Makes me wonder why in this day an age people have to suffer and result to this type of actions?
Were is the outrage? Were is the U.S.? The worthless U.N.? I bet that if there was oil on this and other suffering countries not only the U.S. but all other countries would be right there "giving them bread" while taking away the resources of the country.
Its a shame.
