3rd World Whine: Bill Quick (the Daily Pundit) tackles the Guardian report that African "aid agencies" have their panties in a wad over the G8 summit:
The three biggest problems facing Africa are AIDS, famine, and tribal violence. The West might find itself in a more charitable mood if African leaders like Mugabe weren't using deliberate famine as a political weapon, Mbeki wasn't treating AIDS as an imaginary disease to be mitigated by the rape of prepubescent girls, and various central African potentates weren't slaughtering each other's people with gleeful abandon.
African Mercedes dealers are likely also as upset as the "aid agencies".
