Pure and simple, foreign aid is used to buy political or regional influence, and rarely given and followed through with in catastrophes. Every recent
tragedy of a natural nature has been capitalized upon by government officials in a Hollywood kind of way as benevolent saviors, and initially aid is
sent. TV clips of benevolent politicians saving the destitute elevate these in the eyes of the public, to the role of truly caring, sympathetic
humanitarians. But it's always done with 'someone else's money', and at no cost to them personally.
Where it's political as in national civil wars, we always wish to appear as fighting Tyranny, and liberating the citizens from a brutal overlord.
It's mostly Bribery Money, that can't be denied.
Meanwhile Americans fall through the cracks in to destitute poverty. Not all are career welfare recipients. Nor are they the recently in 'Vogue'
entitlement abusers. And you know who ought to be paying these Foreign Aid benefits..... The War Machine who causes all this chaos and destruction.
Caused in their wholesale profiteering and manipulation of Foreign governments. Selling to both sides I might add. And who very likely initiated the
People can feel remorseful for their governments behavior (I'm talking about us, the US) and feel some sense of relief by donating to those who have
become casualties of war, absolving ourselves of responsibility. Just throw money at it and brag at your next garden party.
Fact is, our career Government is broken from the top down, with very few honest and truly patriotic and caring individuals. And they are often
portrayed as fringe nuts. So the good get squashed in favor of the entrenched self serving many. The many believe they can't be blamed, hiding with
their anonymity in the many.
Be the change you want......fight the good fight. but remember in every fight there are casualties, you might be called to give blood for a Just
cause. Teach your children well...
