They should buy land for the refugees to farm and wind tubines that condense water from the air.

All well and good to criticize aid programs. Doubtless they need reform, but what would conditions be like without them?

As a side note, rarely does one of your guests use "I" and "me" as much as this one. For someone who claims to focus on helping others, her language points squarely back at herself.
