US Government launches crowdfunding campaign to help Syrians

Salon is reporting-

The U.S. launched a campaign this week on Kickstarter — a crowdfunding website on which people around the world can donate to fund proposed projects — to help provide aid to Syrian refugees. All proceeds will go to the U.N. High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR), the leading international body on refugees.

It is staggering that a country that spends around $600 billion on its military would think it appropriate to launch a Kickstarter campaign to ask ordinary citizens to raise aid for the millions of Syrians who have been displaced as a direct result of US decisions in the region. 

Having spent over $3 billion to bomb Syria in a year, you would think they could spend some of the federal budget to help those innocent civilians who have been left with nothing as a result, but as this abhorrent fund raising campaign shows, the US Government has its priorities all wrong.
