Yeah, it's pretty bad over there. I've never really understood how the entire middle and southern part of the continent can be so messed up for so long. I guess their leaders really just don't care about anything other than their own personal gain over there. Several movies like Hotel Rwanda (yes, I'm aware that they aren't to be used as factual references, but the idea is basically the same) and news reports over the years have made me question the sanity of pretty much anyone in power over there. Seems like the poor are screwed - they have extremely limited healthcare, they can't get educated, and there's nothing to do with an education even if they do get one, because there's zero infrastructure since it's all being blown up in tribal wars. Ugh.
