Foreign aid

By From page A5 | September 04, 2013

EDITOR:

At present, Washington is trying to decide what to do with billions in foreign aid designated for Egypt because of the current turmoil they are in. Somehow I find it interesting that a country, trillions in debt, can send billions of foreign aid to countries that basically hate us.

However it is only the citizens who hate us. They do not get any of the aid as it essentially all goes to the leaders and influential citizens who are basically already rich. Why does America think it has to throw money through out the world to gain respect we never get? That has not done any good in the past so why continue the stupidity?

Let the Arab nations fight amongst themselves. The demise of radically demented men will do more good than any American dollar can do.
