Al-Shabab prevents food aid from reaching 2.2 million Somalis, famine zone soon to expand
StarTribune.com ^ | 7/23/11 | JASON STRAZIUSO , Associated Press

The World Food Program can't reach 2.2 million Somalis in desperate need of aid in militant-controlled areas of Somalia, WFP's director said Saturday, meaning refugee camps in nearby Kenya and Ethiopia are likely to continue seeing thousands of new refugees each week.

SNIP


Al-Shabab signaled in early July that it would accept aid groups it had previously banned, but changed course on Thursday, saying groups like WFP are not welcome. The group's refusal to accept aid from Western and "Christian" aid groups means millions could starve — or be forced to begin the hike to help to Kenya, Ethiopia or Mogadishu, the Somali capital, which is also being overwhelmed with refugees.

Al-Shabab!!!

The same folks that have been funneling and funding Minneapolis Somalis as they return to Somalia to strap it on and blow themselves up, in order to kill as many as they possibly can. For no good reason.

After their mission is succesfully carried out, their powdered remains are returned to the US and buried with solemn religious ceremony in a cemetary in Burnsville, MN that they have purchased and are turning into a Muslim gathering place.

I will be moving my brother...somewhere else.

Has Hillary sent any angry letters yet? Has the UN ordered any crimes against humanity arrests and trials? Has Zero threatened them yet? Oh, they are Muslims ... never mind.

What they are doing makes sense. They are forcing more Muslims to flee to refugee camps in other countries. By doing this it increases the number of Muslims in these other countries and as a plus the refugees have a better chance of using their status as refugees to go in and settle in other Countries like the U.S.

Yes I am paranoid.

Starving Somalis, huh. Hmm...I have an idea:

Why don’t we get alllll wee-wee’d up, and send our soldiers there to act as a weird combo of social worker/cop in a place where there are neither.

And then, owing to political sensitivities we’ll deny them AC130’s or tanks, because those look “nasty” and Give Us Bad Vibes.

Then we’ll expand the mission; we’ll start arresting important criminals there, making everyone there pissed as hell. And then maybe the ones not shooting at us are in fact stealing from us. Later, owing to multiculturalism, maybe it will turn out that many of our most important interpreters in our military are RELATED to the criminals there.

Then we’ll get a whole bunch of our soldiers killed, and EVERYONE there will hate us much, much more.

For going over there and giving them FOOD.

Al-Shabab!!!

yes. but most people don’t know that.

they know that Islam is the Religion of Peace...
they feel sympathy for the 90 in Norway.
or the few dozen (maybe) that we dropped 2000 bombs
on Libya to “help” save.

but most people don’t know or care about
the 172 children killed in Breslan.
or the 300,000+ Christians killed in Sudan.
or the 2.2 million facing starvation in Somalia.
or the 70 million dead that gave the “Hindu Kush” it’s name.
or the 114 million Africans that died in the ARAB slave trade.

... ALL because of Islamists.

Why don’t they take all those ships that were going to take supplies to PALESTINE and instead take them to SOMALIA?

Call me hard hearted, but I am done weeping over starving Somalis or Ethiopians. We have had to watch our diner time TV news showing starving babies with flies crawling into their eyes and noses just too many times over the past ten years and are now numb to the issue. These countries and peoples never get it together no matter what amount of aid money is sent to them. Their society is broken, is run by evil war lords and won’t be fixed by hand outs. Don’t get me started on Haiti or New Orleans either.

The Somalis that shop at my Sam’s Club come out with 2 or 3 hand trucks piled high to overflowing with hundreds of dollars worth of food. Much of it is meat and perishables, but they all look like they haven’t eaten a meal in months... skinny as rails. I always wonder what they do with all the food, and where they got all the money. Never mind, I know. It’s all taxpayer dollars. Just darn!!!

IMHO...

I agree 100%.

I’m waiting for a Congress and President who can get this legislation implemented: NO FOOD LEAVES AMERICAN SHORES UNLESS SOMEBODY PAYS US TOP DOLLAR + A FAT TARIFF. BECAUSE AMERICANS SHOULD PAY LESS THAN DUMBSTERS IN OTHER COUNTRIES WHO REFUSE TO OVERTHROW THEIR OWN EVIL DICTATORS. NO MORE FOOD TO NORTH KOREA. OR AFRICA. OR ANYWHERE. AMERICANS EAT FIRST, AND EAT CHEAPLY. ANYTHING LEFTOVER, SELL TO THE HIGHEST BIDDER.

Sorry, huge corporate agri-business. WE ARE NOT THE FOODBASKET OF THE WORLD. IT WON’T WORK IN THE LONG RUN.

OTHER NATIONS ......... HAVE TO FEED THEMSELVES.

AMERICA CAN NOT FEED THE ENTIRE WORLD.

AMERICA HAS NO OBLIGATION, AS A NATION, TO FEED OTHER NATIONS.

(sorry, i gets so carried away)

Thanks ButThreeLeftsDo. Dang, there's no Somalia on this map. One of the long-term goals of the jihadists has been to create a landlocked Ethiopia, and then carve it up piecemeal. In recent years, US policy has finally come around to this problem.

I agree with you 100%. Tough love approach is needed. Let them starve. Either the people will wake up and stop the warlords or the warlords will run out of people to recruit/abuse.
