    Even though the debt cancellation is a good thing,Africa owes nothing to any continent on this entire planet. Alkebulan was basically raped along side the Americas. The only difference is that Africa was left out to dry and play "catch up" with the rest of the world while the USA was being founded and turned into one of the worlds largets capitalist regimes.

    I dont like using the word raped but pillage and robbery are still happening at this very minute to Africa and its people. Over half of Africa wealth defined by foreigners sits off shore in one of the many banking houses we do business with everyday. That is an alarming situation.

    And yes seems like Russia should stand up and do the right thing even if it get blacklisted by other prominent G8 nations. This happening at all seems very remote.
