Darfur and Ms Palin Issues Beyond Palo Alto, posted by Alice Smith, a resident of the Green Acres neighborhood, on Oct 6, 2008 at 10:06 am
In today's Huffington Post, the following article Web Link
shows that Ms Palin is an opportunist without real moral fibre. She did NOT support disinvestment in Sudan in 2006 and 2007 despite considerable political pressure, and only when it was politically opportunistic of her in 2008 did she change. Her representations in the debate once more have been shown to be wrong.
At yesterday's protest outside the Hyatt in Burlingame, some of the signs were apposite: Wink, Wink, No think.

Ah, yes, Disinvestment. How did that work in South Africa? American companies complying with the Sullivan Principles of bringing Blacks into management were replaced by Asian fire sale buyers who had no interest in such social engineering.

The Chinese have been dealing diplomatically with African nations, negotiating contracts to provide infrastructure and cash in exchange for natural resource exploitation. In the meantime, Bush and company have been galloping around the world, wrecking alliances, starting wars, and creating general ill will. Africa is becoming a vassal of China because nobody else has offered a better solution.
