Now war is exclusively an occupation for the poor adone. There are, the commentators tell us, thirty wars in progress in the world. They are taking place — where? In the world’s remote, resourceless, unproductive places: in Bosnia, the poorest part of Europe, in the Caucasus, the poorest part of the old Soviet Union, in Cambodia, one of the poorest parts of Asia, in Angola, Mozambique, Somalia, Rwanda, some of the poorest parts of a Continent by definition poor. War, once a struggle over riches, or the proud vocation of the rich themselves, is now the calling of the wretched of the earth.
