Yes: Weapons sent to Muslim leaders will someday kill Americans; No: Financial aid gives U.S. leverage with Islamists in middle east
We don't have enough money for ourselves why are funding anybody else
especially the Muslim Brotherhood? Let's pay down our debt let's keep
the promise of Social Security.This should be basic common sense do
our political leaders have any?
Maverick,What's a Reagan Country?
It's tragic and comical how liberals keep avoiding responsibility for being
in power and blame everything on Reagan and Bush. There's little wonder why
the country is in chaos.
This has always been a tough decision for US Politicians (despite all the
coolaid drinking partisan rhetoric-mongers who like to pretend it's just a
Republican problem). Fact is... it's not just Republican
problem. It's not even a recent problem (we've had it all my
lifetime). And it doesn't only apply to Muslim Nations. We have been
faced with this decision many times in our history.You have to weigh
the moral dilemma of funding a country lead by people hostile to the USA (we had
the same decision in North Korea, Cuba, Laos, some South American countries
throughout my lifetime). We usually end up continuing funding for humanitarian
reasons and in order to keep at least SOME influence there.But just
keep play politics with it... if that's all you can do.
Maybe the two factions of Islam will destroy each other. They certainly do not
need our help? Do they buil anything or produce anything? What do they do with
the money? The teachings of the Koran will never allow them to be brothers with
us or each other. What a sad commentary on a once great culture.
Absolutely. We should stop assisting Pakistan as well.
YesBarack cares more about helping terrorist Muslims than Americans
Barack, stop giving my money to terrorist Muslim brotherhood.
Reagan countries just like the funding for Reagan phones needs to end.We don't have enough money for firefighters and teachers yet we do have
enough money for Reagan countries? Unbelievable!
So we support the muslim brotherhood with weapons/planes and I understand we are
sending riot police to control what? The muslim brotherhood? The citizens
protesting? Have they been told to shoot? Who are they shooting at?This is
our tax money, or more correctly, this is the money we are borrowing from the
Chinese. Did we help the students protesting in Iran against a terrible regime?
NO! The students thought we were with them, apparently not!We need to let
Eggpt take care of this. Even if morsi is one of 0bama's friends. I
noticed in one of the pictures the police are in tanks, but are not fighting the
I'm not sure how this fits with the 'religion is under attack all over
the world' mantra currently popping up on these pages.
Regardless of your opinion it should be made clear that weapons production is a
drain on the economy. It does not help our bottom line. Obviously we need our
military, but it takes money out of the private sector unless some foreign
country is buying the weapons from us.
Gee, I don't know...Should we stop funding something
Republicans started back with Ronald Reagan, continued with GHW Bush,Clinton scaled back but never the less continued,and GW Bush increased
to statospheric new heights?
