Bush Calls for Changes in Africa to End Wars and Promote Trade. President Bush demanded Liberia's leader step down, called for change in Zimbabwe and for the dispatching of an envoy to Sudan. By Richard W. Stevenson. [New York Times: NYT HomePage]

David Remer of PoliWatch.Org comments:

Now that headline just about sums up compassionate conservatism, doesn't it? President Bush calls for an end to African wars, not because men, women, and children are killed, abducted, raped and tortured, but, because, the U.S. needs someone to trade with to keep its economy afloat. He is going to regret those tax cuts to his wealthy compatriots, I do believe, since the African's are too busy to just stop what they are doing and follow President Bush's requests. I can hear Bush now, "If you people would just be more like us Americans and stop all this fussing, you will be much better off as capitalists." And the African's response, "We don't have capital to be capitalists with, want to lend us some?"
