UN & Militants tout Somalia “Golden-era”

Somalia, a region already suffering from floods, droughts, disease, locusts; now flanked by al-Qaeda Islamist training camps, suicide bombers, roadside bombs and near-daily assassinations...
(yet blame America anyway)

As Int'l troops step forward to answer the World's calls against African ethnic cleanse; the UN suffers 'lapse of memory' and vilifies their efforts... Thus the UN praises & widens Rebel Islamists influence; amidst Int'l Plea...
