Why Are We Still Sending Foreign Aid to These Islamic Nations When They Vote Against Us at the UN?

Our government thinks that if we give money to nations that want to destroy us that somehow they’ll learn to like us. Don’t believe it. They only think we’re stupid and weak. The money we’ve sent to these backward and violent regimes have only been used to prop up dictators who keep most of the money for themselves. When their rulers are finally overthrown, the people blame the United States for keeping the tyrants in power.

How well did our foreign aid do in Egypt? How is it doing in Syria with the slaughter of innocent children? All foreign aid should be stopped. If wealth redistribution is hurting the poor in the United States, why do we think it's going to help in other nations? What we should be exporting is a worldview that -- moral, religious, economic, and political -- that will help these nations transform themselves.

How much support have the following regimes given the United States when it came time for them to vote at the United Nations? (Following this voting list, take a look at how much foreign aid money we dole out to some of these nations):

  1. Kuwait votes against the United States 67% of the time
  2. Qatar votes against the United States 67% of the time
  3. Morocco votes against the United States 70% of the time
  4. United Arab Emirates votes against the United States 70% of the time.
  5. Jordan votes against the United States 71% of the time.
  6. Tunisia votes against the United States 71% of the time.
  7. Saudi Arabia votes against the United States 73% of the time.
  8. Yemen votes against the United States 74% of the time.
  9. Algeria votes against the United States 74% of the time.
  10. Oman votes against the United States 74%of the time.
  11. Sudan votes against the United States 75% of the time.
  12. Pakistan votes against the United States 75% of the time.
  13. Libya votes against the United States 76% of the time.
  14. Egypt votes against the United States 79% of the time.
  15. Lebanon votes against the United States 80% of the time.
  16. India votes against the United States 81% of the time.
  17. Syria votes against the United States 84% of the time.
  18. Mauritania votes against the United States 87% of the time.

United States Foreign Aid to those that hate us:

  1. Egypt, after voting 79% of the time against the United States, still receives $2,000,000,000 annually in US Foreign Aid.
  2. Jordan votes 71% against the United States and receives $192,814,000 annually in US Foreign Aid.
  3. Pakistan votes 75% against the United States and receives $6,721,000,000 annually in US Foreign Aid.
  4. India votes 81% against the United States and receives $143,699,000 annually in Foreign Aid.

  • AppraisHer

    Time has long passed to get rid of these international welfare programs. The US, Canada and the UK are the only countries that try to buy friends by draining their resources. Cut off all aid to our enemies (that this administration thinks are our friends) and use our money to protect us. Let Russia, China and Iran go broke doing it. On another note, why is our military still defending Italy, Spain, France and Japan? The UN was supposed to be the world's police force, but it always falls on us, so now it's time for a professional mercinary force, paid comensurate with their skills by those being protected, freeing up our military so they can do what they are supposed to do...protect America and Americans. Bring everybody home!!!

      yea that's right the U.N. is susposed to be the world's police action but it seems that the good old reliable U.S.A. always steps up and is handed control so our sons an daughters are the ones putting their lifes on the linenot to many others while they kill OUR children we susport probaly 90% of the cost and 70% of the casualty's with our sons an daghters

  • Daniel Clamage

      Israel is doing much better than the US. Tel Aviv makes Los Angeles look sick...they are far better than us. Why not keep the money and rebuild or improve some of our states? We need to stop all foreign aid...they laugh at us because we are so stupid and draining our own banks to help them.

  • http://www.libertyboard.com ForFreedom

    Ron Paul has been asking this question for 30 years! We give away trillions in foreign aide and then wonder why we're trillions in debt. And yet we're apparently about to nominate someone who just wants to cut around the edges a little bit! It's really getting old that Paul is ridiculed and then later everyone acts like what he had said was obvious without ever giving him the credit. Our government seems to get off on giving our money away and then comes back to us for more when they don't have any left. They're idiots!

    • Hilly

      Not only do they give our money away, they borrow 40% of all the money that we give away!

    • Leon Taylor

      YES! but they are rich idiots. FILTHY RICH IDIOTS! The only way to turn this country around is for many many people and it will have to be the middle class! to stop going and going and spending and spending and purchasing things that they can do without, like new whatever. Whether it be a new car or a pair of shoes. Everyone needs to just stop it and stay at home for a long period and then they would wake up because all the money would stop. But that's the only way. People keep spending and spending on things they want but could do without. We have become spoiled materialistic impatient brats.

