    That's sad these people can't get help. 2.4 billion is small compared to all the money thrown around.

    The truth is we are more concerned about the Somalis than their fellow Africans are, and you can forget about the Muslims in the Middle east, they wouldn't piss on the Somalis if they were on fire.

    Perhaps we are "more concerned" because we helped created their situations. Noticed how we were more concerned about 2010 Haiti catastrophic earthquake and had our rescue team already waiting in Haiti hours prior to the 7.0 magnitude earthquake?

    Honestly most of these dictators don't give two shits about there people. That is just reality. I'd support removing all aid from that place and just pulling back to the borders...It is not worth another cent to rebuild or care about someone that hates you.
