At more than $5 billion a year in humanitarian aid to Africa, President Bush has given more assistance to the continent than any other president. His administration’s aid was largely targeted to fight the major global health issues facing the continent, HIV/AIDS and malaria.

In 2003 Bush founded the President’s Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR), which guaranteed $15 million to be spent over the course of five years on prevention, treatment and research on HIV/AIDS. Under the Bush administration, the U.S. was also a leader in contributing to the Global Fund on AIDS.

In 2005 Bush started a $1.2 billion initiative to fight malaria. He defended the request for funding in 2007, saying,“There’s no reason for little babies to be dying of mosquito bites around the world.”

Probably Bush's greatest, strike that, only (good) legacy.

Why would Emperor O. do that? He wants rid of coal, right?
Besides, it wouldn't turn out like you seem to think it would. Ever hear of a guy named Nicolae Ceaucescu? He was the communist dictator of Rumania, sort of its uncrowned king. He sent his goons into a coal mining town called Timisoara to put down what amounted to a sit down strike by coal miners. It was a little more than the gestapo could handle so they called on the local version of the National Guard. Well, the Guard, like the Kentucky Guard, was composed of a lot of miners and their relatives. It just didn't go like old Nick planned. Want to send some city slickers from New York City or Chicago into these mountains, against locals...
This isn't Rumania, pinhead. Go dig some coal or something.

Unbelievable! Obama is in Africa trying to drum up business because the Chinese are all over Africa like a rash. They are building dams, rail roads, highways you name it. What do they get in exchange, resources...Imagine that, the Chinese moving in gain vital relationship with all these developing countries and later sell them copies of Toyota trucks and copies of cruise missiles. Yet you want to say its Obama on a African vacation spending your money.
If the Chinese want to try their hand at developing Africa, let them. Africa never developed a home grown civilization. The few "civilizations" that politically correct "Social Studies" books (they don't call themselves history and I'm glad they don't) talk about were transplanted by Arab conquerors. When the Arabs became Africanized after a few generations, the so-called civilization collapsed. The Portuguese, Dutch, British, French, and Germans all tried civilizing and developing Africa. All of the treasure and work that they poured into Africa ended up nothing. The Soviet Union tried in Somalia and Ethiopia after the end of the colonial era. Results? Well just look at Somalia. China will get the same results and learn the same lesson.

Globalisation has empowered a lot of smaller countries to make their contribution to the world's economic machine. Whether that be a sweat shop in Bangladesh making clothes for Walmart or a small farm coffee grower in Africa supplying coffee for Starbucks. It doesn't matter where you are, the all powerful corporations find a way of getting product to market these days taking advantage of cheap. It's the same with foreign policy, if you let the Chinese influence start to dominate all these smaller countries not only do they reap the benefit of cheap resources it also means less they buy less from everyone else. So who are you going to sell your coal to after that happens ?
Plus the added benefit of political influence which is even more important. Remember the paranoia of conservative America post WW2 the McCarthy era when commies were everywhere. Then the Cuban crisis in the 60's until the Berlin Wall fell. American's went to war in a bunch of foreign countries to stop the spread of communism.
Yet you say its ok, for China to start to dominate world both economically & politically because all you want to do is keep selling your coal for now. There is more to government than the price of gas & beer.

Words lifted right from the pages of white supremecist/American Nazi Party propaganda newsletters.

Ignores the great pre-Christian Egyptian civilization.

Ignores the influence of geography in the development of civilization; the Tigris-Euphrates valley, the Nile River, the Mediterranean.

Ignores the difference in cultures, size of population, trade routes.

Ignores history, as ignorance always does.

I say again, if the Chinese want to involve themselves in Africa, every encouragement to them. It will sap their strength and destroy them just like it destroyed every other power that tried.

No surprise that a coal-field dumbass is also a racist who is completely ignorant of history and anthropology, too.

Jesus..."The Portuguese, Dutch, British, French, and Germans all tried civilizing and developing Africa." That has to be one of the dumbest sentences ever written...

Typical "Politically Correct" libtard response to anyone who dares tell the truth about Africa: call them a racist.

The European colonizers tried to do the exact same thing that you say the Chinese want to do. They wanted to develop Africa in order to use its cheap labor to extract its great mineral wealth as raw materials for their home industries and turn Africans into customers for the manufactured goods that those European industries produced. The Europeans failed and the Chinese will fail for the same reasons.

With our huge national debt and all the needs that we have at home, it is idiotic for the U.S. to be pouring American taxpayers' money down an African sinkhole.

Your problem is that you AREN'T telling the truth, you're telling the European colonial story. Pretending you're telling the truth when you're lying is still just lying.

Europeans have exploited Africa for its human labor and physical resources since at least the 17th century, with help from Arabs and the Africans themselves, but they have only recently "helped develop" Africa at ALL.

Talk to "W" bout that money....

It's the 21st Century. Just because it didn't work the first few times....

Africa will be exploited again. It is one of the world's last frontiers. Hopefully, some truly independent governments can emerge to resist the power of neo-colonialism..

You picked a good name for yourself, "tha Professor." You are the personification of why the majority of ordinary Patriotic working Americans despise academic eggheads. University faculties are nothing but asylums for indoctrinated (I won't say educated) idiots, socialist holdouts who still worship at the tomb Lenin, and tree huggers who worship the great mother goddess.

You've already shown your real colors. You want to force the people of Kentucky and West Virginia off our land, out of our homes, and into urban concentration camps. You want to send the National Guard to force us to work as slaves in the mines. You said if a few of us was killed, that much the better.

Well "professor" we'd like to put all of you and all of your kind to work on an "organic" farm shoveling manure.

In December, 2006, Southern Company subsidiary Mississippi Power announced plans to construct a 600-megawatt IGCC coal fired power plant in KemperCounty in east-central Mississippi. The proposed plant would burn locally mined lignite coal, with an approximate cost of $1.8 billion. Mississippi Power has been given millions of dollars to construct the plant in federal tax credits under the Energy Policy Act of 2005.

January 28, 2013, marked Sierra Club's third trip to the Mississippi State Supreme Court regarding the Kemper coal plant fight!

Groups argued Mississippi Power’s appeal of the Public Service Commission’s denial of cost recovery before the state Supreme Court. The case centered on whether Mississippi Power should be able to charge its customers for the $3-billion Kemper County coal plant before it starts making electricity in 2014. Several groups showed up to the court united by one thing - opposition to the dirty, expensive, and unnecessary Kemper coal plant. Groups ranged from the Mississippi Tea Party, small business owners, a retired County Supervisor, Harrison County AARP, Gulfport NAACP, Kemper County Landowners, and many more.

A few days after the hearing, Mississippi Power filed a request to increase customer rates by 21%, following a settlement agreement the company signed with the Public Service Commission.

While ongoing litigation is being pursued by the Sierra Club’s Environmental Law Program, the state legislature is separately considering enacting new legislation that would allow Mississippi Power to recover an additional $1 billion dollars above and beyond the $2.88 billion dollar cost cap set by the Public Service Commission.

><><><> <><><><

"Mississippi Power has been given millions of dollars to construct the plant..." How is this any different from solar energy subsidies?

Cost of the plant was estimated at $1.4 billion. Cost is now approaching $4 billion. Is that cheap energy?

A 21% increase in electricity rates? In one of the poorest states in the nation? How fair is that to the average citizen?

The Republican-controlled legislature has done everything it it could to help and finance this plant. Something here stinks worse than coal smoke. I'm thinking there will be an investigation and people will go to jail when the dust settles.

Look what is happening in Illinois. A new plant there is about to bankrupt several surrounding towns.
