The new African initiative is an admission by the European socialists of their failed policies toward Africa since World War II. They are directly responsible for giving Africa to blood-thirsty Amins, Nyereres, Machels, and Mugabes. These AK-47 dictators put large chunks of public and private economies into their own pockets, while the countries and people become poorer and poorer. Until the European socialists admit that they have blood on their faces, no new initiative is going to work.
