This is bad because the entire west would then have to weigh in with troops and ignite a war. Not sure the scale, but chances are it won't be like
If we stop schooling the savages to be civil..then they won't be civil basically.
I am in 2 minds about it. We can use the foreign aid to prop up some programs in trouble already (such as SS...granted, its a drop in the bucket, but
there are many drops out there). But at the same time, I do understand the consequences.
Beware those whom make this a black/white decision. Clear sign either they have no clue what they are talking about, or have a warhawk agenda.
A discussion is required on this indeed...and the people need to understand where exactly the bulk of the money is going. Right now, the retardomedia
is painting a picture that we are basically giving money for them to buy italian suits and bombs when thats not the case...and its that money that is