  • http://politicalrevelation.com Dan W Rykard

    The reason is our President is a Muslium and he is giving them as much money as he can.The Media has not done any investigation on this matter or his eligibility to even run for President, I am 54 and I never thought I would see our Media so far to the left, except Fox news.

  • fideux

    What we need to do is immediately cut off all funding worldwide, close all of our bases overseas, bring our soldiers home and using the money we used to dole out to unappreciative nations, use the money and military personal to build and rebuild our existing infrastructure. We have everything we need right here in the United States. Also, send everyone that is presently illegally in this country to their homeland along with every attorney and environmentalist and bar them (pardon the pun) from returning. Those three groups are ruining our nation!

  • PDavis

    We are sending money to the islamic nations because we have a muslim in the White House. End of story!

    • Joseph

      Agree. Coincidentally (lol) Islamic's have always stated along with their hatred for America that one if not the best way to take down America(and that is what they want) is to destroy them from within ie....ruin them financially. Let's look at how well our faithful muslin in chief is doing that.

  • Margaret

    Through the bail out for AIG money is being sent to Islam also. Isn't that sweet - foreign aid is not enough for them - we have to "donate" another $153 million tax payer dollars through the bail out?

    Write your senators and protest loudly! This will not change until they get millions of protests to match our dollars they are giving away.

    No matter what party affiliation you have let them know you will vote against them if this continues. We are the only ones that can take America back while we still have a voice to do it with.

    Great question! I will say that this administration is not all at fault. Sending money to those muslim haters of America has been and continues to be wrong. I certainly do not want any of my money going there! Let's hope we get a new administration in November and get that stopped as well as a number of other things!

  • Chief Magz

    "Why are we sending..." One word OIL ! Therefore let us immediately begin agressive oil exploration in America , approve the Canadian Pipe line, drill for natural gas,drill for coal, harness the wind power and put a full court press on our energy game . Let the Middle East drown in their own oil mega millions. Then cut off their funds and put a halt on the dangerous cuts proposed for our military by transferring these billions of dollars from the State Dept to the Department of Defense. I would love the President and Gov. Romney talk about this during the campaign.

  • David Ronske

    I agree---Why do we send these 'foreign countries' (the ones that hate us in particular) all this foreign aid ?? Stop this foolish 'foreign aid'--use this money in the United States ! It is said that 1 out of 5 children here in the states go to bed hungry-- WHY ? Use the money here !!

  • Dawn

    When will the govt. wake up and help Americans?
    This is absolute hog wash giving our money to
    the countries that hate us, are laughing at our
    stupidness etc. Stop the insanity and help America
    restore places that have been affected by tornadoes,
    hurricanes,flooding, wild fires etc. Let us rebuild what
    we once had as a nation under GOD.A country that helps
    it's own, and no handouts to other countries. I'm sure they
    can come up with their own plans. So frustrating!

    This is why we need to vote for Ron Paul he is the only one that wants to stop giveing money to other countrys and bring are soilders home He has been saying this all along Romny wants to bulid a bigger army and you dont here him say he will stop giveing are money away to other countrys Let these other countrys do for them selves You dont see any of them trying to help us when something happens I will vote for Ron Paul if you want are country to grow again we need Ron Paul not the same old crap

  • REBEL

    Heck this is easy to answer. This Adminstration is busy handing over our nation to the UN, we are dependent on foreign oil and are restricted from using our own, and last - but not least - just look at the clown who is ILLEGALLY holding office in the WH. He praises Muslims while insulting and attacking Christians. Its quite clear to me that he is selling us down the river - on purpose.

    • Bob N.

      American Patriot must be a muslem to call Israel terrorist and trouble makers. The Israeli's have done nothing but try to protect themselves from being destroyed by muslem terrorist. It's muslems that are shooting rockets into Israel daily, not the other way around. It is muslems sending suicide bombers and car bombs into Israel and it's muslems breaking into Israeli homes and slaughtering innocent families. Israel has always been a friend to the United States and a trusted ally but Obama is going to change that with his support for Israel's enemies and turning his back on Israel. All foreign aid to those countries that vote against us should be stopped and only given to Israel and the other countries that back us.

    “Why Are We Still Sending Foreign Aid to These Islamic Nations When They Vote Against Us at the UN?”

