This is about the Jacques Diouf interview. He, and people like him are the problem in regards to the problem of the world's hungry. The United States, and numerous other "rich" countries have donated billions, if not trillions of dollars and assistance to the needy over the past decades. We even sent Peace Corps and missionary volunteers all over the world, only to have some of them raped, killed, or ran out of the area by the dispotic governments or rebels. My county of Santa Barbara is broke, my state of California is broke, the United States is broke. We cannot give anymore aid that is usually pissed away, stolen by the government, insiders, and rebels. Once we get our house in order, (if we can), then we may continue to aid others. The WHO could set up solar and wind power grids and water pumping stations to assist peoples in growing crops and breeding livestock. But who will maintain the grids, or protect them from the "bad" people who do not want their people to move ahead? And the "bad" people will probably raid any productive farm. We have given them seed, livestock, tools, fertilizer, soil ammendments, and equipment in the past....but for what? No Jacques, you are part of the problem, and should resign. And please, don't pursue a higher office. The people need to chart their own course after being given a final round of basic aid in order to provide for themselves. Who knows.....in the near furture the peoples of the "used to be rich" countries will be asking them how they survive from day to day on scraps, and little clean water.

Thank you for this opportunity to express my opinion.
