Two Presidents and a “Manto”

I started writing this with the intention of poking fun at stupid politicians. But when I saw the power that these idiots had over life and death, I become angry.

The United States of America is a very rich and very powerful nation. The president of the USA wields a lot of power and influence through out the world. There are checks and balances in place to avoid him misusing his power, but it is his signature on the big decisions.

The 43rd President of the United States, George Bush had the reputation on not being very bright .  I cannot comment on comment on this, certainly the Internet is full of his Dumb Quotes. However he had access to Nuclear Weapons. If you want to see want to understand just what this can mean read Tom Clancy’s The Sum of All Fears . Scary, how a misunderstanding could have destroyed the world!

Another idiot, closer to home, was Manto Tshabalala-Msimang. Not only did she embarrass South Africa in the eyes of the world, she was responsible for the deaths of many. As a doctor, she should done everything in her power to cure the sick and dying.I agree that I healthy diet is part of cure for any illness, but medicine need to be available to those who need it.

We all know Manto was following President Mbeki’s Ideas on Aids, but as a Doctor she should have stood up to him. She did not stand up to him and people died.

Which brinks us to the other President. His views on aids were proved to be wrong, time and time again, but he refused to listen and accept that he was wrong. So South Africa became a laughing stock and more people got infected and others died.  Thankfully, the ANC saw reason and fired Mbeki and Manto, but the damage was done.

i have come the conclusion that Politicians are not just Idiots, they are Evil. (with the odd exception or two!)
