Ecuador Foreign Aid $ From US, and World Chart


Ecuador Protests.

I really hate to do this at suppertime on a Sunday night, but…..

Just read a story about peeved Ecuador (population 15.49 million), (Rafael Correa President, above)  pressing anew for the US to clear out of their country and stop current spying and no more new spying, etc. Hey Ecuador! I’m with you. And maybe you can get NSA to rein in here while you’re at it.

Ecuador says we’ve got way too many — 50 military personnel at the embassy, US says it’s half that. No US military base in Ecuador, both countries agree. 

        I looked up the dollars we send, and the totals fluctuate depending on where you look. But….Ecuador does get, from very generous us, about $200 million a year, for education, military training, drug interdiction. Is any of that working? What’s the bang for our buck, anyway.

Below is a published government list,  not just enlightening but stunning. Holy Moses we spend a lot of moolah around the world.  Some billions to countries I’ve never heard of and more than several handfuls to countries that really hate us.  Okay, we’ve known that for a long time.

But if nobody in Washington can cut spending, and White House Tours for kiddies get suspended, and our GI’s aren’t getting paid, and a dozen of America’s cities are bankrupt then whoa…..there’s way too much going out going on. Have a read…..and here’s the kicker….does NOT include military aid $$$. NOTE: CLICK ON COUNTRY BELOW AND YOU GET A DESCRIPTION FROM WIKI.(Take a peek, for instance, at Burkino Faso, a muslim African country famous for risky investment, dictators (previous president dismembered in a coup helped by France) and slavery!  USA sends them close to a billion dollars a year. The dictator leader is very wealthy. Everybody else is piss poor, one doctor per 100,000 people and average 6 children to every woman. What are we thinking? A billion dollars a year? Slaveholders?)

  1. YOU ARE RIGHT. YOU ARE RIGHT!
    BUT HOW TO THROW A WRENCH IN THAT MACHINERY?
    IT WOULD BE INTERESTING TO COMPARE THESE OUTLAYS WITH WHAT IS BEING SPENT INTERNALLY ON THE PROGRAMS TO HELP AMERICANS.

    • Thanks, Vera. That’s what I thought, too. And these incredible outlays year after year must provide a sizeable percentage if not all of some obscure country’s national budget. And we can’t fix our own? Sure would be nice if we had a working press again.
