Helping Africa

A realistic approach to charity from Bill O'Reilly:

Riddle me this: What do Madonna, Bono, President Bush and Prime Minister
Blair all have in common? They want to help poor Africans, that's
what. But how to do that is the rub....

The money, food and medicine is available. This is a delivery and accountability situation...

Remember, post-World War II Europe and Japan were rebuilt mostly by American administrators. It was literally "our way or no highways." And if African nations don't buy into that, then they should be on their own....

The world's wealthy nations do have a responsibility to combat suffering along with terrorism. But no longer can we allow chaotic nations to call the shots on how aid programs are run. If we really want to help the poor - we have to get up close and personal.
