I saw an article online about the US aid to Western Africa. ONE HUNDRED FORTY MILLION a year in annual aid yet we have jobless and homeless people in the US. We have inner city schools with outdated text books and no computer access and we can justify giving $140 MILLION to a small western African area?
"WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The United States is suspending at least $13 million of its roughly $140 million in annual aid to Mali following last month's coup in the West African nation, the State Department said on Wednesday".
Israel, a country of what 20 million?, gets more money than the whole Continent's of Africa and South America combined..... Works out to about 10k per person, per year.
Its just plain stupid.
