The first article on what is happening in Somalia is worrisome for all East Africans. Since 74 Ugandans were murdered by the Islamists, I make sure that I stay away from any recognisable crowds of people.Am lucky to be an atheist because I don't have the urge to worship in a mosque or church. For me, it's a little difficult to feel too much sympathy for those who get blown up while attending mosque or church.
Burundi is thoroughly corrupt--and they have troops in Somalia. Uganda is a little less corrupt (at least that's what the article implies), and Uganda has troops in Somalia. Personally I do not think that Burundi is more corrupt than Uganda.
More and more people are speaking out against the drug war. I may not live to see the end of the drug war, but I'm living to see the beginning of the end. It may take another 30 years to complete this change by abolishing the U.S. Drug Enforcement Agency.
