International Aid or Payoffs?

When the US decides to cut or withhold “aid” to a nation or an organization because that nation or organization does something that is not in line with American interests then the term “aid” is being misused. Aid is just what it sounds like, help or assistance. Holding back aid over a political disagreement is unethical and immoral.

If a nation holds back funds because another nation or body does not comply with America’s demands those funds should be referred to as “payments” or a “bribes”. Very simply put “aid”, which is “help” or “assistance” should not be held hostage to politics. Either call it what it is or tell the truth about the unethical politics behind it.
