  1. Now you see Mr.King, we have as a poor country must welcome the help from other rich
    Countries, simply because they realize that we as a poor Country need the help, savvy?
    In the world we live in today, the rich Countries can boast that they are able to help others
    and it looks good on their resume' both at home and at the U.N. So don't criticize our asking.
