    Where do they get all this Money from? Oh well, milk the American Taxpayers somemore i guess. Why not? It's not like they matter or anything.


    A top US official said on Sunday that Washington has given $100 million in aid to Jordan to help host tens of thousands of Syrians who have fled the unrest back home and taken refuge in the kingdom.

    US ambassador to Jordan, E. Jones, said that the US aid will also help Jordan meet its growing energy needs in light of the repeated cut-offs occurring from unstable gas supplies from Egypt.

    He said the aid will address "the strains on the national budget as a result of the repeated disruption of the Egyptian natural gas, and especially the added cost of providing services and basic commodities to those fleeing the appalling violence in Syria."

    "Nowhere outside of Syria are the effects of the Syrian regime's violence felt as acutely as in Jordan," he said at a joint news conference with Jordanian Planning Minister Jaafar Hassan.

    The latest aid comes over and above the $660 million approved by Washington in December as military and economic aid to Jordan, which has received $2.4 billion from Washington in the past five years.

    Debt-ridden Jordan, a major beneficiary of US aid, is hosting more than 140,000 Syrians, and the kingdom is building more camps to house the refugees...

    Socialists/Progressives don't concern themselves with such things. They're usually Entitlement Hounds living off stealing from other Citizens. They just love spending other peoples' money.

    Boosting our image in the Middle East and helping citizens there without killing hundreds of thousands and invading and occupying a country?

    Yes. I support that.

    Why don't you?

    Nothing worse than flinging around the idiot insult while one makes basic grammar mistakes in the same sentence.


    As for the OP, while I am not in favor of spending our money on others while we need it at home, the reality is that it isn't taxpayer money anymore. It's just numbers. The debt is so large it will never be repayed. Ever. So spend it up! I say. The sooner we break the system the sooner we can decentralize power in this corrupt nation.

    Well then go boost your own image with your own Money. I mean it's not like we're $16 Trillion in Debt or anything right?
