This CNN video from the USA is about the Ethiopian-Somalian war.
Photo essay of Time magazine from the USA:
Ethiopia‘s Harvest of Hunger
In spite of its fertile farmland, the African nation still teeters on the brink of starvation
The cover story of Time, August 14, 2008, is Ethiopia’s Harvest of Hunger.
It points out of some of the paradoxes about the famine in Ethiopia. Like, this year, there is no drought in Ethiopia. However, people have no money to buy the food; while prices rise. Probably it would be expecting too much to expect from Time a thorough criticism of the capitalist “free market” system here. Indeed; there isn’t in the article.
I searched in vain for “Bush” and “war”. Somalia was mentioned just once; in this paragraph:
The U.N. estimates that 14 million people urgently need food aid, including 2.6 million in Somalia and more than 1 million in Kenya. In Ethiopia, 4.6 million people are at risk, and 75,000 children have severe acute malnutrition.
The Time article forgets(?) to mention a very important cause why millions of Somalians and Ethiopians are now threatened by death from starvation: the war on Somalia, which the Ethiopian dictatorship, egged on and helped by George W. Bush, started. Meaning invasion and destruction for Somali civilians; and, in Ethiopia, spending most of the budget, which otherwise might have saved civilian lives, on bloody military adventures.
