Mozambique disaster, where do we stand? (3)
BBC is doing a splendid job on its Internet site covering the floods
in southern Africa. We are also raising the troubling questions about
the lack of Western response on our website at:
President Clinton should have dispatched the fleet in the Persian
Gulf and Mediterranean Sea to get down there with helicopters and
help out, and then should have tasked the US Air Force to start fly-
ing round-robin mercy missions using C5A, C17 and C141 strategic air-
lift transport aircraft to start bringing in supplies, rescue work-
ers, boats etc. to help out. Recently, Clinton told a largely Afri-
can-American audience at the National Summit on Africa in Washington
that "Africa matters", to which we responded, "How much?" The answer
is clearly "not that much."
