Santo Domingo.- The governments of Dominican Republic and United States signed a agreement worth US$184.0 million to improve citizen safety and promote the country’s economic growth.

The agreement forms part of the new strategy by the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) over the next five years, jointly with Santo Domingo’s national development strategy.

US Ambassador James "Wally" Brewster and Economy minister Juan Temístocles Montás signed the agreement during a ceremony in the National Palace.

Under the agreement, USAID will disburse the funds over the next five years, subject to the availability, to focus on prevention of crime, HIV/AIDS and climate change.

The pact calls for the funds to be managed with transparency, accountability and social inclusion of vulnerable groups.

Well this is a slap on the face to those people that are saying that because of the court ruling foreign aids will stop coming into this country. Now lets not get mad at the Obama administration for this handout.

Just more hate-filled Banana Republic panhandlers whining for money while at the same time they're blaming Americans for everything wrong in the universe. Hypocritical parasitic trash behavior. Will this so called public safety money be spent to warn white people they'll be targeted every waking minute they are anywhere in the Dominican Republic?

If you cared to investigate more before posting, you'll get to see that the only thing they are doing here is some much needed damage control. After all, nobody asked Elena Brineman and USAID to push and lobby to have the old Napoleonic juridical (military) process here to be changed for the currently useless and totally unfit one for this society that we have now that goes by the name of "Código Procesal Penal". As some of you would say: "You break it, you pay for it".

If the USA hadn't invaded us twice and most of all the last invasion this country would it been a much better country. The 1965 civil war was about restoring to power the people that were elected into in 1961 legally elected by the majority which the USA opposed by the false accusation that Juan Bosch was a communist when that was not the true because he was the first president that allow free press and freedom of speech without being persecute it or kill by the people in power. Non the less even after the USA accused him of being a communist, 13 years down the rode his party wins and run the country for 8 years, and in 1996 4 years again the other political party that he founded run the country for 4 years, which are called up to today the best 4 years of any president of this country and the trend continue, and now again we have one his disciples doing a great and preaching J. Bosch views and believes. So they USA is just repaying an old debt and not just giving us money.

And the US continues their selfish ways by supporting Leonel the Evil, and his stupid wife.

The US can better use American tax payers dollars by finalizing the weather control HAARP project, and creating a much much larger tsunami to wipe out that entire DR/Haiti island. $184Mil can certainly get the job done, and it's not like dominican egos would care anyway.

I have never supported the US taking any actions in any foreign country, ever. Don't blame a free American citizen for your species being weak, corrupt and stupid. And yes, of course, every crook, liar, cheat, thief, parasite and street scumbag targets any white man that steps out into the public. Like every other whiny leech in the world, any usual Dominican won't recognize this as trashy behavior, since it has become your national character. Your country would have starved to death years ago, if it wasn't for everybody else throwing crumbs to keep you alive.
