Well, I would be mad if that crusty , old , nasty, stick in your throat BISCUIT they throw at them daily cost more than a dime.

I don't know who to blame.
Its a sick, sick, world that watches babies and children starve while building bombs and weapons of mass distruction. Ya, I'm part of that sick world and through my tax $$ and laziness, my hands are just as dirty as those who throw the 'Biscuits' at those crawling in the dust looking for something to eat, because I KNOW whats happenning and I don't TRY and do anything about it.
Imagine if you would have been born there instead of here. Feel kinda lucky, eh?

Thoughts!?
 

I think you have a rather Hollywood grasp of the term Gangster


those people starve because Gangster Warlords steal the UN Food....

Yeah, I get that you are the messenger....
I get your star search.....
I get your knee jerk OP


but are you willing to do anything about it such as this young man has in this video,

or the soldiers who died trying to ensure that to food was spread equally throughout the land

ATS posters have a grand time with the keyboard,
I dare any to go abroad and seek out the real truth,
get off the Hi-Horse and go live amongst the flies and the stinch of the land you take up opinions about

I have been to 18 different countries. For the most part, you can keep them. They have little to nothing I want. As for feeding them.

Why cant people just leave other people alone?

It's like the US and the EPA lunatics.

We mess with a forest to save an animal. Uh-oh, too many of that animal. Let's ship in a bunch of predators to balance it all out. Uh-oh, now there are too many predators.

Every time humans touch a thing they screw it up.

Sure, it sucks that people are starving. Just let it play out.

Or we could take a cue from the EPA and send in a bunch of predators until the population reduces to a sustainable size. Then send in a bunch of federal "hunters" to kill off some of the predators.

What are the Somalis doing just sitting around in the dirt waiting their 10 cent serving of gruel?
How about along with the gruel we do some preventative maintenance and fix some of them for birth control purposes? Then maybe give them some fishing supplies and fishing boats, maybe some corn seed and some farm animals???

Oh, they've got plenty of fishing boats. But they prefer to load them up with RPGs and hold ships to ransom instead of fishing. I really don't have any sympathy for most of Somalia, to be honest. There's never been an attempt at civilization there.

Yeah they do have plenty of fishing boats. They also have an ocean full of toxic and radioactive waste that they didn't ask for killing their ability to fish and feed themselves.

Radioactive waste surfacing on the Somalian coast

Toxic waste behind rise in piracy?

Oh but I guess really it's all their fault they are starving and not the fault of the European and global corporations using their coast line as a dumping ground. *Sarcasm*I guess you're right damn primitive breeders screw them they get what they deserve! *Sarcasm*

*Sigh* I guess this is just the world we live in; the world turns a blind eye to the root causes of the suffering of their fellow brothers and sisters and then turn a blind eye to their suffering. Wow the true face of humanity; their brothers and sisters reach out a hand for some help and the world kicks them in the face and tells them to go away and die and quit bothering them.

This thread is already full of so much ignorance intolerance and overt racism that its sickening.

Lets get this straight once and for all Africa was the cradle of civilization the richest continent in resources by far.

The rest of the world raped Africa since the fall of the Egyptian empire. They stole everything imaginable of nearly 800 years. A debt is owed and that debt is held by those families which leveraged their power with what they stole. That is not a commoners debt.

Yet feeding 1,000,000 people on 100,000 dollars is the most insane thing I've ever heard. While CEOs and sports entertainers get 27 million signing bonuses. We enforce a culture ans system that sees nothing wrong with that. A culture that condemns innocent children to starvation and death all in the name of me. Me over everything, help people that's socialism.

Then again when you can build a whole country on the genocide of one people and enslavement of another perhaps asking for compassion from their brainwashed descents is a bit much.

Come on ATS.

WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOAH there, I don't owe anybody in Africa a penny- if you feel strongly enough donate all your income to some worthy African cause.


Lots of countries have raped and pillaged, Africans have raped and pillaged others- you are just a purveyor of victim agendas, this sort of thinking keeps countries (and individuals) constantly in the doldrums and is part of the problem.

Somalia is a dying state, and thanks to NO ONE willing to intervene it's not going to better any time soon. So who is to blame, well all of us but first of the persistent civil war. The UN can only help if they go in with protection, and the "blue helmets" are not the best soldiers. So what do we do to help, raise enough hell to get food and protection to make sure the bastards don't steal it. That country is a toilet with not so much as a zip code and thats beyond pathetic.

You have a civil war between Muslims and Christians, and thats the LEAST of it. What a wonderful advertisement for religion, kill your neighbor but you go to hell if you don't prey 4 times a day, or go to church once in a while. What bull s***...

if it were their kids or parents, they would be crying about the maltreatment, so inhumane...

meanwhile, we have enough money to host forumla 1 races and waste a bunch of gas, fatten up some consumers on 7$ hot dogs and host extravagant world summits. I could go on all day..

all we'd have to do is educate them on how to enhance their standard of living instead of treating them like animals that we have to dump the slop for before the sun goes down...seriously...
