    If I’m correct a B-2 bomber costs 2.000.000.000 $.
    I think that they can help poor nations with all this money, and not make War Machines like this one.

    We give more than all nations combined. Help yea right. So some corrupt third world dictator can use the money for his liking. Get a clue escary

    Oh dear. This isn’t pretty. Were there any fatalities? As far as Escary’s point of view is concerned, I am personally of the opinion that the world would be a better place if the richer nations stopped interfering with the politics of less developed countries, and also if we stopped throwing money and aid at them. It’s about time they learned to stand on their own feet instead of depending on the UK and US for aid and food. With less interference, they might start making a better life for themselves by ousting their dictators and installing their choice of leaders. Do nations like Ethiopia REALLY need Su-27s more than wells and crops? I think not….
