I haven't commented about very much recently, but I must say I think it is a disgrace that Somalia can be undergoing such a serious famine whilst Saudi Arabia, the land of profligacy and excess, is so close to it. Somalia is one of those countries that intrigue me, what with the fact that it has never been a proper country, the levels of piracy on its coastlines and the interminable civil war and countless militias and warlords that keep emerging. I was told by a friend of mine who had been to Kenya that Kenyans despise Somali refugees, sometimes speeding up their cars as if to run them over if spotted. What a tragedy.
