It is hardly a unique story at this point, but once again the Somali government seems on the verge of collapse against a fierce offensive by the al-Shabaab movement. The US State Department is pointing its finger squarely at the nation of Eritrea, claiming it “has been instrumental in facilitating support of the extremists” that are imperiling the US-backed Transitional Federal Government (TFG).
Eritrea?!?!?!? Are you flipping kidding me?!?!?!?
How about blaming an idiotic, spastic, US foreign policy having nothing to do with the the well-being of the Somali people, and everything to do with exploiting its natural resources??
As reported in http://indexmundi.com/somalia/natural_resources.html
"Natural resources: uranium and largely unexploited reserves of iron ore, tin, gypsum, bauxite, copper, salt, natural gas, likely oil reserves"
And don't kid yourself: Africa is the "next Middle East" in terms of appropriating and exploiting its natural resources.
