The "War on Terror" and Africa’s Worst Humanitarian Crisis

04-01-2008 15:25

If Darfur can be classified as a place of genocide, then surely Somalia, which United Nations observers call "the worst humanitarian crisis in Africa," fits the same bill. But the U.S. and its allies are the cause of Somalia's nightmare - and so, the world is largely mute.
