It makes me soooo angry!

Bush 'to pledge Africa aid cash'

Yes, it does actually. Sounds like a good deal doesn't it? Look at the amount: $674m, a pittance compared to the amount he spent bombing the shit out of Iraq. But not only that; it's simply more aid on which more interest can be added therefore condemning Africa to more debt.

All credit to Tony Blair for trying but he should have pressed harder as the U.S. really does owe Britain one. Which brings me to another matter, this morning I caught HARDtalk on BBC1 (I'll try and post the video when it's online). This edition was with the undersecretary of state at the U.S. State department. Honestly! The unmitigated arrogance of the man, claiming that Iraq was a better place now and then trying to pin the blame for Africa's problems on Africa. Jesus Christ!

He said something about only giving aid to 'democratic' governments. Fucking American liberal democracy.
