    this right here is Paint Creek Texas ;)......what you see is a lush, a veritable garden of Eden compared to whats going in the south, we are going thru the worst drought in 100 years, worse than the grapes of wrath era....I am sorry for the Ethiopians, truly but, well, 70 years of colonialism then 25 or so of the ever helpful World Bank, IMF, UN et al...and? there they sit.

    Africa is cursed by nature.

    It has been slowly turning into a desert for the last 2000 years.

    Last week UN said it was Uganda! (Yawn)

    It appears the UN and its allies are again on their propaganda route: Remember several months ago when the UN declared famine in Somalia and Somali pirates downgraded allegation to nothing but propaganda (and I then agreed with Somali "pirates")? And then in less than three months later, the UN announced Somalia was free of famine?

    Every nation has its tilling and harvest season, and a tilling and harvest season being from four months to about five months. Any sane person knows a famine, as declared then by the UN and its allies, could never have been over in three months!

    I therefore think the UN and its allies are again about to use technology to devastate landlocked Ethiopia and Uganda, as they have done in numerous occasions in other developing nations - Weather warfare

    That's a fascinating take on the goings on in Africa, LAfrique.

    Thanks for posting it.

    I have no germane comments because I know next to nothing about Africa.

    As to some cabal of monsters creating droughts?

    Why?