    Could it be because our President's Foreign Policy regarding Muslim Nations are totally devoid of National Interest and common sense???

  • joe carr sr

    Giving money to these Islamic people is the same as giving to a person with a sign stating I work for food and when he gets the money he goes out and buys booze. He lied and they lie. You cannot deal with people that lie. A person who lies is capable of doing anything.No trust is possible because you have to earn trust and they have not earned any.Think.

    The answer to that is really quite simple! Who is in the White House and what is he? Dirty Diaper Head Obama has done everything in his power to aid and assist all Islamic nations and anyone else who is anti-American.

  • Doodlebug

    I don't understand why we stay in the UN and we sure as ___ shouldn't be giving money to any of these countries. If we stopped sending this still hate us money it wouldn't make a very big dent in the deficit but it sure would be a start. Don't we pay the most to belong to the UN and isn't this administration hell bent on giving the UN universal control? Get out and tell them to get out of America!

  • jiluvjen

  • Sam

    Get ready, if Obama has his way we will be sending 50 percent of our offshore oil and gas royalty income to the UN to spread amoung the 176 nations that hate us. That is just a part of the LOST treaty that he has signed and is seeking Senate ratification. If ratified, this giveaway will amount to Trillions of future income dollars and is IRREVOKABLE. Let your Senators know that you are opposed to this giveaway. It is coming up for ratification in the next few weeks.

  • jim in TX

    the answer is easy #1 resign from the UN and cut off all funds to them
    #2 order ALL UN diplomats"SPY'S" to leave the United States issue an order that
    they have 4 hours to pack their trash and be on a plane to some other country.
    # 3 Recall All US diplomats from every Nation close All US Embassy's and set Explosives to detonate as soon as the last person is out destroy everything.
    #4 Recall ALL US Military Personnel from every foreign country shut down all
    bases load everything that is Ours up Don't leave any buildings standing.
    #5 Cut off all Aid to ALL nations.
    #6 Use the Military Personnel along the Mexican Border and let it be known that
    they have Shoot on sight orders to any one attempting to smuggle contraband into
    the US.
    It is time to Stop being the whipping board for a bunch of ungrateful scum bags

    Here is another suggestion whenever OPEC decides to raise the price
    of oil the price for wheat will be raised to an equivalent price.
    they want $150.00 a barrel foe oil Wheat is $150.00 a bushel maybe
    they can figure out how to make bread from oil and sand.

    You sound like a typical Muslim for refering to israel as terrorists.

    Where did you get that rubbish of 13 Billion in aid to Israel.?

    Whatever aid Israel does get, they pay back in technology and other research

    I suppose you want USA to carry on supporting the Islamic murderers?

  • Nudge

    So this is all due to the Muslim anarchist. Y guys are truly amazing. ever see the Bushies dancing with the sheiks? And all that money to Isrrael so the Reps can get them some sweet Jew money. Egypt dictator got military training under Reps. But go blame it on a black Muslim. He's also just like Hitler. Or Karl Marx or really Chairman Mao. Y guys do get a bit confused. Maybe y had to go to those commie lib schools where they don't teach anything.

    • Mark

      “I will stand with the Muslims should the political winds shift in an ugly direction.” Obama in his book "Audacity of Hope". And that aid that goes to Israel is used to buy American products, including aerospace and defense related items. Also, Israel makes much of the avionics for the F18 and other fighter planes. Something you obviously don't know about Islam is that you cannot renounce your Muslim belief (apostate) without incurring a fatwa (death sentence) on your life. Obama was born and raised a Muslim because in their faith, you are the religion of your father. Why do you think Obama is still alive if he left the Islamic faith to convert to Christianity? Lastly, I wouldn't trust a Muslim in ANY position of power in America; we've seen how them function in the military and other institutions. Sorry you can't see it, but at least I'm glad to know that your types are in the extreme minority.

  • raygun

    It's time to cut the "wellfare" to these foes. If money talks, as so many say, let the US of A speak loud and clear "we're as mad as hell, we don't like your CRAP and we aren't going to put up with it any more". If it were left up to me and my Tea Party friends, the money would have stopped long time ago.

