Comment: Thanks.

I seemed to recall something of the sort being mentioned. That clarifies it for me.

The article you linked to indicates that Rand proposed stopping foreign aid to countries that are not cooperating in the "war on terror". This includes Egypt Libya and Pakistan. That is an odd collection.

Libya under Qadhafe was very cooperative against the Islamists since they were his enemies also. Pakistan to my knowledge is also cooperating with the drone strikes against so called militants. If Egypt and Libya are no longer cooperating it is because the US and NATO have installed Islamic governments there. They also stole all of Libya's foreign assets and her gold...not to mention all her natural resources are now being plundered.

Rand may have another reason for cutting off foreign aid but I would rather see him asking for reparations for those countries that have been destroyed by US actions and compensation to families who have lost their loved ones in these genocidal campaigns. This would match the requirements of the judgements at Nuremberg against the Nazis who were also adjudged to be the aggressors in WWII.

"Jesus answered them: 'Truly, truly, I say to you, everyone who commits sin is a slave to sin. The slave does not remain in the house forever; the son remains forever. So if the Son sets you free, you will be free indeed.'" (John 8:34-36)
