Somalia is a land that God somehow forgot all about when He got around to creating this planet. For nearly forty years chaos, hunger, and violence have been the daily occurrences for most people in this cursed land. Islamist fighters sent a message of defiance to the Christian world. They warned of blood flowing in the streets of western nations unless European and American diplomats and military stayed off their turf.
A new combined group of al-Shabaab and al-Qaida made clear lay off their territory or else! “Your peace depends upon us being left alone.” Alas, that can not be policy since to leave the people of Somalia to these thugs is to leave them alone in misery, poverty and death.
