No food

Food, clothing and shelter are considered the most basic of human needs.  Of these, food and water are considered a must for mere survival.  Now the rest of all human wants and needs are additional, in this sense.

The case in South Sudan is very weird.  There is civil war raging for years now.  There is also extreme famine that is plaguing the population.  What I really don't understand is how come a nation has arms and ammunition but no food?  That means the country in investing the little it has in purchasing ammunition.  If it is not, there are people supplying it for an exchange.  Either way, guns and ammunition and knives are far readily available than essential commodities.

If only those supplying or selling arms could start distributing food and essentials, they'd atleast be people still living.  Collectively the war and famine, will certainly leave no one alive!
