If they would quit killing each other long enough to pump the oil and grow the crops and mine the precious metals/gold, they wouldn't need a handout

"But some African leaders said their countries were more concerned about unfair trade deals than a lack of things to eat."

Shows you where their priorities are. Half the damn people on that continent are starving and they're worried about unfair trade practices.

If they don't like our trade practices, go trade with someone else. We'll keep our money and they can go try to find it somewhere else.
