I cant believe the government would want there people to constantly fight in an ongoing war against Somalians. They need to learn to try to put their beliefs aside. The unending battle cannot be good for their moral, economy, or future in general. The governments of both countries are just being selfish and trying to force their religion on each other.

Well, one would wonder why the West constantly forks out to support these countries with aid. If they can dish out guns then they should be expected to dish out food.

Oh, but what's this... They expect the West to provide the food.

The US recently with-held / delayed a humanitarian aid package and was criticised.

I despair.

Religion? It is called foreign interventions, America is deeply involved in Somalia and peace won't ever exist until the big boys stop supporting sides.

There is no support for the Western backed government amongst the population, basically you can make a comparison to Afghanistan. Both countries are facing the same situation.
