Somalia worst for child mortality, U.N. agency says

Somalia now has the world's highest  mortality rate for children under the age of five, according to new data  released by the UN Inter-agency Group for Child Mortality Estimation.

"Somalia's child mortality rate in 2010, stood at 180 deaths per 1,000 live births which now ranks worst in the world," the United Nations Children's Fund said in a media statement.

  6. Somalia's wealth

    If Somalians were allowed access to thei own natural resources, they would be among the wealthiest peoples on plantet earth, if not THE wealthiest per-capita. But Somalian citizens are denied access. Only their crooked leaders and the ones rayping them of their oil are rich. Get a clue. There is much we can do about this. But YOU would rather have that oil for your SUV. And YOU would rather couch-potato TV and feel sorry for Somalians. Take your "christian" relief fund that soothes your shamefull mind and shove it up your ass. Greedy bassterds.

This is a factual statistic that only you ignoramuses argue) let's see who focuses-in on misspelled words here while ignoring this message...identifying themselves for all to see just how ignore-ant they really are.

    @Multi-Philip:

    Pick one thing...just one topic...to discuss, and I will try to discuss it.
    This is like asking someone to discuss an encyclopedia...
    I can't do it.

    Also, please provide this greedy bassterd with some solutions to Somalia's plight.
    Since I'm such a big part of the problem and all.
    I can stop eating, quit taking the medicines that help keep me alive, hock my engagement ring, and stop driving my motorhome a block down the street to pick up some milk.
    What else can I do to stop the rayping and pillaging?
    I realize I'm being facetious, but really, what is the answer?

  15. you can't handle the (ultimate) truth

    ...but by the time I'm done tearing down ya'lls wall of ignorance, you will be able to see it for yourself. Solution to Somalia? Intstead of pushing Uncle Sam to go out and get more stuff for you, push him to stop. Use what voice you have and say 'we know what you are up to Sam...and we don't hold it agin ya. Please just stop allowing Somalia to be rayped...if that means we pay a penny more for gas, so be it. It's going to happen anyway...I'm just inviting you all to get-in on the basement floor so-to-speak. Look into these things for yourself and stop believing it just cuzz it's on TV or just because it's reported here. Call 'em on their BS and they'll at least slow down feeding it. And I'm not looking to change everyones way of thinking. My goal is 30...and I'm looking for No. 22.
