Lars Larson thinks we must give money to Egypt to be protected?

Radio Host Lars Larson is in favor of some redistribution of wealth. He is in favor of foreign aid; for instance, giving money to Egypt. He thinks that if we don't give money to Egypt the security of the United States will be at risk. I asked, who will attack us if we don't give money to Egypt? He had no answer, and made a very quick exit.

We have heard this argument before, and it makes absolutely no sense. I started to explain to Mr. Larson that we have 8000 nuclear deliverable warheads and thus, the no country is going to attack us. It would be complete suicide for the leaders, as well as the rest of the people in the country. The decision-makers of the country, the leaders, do not want to commit suicide. We know this to be fact, including the leaders of Iran. Not a single one has committed a suicide bombing .

The idea that Egypt or any other country would attack the United States because we don't send money to Egypt is ludicrous. There is absolutely no connection between our sending money to Egypt and increasing the probability of the United States being attacked by another country. There are no facts or reasoning that support this conclusion . Egypt will not and cannot attack us, nor will any other country attack us for not giving foreign aid to Egypt, or for that matter, any other country. Obviously, whatever the reasons are for sending money to Egypt, it is not to protect ourselves.

Anyone else think some of the people are named very well?

Lars LARSON is okay with stealing our wealth and giving it to others. Imagine that.

I've listened to Lars Larson's radio show...

in the summers when I am visiting my son and granddaughters in Oregon. Now I know what he looks like. I had him pegged as a Neocon a long time ago.

Does anyone want to venture a guess as to why the U.S. gives all that foreign aid money to Israel's enemies? It's the dirty little secret that never gets told.

It's the reason why men like Ralph Reed and Gary Bauer and their ilk will never vote for Ron Paul.

Fissile materials signature.

In order to transport enough fissile material, contained in a device that includes detonation machinery and electronics, that would enable Iran or any nation to then transport that package into another container for transportation, and then drive it or fly it to a destination where it would be loaded on a ship, and then transport it 1,000's of miles across open ocean ...

That one of the many hundreds of satellites in orbit, many of which have sophisticated, nuclear materials detection capability, to even suggest that the GIGANTIC signature, (to those sophisticated devices), of this "package" would not be INSTANTLY detected ... is like ... smoking ... really ... really ... good CRACK COCAINE.

I mean you have to be a WILD CONSPIRACY NUTCASE to even suggest that this scenario could occur.

The fissile material signature would be spotted INSTANTLY from orbit through satellite, nuclear and fissile material detection devices. Instantly, like a BIG HUGE RED DOT on their screens.

To even suggest this scenario is hysterical and just, plain crazy.

what an exit... What a hack!

I just do not understand how it is morally justifiable to cut a single sent of domestic spending before we completely terminate sending money to other countries! Most of the countries we send our money to have their own entitlements and thats not even the worst of it: many of the regimes that we give money to are despotic and break every single one of our national principles on a daily basis!!

I live in Oregon so i've had the misfortune of hearing him rant since he was just a lowly local talk host. I just love the fact that he is getting grilled like this by people that actually know what they are talking about more and more.

What a hack, the Limbaugh republican media is out.

Foreign aid is sort of a

Foreign aid is sort of a reversal of historical strong arm tactics in that it's the American people who pay other countries so that Washington can take them over. Historically the invaders demanded payment.

IT IS always a temptation to an armed and agile nation,
To call upon a neighbour and to say:
"We invaded you last night - we are quite prepared to fight,
Unless you pay us cash to go away."

And that is called asking for Dane-geld,
And the people who ask it explain
That you’ve only to pay ’em the Dane-geld
And then you’ll get rid of the Dane!

It is always a temptation to a rich and lazy nation,
To puff and look important and to say:
"Though we know we should defeat you, we have not the time to meet you.
We will therefore pay you cash to go away."

And that is called paying the Dane-geld;
But we’ve proved it again and again,
That if once you have paid him the Dane-geld
You never get rid of the Dane.

It is wrong to put temptation in the path of any nation,
For fear they should succumb and go astray,
So when you are requested to pay up or be molested,
You will find it better policy to say:

"We never pay any one Dane-geld,
No matter how trifling the cost,
For the end of that game is oppression and shame,
And the nation that plays it is lost!"

Rudyard Kipling

Very good!

I'm impressed by this poem of Kipling's. The Dane-geld. I want to go and learn more about it. Thanks for putting this up.

Minnesota Mary

Thanks. The Dane geld was a

Thanks. The Dane geld was a payment that the Anglo-Saxons paid to Danish vikings in an attempt to make them go away. The Danes ended up taking over a good bit of England. To this day the names of places change when you go from the old Anglo-Saxon parts to the Danelaw in the middle and eastern part of England. Google Dane-geld or Danelaw.

Thanks for the information.

The way I see it, the U.S. is paying the Dane-geld not to protect the U.S. but to protect some other country.

Minnesota Mary

No not to protect other

No not to protect other people's countries, to CONTROL and dictate policy to other people's countries. When we give Mubarak of Egypt 3 billion a year he votes the way we tell him to in the UN, his policies towards his neighbors are what WE (the CIA actually) tell him they should be. It's about control. That's why our foreign aid is distributed throug the CIA. We are an empire. Washington takes money from the American people and without their consent uses that money to buy the CIA more colonies.

There are two kinds of people

There are two kinds of people who favor our ridiculous system of foreign aid.

1. Cowards who are afraid of Islamic terrorism and actually think Muslims are a threat on the same level as the old Soviet Union (an actual country with an actual army). Remember how Glenn Beck screamed and cried like a hysterical little girl when the corrupt American supported dictator Mubarak was ousted? We pissed away 3 billion dollars a year for 30 years to make sure that tyrant stayed in power and that democracy would not break out!

2. People who take pride in and love the empire. They usually don't call it an empire but they love to be able to chant U-S-A! U-S-A! and boast about how great we are. They always think that EVERYTHING the US government does overseas is benevolent and aimed purely at bringing freedom (which they usually call democracy) to oppressed people everywhere.

In reality foreign aid is just a bribe whreby Washington gets to tell the country receiving foreign aid how to run their country. In effect they become a colony of the CIA which has more blood on it's hands than anyone can ever know.

How many $billions was Mubarak worth...

...about the same as the amount of aid given to Egypt by the U.S.???

Minnesota Mary

He had a lot of it for sure

He had a lot of it for sure but a lot of our tax money went to the Egyptian military just as Washington, Jefferson and Madison intended.

If only we had a dollar..

.. for every time Glen Beck shed tears on his show in support of nations that steal American wealth.

Great two posts btw man. Really liked the Kipling poem.

lol thanks brother
