Why $900 million for Hamas? Give it to Mexico!
We will file this one under the "we are a bit confused" category.
This week, Sec of State Clinton ".....pledged $900 million in aid to the Fatah-led Palestinian Authority, including $300 million for rebuilding Hamas-controlled Gaza."
I don't get that!
What has Hamas done to get a dime from US taxpayers? Aren't these the people firing missiles at innocent Israelis?
Down in Mexico, Pres Calderon is in the middle of a huge fight: Mexican Drug Cartels Armed to the Hilt, Threatening National Security!
He could use more money, along the lines of the $1.5 billion that he and Pres Bush negotiated last year, i.e. The Merida Plan!
Let's give the $900 million to Mexico. It makes a lot more sense than Hamas!
On economic terms, we are providing Mexico with weapons and parts made in the US! In other words, jobs in the US!
Wouldn't this kind of expenditure make more sense than that "porky" $30 million program to protect a mouse in Rep Pelosi's district?
