Are You Doing Enough?

As the G8 gets ready for anarchists and moonbats, the issue of world poverty and hunger is front and center.

Pink Floyd artist David Gilmour, whose mere existence shows that drugs can be taken to extreme excess without killing you, will be getting back together with drug pal Roger Waters for their first concert in over two decades. They will be playing the Live 8 concert to raise awareness of third world hunger and poverty, with a simple solution. You countries that achieve due to your rule of law and capital markets, hand over the dough:
"Like most people, I want to do everything I can to persuade the G8 leaders to make huge commitments to the relief of poverty and increased aid to the third world. It's crazy that America gives such a paltry percentage of its GNP to the starving nations."

I'm sure Gilmour didn't include private U.S. donations in whatever calculations he used. I'm sure he hasn't mentioned the people who cause this hunger and poverty, like African dictators such as Mugabe. Nope, no mention in the article. I also didn't see any mention of Bush's part in the already done deal of debt relief given to Africa this year along with $1.4 Billion in aid. Nope, not relevant at all.

BTW, the kid in the picture is 11 months old.

The starvation in Africa is not the result of a lack of food. Starvation is a weapon weilded by their own gov'ts as a method of genocide/democide of the "undesirables" or dissidents. It won't matter how much aid we give. The food will sit in the silos rotting.

The Africans don't need food. They need guns.
