"But there are still poor in the oil nations. And so what? There are poor people in First World nations too. In Europe, in Japan, and in the US especially. Being a rich country does not mean everyon in it is rich, as witness the example of the US, which is the world's richest country, yet it has proportionally more poor people in it than any other developed country."

I cannot let go a snobbish leftist moon bat like yourself telling us those sort of crap.

If you stopped for a second whining about MONEY you would find out that GDP ("richness" as you spoiled communist like to say) is not the sole index on how to judge a country.

Why some EU countries are poor? Because they have been under communism (your friends) or military regimes (probably your other friends).

REGARDLESS, the former communist countries, BEFORE the plague of communism brought to the world composers, scientists, artists. Same can be said for Franco's Spain. Same can be said even for communist cuba, south american regimes or buddist asian countries

Look in your DEAR muslim countries. Not only poverty is present EVEN in oil country but LITERACY RATE is LOW. that's because for muslims ILLITERACY is WIDELY RECOMMENDED. A culture that degrades women to mere breeders is ok with letting women be illiterate. No such thing happens in even Cuba or south america or 3rd world countries everywhere.

Also, the mullahs need to keep the people illiterate so they can control them better.

It's people like YOURSELf that want to keep the status quo because your main occupation is BLAME the west or anybody else for the muslims problems, instead of the real gulty one, THEIR CULT.

It's not said that mere monetary richness is the sole need for a country. Armenia is poor and has been destroyed by beloved muslims turks that performed the first genocide of the century, but has a literacy rate higher than the majority muslim countries. Armenia gave more thinkers and more to history than the whole MUSLIM WORLD combined.

"Even so, I don't think the people in Muslim oil nations are generally poor and ill-educated."

yes they are, their religion forbids critical thinking.

"While I'm grateful to Americans and Westerners who donate money and other goods to developing countries with the honest desire to help"

no, you're just a hypocritical... guy that is not grateful, but what can we do?

"No, I think the real reason for the aid program is to prop up friendly regimes with monetary support, and to bribe and cajole other countries into helping the US. "

the church doesnt' care propping up friendly regimes.

"This is all the more important and necessary now than before because US popularity is flagging all over the world, even in traditional allies, thanks to their arrogance. "

LOL, that's why germany and france are seriously changing their direction to become more linked to the atlantic, chirac is widely criticized for his anti-american stance and germany with Angela merkel is driving the opposite direction than her predecessor.

Us popularity is flagging but when you're in trouble who do you call? when you need to emigrate, where do you go?

I suggest you to ask to your emigrated brothers in europe instead to listen to your marxist propaganda at home.

"Here's my evidence - as of 2004, US foreign aid to Israel was much greater than that given to every country in Africa combined. Who do you think needs aid more, Israel, which is now a First World country, or a country like Ethiopia? So why would the US give more money to Israel? Because Israel is a strategic ally while Ethiopia isn't. That's the real reason for the aid."

unlike an anti-semitic like yourself, usa wants to save the last leaflet of land by the jews. Ethiopia has receved BILLIONS. They went to waste, not our fault. The jews knows how to use the money. Sorry for you. You probably buy the muslim propaganda of your mindanao heroes that the jews are sons of apes and pigs.

Well they are not, they are able to turn sand into gardens. Something your pretty muslim brothers won't do even with a magic wang.

"That's the real reason for the aid."

the real reason for the aid is to help 20 million people preserve themselves from extinction.

If israel didn't have the whole muslim plague all over them there would be no need for USA help. Do you think USA NEEDS to buy israel's simpathy? how many other countries care about israel?

"I could name some other examples of US aid that the US would rather not mention"

strange, it's all over the place, LOL, everybody knows it, but in your little commie mind, everything is a secret, even if it was blatant obvious.

"Hey, not all African countries are led by "Muslim warlords"."

But only the muslim ones are murdering non-muslims.

"Yes, they're probably the most generous nation in the history of the world. But this isn't saying much"

of course 3rd world boy, after you cash the money is not saying much

"Besides, if the US gives more than any other country, that's because they're the richest country in the world. They can do that easily."

comparatively saudi arabia gives less than luxembourg and if you think luxembourg has an income slightly comparable to saudi arabia...

"I agree that fanaticism plays a part, however I think the real reason is the economic system. In our current world, freedom will not make everybody wealthy or even comfortable, that's capitalist claptrap."

instead the communist paradise is the answer. look how wonderfully it worked in the soviet union

"Too many people are disadvantaged right from birth, and civic freedoms alone aren't going to make them richer. (again, they can vote, but they can't eat three meals a day)."

you want a nanny state to provide everything even for lazy asses (as yourself) unwilling to work

"What's needed is a social-security net and welfare program, run by the government, not by corporations, for corporations pursue only their own self-interest."

pointless that you underling your cheap communist propaganda, i suppose you are going to eat crow, there isn't a single country where "your system" is running smoothly

thinking about the international aid given to philipines, if they went all to feed people like yourself and infesting them with pseudo communist ideology, it was indeed a waste of money

there should be a way to call back those money.
