Chasing Marx in Somalia

A good friend's gifted Cuban comic book about the Ogaden war, and a collection of images from Kismayo's war ruins sent us on a spiral into images and words about Cuba, Socialism and Somalia, and the complicated history of socialism in Somalia, and Fidel's role in the fight for greater Somalia. No long winded analysis here, that part is for you. Just sound interesting soundbites, images, and quotes.
