[2011 Aug] Starving Somalia: U.S. “Other Wars” Kill More than Afghanistan, Pakistan and Iraq by Glen Ford Somalia had a semblance of peace, and a government to protect the peace, for a very brief time before the U.S. armed and instigated an Ethiopian invasion of the country, in late 2006. They crushed and scattered the Islamist government – called the Islamic Courts – whose youth wing, the Shabab, then mounted a guerilla resistance. Almost immediately, the country was plunged into what the United Nations called “the worst humanitarian crisis in Africa.”
[2011 Aug] Burying the Darfur Genocide Myth by Thomas
C. Mountain Genocide has and is being committed by the Ethiopian
regime of Meles Zenawi against the Somali people of the Ogaden, but there has
been no genocide in Darfur.....The Darfur genocide myth has for years been a
very useful smokescreen in helping to hide the most terrible crime in the world
today, the Ogaden Genocide.....Sudan is estimated to have suffered some two
million deaths during its decades-long civil war between the north and the
south. While peace has been slowing taking hold in Darfur, in the
Ogaden peace is a long lost memory. War, famine, and disease are spreading
across the Ogaden, and it is becoming a situation that is increasingly the norm
in growing areas of Ethiopia. While the western hucksters raked in beau coup
millions of dollars while peddling their “save Darfur” bunkum, Sudanese have
seen real peace on the ground take place in Darfur.
In contrast, Ethiopians, suffering under a regime that is the largest recipient of western aid in Africa, only see a future of growing ethnic and religious conflict, and worse, active programs of genocide. The problems developing in Ethiopia can invariably be traced back to the west, mainly the USA. The west, in particular the USA, is hell bent on keeping Africa in a state of crisis, the better to exploit. And the “save Darfur” lobby is all for bringing more violence to Africa under the guise of “humanitarian intervention”, while little of the over $100 million they collected ever reached the Darfur people it was intended for.
[2011 Aug] U.S. Hires Shady Mercenary for Somali Proxy War
[2011 July] World Food Program in Somalia: Angel of Mercy or Angel of Death? by Thomas C. Mountain Back in 2006, just as Somali farmers brought their grain harvest to market, the WFP began the distribution of its entire year’s grain aid for Somalia. With thousands of tons of free grain available, Somali farmers found it almost impossible to sell their harvest and faced disaster......Then in 2007, just as the Somali grain harvest began to arrive in local markets, the WFP once again distributed its entire year’s grain aid, only this time with the Ethiopian army there to protect it. With a four-year-long on-and-off-again drought since afflicting most of Somalia, you could say the WFP helped put the nail in the coffin of Somali agriculture.
