I'm all for helping out countries in need, especialy after such massive acts by nature as the earthquake that devistated part of Pakistan and put 100's of thousands of people without a home.
But I can't help find that the timing of the first part of these funds from the US, being released a few days ago is pritty disgusting.
Just at a time when Pakistan's goverment is screaming out at the US goverment that they have no right and should never ever do anything like the bombing of last week again without their cooperation or knowledge, the US Goverment finaly releases these funds.
This, in my eyes, is a dirty bribe, even worse, its with money that was already officialy promised to pakistan.
I can't help but feel this to be a dirty way of handling a #ty situation that seems to have become reality due to another failure of intelligence, resulting in another bodycount of innocents.
