RelanderProper education lowers the population growth, but that is only for long run and we don't have time for that: something needs to be done immediately if we want to avoid catastrophy in Africa (and in the world in general).[/QUOTE][QUOTE=Relander]That is why the economical help should be strictly supervised by the international community and/or given in the form of material like agricultural machines, school education material, food etc.

I agree completely. I never meant to suggest that nothing should be done right now. Throwing money at the continent doesn't do much right now either. That the NGOs are disappointed leaves me thinking that this deal leaves a lot to be desired.

Im just repeating what has been said before, but im doing it anyways. Trowing money at africa wont "fix" it, africa is so underdeveloped that its going to take ALOT more then just money to teach these people that killing eachother over nothing is NOT the way to go.. and that just the start.

I hate to say it, but the worst thing that ever happened to Africa is when the white opeople left. Why? Because the colonial governments didn't bother to leave an infrastructure or viable government behind. They mostly just up and left. Let's see where the power is concentrated in Africa: Egypt and South Africa. Where was there large amounts of infrastructure and a fairly well-educated population: Egypt and South Africa. Get my drift? The cure for every problem is education, but only if you're willing to spend the massive amount of money (likely numbering in the trillions of USDs) that would be required.

You are right, most of the countries that were left by "white people" are much worse off today, economy destroyed, infastructure rusting away, racial wars, corrupt goverments, (worse) poverty, desease.. People where so set on getting their freedom, they were to naive to realise that they had NO idea how to run a country. "Say, how does this powerplant work?"
