Somalia's Spreading Cancer - Politics - The Atlantic
Somalia is one of my pet peeves, because no one in the world seems to care one iota
If we should be helping anyone in the world it should be these people
No, they don't.
Nobody cares what happens in Darfur, either.
Nope, unfortunate and true
What happened, that we no longer care about innocent people being massacred?
Some of us do.
Some of us say we can't help out people who are being slaughtered because it's not our fight.
Some of us say everybody is right and we don't understand what's going on, so should stay out of it.
But I think we have a duty as the strongest nation, a free nation, to protect anyone who needs to be protected.
What a shame so many seem to think freedom is all about battening down the hatches and living in our own skins.
We tried getting involved in Somalia...
I don't know when it is that it became acceptable to Americans to embark on an endeavor and not finish it, and not commit to finishing well.
Alli, much of the world doesn't want out 'help'.
And they've good reason to not trust us to 'help' them. Why do you think so much of the world hates us? Ask the former banana republics and other places where we put new dictators in place so American businesses could make a few bucks.
Yea. and like every other scenario it was a total failure.
murka..........Never deserved an " A" in anything.
Another third world shithole we ought to stay the hell out of.
