Actually, it's civil war, the legacy of colonialism, boundary disputes,
political instability, tribal and interfaith infighting, cash cropping,
natural disasters, and funding of terrorist/militia/rebel/state-sanctioned
thug groups by foreign investors.  You can't just replace one reductive
variable like "meat" with another one like "socialism" and expect to produce
a decent analysis.
