What agenda are we pursuing? If we seek the eradication of disease and human misery, then we should fund international agencies like the WHO. If we seek to meddle in the internal affairs of other countries, we should stay home and mind our own business.

Foreign aid in Africa by western nations is seen locally as more of a curse, because of how many strings attached there are. Rather I believe China’s strategy of investing in these nations infrastructure and industry and improving their countries is a much better one.

We should seek to increase aid to all countries we are not already antagonistic, and play nice with them and help them to grow (e.g. the proposed East African Federation, should it succeed). Then offer similar aid to countries we've antagonized to try and mend relations, and gradually influence them to be better (e.g. Afghanistan).

@95GRCJX from New Jersey answered…1wk
