Famine in Africa

Is it only me who's noticed that there a lot of Sub-Saharan countries in Africa that are refusing US Food Aid. Why? Because it's genetically modified! A ranking Zambian opposition politician said; "We refuse to be used as Guinea pigs, Zambia Republican Party national chairman Ben Kapita has said. Kapita said President Levy Mwanawasa must be commended for rejecting genetically modified (GM) maize from the United States because the decision was in the interest of the nation."

So now, after producing this nasty and phucked-about-with GM maize, the good old US of A is trying to force starving people to eat it. It's capitalism gone stark staring bonkers!
