I agree, it's a travisty. This doesn't mean things aren't being done though.
The left media is focused on Bush right now and anything he touches, right or wrong. Their agenda isn't exactly unbiased to the rest of the worlds issues.

Left media? Like fox is this campaigning news network attempting to educate people. Of course the media is not interested in civil wars in Africa or earthquakes in Iran. Fox would get no viewers if they showed stuff that Americans where not involved in. And it's the same for every other countries news broadcasts.

Agreed but the majority of network media is left of center. If it doesn't bash Bush, it's not news.

The G8 have made Africa the top priority and already Tony Blair and Gordon Brown have talked and visited African leaders to debate on ways of cutting debt and promoting education etc

As for the Tsuanim in Africa from what I can remeber deaths in that area were low and damage was minimal compared to the Asian region therefore countries like Indonesia must take top priority.

Blair has a habit of making brash loud annoucements, which tend to shine a big light on him, showing himself as the great historical statesman he sees himself as.

How long ago was it he announced that Africa is a scar on the world's conscience, 5, 6 years ago? What's happened since? Anyone recall a couple of years ago, the puzzling sale of an air traffic control system, costing millions of pounds, Britain sold to one of the poorist countries in Africa - and they didn't even have any planes. Taking money from corrupt African goverments does not sound like Labour have Africa's best interest at heart. Still business is business.

10 years from now will thousands of Africans still be dying from easily preventable deseases because of intectual property rights that don't allow cheap drugs to be produced in the developing world, and famine and poverty because we dump our cheap excess produce onto the third world in the name of free market economics while stilll subsidising our own farmers?

Still, Bono is on Blair's case so who knows, this time the rich G8 nations might actually do more than talk.