  • http://N/A DirtyDaveyDownEast

    Why? Because Obama is buyin' Muslim support. Tha 'bama bum is doin' everythin' he can ta destroy AMERICA, tha Greatest Nation Evah, and tha money he sends ta our enimies both buys tha support of those enimies and helps bankrupt AMERICA. What our Ilamic enimies fail ta undahstand is; just as tha 'bama bum will always throw AMERICA undah tha bus for Islim, he will one day throw Islam undah tha bus for tha New World Ordah, in which he intends to be at tha top of tha peckin' ordah.

    Tha 'bama bum has nevere actually claimed to be a Muslim, but has stated his belief in collective salvation. A man's religion is not as he says, but as he does. A man's religion is as he is.

    There will be no room in tha New World Ordah for god by any name. Man do tha Muslims have a rude awakenin' commin' ! ! !

    First of all, everyone in Washington needs replaced, if nothing else, term limits of two terms. Second, Obama needs to be voted out of office and the Constitution needs to be upheld. Third, the Executive orders put in place by Obama needs to be revoked.
    Fourth, instead of sending all our money and other resources over seas, we need to be taking care of our own...people living in poverty, children going to bed hungry, veterans need care and assistance after giving life and limb(s) for our freedoms.Fifth, Congress needs to get "balls" enough to stop spending money on their oun pet projects and develop a budget to get this Country back on track, something they have failed to do in 2 administrations.

      I agree,Craig. Right here in our own community, we have several new motels that are thriving because of their location. In each one, you have some "owner/operator" who is a citizen of the middle east. One of them told my son that he got his money to buy the franchise from the government in the form of a special grant; after finding that out, he quit working there (pay was right at minimum wage--and it came as a 'helping stipend' from the government, not from the motel profits as it should have). What American citizen would get that kind of assistance to start a franchised business? Be prepared? It's already taken place. Oh, and by the way, the government also helps these people to purchase homes--believe it!

  • Wade

    While I don't doubt these numbers showing that we give far too much money to nations that oppose us in many areas, it is rather difficult to use this information in a debate with a liberal because they want to know where we get this info. Referencing a conservative web site does not help. My suggestion to the author of this article is to list the sources of your information. This is just the responsible, truthful reporting and the right thing to do.

    • CJM2

      There is a wealth of information to the Congressional Record that is available to any citizen--I think it includes the amount of monies sent to these countries. The author didn't go far enough--African countries do not like the US either, yet the receive large sums of money from the US; there are others, of course, but these are just eye-openers. In the future, monetary aid should be based on actual need (within reason) and their relationship with the US. Unfortunately, we have members of congress and the current administration who refuse to view the situtation realistically.

  • Ronald Marlar

    Of course Obama is doing all he can to support his Muslim brothers and sisters with our taxpayer dollars. In some cases he is paying back illegal contributions to his 2004 through 2008 and ongoing campaign, and hoping for more contributions for his 2012 run. He must be stopped by any and all legal means possible, even before November. He is taking all of us and our country down, us and our country that he, Michelle and their henchmen and women hate. He has even put Islamists, Communists and Socialists in key positions in his regime - our former national government.

  • Grayfox

    We send money over there because we are generously stupid.

  • seshan subramanian

    You need to get your facts straight - India is not an Islamic nation. And India never asks for money from the US.It is Islamic countries like Pakistan who will take money from anyone and stab them in the back. We can never understand how the U.S.A has been foolishly feeding the ISLAMIC republic of Pakistan which is also a terrorist country with about 100's of billions of dollars in aid for the past 50 years.

  • Brian

    Why are we still sending money to all of these countries?? Simple--we are stupid and elect stupid people to important offices. Demand that your representatives eliminate all foreign aid, or at least eliminate ten percent of it each year for the next five to ten years, and I will guarantee that if it passes those countries who do not seem to like us will quickly be bellying up and begging us to help them.

  • Martifr

    We shouldn't be giving a dime to ANY of these countries. WHY is India getting so much foreign aid when we farm out so much work to them? We should cut our aid and stop immigration from these countries as well.

  • Eagle

    Take into account that we have been doing this for almost a century now, at least a good 70yrs. The overall reason was too thwart them from leaning towards the communists, well that isn't a problem now. Then you have large corporations that do business with those nations and that is where the Import/Export bank comes in. So these corporations need the US Government to sweeten the pot so they will do business with all of these countries. Mainly aircraft and military manufactures. Boeing, Lockheed, GM, Cheysler, Ford all have diversified in that area. I think thomas jefferson has rolled over in his grave a hundred times since he sent troops to Tripoli when they tried to blackmail the new country. In my opinion we need to send more missles and less cash......... launced from jets.

