UN Starves One Million Somalis on 10 Cents A Day

The UN announced its budget for feeding the over one million Somali refugees under its care for the next year and have allocated less than 10 cents a day to do so.
Anthony Lake, once nominated to head the CIA, now UNICEF supremo, held a press conference in April 2012 to declare a budget of $35 million for the next year to feed the Somali refugees in its care, over one million and growing by the day.
And all the while the UN is funding the 20,000 man strong African Union army “pacifying” Mogadishu to the tune of over $350 million, $30 million a month and counting.

The UN created these refugees in the first place, sending in the Ethiopian army in 2006 to bring fire and sword to newly peaceful Somalia, followed by the UN dispatched relief forces, now over 15,000 from Uganda, ever since 2008.

Half a million Somali refugees created by the Ethiopian army, another half a million created by the UN/AU “pacification” of Mogadishu and now, following the worst drought and famine in 60 years, less than 10 cents a day to feed the lot.

Talk about cold blooded. Upon hearing this shouldn’t one automatically think mass murder by starvation, genocide even? Just as the US Army used to do to American Indians, drive them from their land into “refugee camps” and then starve them to death?

Just as the USA did to the Filipino people when it colonized the Philippines in the early 20th Century? The same again in Vietnam in the 1960′s?

The War on Terror in Somalia is none other than the War on the Somali people and the UN is the instrument used to commit Pax Americana’s crimes. A million$ a day for the War on the Somali People, 10 cents a day to feed the victims of that war.
I can still remember when the government here in Eritrea kicked out all the UN “peacekeepers” and how good it felt to see them go.

Here is to the day all of Somalia sees the end to the UN, the AU, Ethiopia, the USA or any foreign military presence, both overt and covert.
Until that day blood will only continue to be spilt and children starve and war, the war on the Somali people, will continue.

    "… Here is to the day all of Somalia sees the end to the UN, the AU, Ethiopia, the USA or any foreign military presence, both overt and covert. Until that day blood will only continue to be spilt and children starve and war, the war on the Somali people, will continue."

    Even if when the end to the UN, the AU, Ethiopia, the USA or any foreign military presence comes, the situation is unlikely to improve because Walaweyn are unable to manage themselves. 21 years without any results despite the millions of dollars poured into the TFG. It is money all went down the drain!

    The down breaks at the darkest hour of the night. Somali people will soon see the light of the day and we will put this dark episode of our history behind us. When we usher that day, there will not be a place for foreign presence and their meddling in our soil. We are very resilient people.

    Let there be no ambiguity: Somalis are being starved by other Somalis. May Allah bestow peace and prosperity to all Somalis wherever they are in this world. Blaming America for all the ills in the world is presumptuous, and frankly giving much undeserved credit to America's global reach.

    The dawn breaks that is

    Ever seen I was alive that was the only state I've seen Somalis in. Maybe one day we will see a different side and a glory that we never witnessed before.

    While there is an element of truth in the article, the fact that the writer is based in Eritrea descredits the artcle.

    • TFG
