    i think its worth pointing out that the people in these pictures are, in fact, black.

    Lawl, all I can think of is that it reminds me of the start of a round of Savage: Battle for Newerth with all the nomads with hunting bows charging the beasts.

    I wish i could fly over there with a helicopter, jump out with an AK-47 in each hand, wearing the exosceleton from Crysis, and start blowing them away.

    Just to see the look on their faces

    Screw that, strafe with an Apache Longbow...modern warfare bitches!


    Its really amazing to remind oneself in such a way how primitively many people still live.

    We waltz around with our mobile phones and our hybrid cars and perhaps a cutting edge bit of medical kit or whatever, communicate via a magical net around the world of information, high powered computers and vast and sky reaching urban centres yet a couple of thousand miles somewhere else people are stilling living in mud and shit huts living in their little tribal groupings living their little tribal politics and spiritual beliefs fighting over little tribal issues and going to tribal wars with little bows and arrows and spears.

    Crazy.

    Alert! Our last control point is being captured!

    Seriously though, I don't see any of them with any semblance of shield. Are they insane? Would that not absolutely shift the balance of power for something like this?

    I don't understand why they are wearing blue jeans and blazers yet still using bows and arrows.

    Kenya, until recently, has had a fairly stable government since indipendence and a fairly strong government, so modern firearms arn't particularly common in the hands of non-government groups.

    I guess I'm the only one who thinks this is ****ing awesome? Those guys are badasses.

    Yeah, have fun firing on a very dispersed group and be lucky to hit half a dozen (or less if you're going akimbo ak47 which is just ridiculous) before they all find cover.

    I think its worth pointing out that the people in these pictures are, in fact, in Kenya, not Kenia.

    Looks like those guys are playing Cowboys and Indians. Except both sides uses bows and arrows, and the consequence of failure is death.

    Also I think it is better they have bows and arrows. Don't want these guys killing each other en masse with AK 47s'.

    It's equally amazing how pointless and mundane your life has become because of all that.

    Sounds more like a decision to fight old fashion for traditions sake rather than a lack of modern equipment imo

    That looks so fun. :|

    I say we give them compound bows with sights so they can kill with precision.

    I don't understand the (lol) in the title, this isn't really a laughing matter at all.

    People are dieing, and I'm sure most of those arrow-related deaths aren't instant.

    i'm willing to bet the US has more people "living in poverty" but its all relative to what "poverty" really means. our poorest would probably be their middle class. globalization can only help these people in the long run

    You know why this is funny? Because it's retarded, and it's not about the loacation.



    If this happened in the US with white people, I'd bet people would laugh at this as well.

    In the words of Colonel Coetzee: "TIA."

    I chose to laugh when Liberian malitias went to war in ballgowns and lifejackets and I choose to laugh now.

    Not really, it's Africa. Nobody wanted to mess with him because they were afraid his MAGIC FLASHING BOX would steal their souls.

    aside from the fact that you're being total tools

    i condone this kind of warfare...much fewer people get killed and maybe they'll think twice before fighting again. if guns were involved, pretty much everything would be dead or destroyed.

    I dunno about that. Guns are way less painful then swords and arrows. Besides, they're cleaner and easier to treat, seeing as they don't completely **** up your entrails.
