Another bad investment

Filed under: I want my money back. — Lex @ 10:35 pm

Mustafa Qadri raises an interesting point:

You would think that the citizens of a developing country promised $7.5bn over five years would be dancing in the streets. Instead, last week’s approval of the Enhanced Partnership with Pakistan Act, formerly the Kerry-Lugar bill, by Congress met with widespread howls of condemnation in Pakistan.

As nearly as I can tell, Pakistan thinks strings attached to the money would undermine its sovereignty, make Pakistan a client state, blah-dee-blah-dee-blah.

Well, here’s an idea: Let’s not give them the money. We’ve got better uses for it.
