The invisible war again. posted by Richard Seymour
Another thousand killed, hundreds of thousands of refugees, shells falling on Mogadishu. The dead rot in the streets. Medical infrastructure at breaking point. And the new UN head makes his pro-empire mark by advocating a 'coalition of the willing' for Somalia, to keep the US-backed warlords in place. A thousand deaths in a week is quite a strong showing for this sub-theatre of the 'war on terror': if it goes on like this, the carnage in Iraq could face some stiff competition.
