Does anyone know how much would be saved if foreign aid were cut off for just one year broken down by military expenses and all other? We may have to urge Yardley out of self imposed exile to help with this.

Here's one link Mike. http://www.globalissues.org/article/35/foreign-aid-development-assistance. There's lots more, not hard to find. Percent of GDP is less than .7%. I don't know what that is in dollars. JD

Foreign aide in many instances is extortion money,either to prop up pseudo Govt, dictators, monarchs, etc...all in the illusion of spreading democracy or preserving democracy...I know its a pipe dream but I would love to see the USA become somewhat isolationist, they couldnt do it for a week let alone a year...
