Somalia can’t feed itself, and its “government” hinders aid

In the latest example of African mismanagement and incompetence, the impotent Bush-backed “government” of Somalia has arrested a U.N. food agency officer. In response, the World Food Program immediately suspended all aid distribution in the capital city of  Mogadishu.

The Interior Minister, Mohamed Mohamoud Guled, claims that the WFP distributed food aid last month without consulting the government, but stopped short of attributing the arrest to this.

The whole fucking country is starving to death, civil war is the rule of law, joblessness is the norm, and poverty is epidemic. So how do these animals help their people? By depriving them of the food they cannot seem to produce for themselves.

Here’s a link to the CNN story.
