On the day american army forsook Somalia an italian TV journalists,
travelling in Mogadiscio with an armed convoy of Somaliafruit, an
italian-somal company trading bananas, was killed by a rival groups tied
american company Dole; a survived journalist
denounced the ambush confirmed by a movie of U.S. army. THe killers were
recognized like men tied Dole but they can be tried only if coming in Italy
while the company has been considered no-responsable but now we know like
struggles in Somalia is still
a neo-colonialist economical struggle between challengers multinationals.
Another italian TV journalist was killed in Somalia investigating upon
weapons international traffic under false co-operation with third world
using ships which officially carried alimentary goods.
Dirty news from a dirty world.
I thing is good for the list better understanding the reasons of failure of
revolutionary marxist movments in Africa; some interesting analysises has
been written by Samir Amin.
