#1 In other words, give us free stuff until the end of time. The funny thing is that most countries more or less make their own way after help has been rendered, and in fact, spend the next few decades paying off their war debts. Communist Vietnam spent decades paying the Soviets for the equipment used to conquer the south. Communist China repaid its Korean War-related debt to the Soviets within a decade even as tens of millions of Chinese starved to death. The Afghans have the temerity to not only not think about repaying some of the aid - they want it to continue into the foreseeable future. You gotta love the sense of entitlement. (I think we'll have to continue funding these troglodytes just to offset the Pakistani subsidy to the Taliban, but it's jarring to hear these people talk as if we owe them).
