We send aid for the same reason we send it everywhere else. Influence.

LOL if foreign aid is used to buy influence, then we're really getting a bad deal on that.

Foreign Aid is all about influence. Some of it military, some of it political, some of it economic.

Honestly, we can't afford it and need to drastically downsize our foreign bases and operations.

We can't fix everything.

That being said, supporting Israel is a no-brainer.
