I read this a little while ago and it made me wonder who does get aid from the US in these uncertain times ... and how much.

Discuss ...

More about : foreign aide

interesting piece...
that's a lot of money to a country that we are now skeptical about.

rerouting those funds and possibly re-brokering a deal with Egypt (if warranted) in today's day and age seems a good idea.

I'm for stopping all foreign aid and seeing what happens.

at least for the time being.... I agree.
and then renegotiate with whomever is beneficial to the US..

I bet a lot of whining would happen from the former recipients as they will undoubtedly say how the U.S. the bad guy and is starving/killing their population by no longer giving them a bunch of free money. This will make Obama, The Great Peacemaker and Compassionate Person In Chief, embarrassed as he will look bad on the world stage. He will give the former recipients twice as much as he did before to try to regain the approval of France, Sweden, and other European countries that he is trying to impress. We'll get twice as many RPGs to our embassies as a "thank you" for this outpouring of money as the recipients see it as a sign of weakness that they could coerce us into backing down and giving them MORE money than before.

Sound about right?

According to the site:

Quote:
Press TV takes revolutionary steps as the first Iranian international news network, broadcasting in English on a round-the-clock basis.

Our global Tehran-based headquarters is staffed with outstanding Iranian and foreign media professionals.

Press TV is extensively networked with bureaus located in the world's most strategic cities.

VISION

Heeding the often neglected voices and perspectives of a great portion of the world;

Embracing and building bridges of cultural understanding;

Encouraging human beings of different nationalities, races and creeds to identify with one another;

Bringing to light untold and overlooked stories of individuals who have experienced the vitality and versatility of political and cultural divides firsthand.


Yowser - not much bias there :p .. The comments are hilarious as well. Can't wait for those Iranians to develop their own "worldwide web" that covers themselves and maybe part of Lebanon :p 

Anyway, this should save Buhroke Obama some dough..

They are already setting it up dogman. Daily polls being reported with Romney trailing Obama by a few points.

What do you think the media narrative is going to be if Romney ends up winning by 10+ points?

That's right, "the republicans stole the election, the republicans stole the election". I can hear the resounding mantra echoing throught all media.

If Obama wins would you change you avatar to Obama for 1 week? If Romney wins ill put him up as my avatar for a week. Tis a gentleman's bet.

Obama is lowering expectations. Romney is attempting to set expectations knowing that Race is going to be a major factor benefiting Obama. That's a sad truth.

Given that, I think the middle class this election is going to be more driven than the lower class to vote. When Obama won 4 years ago, the lower class was highly motivated by him. That has since changed and I fully expect it to be close but Romney to come alway as President-Elect.
