Killer Communications

The War the World Forgot
Coltan, short for Columbite-tantalite, is essential for the power-storing parts of cell phones, nuclear reactors, Play Stations, and computer chips. This substance is mainly mined in the Congo. Most of us are not aware the price on the life of many a poor worker and his family that mines for this. It is tragic when modern needs destroy a country and its people to such an extent. To be part of this modern world we must be part of the blame of what it has caused. The words from this article should be read by all. It is not just the obvious tragedies like Iraq that should call our attention, but all of them.
