Response to On a personal note

Guys, don't get too depressed by the pyrotechnics and saturation of global news coverage of this war, you've got your own lives to live. If you do have to devote all your thoughts and energies to pain, death and misery, why not have a look at some of the other forgotten conflict zones around the rest of the world. Africa has been completely sidelined by the Iraqi situation and yet over three million have died in Congo and aids and famine continue to destroy many sub-saharan societies. Of course they don't posess easily extractable supplies of oil but still deserve a modicum of our attention.
