I think what most people picture when they hear of aid from our governments or world Bank is money for development, hospitals, schools etc, not
These aid packages always have strings attached too, after all, there's no such thing as a free lunch, especially if the nation receiving the aid has
natural resources we want. The usual trick is to provide a development package, with the caveat being that western corporations get the exploitation
rights. Most, if not all profits go back to the big corporations while the people of that country get saddled with the loan repayments and interest,
so nothing changes for them.
Helping to generate internal strife and civil war also helps in enriching the arms industry and covering what we are really doing in these places. The
public are sold the story that we are trying to help, with all the film and photos of starvation and death, whilst behind the scenes we have groups
stirring things up and causing more mayhem.
I stopped giving money to aid groups a long time ago when I realised the futility of it all. We cannot change things whilst our own governments are
up to their necks in dirty little schemes to rape the 3rd world.