    • Rich

      Truly said. Now we should get our sailors and soldiers remains back to our country from the ill-kept and mostly neglected cemetery outside of Tripoli.

    PUT ME IN CHARGE . . .

    Put me in charge of food stamps. I'd get rid of Lone Star cards; no cash for Ding Dongs or Ho Ho's, just money for 50-pound bags of rice and beans, blocks of cheese and away. If you want steak and frozen pizza, then get a job.

    Put me in charge of Medicaid. The first thing I'd do is to get women Norplant birth control implants or tubal legations. Then, we'll test recipients for drugs, alcohol, and nicotine. If you want to reproduce or use
    drugs, alcohol, or smoke, then get a job.

    Put me in charge of government housing. Ever live in a military barracks? You will maintain our property in a clean and good state of repair.
    Your " home" will be subject to inspections anytime and possessions will be inventoried. If you want a plasma TV or Xbox 360, then get a job and your own place.

    In addition, you will either present a check stub from a job each week or you will report to a"government" job. It may be cleaning the roadways of trash, painting and repairing public housing, whatever we find for you. We
    will sell your 22 inch rims and low profile tires and your blasting stereo and speakers and put that money toward the "common good.."

    Before you write that I've violated someone's rights, realize that all of the above is voluntary. If you want our money, accept our rules. Before you say that this would be "demeaning" and ruin their "self esteem," consider that it wasn't that long ago that taking someone else's money for doing absolutely nothing was demeaning and lowered self esteem.

    If we are expected to pay for other people's mistakes we should at least attempt to make them learn from their bad choices. The current system rewards them for continuing to make bad choices.

    AND While you are on Gov't subsistence, you no longer can VOTE! Yes, that is correct. For you to vote would be a conflict of interest. You will voluntarily remove yourself from voting while you are receiving a Gov't
    welfare check. If you want to vote, then get a job.

    Now, if you have the guts - PASS IT ON...
    I WOULD REALLY LIKE TO GET THIS BACK, IF EVERYONE SENDS IT, I WILL GET OVER 220 BACK!!! I WOULD KNOW YOU SENT IT ON!!!

    Who sends foreign aid to America?

    No, we are paying Republicans to cause economic downturn in this country. The GOP are the new terrorists and the Tea Party are their suicide bombers.

      I agree.

    • James

      I also agree. The deregulation of the financial industry led to the meltdown of 2008, and not a single rich SOB is in jail because of it. The SEC just dropped its case against the executive of Lehman Brothers--wonder how much of a payoff was involved there?

      Neither the Dems nor the GOP gives a flip about the average American. Jobs are still going overseas. Older workers are being pushed out of their jobs so companies can hire younger ones at a fraction of the older workers' wages. Neither party gives two cents about enforcing age discrimination laws. Both parties are filled with elitists who haven't been inside a grocery store in a decade.

      Simply put, the GOP caters to the rich, while the Dems cater to all of the minority groups. The average person who is not a member of a visible minority is completely left out.

    time to stop sending taxpayer money to those countries that want us dead, or at minimal can't work with us.

    Let them kill each other off, and let the UN deal with them, sort of like how the UN worked with Rwanda, and other African killing fields.

    But seems the only thing the UN is good for is putting those 2 bit dictators and despots in charge of human rights commissions where they can tear down the US for wanting people to have ID before voting.

    Aint that a hoot.

    You can blame the Republicans all you want but take a step back and look at this President. Deficit is higher than ever before, this President has spent more than All of the Presidents COMBINED!! He has basically stopped jobs coming into the United States. Vetoed 1.7% increase in pay to our military. Cut benefits to our Veterans. 25,000,000 unemployed; 46,000,000 on government assistance. Can't deny the amount of foreign aid that he approves. BILLIONS....And yet, he vacations and plays with celebrities!!!!!!

    You have got to be kidding! Kick the idiots out who are giving the money to people who really don't care about us. We need to dump all the fools who think we are the money tree for all! Time is wasting when there are people here that need help and would appreciate it!!!!! Our government needs to be revamped! Take some of the things congress get for free, like insurance and retirement for being in office for maybe 2 years. Wouldn't that be nice for all who live here to enjoy the fruits of the Senate and Congress and President!!! Wow, we would all be doing better and those countries that can't stand us and take the money would be without!

