US Has Given Syria $1B In Aid Since War Began

From Breitbart:

U.S. Spent $1,010,354,195 on Syrian Humanitarian Aid 2012-2013

By Wynton Hall | September 8, 2013

U.S. taxpayers have spent at least $1,010,354,195 on Syrian humanitarian aid for fiscal years 2012 and 2013, according to official numbers from the United States Agency for International Development (USAID)…

Last month, President Barack Obama pledged $195 million in additional humanitarian support to Syrians affected by the country’s civil war, tipping U.S. taxpayer spending over the $1 billion threshold.

That we know about.

"To help the many Syrians in need this Eid al-Fitr, the United States is providing an additional $195 million in food aid and other humanitarian aid, bringing our humanitarian contribution to the Syrian people to over $1 billion since the crisis began," Obama said in a White House statement. "For millions of Americans, Eid is part of a great tapestry of America’s many traditions, and I wish all Muslims a blessed and joyful celebration. Eid Mubarak."

Meanwhile, we didn’t get anything for Eid. Again.

The United States is the largest contributor of Syrian humanitarian aid.

Which, of course, makes perfect sense. After all, they are a very close ally. And there aren’t any countries in the region that have any money for aid.

However, Syrians embroiled in the current conflict say U.S. taxpayer-funded aid is insufficient and not reaching those most in need in the opposition-held north.

And never mind that the north is in the complete control of Al Qaeda. We shouldn’t be so damn stingy. We don’t want to have to fight terrorists who are suffering from hunger pangs.

"The vast majority of aid is going to territory controlled by President Bashar al-Assad, and the small amount reaching opposition-held areas is all but invisible," the New York Times reported…

The Times is always looking out for its friends.

    There are packs of wild dogs roaming the streets of Detroit, and we’re sending a billion dollars to Syria.

    What would a billion dollars dumped into Detroit done for the city? OK so it probably would have been stolen by the democrats running things there, but at least our money would have been wasted on American criminals instead of Syrian terrorists.

      Exactly right. The trillion dollars we’ve sent Africa via our federal government has produced exactly zero long term results and enriched Lord knows how many criminals along the way staring at Foggy Bottom and working South past the Equator .. our borders are as porous as a colander, drug warlords run free on our streets, black gang violence is making our cities look like South Africa on Mandela’s anniversary of inventing “The Necklace”, Detroit is a third world garbage town, Chicago is killing more people than Baghdad, Philadelphia is a hell hole of mismanagement, New Jersey’s towns are a plague of bankruptcy and violence, no federal help has been seen rebuilding from Hurricane Sandy, our dollar is toilet paper, our military exhausted, their supplies and spares dwindling our good Officers cashiered while the sycophants are left to feed off the corpse of what’s left Obama’s managed to alienate us around the world and our federal government is a pestilent scourge of criminals, spies, Hitler Youth wannabes, bureaucratic gangs, lawless appointees and Unions ..

      … so, of course Obama wants to ice this rancid cake by bombing Syria because Syria bombed itself.
