The Real “Dirty Wars” in the Horn of Africaby Thomas C. Mountain | “250,000 dead in Somalia from starvation equals 10,000 dying a month, 300 or more dying a day on average.” When award winning journalist Jeremy Scahill landed at Mogadishu’s International Airport in the summer of 2011 Somalia was in the midst of its worst drought and famine in 60 years.
