If educational programs are so beneficial, then they can invest in them themselves, instead of arms going into the pockets of kleptomaniac dictators.I think this is a pretty juvenile way of seeing things. Sure you could say that if you pay someone, for some reason in some case, then whats to stop from others forming an endless cue for "their special case that of course needs to be compensated".
However, reflexively shutting the door to any sort of spending might stop you from committing to low-cost but hugely important symbolic gestures like education campaigns, impartial historical investigations and museums etc. Also it says a lot if you don't think the possibility of a having a mutual beneficial future is worth at least a minuscule material sacrifice.
It's funny how it always becomes about money in the end. Far better to be juvenile than hypocritical.
