U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton sought Monday to convince skeptical Pakistanis that American interest in their country extends beyond the fight against Islamist militants by announcing a raft of new aid projects worth $500 million.

The projects, which included new dams for badly needed electricity and hospitals, are part of a $7.5 billion aid effort to win over Pakistanis suspicious about Washington's goals here and in neighboring Afghanistan

Here we go again....
Billions of dollars that could instead go to american cities and law enforcement initiatives and of course unemployement.

But no, let's give the money to the same country that we have given to before but instead of using that money for what it was intended for it was used to fund military strenght against India and also fund terrroism.

Thefore the U.S. was in fact supporting terroism, and now they chose to do the same in a very critical time.

This is ridiculous!
And the money will not even be used for what it's saying it will be used for... IT NEVER IS!!!!!!

Clearly, Pakistan has a upper hand in the relationship with the US! Nothing else explains US support of Pakistan given Pakistan's track record!!

this pisses me off to no end.

time and time agian we are reminded of how broke we are.

for the first time in 30 years the ederly and disabled will not be getting a cost of living raise and prices of necessities continue to rise.

guess what the federal government gives more a shJt bout foreigners than those deserving us citizen who desperately need help.

i honestly have comtempt leading to hatred for this current adminstration.

even if the president and congress get voted out nothing will change the only thing they are interested in is the POWER to f*** us over.

I dont understand..... where are all the people calling pakistanis lazy, and telling them to get off their asses and go look for jobs instead of accepting handouts from the government?

is this in exchange for them telling us where Osama is? She's been busy over there.

Hey, Hillary? How about a $7.5 billion aid effort to win back our country? Whaddaya say?
