    Aid cuts plunge US-Pakistan ties to new low

    We've cut aid to Pakistan.

    Who gets America's foreign aid?

    This article is about 6 years old but I can't find an updated answer to the question as to how many countries we give aid to. It seems the number is at least 150.



    Is there anyone left out there who still thinks we should be dumping money into all these countries.

    My opinion is if my money is going to be wasted by my government, at least do it in my country.

    There are times and circumstances that helping other nation's is in our best interest to support other Nation.....A dollar spent now will save us hundreds in the future. But you are correct unless it is absolutely needed then nothing should be spent or given to other nation's we have enough problems at home to deal with .....Exploded National Debt for one.
