First The World's Police ... Now The World's Red Cross

I was so pleased to see that our current administration pledged 50 million dollars to disaster relief efforts in Pakistan in less than 24 hours. I can only presume that maintaining foreign relations with third world countries is far more important than providing any sort of immediate aid to the very taxpayers who fund the government in the first place. This act of kindness, unfortunately, made many American wonder why the "investment" was made at all. Let's face it, Pakistan must have something to offer, or we wouldn't help them at all ... it seems to be the American way anymore. Isn't that sad? We only send assistance to people that can someday offer something in return, and not help people just because they need help? And yet, so many citizens of this country just can't figure out why other nations don't like us. Well, I wouldn't like us either with that attitude.
