The shocking reality of the Somalian famine
Daily Mail ^ | August 1, 2011 | Brian Carroll

Posted on 08/01/2011 12:11:25 AM PDT by americanophile

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 mother’s arms the previous night. It is 12.45pm on Saturday, and before Osman’s 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. Osman’s body lays on the mud floor; his mother, Mumini Ibrahim, sitting beside it, with Osman’s 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.

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.

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”

Osman? Really?
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.

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.

I see the Leftwing Establishment Media (LEM) is again relying on the Orwellian memory hole they have created in public consciousness to mislead the LEMmings of the West again!

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:

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.

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.

Its time the Islamic aid organizations that are providing arms to the Palestinians step up and feed their Somali brethren.

There’s a hotbed for societal discord.

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.