  • Robert

    NO FOreign aid to any country and welfare to only deserving citizens.Drug tests required.No multiple births on welfare. One and done.. No Illegals for any reason.. send them to their country for medical or welfare hand outs..

    • Taydwa

      I agree. All of this paying other countries who hate us is crazy!! Stop it now. We must have voter ID's. Drug tests should be required for welfare recipients. Treat illegals like the law breakers they are - get them out, and certainly don't give them any benefits. That is like a reward for breaking our laws. English is the official language of this country - don't give me choices on the phone. Legal immigrants can adapt to the culture of their newly chosen country - we will not adapt to them.

    • http://twitter.com/inspiredpolitic Jared Reynolds

      The drug test in order to receive welfare turned out to be an epic failure and just costs the government more money. In the end, the vast majority of people were passing the drug tests and the government was being forced to foot the bill. I guess it proved a lot of the conservative pundits wrong. Turns out that those that are on government aid aren't actually all on drugs as well. In fact, very few of them are.

  • EER

    The answer is simple: the president is a closet Muslim.

  • Shavager

    OWEbumbler is NOT a closet muslim, HE IS A MUSLIM, he was born muslim to a muslim/communist father who advocated communist ideals, he was raised a muslim in muslim schools in Indonesia by a muslim stepfather Loelo Soetoro, he frequently extols the muslim "virtues", has prayed with muslims, held muslim entrepreneur workshops at the WHouse even as he's refused to attend National Day of Prayer services, had the image of Jesus Christ covered at a speech in Georgetown. He has even championed the muslim overthrow of mid-eastern countries claiming the "Arab spring" is about democracy when it's about a MUSLIM CALIPHATE or "new world government" of muslim religion. Even his former "pastor" Jeremiah Wright believes he's a muslim. ACTIONS SPEAK LOUDER THAN WORDS, he's spending BILLIONS of taxpayer dollars in muslim countries and for Islamic terror groups HAMAS and Hezbollah while he's turned his back on allies Canada, England,Israel.

    • http://twitter.com/inspiredpolitic Jared Reynolds

      When did Obama turn his back on these allies I wonder? All presidents have always tried to open up the doors of the White House to various groups in order to promote dialogue between different groups. Sounds like good politics to me. Oh, and the thing about covering the image of Jesus Christ at Georgetown has been debunked over and over again. Sounds like you are just convincing yourself of what you already believe. I recommend trying to do a little bit of research that involves keeping biases out of the picture. Just a recommendation though, I'm sure you wouldn't dare try it.

  • http://www.survivingurbancrisis.com Silas Longshot

    Why, indeed. Could it be because of the muslim favoritism we suffer under? Growing up in Indonesia may have something to do with that, along with radicals and commies in college.

  • DJ Ski

    The sad thing is .... not only do these countries hate us AND treat us like stupid fools; they've come to view these payments to them from the United States as an ENTITLEMENT that they are now FOREVER owed. The second that even a fraction of the money stops flowing in (not to mention if the money was stopped altogether), the hate, venom, and violence will only get STRONGER! The United States supports countries like a family of spoiled, rotten, mean brats; and they will never be able to kick them out of the nest.

From his first day in office, he was doing things that were patently anti-American...like....making his first call from the Oval Office to the terrorist leader of Hamas. And  he's been handing out our money like penny candy on Halloween  to the Palestinians by EO ( expediting its transfer and the  immigration of thousands of them).

      He's one Muslim obeying the Quran in helping other Muslims...and destroying America, bit by bit, from the inside, like a  cancer. 

      In November...WE MUST cut that cancer out, including its metastatic tentacles that have spread throughout the House and the Senate.  Radical surgery is required if America is to survive.

      I hope that what you guys are really suggesting is that we stop bombing all of these countries. I mean, haven't we kill 10,000 times the innocent civilians than ever died on 9/11 in just out past two wars. Maybe it's actually the guys with the camouflaged helmets on their heads that are creating all of the problems abroad.

      • Viiit

        No, sir.
        3,000 killed in 9/11 and 3,000*10,000=30,000,000
        And NO, we have not killed 30 million innocent civilians.
        Not even close.
        We have killed very few civilians compared to how may civilians are killed by the musloids themselves.

