    Somali rebels ban aid and claim "the declaration of famine is political and is a lie with hidden agendas" - Somali rebels maintain aid ban, reject famine - Yahoo! News


    Remembering that the scramble for Africa all began with so-called missionaries infiltrating Africa in the name of God, I think the Somali rebels just may be right. While some have forgotten, African thinkers have not.

    Therefore, I agree with the Somali rebels that these agencies coming to Africa for alleged aid purposes may very well be agents of their various governments seeking to gain intelligence. Besides, I find it hard to believe that Africans in Africa have become so mentally impoverished that a drought would immediately result in famine.

    If anyone truly seeks to reach-out to Africans, then give them the tools and technology to help them help themselves. The people of Somalia, Ethiopia and Kenya need tools and technology, not daily fractions of bread and fish.

    Drought and famine in Somalia causes much suffering...

    Nurse struggles to save starving Somali children
    Jul 29,`11 - Nurse Serat Amin works in the world's largest refugee camp treating the stream of starving children coming into Kenya from famine-struck Somalia, and although he has painful memories of the children who have died, watching the weak get stronger gives him the courage to carry on. "You can see if a child is getting better just from the face of the parent," he said. "Making a difference is what keeps me here."

    Belligent Drunk, did you know that "Technology" simply means know-how? By the way, why would we indefinitely give daily ration of food to people, rather than teach them how to seek food for themselves?

    Children suffer the most...

    Horn of Africa Children Exposed to Lifetime Trauma
    July 29, 2011 - Drought, famine, and warfare have profound physical and psychological impacts on children, especially those three years old and under. Malnutrition and disease at these vulnerable ages leave a lasting mark that stretch into adulthood. Around 500,000 children in the Horn of Africa are in need of immediate, life-saving help.

    No one is asking the US to send food to Somalia or any African nation. As a matter of fact, Somalis and other Africans would fair better without US "intervention."

    Waltky, sorry to inform you UNICEF as well as WHO are out to reduce world population. These entities are of the opinion that the world is over-populated and they seek to reduce world population by inducing inhumane conditions and diseases, which can all be easily accomplished via Hi-Tech.

    Remember Swine-flu? What happened to swine-flu? How did that dreadful swine-flu that was going to kill everyone, unless we were all vaccinated, just disappear? UNICEF and WHO want to reduce world population, and this goal can be accomplished by introducing harsh conditions until the affected perish.
