    This is just horrific and it's been going on as long as I can remember. It just seems that there is no solution that wouldn't require a complete violent takeover of the entire country. You've got Al Qaida in there blocking food deliveries, the so called militia stealing the food and selling it. What do you do when a country has completely fallen apart?

    I think north Somalia is actually livable. It would be interesting if you could go in and support a mass exodus of "honest" Somalis to the north and defend the line while trying to construct a new country above the line. Below the new country line you let Al-Shabab rot. I'm sure this idea is idiotic though :)

    You would think they could (at a minimum) agree to secure farmland?
