Here is a great article about US aid. I've never been a big fan of giving billions to countries for military aid. It usually doesn't make a big difference in the long run anyway. Egypt gets 1.3 billion and they still closed western NGOs. Pakistan gets billions and they were fine with letting Bin Laden hang out for 10 years. Israel gets 3 billion a year and they are always fine with using that military to take out terrorists and any civilians near them, no matter what the US tells them. Maybe we should start spending millions on changing the societies of these countries and not billions arming their governments.
