The definition of insanity is doing the same thing repeatedly, yet, expecting a different outcome.
Is it just me or is America’s policy of U.S. taxpayer aid to the Middle East countries that hate us, a perfect example of “insanity:..
As Anti-American riots by perpetually outraged muslims around the world increase and innocent Americans die from that violence, it seems to me that the appeasement bucks policy is not working.
I have never believed that paying off a bully is the solution to changing his behavior.
The amount of money we send adds up to billions of dollars every year.
The tab for Egypt and Libya since last year is in excess of three billion dollars. Egypt has been the second largest recipient of U.S. aid only just behind Israel. Egypt has received 1.6 billion annually for the past four years and according to the Congressional Research Service, 1.3 billion of that annual amount goes to Egypt’s Military which coincidentally failed to stop the attacks on our embassy and the murders of our America’s there.
The State Department has allocated more than 300 million dollars for Tunisia since early 2011.
In Sudan the United States spent more than a half million dollars this year.
We have given Libya more than $200 million — including $89 million in humanitarian assistance and $25 million from the Defense Department, according to Congressional Research Service.
I say, CUT THE PURSE STRINGS. America has its own financial issues to deal with. Why send money we do not have to our enemies? Continuing to send money, especially after the murders of our people, is rewarding this savage behavior.
Senator Rand Paul, R-Ky., said such action should be taken in Egypt, Libya, Yemen and Pakistan. And he has proposed an amendment that would require those countries to help in the investigations of the attacks on U.S. embassies in Yemen and Egypt and the consulate in Benghazi.
While I appreciate the Senator’s efforts, I disagree. Expecting any of the mentioned governments to help with the investigations is like teaming up and sharing intelligence with the fox and asking him to help us guard the hen house.
Seriously, I do not trust these people who have clearly demonstrated a lack loyalty to America.
Apparently our leaders do not “get it” that Islam can not and will not peacefully co-exist with any other religion or government that does not govern by Sharia.
Guess what? We are a Constitutional Republic. There is no room for Sharia Law in this country. Not now… Not EVER.
So, my solution… Cut the aid. Cut the appeasement.. and Cut the pretense of friendship. Cut the oil ties and drill for our own oil. Take care of our own needs and the needs of the nations that are true ally’s. Stand up to the bullies and show them America will no longer be used and abused.
Give me a President and Congress that understands American Pride and in return, we will once again rise to the position of World Super Power that we once were.
Praying for that day to come and it will not come soon enough.
