Unfortunately, Somalia (and much of Africa in general), suffers from infighting, poverty, and disease based on it's own geopolitical boundaries more than their own doing. We have tribes that want nothing to do with each other forced to identify as the same nation despite massive cultural differences, and unlike in the case of the French, the Basques, Occitans, and Bretons, they've had almost a millennium of unity (sans 100 Year War) to work out the kinks and differences to become a united people.

These countries in Africa have had, what, 200 years to settle the kinks? It's not going to work out in that (relatively) short amount of time. France and Germany took 1057 (1945) years to finally no longer be hostile towards one another after the splintering of the Carolingian Empire in 888. Slaves have been free from America for 154 years, and we still have massive cultural conflicts from it that may not go away for another two hundred years or so.

Long story short, it's not feasible to fix African countries from their woes (perhaps poverty and disease if we funded efforts to improve conditions in those countries, but money is a problem even today) as long as infighting continues, which may not settle down for another several hundred years just because of these damned cultural differences.
Actually, Africa really isnt doing that bad. China, The Home Team (been 3 different occasions myself), and others have invested quite a bit into it. Especially China. Not only there but in the Middle East as well.

His stupid tweets shouldn't even be a headline......the 9/11 responders getting blocked should be the big deal.

Rand Paul could try spin it any other way, it's still the most callous shit I've ever seen.

Nothing's going to happen.....liberals have to focus on getting someone who can beat him in 2020, none of these chincy shit is going to get him impeached point, blank period.

You can't charge Trump with obstruction of Justice....even though the guy said he totally did that, until he isnt president.

People will try imoeach....will get blocked everytime and even if the guy loses the election.....who's to say he gives up power....that is how slow moving coupes work.

Maybe if Americans actually looked out into the rest of the world or knew actual history, they would've seen that a mile away.

Welp.

Jeffrey Epstein is dead, and any info he may have carried with him has gone to the grave alongside him.

Anyone else feeling a bit suspect about this?

Dude had to have been on 24 hour suicide watch I'd assume, but other than possible negligence I don't really find it that suspicious that he killed himself instead of taking the time for trafficking

Not only was he on 24 hour watch, he also had vital information on his accomplices that the justice system was hoping to wrangle from him. I just can't believe he was able to commit suicide so easily. Something stinks.

The key here is that he was SUPPOSED to be on 24 hour suicide watch, I'd wanna see more details on how he killed himself before I decide some conspiracy is at play when it could easily just be negligence on the guys that were supposed to be watching him

this ain't the forum where the posters wear tin foil hats. If you want the type of response like that, you won't get it here. The posters are far too intelligent here to get caught up in that.

However, we all get to watch AOC and the rest of the "Squad" waste more tax payer dollars on stupid tax funded meetings to "Demand Answers", rather than helping their own constituents.

Anyone want to discuss actual problems here or is it still going to be a mimic of Television? I've seen enough episodes of "Orange Man Bad" to know we are going to have to see four more seasons of that show.

I mean, we can discuss the homeless epidemic, the very real threat of the black plague returning, constituents Getting ignored, etc.

I mean shit, they have had to close down playgrounds for fear children will be attacked by rodents. The suicide rate keeps rising. People are dumping garbage in the middle of large metropolitan areas. Yet everyone keeps focusing on Jibba jabba.
