How about we just loan them the money, sit back and see how they invest it and then see how long it takes Africa to pay it back. Good faith thingy. I could live with that. You?

Have you studied the history of investments in Africa? They will be lucky to get a couple of candles and a floor fan out of that investment once the corrupt officials get their hands on the loot.


Just to support your point :

I'm done watching that lying bastard say a word.I have no interest in what he was lying about today. The only thing I'd every watch him talk about would be him resigning. So you let me know when that speech is made.

This is true.

The world is getting a lot smaller and what goes on in a country miles away affects us.

Case in mind is SARS.

Why Capetown? Too much of a wuss for Jo-Burg?

As long as we stay the grid will be fine.

Anyone remember when Italy left Somalia. The utilities, piping and wiring, were ripped out and sold for scrap, leaving them in the dark without water. Has any thing changed.

Then go frick yourself cause that won't happen. I prefer him drone you, your family, and all your useless friends before he resigns.

Better yet, leave. And take half of the Politards with you. :)

Reminds me of history. Didn't somebody suggest they would be better without Jewish people?

No, that's rediculous. I worked in Jo'burg and Capetown as a consultant. Jo'burg is a freaking shite hole. Every person I worked with was trying to figure out how to emmigrate out of there. Rape and murder are part of every day life there. Not like Chicago, I mean all the time. While we were there, a British Airways crew was beaten half to death smoking cigarettes in the parking lot. The only way to make an "investment" pay off is to pillage the natural resources and leverage the human misery that is the diamond and titanium mining. I suspect that is what China and Brazil are doing. The rest of the money is just going down a bloody hole.
