Yes, he said, we are dictating terms, we are arrogant, we are the viceroys!

Full marks for honesty.

But then he said: we provide the money, we give grants, we bail you out!

Wait a minute, your excellency. Who were you talking to? If this was directed to the masses of Pakistan, it is a lie.

You see, most of the money you give, is not grant, it is indeed loans. Then again most of the loan goes back to the US in the form of expensive consultants, or inflated projects awarded to US firms which the sublet it to local firms, at a very low rate. The result is not some ubber execution of project, but the same shoddy, corruption-eaten project the third world could get without your assistance.

What you provide is a continuation of corrupt governments, and an added burden to the masses.
