Ethiopia: Live Aid Charity Millions Went on Arms Deals

One ex-rebel commander in Ethiopia has said that only 5% of aid money in his region reached the starving.

95% of it was used for buying arms.

That meant millions upon millions raised by Bob "just give us yer fookin' money" Geldof went on arms, to the benefit of mega-rich arms dealers.

Reminds you of the saying:

Foreign Aid:
the Poor in Rich Countries
Giving to the Rich in Poor Countries.
