AP: Somalia famine aid stolen, UN investigating

QUOTE: "Sacks of grain, peanut butter snacks and other food staples meant for starving Somalis are being stolen and sold in markets, an Associated Press investigation has found, raising concerns that thieving businessmen are undermining international famine relief efforts in this nearly lawless country."

What's the takeaway from this?  Perhaps how things might work if/when things are plunged into lawlessness.  Those who are planning on the .GOV to take care of their needs are deluding themselves.  Even if the authorities want to the "Law of the Jungle" often is how things end up working, it would seem.
