    The US is gearing up to drop $300 million of our taxpayer dollars on rebuilding infrastructure, in Palestine.

    Here is what the US plans for the Palestinians. Can anyone find a town in America which would not benefit from $300 million worth of work in:

    • Transportation networks such as primary and secondary roads, bridges and/or other transportation infrastructure;

    • Water systems including the supply, storage, treatment, transmission and/or distribution of water;

    • Sanitation infrastructure including solid waste management and disposal, wastewater treatment and reuse, pollution control, and/or ecological sanitation;

    • Vertical infrastructure including schools, clinics, health facilities, public buildings, government buildings and facilities, sports facilities, warehouses, food storage facilities, youth and sports centers, and/or other vertical infrastructure designed to benefit the public interest;

    • Electrical Power sector infrastructure to include alternative, sustainable and/or traditional forms of power generation (such as wind turbines, photovoltaic, solar thermal, geothermal, and/or fossil-fuel-fired thermal power plants), and/or electricity transmission and distribution systems;

    In addition, the State Department/US AID will lay down a sweet $58 million to promote tourism and other private sector job-creation in Palestine.

    Stunned that no one wants to use your tax money to rebuild your infrastructure? Unhappy that no one is dropping $58 million on your community to create private sector jobs? Want to know why?

      There…fixed it.

      As to the article. The Plutocracy doesn’t give a shit about America anymore. They’ve already pillaged it, and it’s on to bigger and better wars to sap the future tenant’s of ‘merica…that would be your grand-children’s grand-children’s grandchildren. The 16th Amendment was the best thing they ever did…er…for them that is. Now..they’ll make our 15trillion dollar debt look like a piggy bank. And it won’t do a damn thing for ‘merican infrastructure. The only “infrastructure” they care about maintaining here is the Income Tax base…with a gun to your head.
      Welcome to the REAL ‘Merica. The only third world nation with Disneyland, ‘merican Idol, Fox news, and a Government of the Corporations, by the Corporations, for the Plutocracy.

      The real irony is that all of the infrastructure will eventually be damaged/destroyed by the Israeli occupation forces and “settlers.” The destruction will also be subsidized, at least in part, by U.S. tax dollars.

      I’ve had respect for your blog for years but this article
      US to Focus $358 Million on Infrastructure: Not in US
      will cause me to drop your blog and delete the bookmark. Does Gaza ring a bell? Death and destruction rained down by American taxpayer funded military aircraft and arms that far exceeded this amount. They still live in an embargoed open air prison.

      Sorry, I’ve lost my respect for your opinion.
