So by this logic, if any proportion of money sent to charities is lost or wasted, charity is altogether useless.
We aren't talking about lost or wasted money. We are talking about US taxpayer money, ending up in the hands of terrorists that want to kill us. Please try to stay focused.
You don't understand the fact that the perpetrators of this fraud are Afghan companies, not the UN, according to your own damn sources.
Sorry. I see you're confused again. My fault. I went into two different topics. Let me clear it up for you............1) We need to stop giving money to the UN, because they are a corrupt organization.2) We need to stop funneling money into the mid east, because it ends up in the hands of terrorists.How's that?
As clarification: did you support the War in Iraq, and do you support the War in Afghanistan?
No and no. Not with ground troops anyway. We should have used satellite intelligence, drones, and bomb strikes............every day. Continuing until they were crushed. The wars would have been short, and we would have broken their backs quickly. We should not become involved in "politically correct" warfare. The focus always should to be to destroy our enemies as quickly and efficiently as possible.
Do you have any idea how we fight Nazi Germany?
How Nazi Germany fought Russia?
We no longer have the stomach to fight wars to win. Because of that, even more people die and suffer. The Bible talks about Joseph (USA & Britain) fighting as a "Consuming FIRE" to our enemies. We WERE that, and the world respected the might of the USA. Not today.
It's a primitive, and ridiculous notion that you can nation build by bombing shit.
I'm not interested in nation building. If an enemy strikes against this country or its citizens abroad, you respond quickly and with devastating strength. You crush them so they, and other hostile nations will think long and hard about attacking the USA. It's how you fight to win and minimize future conflicts.
Even ignoring the ethics of causing massive civilian casualties just to show your tough you are, this strategy clearly isn't working. Our approval rating in Pakistan has dropped to 12%.And here's a newsflash: crazy religious terrorists don't fear us! Do you seriously think suicide bombers will actually be deterred by military force? They don't care if they, their families or their country get crushed. Deterrence doesn't work when your enemy lacks self preservation.
So Bush was right then...
No, Bush was wrong.

So you do get it!!!We should have located them and bombed the crap out of them. It wouldn't have taken long for the civilian population to turn their backs on Al Queda, and not allowed them to hide behind women and children. By going there, we made enemies out of ourselves.How long do you think it would have taken for the people to figure out that every time Al Qaeda showed up, everything got blown up? Not long. They would have run out of hiding places within weeks or months, not years.
