U.S. Government to Blame for Somalia’s Misery

by Scott Horton September 25, 2013

At the beginning of May the Famine Early Warning Systems Network (FEWS NET), a U.S.- and U.K.-government-financed organization that monitors various food crises around the world, released a new report detailing the horrific consequences of the Somali famine of 2011.

According to FEWS NET, “An estimated 4.6 percent of the total population and 10 percent of children under 5 died in Southern and Central Somalia [between October 2010 and April 2012.]”

It is now estimated that more than a quarter of a million people died, more than half of them — at least 125,000 — children. This is more than twice the number the British government had previously concluded.

Al-Shabaab (militant group)

Harakat al-Shabaab al-Mujahideen (HSM) (Arabic: حركة الشباب المجاهدين‎; Ḥarakat ash-Shabāb al-Mujāhidīn, Somali: Xarakada Mujaahidiinta Alshabaab, "Mujahideen Youth Movement" or "Movement of Striving Youth"), more commonly known as al-Shabaab (Arabic: الشباب‎, "The Youth" or "The Boys"), is the Somalia-based cell of the militant Islamist group al-Qaeda, formally recognized in 2012.[4] As of 2012, the group controls large swathes of the southern parts of the country,[5] where it is said to have imposed its own strict form of Sharia (law).[6] Al-Shabaab's troop strength as of May 2011 was estimated at 14,426 militants.[7] In February 2012, Al-Shabaab leaders quarreled with Al-Qaeda over the union,[8] and quickly lost ground.[9]

The group is an off-shoot of the Islamic Courts Union (ICU), which splintered into several smaller factions after its defeat in 2006 by the Somali Transitional Federal Government (TFG) and the TFG's Ethiopian military allies.[10] Al-Shabaab describes itself as waging jihad against "enemies of Islam", and is engaged in combat against the TFG and the African Union Mission to Somalia (AMISOM). Alleging ulterior motives on the part of foreign organizations, group members have also reportedly intimidated, kidnapped and killed aid workers, leading to a suspension of humanitarian operations and an exodus of relief agents.[11] Al-Shabaab has been designated a terrorist organization by several Western governments and security services.[12][13][14] As of June 2012, the US State Department has open bounties on several of the group's senior commanders.[15]

love Scott, but like many

he refuses to see this for what it is: it's not merely "hubris, blowback, and/or stupidity;" it's INTENTIONAL.

once or twice? sure. but repeated, publicly, factually, historically verifiable modus operandi?

yup. intentional.

if you're a social engineer and/or warplanner, you beta test everything; observe what works, what doesn't, watch your target's reactions. Then you repeat what you learned elsewhere.

seeing as how this keeps happening, and there is one specific faction that always benefit: bankster MIC, you'd have to be daft to not at least consider the possibility that all this is intentional.

Repeatable success in any given experiment in science becomes a proven hypothesis, ie. an operative theory. When you can repeat an experiment? It's proven.

Scott's still stuck on all of this being SOLELY hubris & blowback.

But, good people constantly forget that while control freaks suck at building beautiful things, they ALWAYS excel at destroying things and also, excel at scheming to destroy things.

that, is the one question Ernie keeps trying to get Scott to consider and answer: what do you think their ultimate motive and objectives are? "There's something else going on here! WHAT is it??"

a larger intentional geopolitical scheme, ie. NWO. But Scott's still stuck on hubris/blowback.

why is something so visibly observable hard for some to see?

Beta-test, test hypothesis, prove hypothesis, proven hypothesis = 'scientific theory.' When repeatable, and you try it elsewhere, expecting a measurable objective/result? It's INTENTIONAL.

Don't know: how many false flagged, covertly financed 'terrorist' mercenary groups armed/funded/supported by USG & Wall St. laundering their 'money' must some see, before they admit the obvious??

It's intentional, intentional, intentional.

If not? That is one lucky generational degenerates, whom, for 'some unknown reason' keep running the world, fomenting schit, finance 'both sides,' leverage and profit off both parties regardless of who wins that given conflict, then recycle the same plan, in another part of the world, over and over, and over and over again, etc.

Gee... wow, what a 'lucky' group...talk about winning the 'lottery' constantly for 1000's of yrs, with 'absolute cluelessness.' sure.

Nope. nothing intentional about that.
