African AIDS and Bush Bull….

By Reggie of TV News Lies

Yesterday Tanzania, today Ghana…..six days to create a desperate legacy. What a farce.

The establishment media has hailed Bush’s whirlwind tour as successful promotion of his contribution to combating AIDS in many African nations. This is another case of both media and government deception and distortion. My latest article can be found by using the link to Reggie’s Commentary on the editorial menu at the top of our newly formatted home page:

It begins :

AFRICAN AIDS AND US BULL…..

It is a last legacy lap for George W. Bush, as he traipses through five African nations in six days, touting his great initiatives to combat HIV/AIDS, malaria and poverty in the ravished nations of Africa. One has to wonder what in the world he has to boast about.

For the record, it is important to understand that the 2003 President’s Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR) allotted 15 billion dollars to be spent globally over a five year period. to prevent 7 million new infections, treat 2 million people living with AIDS related illnesses, and provide care and support for 10 million persons affected by AIDS.

For the record as well, consider that in Sub-Saharan Africa alone, nearly 23 million people are victims of this pandemic.

And understand that the Bush war machine spends more than that the entire PEPFAR budget every month and a half to sustain its occupation of Iraq….

…But, as usual, the devil is in the details. The largely unreported story is that the Bush HIV/AIDS policy is a devastating failure motivated by right wing religious ideology.
