Rich19;4164355You consider money spent to feed people wasted? I'm sure your family would love the extra money that would come with not having to buy food at all.

What I ment was that sometimes they take it for granted and spend it on other things other than feeding the poor.

There is, of course, a solution to this. Send them food and resources instead of money.

Wouldnt it be easier for america to release all the dept these countries are in, so they can create an econemy, lets face it america screwed alot of there econemies anyways and helped cause alot of it, as the capitalists of the world, and the creators of, ''heavily regulated and subsidised '' free trade'', [ that should be statement of the week ! ] they should become true to there words. There would be a huge % of poverty avoided if the world actually had a ''free trade'' sceme. Donate more rich americans, dont leave it to the workers on mass.

I read an interesting article in Time magazine today about the lack of education in Afghanistan. The amount of money the education system needed was something like $400 million, a number the US could easily give. Now I am not one for giving away money to other countries when my own country has problems it needs to fix first, but our support of education in the region of Afghanistan does have some great value. I should say, though, the Time article focused on women's lack of education. One thing very interesting about women, according to the article, is that when women are educated the health system (and something else I don't remember what) is improved. Also, educated women could lead to decreased fundamentalism in the region. So, if we fund education in Afghanistan (and other countries in the Middle East) it could be in the interests of the US.

America is in debt itself, by trillions of dollars...

If we're going to send crusades all over the world, do it for a reason that actually makes some sort of sense. Do it to earn your salvation, do it to conquer someone and exploit him, do it in retaliation... don't do it for vague bs like "building democracy". What screwed us in Iraq is our lack of clear objectives. If we just said "okay, we're going to go in and steal your oil" or "we're going to oust the current regime, then leave a week later", or "we're going to kill everyone in sight, then leave a week later", things would have turned out much better for us, both in cost and in lives, and in politics.

Yea l know, sadly it effects us all economic wise, l dont want to see Americans suffer at all, l remember WW2, but seriously things need to change in our world if we want to stay on top of it all.America should be taking the lead, saddly it isnt. It did help to create alot of starvation, and wars, and death, not saying it would be different under any other system or country, but, we stand for freedom, unlike alot of other places, we stand for democracies, free speech, etc, we or you [america ] should really try and fix some of these things, that, can realisticly be fixed, but because of the way america does buisness in the free trade sceme world wide, it makes us look pretty bad and makes fixing alot of things, a straight up, conflict of interest. whada ya do !

Uh huh. I take it for granted you are unaware that some of these resources being food and such are confiscated by the north Korean government; while 100s of thousands of Korean children are malnutrition and die year after year because of the food the government doesn't give them. I think this dignify s a reason why we shouldn't give countries like NK food aid, IT NEVER GETS TO THEM! Instead this food aid should be going to our country homeless and hungry; and maybe if other 3rd world country governments are willing to shake our hands and cooperate, should we send food aid for them.

Because the British have such an excellent track record in Africa and the Middle East?

Daniel, it was the British (along with other European states) partitioning Africa and the Middle East they way that they did that is causing the civil strife and famine that we are dealing with today, and will be dealing with for quite some time into the future.

The US military is already in Africa, albeit in small numbers. Furthermore, we are the only military with the ability to project power anywhere in the world. The Canadian, British, German, etc... armies are too small to take on global deployments in the same manner the US Army and USMC can.
