gotta love this, hah, sums up what a freak show this is- the developing nations (ie those who are begging others for money) walk out, what exactly is their bargaining chip, they are the ones begging for crying out loud

What's their incentive? They are the producers in this twisted global economy of over-consumption and they're the ones being asked to sacrifice?

The problem with Africa and tribalism is that the European nations created colonies based on what each could seize and hold against the other colonial powers, then left nations that were based upon European power balances, not African ones. So the "tribal problems" are actually the results of tribes being split among several different nations, none of which correspond to pre-colonial ethnic or culture areas, much less to existing political entities.
