Liberals will be outraged, but the truth is you must keep your friends close and your enemies closer. Better that we assist these people than Iran.

$380 million to Syria war victims and yet we have people starving and people unable to survive making minimum wage in the U.S.

Kerry can run around with an open check book backed by current and future U.S. Taxpayer dollars like Clinton did as Secretary of State while we continue to rack up yearly deficits that continue to grow our overall debt and pretend like we are acting in a humanitarian way? Please tell me what is humanitarian about leaving this country in financial ruins for the next generations? Are we EVER going to wake up to the fact that we are already broke in this country?
