    Default 150 missing after immigrants boat sinks in Mediteranean

    http://www.timesofmalta.com/articles...-mediterranean

    A total of 49 immigrants have been rescued and 20 bodies have been recovered so far in the Central Mediterranean as the search goes on for migrants missing after their boat, carrying 200 people capsized off Lampedusa.
    Pretty damn sad thing. And a reminder about huge problem we`re having in Italy and Greece.

    To these migrants, its get into Europe or die. This will go on until Africa is even remotely better.

    I have sympathy with the dead and their families but putting your life into the hands of people smugglers is excessively adventurest.

    @victis honor. The present surge of migrants know little of colonial times and see Europe in a positive light, the yoke of oppression they are familiar with is the one of their corrupt governments.

    Yes, until they get to Europe, get on the welfare system and start screaming for more entitlements and accomodations for their "culture".

    Don't they have their stories/history handed down to the kids to tell their kids? I guess I'm saying I doubt they are ignorant of the past, they may not have gone through the experience themselves, but usually stories (their version of history, whomever they may be ,usually viewing the opposition in a demonizing/negative light (accurate or not)) are often handed down to the younger generation.

    Ye, they will die in back in Africa. They have no money for food because they mobile phones cost too much and they spend thousands of $ to get to Europe. Sure.

    Many from the former French and British colonies actually now believe things were much better way back before the now universal cronyism and corruption that passes for African governance. Fair enough they don't want us ruling them but they seem to believe that the present circumstances are somewhat lacking and maybe the old days were not so bad after all.

    My point is you corrected the member victis honors' observation of irony, by saying 'not so' cause they don't know about that, they were'nt alive, they only know the current times (the gist not actual words). I mearly commented on all the years of demonization (true or not) handed down to younger generations (to explain/blame for all the current woes/situation) that does not just simply vanish. Now you say they had a change of heart. So the irony is there, but you had to defend/excuse them (i felt). Oh well, really not important.

    1970 "the white devils are stealing our stuff, out with them"
    2011 "We are starving, can we come to your country?"

    I understand that colonial leaders did not treat the natives well, but their racist treatment is nothing compared to what Africans will do to each other. Now they try to leave their countries and go to Europe. Go to Venice and get haggled by Mr. Africa who wants to sell you fake gucci ****.
    I respect one country in west Africa, Ghana.

    Why is that? I am asking because I was offered a job once as a hotel manager in Ghana, and turned it down.
