Did you know the Arab League represents a fifth of the 53 African Union countries?
Libya is hosting the African Union get together.
Libya's Gaddafi says Africa should "stop begging" and Nigeria's Obasanjo reckons that "rich nations should repay money looted in the past by corrupt African leaders and deposited in the West - funds believed to be worth tens of billions of dollars".
See that? One is calling for some sort of independence, however crackpot in its thinking, and the other is blaming whitey for blacky's own corruption, and demanding money!!
And no one there, but no one, is addressing Mugabe's Zimbabwe.
Orunno what to make of all this.
