Insanity. The only book they consider worthy is the Koran.

Last thing we need to do is tell others how to educate. We suck at it.

They could hire 1800 teachers in the USA @ 50,000 a year with that 90 million...

I think in this particular circumstance, it might be worth the investment. This is because, if we get the textbooks, it means the Islamists won’t choose the textbooks, and every girl who gets educated will be one more woman that will not want her daughter reduced to farm-animal status by Islamists.

For all his faults, Saddam was a firm believer in a secular society, and was a lot closer to our point of view than the Mullahs in Iran. Had he put more time, effort and energy into keeping Iraq together, instead of being a dumbass and invading Kuwait, he would very likely still be in power and treated like we treat the other tyrants in the region.

In any event, the Iraqis are still leaps and bounds more urbane than a lot of the Arabs in the region, and if we can keep them sedate instead of Islamist, it will prevent a lot of heartburn down the road.

Can we please stop spending money on that damned country? Let the Chinese pay for it - they’re getting the oil contracts.

Geez-o-petes. Another DoS initiative to give away tax money to a bunch of sand-monkeys.

DEFUND socialist collectives, foreign and domestic.

“Above all, if you wish to be strong, begin by rooting out every particle of socialism that may have crept into your legislation. This will be no light task.” - Bastiat 1801-1850

DEPOPULATE socialists from the body politic.
