We’re broke. Really, really broke. $16 trillion broke – more money than the entire world possesses.
So why are we sending money overseas? Because politicians are idiots, and once a handout starts, it takes events of near-apocalyptic proportions to stop it.
But if we’re going to be handing out money to foreigners (in addition to all that “stimulus” money that went to international banking conglomerates, I mean) – Michael Totten’s got a good reason to take the pocket change of the federal non-existent budget going to Egypt and give it to Libya instead. The people of Libya are doing what all Americans should demand that the peoples of the Middle East do – taking the fight to the terrorists in their midst, and driving them out.
Let Egypt’s corrupt government starve.
