    thank you EU! its not enough for you fucks to colonize Africa and ruin it with your misrule and cowardice, but now you got to screw the Africans some more... YAY for the triumph of greed.

    :fu2: EU!

    oh and when are you fuckers getting around to admitting you should seriously help the Iraqis and not the Iraqi insurgents and what's happening in Darfur is a genocide?

    Let them eat tofu...after all, fish and beef (or in this case, antelope meat) are not necessities to life. mariner told me so!

    WOW! What's your beef with the EU??

    This article is depressing, but don't try to tell me the US and other industrialised countries are not guilty of stuff like this. It's just the way the world is: the rich and powerfull (EU, US,...) screw over the the poor (Africa,...) to get even richer. Sad but true... if we would pay them a fair price for their natural resources, they'd be much better off.

    About Africa: I'm not particularly proud of the whole colonisation history and the role my country played in it, but hey, they've been independant for 45 years. Time for them to take responsibility for the problems on their continent and stop blaming us.

    Oh, yeah: why should we help Iraq?

    You shoudn't. Its just that..for once...ya know, we had hoped you lazy douchebags might actually do something for once just because it was right and not out for profit (guess those oil deals were too sweet to pass up eh?) . But no biggie. It's not like we really need you anyway.

    Why should we help a country that`s afloat on oil while there are many, many other countries worse off? I would rather have my taxmoney go to a country were people need it more to survive (lots of African countries come to mind)

    You dont`t need us? That`s good! But I`m sure the US goverment is going to ask for our help anyway soon. I guess we`re going to chip in some money, just because it`s in our interest too to get Iraq stabilised soon.

    Lazy douchbags ? The EU just approved a amount of subsidies for the new 10 members (mostly from the old communist countries, you know 'new europe') larger than the Marshall plan. The EU accounts for about 50% of all foreign aid(foreign meaning third world)...

    see ya

    How nice of them to spread it around to the new provinces. I can't wait for all the linguistic issues to hit the fan, not to mention cultural and religious. It's gonna be a real riot. :D



    And where pray tell is that "aid" money being spent? In the good ol E of U no doubt. Aid money is not "free" money Mr. Peabody, it usually has strings attached.
