It makes me wonder why, when a tsunami kills less than 250,000, so many people contribute to help the victims. I'm not saying its not a great thing to contribute, but why does it need to be on the news all the time for someone to care?
Millions die in Africa from famine, lack of medicine, civil war, AIDS, and other preventable causes every year. And yet most of that isn't even reported.
And were the hundreds of billions of dollars really necessary to create anarchy in Iraq? How inhumane was saddam in comparison with some of the dictators in Africas past, as well as some who rule right now. Dont those people deserve to be liberated by their freedom hating rulers too? Atleast over there we couldn't fuck up anything worse than they already are.
There are a lot of countries in need, but I guess Africans are just a bunch of niggers without oil.
