    A leading Kenyan economist thinks that foreign aid is at least partially to blame for the drought and poverty that plague the continent. Apparently, government officials concentrate solely towards getting more aid, rather than boosting their production and ending poverty for themselves.

    Duh....Hobbit, most African countries are feudal dictatorships. They don't care about their people. That is why you give them aid.

    Africans starvin' in famine...
    :eusa_eh:
    Why aren't African leaders giving more for famine relief?
    August 26, 2011 - African leaders talk often of 'African solutions for African problems,' but the paltry $70 million pledged at an AU famine-relief conference raises questions whether this mantra is just rhetoric.

    That's like a homeless guy saying 'If only you hadn't helped me, it would have motivated me to help myself.' It's just an excuse. You can't blame a generous person for a needy person's lack of motivation. Generosity is right, and laziness is wrong; if a wrong cancels out a right, you can't blame the right. You're telling me that if we stopped offering humanitarian aid, those governments would get their act together?

    That is because aid goes to violent partisan rebel groups that don't give two shits about the "civilians" that want nothing to do with them or other partisan groups..

    Most of the aid does absolutely nothing for the "citizens."

    All that shit funds war...
