Sharply deteriorating security in Kenya is threatening their ability to provide humanitarian assistance to hundreds of thousands of vulnerable people & World Food Program can't get FOOD to 100,000's of refugees in neighboring countries.

How horrible that there are trucks and food ready that just can't get into these areas to feed the people because the area is so unstable and dangerous! Even the basics are not being met at the moment.

Isn't Senator Obama's grandmother still in Kenya? Can't he do something?

Having a conflict classified as internal or civil it abnegates the UN's responsibility to establish peace and security. With economists and msm creating and pressing the ideology forward that this is an internal issue it provided an "out" for the UN. While somewhat economical Kenya's conflict is tribal and the tribes extend across national boundaries. A UN Mandate for peace keeping/conflict resolution forces could have and should be set in place before this humanitarian crisis begins to rival those north and west. right now this is just another example of the UN's inability to intervene and resolve these issues.

Yes Mary Riley so is all of his family on his father's side. Obama mania in the US pales in comparison to Obama-mania in Kenya. He did make a phone call to Odinga as this began to be international public knowledge. So far he's the only one.

You mean the UN should intervene? Of course they should! For the women and children if nothing else! Noted!
