I always knew the world needed a whipping boy. Muslims in Nigeria and now Pakistan are murdering local and usually female workers who are innoculating babies against polio because they believe Americans are behind a plot to make women more lustful and men unable to perform. I'm sorry but that is both funny and tragic at the same time. I grew up in the era of polio epidemics, The loss of children was horrendous and the sight of crippled and paralyzed children was too common. Yes there was a CIA operation that did in fact innoculate children against polio while gathering intelligence on Osama ben Laden, but you might want to remember that these children were indeed innoculated and, infact, the Pakistan government spokesman said Osama was "not" in Pakistan when he was in fact a resident of a Pakistan garrison city. It was a shameless lie and we did take action. Still the need to wipe out polio still exists and we spent real money to help village children and their families. Well, I would suggest that the American government reduce all foreign aid to Pakistan to zero. I also suggest we remove all troops, money, equipment,and diplomats from Afghanistan and Pakistan and if per chance their home grown violence threatens American in any way-no drones-just guided missiles and carpet bombing to take care of any issues. They can run their nation their own way and I will thank them in advance for the poor souls that flee their violence. Some how we always seem to benefit from the violence in other nations. Educated refugees are usually the first to flee. So let them blames us for all their ills and we will spend our money here at home.
