I will be disgusted with anything I ought to be so why pass up an opportunity to share history with people who are possibly ignorant about it?

Please have a seat \_

It's 2013.  Take the energy of being disgusted and move it to what YOU can do about it.  How can you make a difference?  Once you come up with some answers actually be about it. 
 
 
Nothing worse than a complaining educator. LOL  If you don't want to recognize how much power YOU have when you are passionate about something then I guess you are content with your ranting from a desk in front of a computer...shrug.

But y'all need to make up y'alls minds about the kind of involvement y'all want the US to have in african affairs.

If money is sent, it is embezzled by corrupt government officials and ends up in private hands or foreign banks.

If military action is engaged, y'all bytch and moan about invasions and collateral damage. Talmbout how evil US soldiers are.

So what does that leave? Flying over dropping money out of planes? Facebook pokes?

Lemme hear some well thought out plans that don't involve what the US did then, but rather what you think the US should do NOW. TIA!


IA with alllllllllllllll of this!

Folks want help, but do they know what kind of help they want? How about some constructive ideas on what we can do with our time/money/efforts?

Or is this just another "I hate Obama" thread?
 
 
 
I think it is...Sleepy

there are actually many things the us govt can do to improve the situation in the congo.

it can start by removing its troops in countries that surround the congo and fund the rebels,

it can also start by denouncing its support for uganda and rwanda who seem to be pillaging at will with little repercussions and stop the sales of weapons to these two countries

it can also involve and support the un peace keeping troops by providing recon support

it can demand transparency and accountability for us owned firms that work in the congo such as a fare minimum wage and adherence to local labour laws

it can also petition the un to impose sanctions on belgium

it can exert pressure on the imf and the world bank to relieve the congo of its debt

ther is so much the us can do, but it wont, because basically this will impact on your conveneinces

as far as money being sent ending up in foreign accounts, what you see is a direct result of the wealth gap created by forces external to africa which has created an element of greed. furthermore, this is often a direct result of corporate sanctioned (with us military backing) kleptocracy.

and when good leaders who have the nations best interest at heart, the us secret service agencies make efforts to have those leaders assasinated or made political mutes because they threaten the money flow that funds your govt, your military your lifestyles

theeres an awful lot they can do, but they chose not to

But what country operates selflessly in practice not in theory

All of those sounds like UN preambulatory clauses
