Tens Of Thousands Dead In Ongoing Africa

Of course, the article is from the Onion, but it is somewhat impressive in its ability to state the truth through humor

JUBA, SOUTH SUDAN—According to alarming reports from international relief agencies operating in Swaziland, Chad, the Democratic Republic of Congo, and rebel-held sections of Mali, more than 500,000 people have died so far this month from the ongoing Africa plaguing the region.

“At this point, we are unable to keep up with the flood of victims from the continuing Africa,” said World Health Organization director-general Margaret Chan, who called the current Africa the “most urgent and devastating”humanitarian disaster of our time. “By our count, this catastrophic Africa has killed more than 100 million individuals over the past 10 years, and we’re seeing thousands more—many of them helpless infants and children—succumbing to Africa by the day.”

“And unfortunately,” Chan added, “the merciless Africa shows no signs of abating.”

Africa, which affects upwards of 40 million new residents annually, has only grown more deadly over the years. According to WHO figures, many of the afflicted die from Africa or Africa-related complications before they even reach the age of 5.

Africa has always been described as a land of savages, and for most of the continent it continues to be true. From extreme body modifications including genital mutilation, to animalistic religions, to warlords and ethnic cleansing, much of Africa remains the land of savages. The only physical resource that Africa lacks is water so it isn’t for lack of resources that they don’t join the rest of civilization. Its purely the people and their tribalism that keep themselves down.
