Barbara Ehrenreich - When the Somalians were merely another hungry third world people, we sent them guns. Now that they are falling down dead from starvation, we send them troops. Some may see in this a tidy metaphor for the entire relationship between north and south. But it would make a whole lot more sense nutritionally - as well as providing infinitely more vivid viewing - if the Somalians could be persuaded to eat the troops.
