Starvation in Niger

According to the AP Wire, thousands of children are starving in Niger (Nigeria?) in West Africa. However, I would not trust the United Nations, perpetrator of the Oil-for-food scandal, to make any genuine effort to repair the damage that they could've prevented years before.

In fact, there's something very fishy in their report:
"A 16-ton shipment of oil, sugar, and nutritional paste arrived in Maradi from France on Thursday, and several more shipments were scheduled, the U.N. World Food Program said.

But the need is great and growing in this desert nation of 11.3 million regularly ranked among the world's least developed. When the first appeal was made, only $1 per day, per person would have helped solve the food crisis, the U.N. has said. Now that the situation has worsened and people are weaker, $80 will be needed per person."
Pardon me? It wouldn't have gotten worse, had the UN not been so otherwise negligent, and the press so otherwise ignorant, of the crisis in Niger. Don't let the Associated Pinheads fool you. This negligence by the UN of the plight of innocent Africans has been going on for years already, and they could've taken genuine steps to stop the starvation and poverty in African countries like Niger if they wanted to - but they didn't. They could've prevented even the slavery and genocide in Rwanda and Sudan if they wanted to, but didn't do a genuine thing about those problems there either.

And the mainstream press, including the AP, is also to blame for crises like these, because they too ignored them when they could've paid attention to and given press coverage of the horrors that were going on, but tragically...they didn't.
