Spending my hard earned tax $$$$ on people who may or may not be lazy
US President Barak Obama has just laid out his new strategy for Afghanistan and Pakistan. He says he wants to build a new people-centered and development-centered relationship with Pakistan. Including through a commitment to invest 1.5 billion dollars per year for next five years in development initiatives in Pakistan.
WASHINGTON – The Obama administration plans to seek as much as $3 billion over the next five years to train and equip Pakistan's military, and is considering sending 10,000 more troops to battle the Taliban in Afghanistan, defense officials said Wednesday.
Hey Mr. President, how about you try to fix the problems in your own country before you try to "save" the planet?
There you go..more funds to extremist. Well, this is what happen till date. When Pakistan has no stable government who is going to take the responsibility for proper usage of these funds? politicians? their army? or their ultimate extremist?
because of such funds Pakistan built nuclear weapons and ultimately other countries worry just because these weapons could be accessible to the Pakistan extremist
