Somalia, Place Of Dreams

The area of the world known as “Somalia” has witnessed civil war for over thirty years during which times untold thousands have been murdered or watched their homes destroyed. But, to the Migration Board of Sweden, there is not that much difference between living in their nation than in heading to Somalia for fun and games. Until now the majority of Somali refugees have been allowed to remain in the safety of Sweden, but that might soon change. The Board has decided to change the Somalia status from “war” to “serious adversity.”

Duh! Up to this point about 90% of those seeking asylum have been allowed to remain but new guidelines might result in thousands being returned to the hell spot known as Somalia. OK, the al-Shabaab have been weakened, but I doubt if members of the Migration Board would enjoy a single day in Somalia!
