Nah. "Whole region"
Close enough. Would have solved a lot of problems

View attachment 7113813

If earth was the setting for a sci-fi/cyberpunk/dystopian future game or novel, the entire MENA region would be appropriately named "the Outback". A haven and paradise for bandits, mercenaries, black market privateers, and traders meeting to discuss the sale of stolen battlemech blueprints...

the Congo is one of the most mineral resource rich nations in the entire world

the Portuguese and then the Belgian "settlers" destroyed that country for 3-4 hundred years starting about 1600

they were not only sold away as slaves but used as salves on their own land, in some of the most brutal conditions ever (actual and imposed) under the belgians

around 1960 there was a uprising like most european nations and their colonies after WWII

the belgians ran out at top speed and left not even of spec of government or law in tact

because the conganese people/black people could not vote they could not hold govt positions
its said that there was not one certified doctor, lawyer or engineer for several years after they ran for their lives

the material for Hiroshima and Nagasaki bombs was taken from the eastern side of the country

it has been a absolute disaster ever since

...And in other news today...

And lately...

I think the Open Borders folks are engaging directly in Bio Warfare against the USA.

Nothing less, and purely malicious.

And the Dems insist there's no emergency.

70% mortality rate... That is a much more virulent strain than the one which devastated West Africa in 2014. That one had a 30-40%.

And the Congo strain has now spread to dense urban centers too. Urban centers=airports and rapid travel. Not good at all...

Anyone ever seen a fat Somolian?

There is an old joke from Stalin era Ukraine: If people saw a heavy or fat man, they will be rightfully scared to death of him. Only cannibals can get that fat or maintain weight in that environment. I think it was mentioned in a documentary about Russia's worst serial killer...

The current President of Somalia 'Mohamed Abdullahi Mohamed' took office in 2017, Promised them lots of goodies but we all know how that will end.

They werent countries actually. The nation state to most of the world is a new idea. The united states is an older country than most all other countries in th he world.
