Zimbabwe starving, so UN rewards them
I swear, only at the United freakin' Nations does this make sense. From Moonbattery:
It looks like socialist dictator Robert Mugabe's policy of stealing farms from Caucasians and handing them out to the goons who support him isn't turning out too well for Zimbabwe:Some 2.1 million people in the country’s southern provinces will face serious food shortages by the third quarter of 2007, and the number will reach 4.1 million in the first three months of 2008, the UN Food and Agriculture Organisation and the World Food Programme said. About 352,000 tonnes of cereals and 90,000 tonnes of other food aid will be needed to meet the basic needs of the population, the Rome-based agencies have calculated.
The crisis can be attributed primarily to "the country’s unprecedented economic decline," according to Amir Abdulla of the World Food Program. Zimbabwe used to be called the breadbasket of Africa. Thanks to the totalitarian application of liberal politics, it has become hell on Earth, making it the ideal choice to chair the United Nations Commission of Sustainable Development.
Makes sense. The country is starving and farmland is wasting away, rendering the country unsustainable, so according to the pointy-headed elites at the Useless Nations, this situation is a model of "Sustainable Development" for the world to mimic.
