There are no natural resources of any importace in Somalia, so there will be no investment in feeding these people.

They take and do not provide anything of any significance.

This is absolutely scandalous, but unless we the people dig deep into our own pockets, our Governments will not use our taxes to feed these poor people. But hey, let's make sure the bankers remain in their jobs, by bailing them out to the tune of BILLIONS!!!

What would a small percentage of that provide for these families.

"Go to the light Edith Ann, RUN to the light". ........yo camaro dude, your attitude? it has me shaking my head but I'll try to answer your questions. they are experiencing a drought of biblical proportions. drought equals no rainfall / water. anything they grow dies. capish? as far as why do they have children; well gee, maybe because they have no idea what birth control is? sex is a natural thing and on occasion when one has sex one procreates. (it's the birds & the bees). birth control / spread of STD's is a problem in that area of the world but we're working on it. finally, I don't think they have much control over "where" they live. it's not like they sought out the desert to pitch their tent or like they can get on a jet and fly to Monaco for the weekend. regardless, they are our fellow human being and we should help them.... it's the core of what humanity means....... in fact at one time it was part of what it meant to be American......... yep, at one time we helped our fellow man. the old days I guess they're called.


well how about you walk the walk. get your wallet out, fly over there and start handing out snack packs. start helping the kids over there.

I have to point out for those who weren't old enough to remember how this all happened once before, but this is almost exactly how the media managed to get Americans feeling guilty enough to commit US. military forces to Somalia in 1992 under Bush. I'd imagine we all recall how that ended in 1994.

I hate seeing anyone suffer anywhere, but to whatever extent the U.S. COULD have been the world 9-11 in the past, we have nothing left in the cupboards to give. Let someone else go play hero in a lawless land for a change. We've been there, tried that and it really went very badly. Nothing has changed in the reasons it failed the first time.

well how about you walk the walk. get your wallet out and start paying up. start helping the kids over there.


How about you bums start helping
THE CHILDREN OVER HERE

and not feed their own people..

Without explanations...make it simple.

Do you think the world should simply ignore this and let 400,000 starve if we all knew we could save them?

Let them starve?

yes or no?

Well in the news it was reported that many of the aids that was send to those countries in need like Somalia in the way of food was finding its way into the black market for sale.

This was reported in the news, so we send aid like food and needed necessities but the governments are not keeping track of how is distributed, somebody is making money out of the aid.

There is no recognised Government in Somalia. Warlords run the joint, that is why food is being stolen.

Funny how we could Invade Iraq and Afghanistan, but we leave tyrants like this well alone. If we really wanted to bring democracy to countries, then this would be the perfect example.

No.

However - unless and until the experiment that is Somalia stops, this problem is going to continue.

People on here sometimes make me sick....

there are things people need to understand... African governments are corrupt... very little aid goes to the people who need it.

Africa is an oppressed continent...... like south America in places... what happens is... we give them money for aid... but they owe us money for well many things that we have either sold or imposed on there countries over time... so even though we give them money, they owe money out... think of it as paying the interest on a credit card every time they get money into the country....

en.wikipedia.org...'_debt

On top of that there has been a natural disaster.. like and earth quake or a volcano only in this case it was a drought...

So to re-cap... corrupt government... Third world debt... natural disaters....

this doesnt have anything to do with having too much children in poverty or needing to steralize the masses... if anything, What needs to happen is cancelling of third world debt and if we (as the Nato/UN nations) are going to invade the hell out of acountry and land in some forced democracy we should be doing it in countries who's governements are corrupt AND the people are in dire need of support instead of Gas/Oil/Heroin/Strong hold in Key Parts of the middle east and all the other sweet sweet things we steal from the Asian continent...

Americans argue they are world police... Britain argues there special forces are the best in the world....
France still claims territories in Africa as there own...yet all these places are focused on "terrorist cells" in the middle east.. instead of helping humanity!

If the military States we all live in spent there money to better the world rather than oppress the world we could progress as a race.


Africa is in this state because we raped it of it reasources a long time ago and now turn a blind eye because there is nothing we want... no other reason.



Foot note: we brought Christianity to a country and forced people not to use contraceptives or the devil would get them... we forced our ways on an entire continent... then we cast it aside once we couldnt use the people or get enough resources... this is our fault, we created it (the western world) as humans we should pick up the pieces we left...

I didn't do anything to Africa, ever. My ancestors didn't do anything to Africa. I am not responsible for the behaviour for every person with white skin that ever existed anywhere on the planet. To think I am is racist.
