Wow!!! What happened? Two thirds of what I wrote is gone. Thanks again. Short version from memory since I cant post links, videos or imbed URLs is this. Locust in Africa and India and Pakistan have a natural predator in the Black Winged Pratincole. A group of African-American Aviculturist wishing to help African agriculture survive locust plagues agreed to breed and transport large numbers of this species of bird to their farms for a return of their initial investment with no strings attached and they were summarily dismissed by the African leadership from a number of nations. So much for cooperation and acceptance of assistance from the Diaspora in United States. We actually have a African Diaspora here in Germany. Well I do wish the African farmers good luck. Maybe Monsanto will send them terminator birds.

Its troubling that help was rejected, but maybe the number of locusts, which appear to be of biblical proportion, makes it a moot point.

The assistance offer was not now to address this latest locust plague but was back in the early two thousands when Monsanto's Terminator Seed Project also termed Traitor Technology targeting not only Africa but Haiti as well as India also was discovered to be in violation of the 1996 GURT agreement. African-American Aviculurist felt that what they had to offer would have a much greater chance at naturally diminishing the locust population yet not upset Africa's delicate ecosystem and the farmers would not have to resort to short term lab produced fixes to produce more agricrops using a genetically modified product of limited use would. Greed pays but greed also kills.
