The most recent African Stimulus Package:
Congo Approves Economic Stimulus Package Of AK-47 For Every Citizen | The Onion - America's Finest News Source
"He went on two legs, wore clothes and was a human being, but nevertheless he was in reality a wolf of the Steppes. He had learned a good deal . . . and was a fairly clever fellow. What he had not learned, however, was this: to find contentment in himself and his own life. The cause of this apparently was that at the bottom of his heart he knew all the time (or thought he knew) that he was in reality not a man, but a wolf of the Steppes."
"Who is to say that I am not an instrument of karma? Indeed, who is to say that I am not the very hand of God himself, dispatched by the Almighty to smite the Philistines and hypocrites, to lay low the dishonest and corrupt, and to bust the jawbone of some jackass that so desperately deserves it?"
I think as far as a stimulus package goes, and promoting liberty, the concept is not without merrit. Clearly not in the context of the video though, that was just funny.
But for us it would need to be American weapons, not the AKs.
Walk softly ...
I think this would be an excellent program for the Congo. The average citizen is terrorized by teenagers with guns, rebels with guns, criminals with guns, police/soldiers with guns, and anyone with guns. It would level the playing field.
If this is from the Onion, then it is most likely a satire piece.

Some countries just are never able to get it together. The Congo made constant headlines as a surrogate battleground in the cold waar when I was a teen 50 years back, and there has NEVER been real political stability in that sad place since.
I'm truly sad when I watch poor people in poor places spending money on weapons and bullets instead of business and agricultural investment.
