    Default Somalia

    http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2011/0..._n_927126.html

    Sad story in Somalia.

    The U.N. says more than 3.2 million Somalis nearly half the population need food aid after a severe drought that has been complicated by Somalia's long-running war. More than 450,000 Somalis live in famine zones controlled by al-Qaida-linked militants, where aid is difficult to deliver. The U.S. says 29,000 Somali children under age 5 already have died.

    And... I ask you, whose fault is this? I'm sure that somehow it will be "Bush's Fault" or "America's Fault".

    And getting food there... ummm from where? And who makes sure those kids eat?

    For once I would say it's not my problem or America's problem.

    Maybe Al-Qaeda could help them out.

    This sounds alarmingly like the situation we were drawn into in the early 1990s.

    No sorry. I was referring to Somalia, Aidid, Mogadishu, etc.
