This is a great idea! Let American (struggling in a recession) donate 50 billion dollars so we can buy each dictator in Africa a new yacht and
palace. Apparently, we'll never learn our lesson with this continent and their unbridled corruption and blatant mismanagement of anything above
tribal level. This is just ABSURB!
This money to "prevent AIDS", while on its own is fantastic, within the wider context, it's not going to help. Africa should post a No Vacancy
sign, human beings many with AIDS are re-producing at a rate which can't be sustained by their (in)ability to grow food. This shortage of
resources(mostly water). causes desperate feuds between different tribes, all struggling to get the resources they need to maintain their population.
The feuds spiral into wars, genocide, mass rape and murder.
Please, dont misinterupt my sentiments. I feel for the helpless innocents and intellectual africans who live in the civilized remnants of colonial
times, (the ones who long for freedom and equality, and look on as their countrymen perpetuate this paradigm of war, genocide, famine, and brutality
But pumping my money into the region is not the answer! I would much rather waste this money in our own backyard. CHARITY STARTS AT HOME.
