I joined the 'International Club' where students from other countries mixed with locals. This was my very first experience of realpolitik. Seared in my memory is the statement from one of these paragons or political virtue:-
"I am coming here to get a fine education Man, so that I can go back home and steal my countrymen blind."
He was not joking or being flippant. Likely he has long ago been assassinated but his progeny live on, it seems.
It is not coincidence that most of the world's flash points are run by people just like this guy.
With no apologies to hand wringing PC leftists, have a quick look through the list and you will see most of the ' leaders' of these tropical or desert shit holes are either black bastards or Islamists. ALL are corrupt crooks and despots who seem to have no shortage of money for weapons.
Fifty years ago, naively we trained them.
