Far on terror
True development can kill terror
21/08/2008

The equation has become simple in the new age of terrorism between the developed and least developed world. You either help or face the consequences for not helping. BBC, CNN et al speculated that global terrorist organisations like Al-Qaeda have entered into the diamond trade in Africa, which exemplifies that Africa is becoming prime concern for global security. Ironically, many countries like Ghana, Senegal, Mali and Benin are witnessing GDP growth but not able to eliminate hunger, poverty. While these factors remain rampant in the world’s poorest continent, they’ve become the critical weapons for terrorist recruiters.

While the US has invested over $22 billion in the Iraq and Afghanistan wars, for development assistance, it has contributed less than $15 billion per year globally. Any small help for Africa’s socio-economic development by US would help it in the long run, as researchers predict that US can not only meet 25% of its energy requirements from Africa, but can also gain from Africa’s growing population and emerging trade position. The saying is apt – An idle mind is a devil’s workshop; a poor and hungry one, a terrorist’s.
