YET another example of the schizofrenic development path we are choosing as a nation – apparently the South Africa auto industry is all set to build those gas-guzzling, HUMMERS. Symbol of American stupidity and the real cause behind the Iraq War. Estimates are you need to invade at least one foreign nation a year, just to keep the metal beast in fuel for what is probably the most inefficient machine ever designed by a human being.
No wonder Mbeki is considered the lapdog of Shell in Ogoniland and other parts of the Big Mac Empire. News just out, the entire world will run out of fuel sometime in 2010 as our one person-per-car policy creates global instablity.
