It would be important first to explain, very slowly and patiently (seeing
as Bush is reputed to have a fantastic IQ) that I understand and appreciate

of no positive economic and security consequence to Africa, the situation
would have to wait until we in Africa invented enough time and a special
lens for this sort of short.
