    The State Department confirmed this month the administration has moved forward with $500 million in aid, and is trying to secure another $200 million from Congress. Department spokeswoman Victoria Nuland says the aid is important, because an “economically viable Palestinian Authority” would help regional peace and security.

    Not to mention all the support he has already given to our enemies in Libya and Syria. It's a tough job creating and sustaining an ample supply of enemies for us to fight but somebody has to do it. The global bankers and corporations depend on endless wars for endless profits. Be a real shame if they had to take a cut in pay or face a lay off.
