State-building III [NYT]
"It is madness to arrest commercial farmers in the middle of a drought when they could grow food to save people from starvation," said Andrew S. Natsios, administrator of the United States Agency for International Development....

The problem is, the most severely affected country is the country that is being the least cooperative," Mr. Natsios said.

So, is it resistance to our grain, or the eviction of white farmers that inspired this latest foray into state-building? Lord knows, Mugabe is a bad man, but why does it seem like there's something self-serving about this?
