Todays's Quiz


(without googling the answer)
In the Democratic Republic of the Congo
where the average income is less than
1 dollar a day
what is the cost of a
new AK-47 ?




.
Comments:
In Zaire, an AK-47 costs one chicken. The chicken has more value because you can eat it.

All this thanks to Western and post-Communist countries who had to "dump" weapons after the end of the Cold War!

However, southern African countries have banded together to stop the trade of illegal weapons, focusing most of their energy on trade of ammunition. They are making inroads.
