Good morning, this ain't Vietnam still
People lose hands, legs, arms, for real

from Kanye West (Ft. Jay Z) – Diamonds From Sierra Leone (Remix) Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

Also a reference to the film Good Morning Vietnam, a comedy about an American radio DJ in Vietnam during the war

Though Sierra Leone isn’t as bad as Vietnam (or perhaps just isn’t as well documented), there is a lot of brutal violence going on
