Cancun: the rich say "fuck the poor"

The WTO talks at Cancun have collpased due to the unwillingness of the US and EU to give any ground on agriculture. Rather than allowing developing and least developed nations achieve better living standards through trade, they have said "fuck the poor" and condemned them to more years of dependence and poverty. Which is pretty much what I expected, but its still disappointing.
