The difference is most of the deaths in Africa although appalling are not part of an state organized mass killing of a race the closest I know of it to that was the Hutu's and the Tutsi-es in Rwanda.And its happening in Africa as we speak.... Starvation will end up killing almost as many innocents as Hitler did... The UN and Bono can only do so much...
Look at Zimbabwae; "Kick out the white farmers!" pure fanatical racism on the part of ALL the country until they had all the whites out of the nation, and no one to be racist to. The government started demolishing their homes and now they're crying out for aid! Ha! Let them starve! They were only well and good because whites knew how to run the farms, they don't 'cos they're stupid! And then they kick the people out who were keeping them alive! The fact that they're starving now is natural justice.
plan_D said:. And all that money going to Africa is a load of bull. It all goes to the warlords and clan leaders. Buying new mansions, mercedes and helicopters for private transport. All they're doing, all the time is fighting each other. How can we expect to help people inside a culture unwilling to help themselves? Even African-Americans have "disowned" them and refused to give aid because they think those in Africa are lazy and should work instead of just holding their hands out.
If you really wanted to help them, you'd go in there with military force remove the leaders. Rule the country, build the farms and feed the people. Much like what Europe was doing in the days of Global Imperialism. But these days "Europe bled Africa dry". People who say that don't have a clue; we built their roads, we built their railways, we uncovered their resources, we kept them alive! And yes, we did it for our own good but we still kept them alive. Europe didn't destroy the infrastructure it had developed in Africa when it left, the Africans did.
plan_D said:. Mankind has advanced far enough to create our own climate, we could turn Africa in to one lush rainforest if we wanted to. But Africa is racist, they hate whites and don't accept them in their country. The U.S could build the exact system they have in the Arizona desert to grow in a desert, but they never will. The reason is everyone rants on about giving them money. Why? Did anyone give Europe money in the Dark Ages? Did anyone give the Ancient Eygptians money?
Poor Africans with their droughts, locust swarms and war. Well, here's a solution; move near a river or dig a well (elephants can find water in the desert, so can humans), eat the locusts and stop being so stupid, stop fighting.
They won't though, so this has been a waste of my time.
