Somalia President Resigns - Blames The "West"

Mon Dec 29, 2008 8:51 am

President Yusuf of Somalia stepped down today (Monday in Afirca) and blamed America, Europe, and fellow African countries for what is happening. He says that they should have all helped in the Horn of Africa.

In part, we did not seem to do much here in this area. President Yusuf is right in ways that his country needed the help and we (the Western world) did not do anything to help out. I pray and hope that the extreamists there will not completely take over the country and terrorize the people of Somalia. On the other hand, I do not know a whole lot on the things going on in Somali other than the pirates.
Don't Tread On Me!
