FAO Quotables

"But being right, even morally right, isn't everything. It is also important to be competent, to be consistent, and to be knowledgeable. It's important for your soldiers and diplomats to speak the language of the people you want to influence. It's important to understand the ethnic and tribal divisions of the place you hope to assist."
-Anne Applebaum

One video that shows why illegal fishing is one of the biggest problems in Africa

This video shows succintly why Africa (specifically West Africa) needs maritime security.  The livelyhood and future of many of these poor countries such as Sierra Leone are literally being robbed on a daily basis. 
    This is just one reason programs such as APS (Africa Partnership Station) have the capability to be a transformative force in Africa.
