Self-Flagellation

From FT.com: Hu meets match in S Africa
President Hu Jintao of China arrives in South Africa on Tuesday for the most serious and frank exchange of ideas on his 12-day tour of Africa. . . .

While South African officials are confident that today’s meeting will be extremely cordial, President Thabo Mbeki did recently warn that Africa should beware of falling into a “colonial relationship” with Africa.
"That would probably make Wolfowitz's head explode," explained Mbeki. "Besides, who wants to have Africa as a colonial dictator? Those people can't even run their own damn country!"

Yeah, the FT needs a proof reader.
