They call it Bula Bakti, the Carcass Dump. Here, in 37-degree heat, we help to dig a grave for Osman, a seven-month old boy, who died of starvation in his mothers arms the previous night. It is 12.45pm on Saturday, and before Osmans body is committed to the earth, his mother brings us to her home a hut made from tree branches tied together into a dome and covered with bits of plastic for a roof. Osmans body lays on the mud floor; his mother, Mumini Ibrahim, sitting beside it, with Osmans twin sister Kadida nestled against her breast. The surviving twin stares out at me with beautiful brown, scared eyes.

Why hasn’t all that money they make on piracy trickled down to the poor? Why should we care after they raid our ships? Let the pirates take care of them.
The shocking reality is that they have a corrupt government that keeps any type of business or jobs from being created in their country. Like all third world he** holes the government drains all the money from the people and to he** with the populace.
...they don’t really have a government at all. It’s just corrupt war lords.
The end results is the same, the people are screwed.
Sooo... Less moose limbs is a bad thing???
If only you would give, they could all be saved.
I think the woman featured in the article had 7 children (5 that she brought with her, and two that had gone with her husband). I am surprised that she, or any of these women, can even be fertile while they are starving. I thought that you needed a certain amount of body fat to even have a monthly cycle. Very sad.
Yes, so that they can thank Allah and continue hating you with all of their little hearts.
Both presidents Bush and Obama have been bringing in Somali immigrants by the thousands and thousands.
Just Google “Somali Immigrats To the US”
You will find articles like these:
“Obama reinstating immigration program that has brought 24 suspected jihadists into the US”
“Somali immigrants remake Minneapolis”
feed um and they breed , 5 years later , back to square one again . Sometimes famine is a necessary and a good thing
We have over 50,000 of the vermin in Columbus.
The number one name for baby Muslim boys since 9-11 has been Osama. I’ll bet you dollars to donuts this writer decided to change the name for our sensibilities.
Reminds me to rent Black Hawk Down.
Been there, done that got the bloody tee shirt.
The UN installed a government. It has control of about a thhird of the capitol city. lol.
The thing that bothers me when I read articles like this is that the populace is never held to blame for either creating or allowing that type of situation to occur in the first place nor by taking any group action to eliminate it.
That stinking “hell hole” didn’t just suddenly pop up one day. It emerged as the people let it happen. Now they pay the price for their inaction and hope the rest of the world will come over and correct it for them.
Not until THEY do something themselves, will any improvement in life occur.
Was it really so long ago that they led the West to Somalia to "feed the hungry?" Here are some images, from the memory hole, of the results:
I also have been there and done that, no pity from me. If you lie with dogs....
Osman is a fairly popular Islamic name in its own right; it’s particularly famous in the Turkish context where the Sultan Osman I gave his name to the Ottoman Empire.
Of course, not all cultures are created equally.
I’m not callous to their plight but have you noticed that nobody in these societies is suing for gays to serve in the military, nobody is claiming to be a man trapped in a woman’s body, nobody is filing to have religious symbols banned from the public square?
Amazing how actual hardship focuses the mind and eliminates the decadent.
50,000? Wow. There’s a hotbed for societal discord. I love how we import the world’s problems.
Not our problem.
The Somalis have not been “good neighbors” to us. Given that we’re running on bankrupt, there is no reason for us as nation to help them.
Feel free to contribute your own personal funds, though.
That's an understatement. If you are ever in Central Ohio and hear the natives mocking "skinnies," you'll know who they're talking about. The local media portrays whites as "intolerant" while treating the stinking (literally), arrogant, filthy Somalis as saints. Interestingly, the group that despises the skinnies more than any other is American blacks. Put "Raeshawn" in a room with a skinny and you'll have a cage match.
Oh, did I mention we've had dozens arrested here by the feds as terrorists? Remember the Brooklyn Bridge plot? That was planned in a Tim Horton's on Cleveland Ave in NE Columbus.
And to think, out of three brothers, Ted was the only one nobody shot at.
Sir, thank you, you are correct as usual!
