Nice to know that nothing has changed in Africa, huh, Hillary?

From the Daily Mail comes the news: Britain and Ireland suspend aid to Uganda after £10m of funding ends up in Prime Minister’s account.
And if that has you shaking your head, check out this information about your own tax dollars at work:
Uganda is a regular recipient of American foreign aid. USAID, the State Department subdivision that administers foreign aid, reports that Uganda received $431.2 million in aid in 2008; $416.9 million in 2009; and an estimated $456.8 million in 2010. Requested disbursements for 2011 total $480.3 million.
How much of that do you figure got skimmed?

I cannot resist and have to comment on the Soldier Shooting Woman &Child picture.

Is that your son in Iraq? Or are our men good because they only do it to our enemies using drones and lists of carefully selected targets (with minimal collateral damage)?

Reminds me of John Bolton's definition of foreign as taking money from poor people in rich countries and giving it to rich people in poor countries.

To that gutless wonder who posted about the woman and child being shot, what a total waste of air you are.

I have a strong belief that you have never done anything positive for your fellow man.

And lack the balls to do so.

Effin coward!
