Re "Mercenaries, Not Musicians, for Africa," Commentary, July 7
Once in a great while, Max Boot actually makes some sense. The problem of providing aid to Africa is the horribly corrupt supply chain. Foreign aid to Africa mostly makes corrupt leaders more rich and powerful. Less than pennies on the dollar actually reach the people in need, and a better solution is indeed regime change. What Boot failed to point out, however, is that our current administration has wasted our regime change goodwill on Iraq, where it has been futile, instead of Africa, where we actually could have gained world support and done some good.
