The U.S. helps save the Egyptian people from the tyrant Mubarak -- and then radicals attack our embassy. We help Libya free themselves of the horrific Muammar Gaddafi, and they storm our embassy and murder our diplomats. Should the US suspend aid to the countries that commit these crimes?

FOXNEWS.COM reports:
Lawmakers and other officials stepped up calls Thursday for the United States to put heavy pressure on the governments whose people are storming U.S. diplomatic posts across the Middle East and North Africa -- even if it means freezing aid and expelling diplomats from Washington.

    I'm 75 years old and have watched government foreign aid start then get bigger and bigger until it is now preposterous the amount of money they are giving to our enemies. Originally helping our allies wasn't too bad but now we ignore our allies and aid our enemies. It's outrageous.

    Actually, we should stop all aide except for Israel. The rest of the world can sink or swim on their own. They don't deserve our money.

    Circumventing the obvious flaw, in your question; (which is written in a misleading manner) No, we should not deny aid to a foreign Government, simply because a few of its citizens killed a few of ours. If you're going to use that logic, the United States of America should discontinue aiding its own citizens, seeing as they murder one another, on a constant basis.

    The Americans are ours to take care of but NOT the mideastern ppl. We are not responsible for them and nothing we do to help is really helping,anything. If we,leave then they fight each other.

    I'll drink to that~~the religion of islam cannot seem to separate religion from politics~ which is a VERY dangerous thing~In the USA we cannot allow them freedom of religion if they can't leave their politics out of it~~ allowing them to "mix" their religion with their politics is a danger to every country that they immigrate in which to live!

    Yup ~ they don't want us THERE~ but I do not understand why they want our money cuz most of the middle eastern countries are FILTHY RICH with oil~ It is the Imans and the rest of their politicians that hold onto all of the money~ we send aid for the little guy ~~ and the BIG guys benefit from it~~ Much as the pols do in the USA

    Absolutely! They want to attack our embassies then I say let em fend for themselves. We don't need them. I say screw all of those low life wipes! When they start killing their own folks and they start getting desperate for help from other countries they can go get it from some other country "other" than us. We've been a doormat long enough for those a$$hats! We've lost enough good folks for those unthankful jerks!

    I am tiring of "The White Man's Burden."



    This world gets smaller every day.



    Mind your own business, create your own society, let the world emulate or reject it. It is their call. It is our choice to make this land from "sea to shining sea" the envy of the world. You mess with us or our allies that TRULY share our ideals, we have an air force and a navy.

    It's a strategic decision based on who might fill the vacuum, how much worse things might become without funding, etc.... In MOST cases a level headed analysis will tell you pulling funding will run counter to our goals.

    Imagine the European economy, if the US stopped all our aid and closed up all our bases and brought all of our nice toys home..

    They would actually have to spend money on their own defense instead of the American taxpayer subsidzing their defense since ww II...

    “The way these perpetrators acted and moved, and their choosing the specific date for this so-called demonstration, this leaves us with no doubt that this was preplanned, predetermined.”

    — Mohamed Yusuf al-Magariaf, president of Libya’s General National Congress, on the same program.

    In his interview, Mohamed Yusuf al-Magariaf, the president of Libya’s National Congress, said Libya had arrested 50 people, many connected to al-Qaeda. That would certainly bolster the notion that the date — Sept. 11 — was not a coincidence. He also said a few of those arrested were from other countries.

    It is in Magariaf’s interest to emphasize that this tragedy does not reflect anti-American feelings by the Libyan people, especially because Stevens was a well-liked diplomat in the country. But he was also emphatic that “the way these perpetrators acted and moved” and the “specific date for this so-called demonstration” make it clear that the attack was planned.

    “It was planned by foreigners, by people who entered the country a few months ago, and they were planning this criminal act since their arrival,” he said.

    Guess the leader of Lybia should know.....
