We didn't give it our best effort, because if we did, our opponents in the international scene would use
our actions as ample fodder for all sorts of negative PR about us. Not only that but the people in
Africa do NOT want our best efforts, since that also means that we will be expecting THEIR best effort.
No more skimming, scamming, pillaging, and all the other easy ways to make a buck any more.
