"Poverty Harvest at CancГєn

Will the Hate America Firsters even notice this body blow to the 3rd world by their socialist buds?:

'Rather than tackling the problem of their high agricultural tariffs and lavish farm subsidies, which victimize farmers in poorer nations, a number of rich nations derailed the WTO talks.

The failure by 146 trade delegates to reach an agreement in Mexico is a serious blow to the global economy. And contrary to the mindless cheering with which the breakdown was greeted by antiglobalization protesters at CancГєn, the world's poorest and most vulnerable nations will suffer most.

It is a bitter irony that the chief architects of this failure were nations like Japan, Korea and European Union members, themselves ads for the prosperity afforded by increased global trade. '
