UN-involved in Africa ?

Last February, the Senate Committee on Foreign Affairs and International Trade released a report that alleged Canada, and CIDA in particular, has made no notable or lasting impact in Africa after 40 years and $12 billion of aid efforts.

According to unrepentant hippie, in the US, a congressional battle looms over increases and amendments to the $15 billion AIDS program focusing primarily on sub-Saharan Africa. Desperately seeking a legacy that involves saving rather than snuffing out peoples' lives, Bush wants to double spending, the Democrats want to triple it — everyone's on the same general page, for a change — so who's the dissenting voice? If you guessed "pearl-clutching fetus fetishists", dingdingding!
