Have we learned nothing since 9/11? It was the advancement of economic interests in the middle east that gave rise to Al Queda. We need to spread peace, free from any other interest (economic or otherwise). Peace is not profitable. War is. The best defense against those who seek to destroy us is to stop trying to exploit them. This bill takes us closer to more war and more military. And I'm willing to bet that the funds allocated for this will include providing public funding for security for those corporate principals sent to these foreign countries representing the economic interests.
