US Ships Arms, Blocks Humanitarian Aid to Somalia

UN officials today issued their most public condemnation yet of US policy on Somalia, noting that the US government is preventing millions of dollars worth of humanitarian aid, including food aid, from reaching the Somali people.

The US defended the policy, saying that they had “evidence” that some of the contractors shipping the aid in were forced to pay protection tolls to militant groups. They have demanded the UN enact policies that officials say will restrict aid delivery even further in the nation, where the US-backed government controls only a few city blocks around the presidential palace.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The people of Somalia are totally irrelevant and expendable to the US government: the only thing which matters is who, ultimately, controls the oil and mineral resources.
