Tsunami in Africa

Here's a reminder that the tsunami affected Africa. Like everything else, no one cares about the consequences for Africa. In all the news on the tsunami, you heard virtually nothing about Africa. Maybe it was because there are no tourists in Somalia. Maybe it was because since Somalia is the libertarian paradise and thus has no government, it wasn't very feasible to get journalists there. But maybe both of these are symptoms of the greatest problem which is that no one cares about Africa. What do you think the response to AIDS would be if it was concentrated someone else other than Africa?
