Africa is a continent with a lot of problems.
It has AIDS, civil war, famine, ethnic cleansing and extreme poverty.
The rest of the world knows this and we do what we can to help.
For years now, countries have been providing aid to Africa. We had Band Aid. We have Concern and Médecins Sans Frontières and the Red Cross and countless other groups. The world cares and the world wants to help.
We have been sending food and clothing and money. We have been sending medical aid and engineers. There are countless volunteers helping out.
I’m glad to see that the US has joined in the effort.
They have sent AC31 Gunships. I’m sure that the people of Somalia are delighted to be bombed and shot at. It’ll take their minds off the starvation and poverty. It’ll put the AIDS sufferers out of their misery.
Good on ya George. Lateral thinking. I like it.
They killed the one man they were after. That’s a lot of shooting to kill one man.
They also killed a lot of other people. Witnesses said at least 19 civilians were killed Monday evening in Hayi, including a small boy. But according to a Government Spokesman
“Most were Islamic fighters.”
So this is how you become an Islamic fighter. You get shot by the Americans.
Either that, or every second person on the face of the planet is an Islamic fighter, which means the Americans can shoot who they like.
Anyway, I’m sure the families of the people who were killed will be over the moon that the Americans got the man they were after.
So if ever you find yourself needing help, don’t ask George W for aid. He’ll only come and shoot you.
