U.S. Foreign Economic and Military Aid by Major Recipient Country: 2001 – 2009

It needs to be said: the United States supports dictators! There is no greater example than by looking at the country of Egypt. Egypt just finished toppling a dictator (Mubarak) who has been receiving substancial militaty aid for years, second only to Israel in the Middle East. Take a look at the numbers:

In millions of dollars (16,836 represents $16,836,000,000).

Now, if you want some detailed historical data, take a look at the U.S.’s Military Assistance, 1947–2010. Notice how much aid we gave Iran during the Sha’s tyranical rule.
