It's a hotbed region where people and animals are just not safe. Greed is not good.

The Ethiopian government (like just about every other one over the last 40 years) knows that it can use and abuse its citizens anyway it likes and if there is a famine the West will step in with AID without a word of censure. At the same time India has bred its massive population to a point where arable land is a scarcity. With its new found industries and wealth India can exploit the people of Ethiopia through both countries ruthless politicians. No doubt somewhere along the way the EU, US, Russia, China, Iran or N Korea will step in with arms deals when the country erupts into another civil war.

Get ready for this to happen in America if the XL Keystone pipeline is approved. It's already going on in Texas.
Frackers are already doing as well

With increasing population and decreasing resources this kind of thing is bound to get worse unless we all come to our senses and stop abusing this planet and its poor people, or soon it may be our turn to suffer.
