Just Do Something - New York Times

"Africans, after long years of accepting the rule of brutal and corrupt dictators, are finally dragging themselves to their feet to say, "Enough." But there are two paths they can take. (1) With help, African countries can take the route of development and progress, and finally enjoy lives that are about more than just scrounging day in and day out for food in one's stomach and shoes on one's feet. (2) Without that help, those same countries can take the path that cycles back into civil war, poverty and life expectancies so low that 13-year-old girls are considered old women."

Africans have no other choices but government handouts or civil war and poverty?

Is this for real? Does someone really get paid to think at levels so far below their maximum intelligence?
