see my post above

We give aid to get a country to do what we need it to do. Sometimes its quite necessary.

There's that, but it might also be because morality requires it. 

Morality and politics are not a great mix.

Politics is, or at least feigns to be morality.

Couldn't disagree more. There are certainly intersections between the two, but there are many times when the right thing to do from a political point of view is the wrong thing to do from an abstractly moral point of view.

Really?  Isn't every law, or every political action based on some moral code?

no, at least not officially. that's what positivism is.

Why do you conflate law and political actions?

How are we using the word "politics?"  I'm using it in the sense of law making and those people involved in the process, i.e politicians.  In that sense, the actions taken by politicians are interconnected with law.  Aren't their actions, with regard to foreign policy and national law making, based on some moral code?

I don't think I understand what you're saying. There might be a few agents acting with a positivist perspective, but I think that's rare, especially in the current political climate.  And couldn't their actions be reduced to some code to live by?

are you talking about the courts or the legislature? i think that in both arenas, positivist thinking is the rule and not the exception, even if it may appear that all legislators do what they do because they are being compelled by a set of morals.

Wow people.  was just saying:  We don't give as much as we could.  Perhaps we should.  But sharing in real life (unlike in kindergarden) is a choice.  If it is used for survival, that is still a choice.  That is the basis of free will.

Morality has nothing to do with it. The concept of morality is highly subjective (Ex: The Taliban and Women Vs. American Society and Women)
