George Bush and net distribution

Morocco is one of the first countries to recognise the Independence of the USA. Their relations date back to 1787. It is one of its strategic allies. Up to now, no American president in office has ever visited Morocco since its independence, except for Roosevelt in 1943 and Bill Clinton for the funeral of late King Hassan the Second. They visited it only when they left office as tourists. It is not included in their agenda when they make a tour of the Middle East or Africa.

Morocco has a long fishing coast rich with fish of many varieties. George Bush on his tour of Africa, offered mosquito nets. I hope that when he comes to Morocco he will offer fishermen modern fishing nets!!!!!!

Hi Abdelilah;
It's been a while.
I've been triping all around Morocco lately and I was very close to you in Marrakesh where I ate a delicious Tanjia. Our country is really beautiful, and I think it is even more so if American presidents just kept as far away as they can from our shores believe me. We don't need charity!

Thanks Hisham for your comment. It's a pity we didn't meet when you were in Morocco. I hope we can have a chance in the nearest future. I hope you've been refreshed by your visit to your home country, that I am sure, is always in your mind.

As you have noticed I made an analogy between the distribution of mosquito nets in Africa and fishing nets in Morocco just for the fun of it. Morocco in fact should have the means to act independently vis a vis all powerful countries.

All right Abdelilah and sorry I missed the ironic unertone of your post. Fifty years after independence we should surely be (if not fully) at least mostly independent by now.
As for a cup of tea in the real life... that would a great pleasure. I promise we'll make it one day. Incha'allah.
Take care!

Sure Hisham, We'll have the chance to meet one day.
