And you would have done what exactly?


Butt out. There was nothing we could do.

We had a brutal dictator in office and his ouster only lead to the same replacing him. Sometimes there's no good side to back. Sometimes it's really two bad options, so the only thing we can do is let it play out and not take sides. And not send Billions of dollars to a either side.

I would like to say, "Butt out and only give humanitarian aide", but it seems that aide goes to the politicians, military and/or rebels and not to the innocent people we want it to go to.

How many Billions should we send to parties that pocket the money and don't use it for the right reasons? How much should we give a group that once in power will be the same?

Kerry's latest check was for $250,000,000. They've gotten more and will continue to get more.
