    This thread can be made sticky to follow aid given to Pakistan which then enables them to brag a lot on how a regional power they are in all aspects.

    The US track record on aid to Pakistan is not consistent. Source: Center for Global Development (note: since 2001, economic aid has been high but is hidden behind military aid in the graph – see shaded areas and point at which dotted blue line emerges).

    About two thirds of aid is reported to be "misused", rather a lot probably ends up resting in their generals Swiss bank accounts.

    Still that's a pretty small piece of change these days when you think over $300bn went on bailing out CitiBank alone, and a day in Afganistan fighting what are often Pakistani proxies costs DC about $0.3bn.

    In all religions, charity is Godliness!

    Therefore, if some country gives aid to keep the Pakistanis in acceptable health, they are being charitable to the poor and needy!
