Nigeria’s “anti-corruption commission”, a late entry into the “oxymoron of the year” competition, has found that past rulers of that country have stolen or misused billions of dollars.
The amount of money “missing” amounts to all the western aid given to Africa in four decades. This will no doubt prompt many vacuous liberal dingbat performers at the Live8 concerts to offer this up as concrete evidence that the west is giving way to little money. These people won’t be happy until there are trillions of dollars in aid stolen by crooked leaders and warlords. Then, and only then, will we know that the west is compassionate to African plight.
