Hand in Mouth: National Security, food and Doha

The question really is, instead of wasting time and resources on trade deals that will always find some loop hole within which to screw developing countries, why don't we focus on developing infrastructure for regional trade-so that Africans for instance, can trade amongst themselves? Why don't we focus on increasing the capacity of African farmers to meet the huge demand for food on their continents and supplement their efforts with aid money instead of importing American wheat few of us will ever have the heart to eat?
