The Cannibal Warlords of Liberia (Full Length Documentary)

Published on Jun 13, 2012
VICE travels to West Africa to rummage through the messy remains of a country ravaged by 14 years of civil war. Despite the United Nation's eventual intervention, most of Liberia's young people continue to live in abject poverty, surrounded by filth, drug addiction, and teenage prostitution. The former child soldiers who were forced into war have been left to fend for themselves, the murderous warlords who once led them in cannibalistic rampages have taken up as so-called community leaders, and new militias are lying in wait for the opportunity to reclaim their country from a government they rightly mistrust.

The most hurtful thing is issues like this get swept under the carpet,Bosnia,Armenia,Rwanda had to lose so many lives before it captured any "news value". The more infighting in countries like these, the weaker their states become on a domestic and international front. That way, those supplying the weapons from the Western world and getting the concessions stay on top. My heart goes out to those who needlessly lost their lives for greed and the myopic vision of 21stcentury Slavers
