Mfw apparently America doesn't help any other country and isn't in millions of dollars of debt because of that help.

It's not like they used 1,406 billion dollars on war, and an additional 500 million dollers on military equipment just this year or anything like that.

The America one is false.

We spend plenty of time and money helping other countries while there are still plenty of starving people in our own country.

The thing that made me laugh the most was that fact that America didnt know what the rest of
the world was, even though they are always intervening with every little thing that happens

I never understood why people care about Africa. There's already 7 ****** billion people in the world, why do we need more useless people to survive and feed? It sucks that it has to be this way but people gotz to go.

I read somewhere that for awhile now we've actually been producing more than enough food to feed the entire population. Poverty, inequality, and logistics are the problem, not scarcity.
More grains and stuff are bought for biofuel or animal feed, or whatnot, instead of going to starving people in developing countries (that can't afford the food).

Heh. Well, one could argue that if someone already has more than they need (or even use), why should they have to demand something in return? Isn't that just greed? It's not like we'd starve, after all. There's more than enough food produced currently, never mind future advances in science and agricultural techniques. One could also argue that we have a moral obligation to help our fellow man.

In any case, when did I say we should simply keep giving them handouts? I didn't say that. Maybe in a kinder world if one group of people have a surplus, they could share with those who have less. But it's not so simple in the real world, and I don't pretend to have the answers to its problems.
My point is that it's more poverty than a global lack of food that's at the root of world hunger. True, there are a lot of poor people that are lazy, but there's also a great many that work very hard. The sad fact is that all too often, that's not enough. You can't tell me that people in developing and third world countries have the same opportunities as wealthier countries. Even people in the US can work and work, but still barely get by. When you don't have access to food, education, adequate health care, when your country is torn apart by civil war and tyrannical dictators... it's no easy thing to escape poverty, and therefore hunger.
I think it probably would be best to focus more on encouraging people to increase their own livelihoods than just simply giving them stuff. And, more importantly, give people everywhere the opportunity to do so. Giving a man a fish vs teaching him to fish and all that.

It was actually a stab at how ignorant most Americans can be when it comes to the rest of the world, not how much the government and taxpayers toss at the other countries.
