US will slash $1bn in Afghan aid, says Pompeo

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo announced Monday a decision to slash $1bn in US aid to Afghanistan. Pompeo further added that the inability of Ghani & Abdullah to resolve their impasse had ’harmed US Afghan relations and, sadly, dishonors those Afghan, Americans, and coalition partners who have sacrificed their lives and treasure in the struggle to build a new future for this country.

Good! Cut ALL aid, EVERYWHERE! Let’s keep our money and stop giving it to ungrateful assholes that hate our country.

Good! Nothing short of complete westernization should be the condition for aid. Japan is a peaceful and successful country purely because America westernized their institutions, from women's rights to film to business relationships. Our failure in Afghanistan was in not arresting the mullahs, imposing women's rights at gunpoint, and shooting all opposition to westernization. No more aid for medieval backwaters.

Fully agree, if they won’t implement democracy, liberalism and capitalism why should western society bother funding such atrocious countries.

Slash it all. When did the citizens of the USA vote to become international tax-slaves for backwards countries?
