Comments on: What should the world do about Somalia? http://blogs.reuters.com/global/2008/11/17/what-should-the-world-do-about-somalia/ Beyond the World news headlines Wed, 16 Nov 2016 20:09:42 +0000 hourly 1 http://wordpress.org/?v=4.2.5 By: farhan http://blogs.reuters.com/global/2008/11/17/what-should-the-world-do-about-somalia/comment-page-2/#comment-8889 Tue, 02 Jun 2009 12:51:49 +0000 http://blogs.reuters.com/global/?p=1269#comment-8889 As french a french of somali origins, im very saddened to see my homeland without hope and futur, but i realy do believe things will and can only get better, because first somalia is rich in mineral resource and also because somalia is very strategic. all the turmoil and troubles in somalia is fuelled by the west especially america. when there was chaos and anarchy in somalia, nobody cared. when those warlords and criminals were taking somalia on the brink of total instinction, they never tried to help. But the great people of somalia had enough and chose to go back to their roots and use their relegion as the only solution to get out of the hell in which they were living in. the islmaist came to power and cleaned the the whole south somalia in just 6 months, the country was the right track again. But as i said before, the west certainy dont want to see a strong and stable somalia for many reasons. especialy now that the country is chosing islamic conservatism. they would rather support brutal regimes like the one they put in place in ethiopia. The west needs to understand 1 thing, somalia is very different from most african countries. somalia wil never accept the modern colonialism that is imposed on most of our fellow africans. We only accept the destiny that god has for us. They never understood that during the colonial period. somalis are proud people they will never accept washington to meddle in their affairs and control somalia like they do troughout the world.somalia will stand up again and will be as powerfull as they were in the 70’s.

These people pretend to be true followers of Islam yet they continue to show the world everything Islam teaches them about peace has no effect on them.

Well, this just goes to show that you cannot just go about blow up ships. It makes the Indian Navy look VERY DUMB now.

Despite the poverty in Somalia and Ethopia who is supplier of weapons to the Pirates. When food funds are collected through Tv adverts etc.. to feed local people why funding should not be tackled for the weapons falling into the hands of these so called pirates. Surely the Pirate are not using first world war weapons and scaring away those claiming to be super power with satellite technologies and ability to see coins on the earth surface from space. It is joke.

I hear Blackwater are already assembling a small fleet to cash in on the current crisis.

Good for the pirates and anti-pirates, I say.

There’s nothing better than entrepreneurship.

They get it when it comes to them ahhh. lol. There is nothing so called pirates problem there, but American made chaos problem. Somalia had seen 6 months very peaceful months but thanks to American and their slaves like Ethiopia, Somalia is on chaos. What do you want to see from poor people if you use their costs taxless? Do you want that they should just smell the chinchin and let you pass away. lol! The west particulary American are eating what they cooked long ago and stop to cry like a child now.
The solution is easy if they really wanted to solve the problem! Leave the Somalis alone and let them manage their internal political differences by theirselves, then they will clean the costs from pirates. Like you see, this will be the only one solution no matter how many wrong policy you fellow.

PS: I said you, because ya´ll just think selfish.

a) The Indain Navy must be guarding the frigates including the Aircraft carrier to avert any unmeditated attempt by the pirates to destroy the vessels by the sea suicide squads to place any amunitions under the sea.
b) To be ever vigilant and not to go near to any border from where the pirates might attempt to fire anti-vessel misiles at the Indian vessels.
Thanks,
Louis
