Somali Civil War is Madness!
I think what happens in Somalia is madness. Islam has nothing to do with it, as I understood from my Muslim friends that their religion forbids not only the killings, but also forbids scaring others. This is phobia. There should be some ways to stop this hysteria.
According to some humanitarian organizations, around 3 million Somalis have fled their country and become dependant on humanitarian aid. All the humanitarian agencies say Somalia is one of the worst humanitarian crises in the world.
The numbers of Somali displaced people mentioned are not accurate. Relatives and families have taken many displaced Somalis to safe places.
It is necessary to stop shipping weapons to the country. The Crisis Group said that it would be better to track the routes of the weapons. It is very bad to watch people killing each other.
Since the Somalis use those weapons to kill each other, why not the international community takes measures to ensure that weapons reach the government forces safely.
It seems that no body cares of those nice and innocent people. The rebels assume that they have religious goals to wage wars misled by leaders who think Islam goes that way of violence. Simple people face exploitation and believe on such claims.
