Response to Re: AUSTRALIA HAS SUCEEDED IN MAKING PNG A FAILED NATION
Guys, Australia has far more better and important things to worry about in the world than little old PNG. Papua New Guinea has had every little chances in the world to make it big but hasn't... get it? The people who took over from the Australian "masters", did not know what they were doing... oh they thought they knew how, but they didn't... incompetent idiots! So, this is where we are now. Don't try blaming the white man for your own incompetence... they left 30 years ago and this meant we had 30 years to prove ourselves.
Ever tried checking to see how many of our leaders have Swiss accounts, private islands overseas, etc. The point is, they take and divert public money and get away with it. How many people are now in jail over the Sand Line deal? The Bouganville Mine issue could have been better solved and managed and everyone would have benefited. Instead, we had a 10 year civil war and lost the mine in the process. Corruption and misappropriation of funds become normal words to the ears and no one gets penalized for the daylight robbery... and you blame Australia for our state of affairs?
The Asians are now running the backstage for the country... and whose fault is that? We sit back and let other people worry about how things are run and if things go wrong we wake up and wonder where we are... for goodness shakes if anyone in here is so worried about our country as a sinking ship which it is... now is the time to do something. Don't wait another five to ten years and then look back at today as a good time then.
