This situation is extremely serious. It's a major problem for Africa.
And other continents ! But, alas, poverty has spawned a process explosive.
And with the situation economic and financial world, the risk is to see poverty as a spreading oil slick. No, poverty, suffering, hunger, social anxiety ... this is not inevitable. The risk is tremendous to see armed conflicts in all corners of our planet. We all live on a minefield.
We have never had as much need each other...!!!

Somalia is a very sacred land,many native peoples and much heartache and suffering,the dumping of toxic waste on any mans land is crminal and should be addresed as such acts of violations,with the United Nations mandates.The water will become toxic for all those living in Somalia,and this will end all life,no animals can survive nor vegatation.It is dysentary which leads to all disease,includes symptoms of aids.Why is no one coming forward to give the Somalian peoples no assistance?The planet is in turmoil,as the people again have destroyed themselves by destroying Mother Earth.Cleansing and purging has begun and we enter into a universal shift.2012 is upon us.
