Africa has been existing on handouts for decades. Their leaders live off the monetary handouts.
Africa is needed for it's gold. If Africa had nothing they'd leave it in the dust like they did with Haiti.

So we're supposed to ONLY give other nations something when they give us something in return?? That's the most selfish thing I have ever read!! It's called being human and having a heart.

check out the History...you will discover that "people" from Europe did their share of destruction...now, it's called a "Blow back"

some thing similar to Ronald Reagan's support for the Freedom Fighters(taliban)...we all know the rest of the story

we should give a dime to other countries. it's not the function of the US federal government to have a heart. we have enough problems here at home. the US is supposed to trade with other countries. the only thing africa gives us is worthless refugees.

the best idea is for our government to stop giving jobs away to other countries and stop giving money to other countries, especially when we don't have it to give........

yeah, here's an idea. stop aid to all other countries until we get our house in order. 3rd world places like africa use the money to strengthen the military and keep the citizens down. ask the average african if they are happy the US gives aid to africa. if it was being used correctly, people would stop migrating here.
