MuslimVillage.comMay 2013 “Information Clearing House” – The UN has announced that in
2010-2012, including the Great Horn of Africa Drought period, at least
250,000 Somalis starved to death.
Wednesday, May 22, 2013
Most of those who died from starvation were internally displaced
persons, displaced in the main by the military invasion and occupation
of southern Somalia by the UN backed Ethiopian Army and then the AU
“peacekeepers”, today some 25,000 strong.
When I last wrote about starvation in Somalia I spoke of the UN
budgeting 10 cents a day for food aid to feed each Somali refugee. Its
called a “budget shortfall” as in “we want to help but we just don’t
have the money”.
Yet during this period of mass starvation of the Somali people the UN
and its western overlords spent over $1 billion funding its military
“peacekeeping mission” in what’s left of the country.
$1 billion for war and 250,000 Somalis left to starve to death?
Maybe knowing that the head of the largest UN food aid “ngo” in
Somalia, UNICEF, is Anthony “Tony” Lake, formerly National Security
Advisor of the USA and once nominated to be Director of the CIA can help
one understand why this happened.
Tony Lake is the one who so infamously stated he “regretted” not
doing anything while knowing full well mass murder was going on in
Rwanda on his watch as Bill Clinton’s right hand man in 1994. CIA to
UNICEF? Should one be suprised to find mass starvation under his watch
Today, while the propaganda machines in the western media speak of
“peace and democracy coming to Somalia for the first time in a
generation” they some how forget how Somalis themselves brought peace to
Mogadishu in 2006 only to see the UN backed Ethiopian invasion send it
all up in smoke.
The television news channels may trot out a few tame Somalis to spout
rhetoric about “Somalis running the show” behind the cameras stand
“peacekeepers” armed to the teeth by the UN backed by the banktatorships
in the west.
The fact is no power no matter how strong can bring peace to Somalia
from without, only the Somali people, left alone to sort out their own
problems can do so. In 2006 the Union of Islamic Courts succeeded for
the first time in 15 years to no avail due to armed intervention ordered
by the USA and its minions in the UN. This externally funded and
directed armed conflict continues to drive hundreds of thousands of
Somalis from their land and homes leaving them to starve on the UN’s
bounty of 10 cents a day.
And all the while more arms pour into Somalia from the west with Pax
Americana demanding that any and all paper restrictions on such be
lifted, all in the name of the “war on terror”, really a “war of
terror”, a war on the Somali people whose main misfortune turns out to
be that they live smack in the middle of the Horn of Africa astride the
“Gate of Tears”, Baab Al Mandeb, where the Indian Ocean meets the Red
Sea through which the largest economies in the world depend on to ship
Writing about the enormous, inhuman crimes committed by the UN in the
Horn of Africa has become almost to painful to continue to do. But when
the UN sends its talking heads to tell the world that a quarter million
more Somalis died these past two years, died by mass starvation what
choice does one have but to once again raise a voice in protest for
turning your head away from the television and pretending not to hear is
simply not a decision I for one can live with.
