Definition of Foreign Aid: Taking money from poor people in rich countries and giving it to rich people in poor countries

Andrew Bolt:

Live aid for militias & Third World Dictators

I call it the AIDS bizniss:

The evidence goes stronger – but what did you expect from an operatiion bringing cash and food to a land run by warlords?

Fresh controversy over aid to Ethiopia erupted today after an investigation concluded that millions intended for victims of the 1984 famine was diverted to anti-government rebel leaders – including the current Ethiopian Prime Minister.

Kumbaya brigades….

The allegations, made by former rebel compatriots of Meles Zenawi, are the first to detail how millions raised by Bob Geldof’s Live Aid were siphoned off to arm the rebels against the army of Mengistu Haile Mariam.

Mind you, aid for fighters against a madman like Mengistu can’t be said to be entirely wasted.
