countries do. if you don't apply for citizenship within a year of coming here, GTFO... If your children are born here, great they can stay, but you need to go, or Apply for Citizenship...

    Why cut funding? Just raise the debt ceiling.

    Yea, so where do we draw the line?

    Trust me, I AM ALL FOR NOT GIVING MONEY TO ALL THE $#@!ISTANS. But we still have to give money to poor countries who are:

    1. Fighting for Democracy (and mean it, not just some chump dictator/prince/terrorist politician who stands on his countries podium to declare himself a democracy so he can get free cash from america).

    2. Have already established democracy and wish to become allies and/or trade with the US.

    3. Natural disasters.

    Everyone else CAN $#@! THE $#@! OFF.

    Helping out in a natural disaster, sure. Anything else, no. At least not until we can afford to pay for our own $#@! which we aren't. When we have money to blow, we can afford global welfare. Cut it, period.

    for the most part I agree... global welfare when we cant even afford national welfare? WHY SHOULD I PAY TAXES IF IT GOES TO MY ENEMY?

    Why so the terrorists can spill into american soil? The only reason they arent here yet in huge numbers is because they hate israel, help israel = help the US. it's very simple, they act as a buffer and are a key strategic location and ally to the US in this time of global terror.

    Don't buy into that buffer crap. Israel does what Israel wants to do and the US should do what the US wants to do. Israel should handle its own $#@!.

    Question.


    Should the US supply food to countries where the majority of people are starving and cannot feed themselves without external help? aka, congo, rwanda, sudan, ethiopia, libera...

    Just answer yes or no.



    On the one hand, you supply food to countries where the people will eat it, survive longer; have more starving kids that need more food.


    And the cycle only gets worse.



    OR



    Let them die.



    OR


    Regime change, teach them how to enter the 21st century and become a part of the globe and trade/profit eventually feeding themselves.
