    Probably most people don't see the danger or they agree with your assessment. Buying friends is dangerous and stupid. Paying governments who are buying our debt, doubly so.

    Americans by and large have no clue as to basic economics much less commodities, securities or even derivatives. They do, however, know a lot about American Idol.

    It has nothing to do with economics, it has to do with the old Cold War paradigm still in place that won’t die. Instead of communism now it’s ‘terrorism.’

    You’d think we’d learn by now we can’t buy our friends.

    America hates to lead by example. We rather lead by brute force, ignorance, and god who knows what else.

    We love war and this is what our government loves to ship out. We are a warmongering nation who thrives off of selling arms to other countries.

    This is news? It's been SOP for the US for quite a while. Ridiculous - and dangerous - but, hey, Obama does it so it's fine.

    I'd love to see where that AID money actually ends up.

    Much of it goes to insider corporations to do tasks that don't really help the people of the recipient nation and some smaller part of it goes to bribing insiders in that nation who signed their people on to the debt, I'll wager.
