Egypt is telling us to keep our money, to stop giving them foreign aid.
I'd love to. Unfortunately, we have a major problem with that. It's called the federal government. They can't seem to realize that you can't buy friends.
We have friends. Britain. Israel. India. None of them get any foreign aid.
We also have enemies: Egypt, Saudi Arabia, Iran/Iraq, Kuwait, Ecuador, Venezuela...the list goes on. One thing I can think of that all of our enemies have in common is that they suck down major amounts of foreign aid. And that they hate us, either despite or because of that money.
If we stop trying to buy friendship, maybe we'd have a few more friends.
Or maybe we'd just be no longer funding enemies.
