EU and Aids The old

EU and Aids
The old saying is "Put your money where your mouth is". That is exactly what GWB did with his AIDS pledge. He shifted the attention to the EU where Bono and Geldof think the EU should match our 1 billion pledge. It seems that the EU can't hack it because of "budget problems". We all have budget problems.
I love this quote:

Lucy Matthew, director of Data Europe, said: "Europe's leaders don't want America to dictate the world's agenda, but they're unwilling to pay the price of leadership themselves on this. They can't accept the sheer gravity of the Aids emergency because collectively they don't want to pay the bill.

Bush has showed them up for what they are, all talk and no action.
Current Song: One - U2 (No I didn't plan it that way, just lucky I guess)