        The musloid fascist kill their own people by the tens of thousands.
        In Iraq, for each civilian killed by the Americans there is 100 killed by the musloids.

        In Syria musloids killed 120,000 in just 2 years.
        In Afghanistan musloids, partially with the Soviet help, have killed close to 3 million of each other over the last 30 years.
        American contribution is very small in comparison.

        So stuff your anti-American propaganda lies up your behind.

    • Viiit

      Just stop paying for our oil.
      Instead use our military might to rightfully claim our oil that happened to be on some land where the mosloids happened to run their sheep and camels.

      Just take them, and f... the musloids. They did not make the oil. And the land was not originally their either. They stole it.

  • Screeminmeeme

    There's no other word for it.....it's INSANE. I've been saying this for years...have  called and written my Congressmen about it to no avail.  Only the INSANE APPEASER would ever expect his  enemies to be placated and influenced by money and become his BFF.  

    Just ask any kid in a schoolyard and they'll tell you that if you pay a bully, they'll only demand more money. And such is the case in the Middle East.  

    And just imagine how all that money could help pay for the rebuilding of  our infrastructure and repair  the urban decay.

    We are ABJECT FOOLS ...INSANE FOOLS....if we continue doing this. 

  • kmeck

    Here is what Speaker of the House had to say in response to these facts:
    "Thank you for contacting me regarding foreign aid.  It is good to hear from you.
     
    Foreign assistance is a fundamental component of the international affairs budget and is viewed by many as an essential instrument of U.S. foreign policy.  Since the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001, foreign aid has increasingly been associated with national security policy.  U.S. foreign aid policy has developed around three primary rationales: national security, commercial interests, and humanitarian concerns.  These broad rationales are the basis for the myriad objectives of U.S. assistance, including promoting economic growth, reducing poverty, improving governance, expanding access to health care and education, promoting stability in conflictive regions, promoting human rights, strengthening allies, and curbing illicit drug production and trafficking.
     
    The final Fiscal Year 2012 (FY12) appropriations bill, signed into law by President Obama on December 23, 2011, provides $42.1 billion for the State Department and foreign operations.  This is more than $6 billion below the FY11 enacted level and $8.7 billion below the president's request.  The legislation also provides $11.2 billion in funding for civilian efforts related to Overseas Contingency Operations/Global War on Terrorism (OCO/GWOT).   Specifically, the bill contains funding for the State Department and related agencies; international security assistance, including support for Israel; the United States Agency for International Development (USAID); and bilateral and multilateral assistance.  Reductions are taken in low-priority programs and countries, and support is continued for high-priority programs like global health and child survival, democracy promotion, and the Millennium Challenge Corporation.  Furthermore, the bill includes $11.2 billion in OCO/GWOT funding for the extraordinary and temporary costs related to programs and operations in Iraq, Afghanistan, and Pakistan; counterterrorism activities; and refugee and humanitarian assistance in conflict zones.  In Iraq, funds will support security forces and police training previously funded by the Department of Defense.  Funds will also support civilian programs in support of the military's counterinsurgency efforts in Afghanistan.  Importantly, the bill also includes significant reforms to improve the oversight and management of precious tax dollars, and supports important policy provisions to ensure the respect for life around the world. 
     
    The amount of money that should be spent on any program funded by the federal government needs to be based on merit and a careful balancing of priorities.  With a national debt more than $15 trillion, the fact is we're broke, and we must reexamine how we use American taxpayers' money. It is my hope that House Republicans and the president can work together to balance appropriate funding for critical national priorities with the need to responsibly reduce spending, and set us on a path to pay down the national debt while ensuring our national security."

    I don't know why he's working so hard to "work together" - he's the only one -- the President sure ain't.

    I agree with you that we should stop sending foreign aid to this country, but I'm not sure you totally understand the justification behind why we are sending this aid. Many of these Islamic countries crack down on terrorists and we often feel that the current government is much more stable and favorable to our interests than one that would be democratically elected. We have propped up many horrible governments in the interests of stability. From many we get great oil deals, prime military bases, and will trade all of that money for even just one key vote when we need it- forget the 100 that we lose that don't really matter. It's politics, just like in the US. I'm not sure it's really comparable to giving money to the poor here, that rarely gets us a key vote in the UN when we need it or a prime air force base. I'm all about letting democracy take its natural course, but don't complain when there is probably massive instability for a few decades.
