    It seems and sounds that if a nation's people and plight aren't constantly a part of the mainstream media's nightly newcasts we kinda sorta presume and assume those folks aren't important/relevant/significant anymore!?!

    I wouldn't tell that to media icon K'Naan etc.

    I. e., those other nations recently in the news are also on the African continent, and how goes their fates etc. indirectly or directly affect other people of African descent, as well...

    what will happen to help the people of Somalia?

    Nothing, Nada, not a dawgone thing!

    For the next 5 years they will be dumped on dawged on and degraded, like another Congo

    Toxic dumping of nuclear waste has become as profitable to some mafia, as drugs, and Somalia is the prome target

    also the EU restarants straped for US tourist dollars, have no desire to stop starving the masses there and looting their cash "sea crops" like lobsters, king crabs and prawns

    as well as stealing every darn thing with fins and gills that swims in Somalia's territorial waters

    Do keep in mind our peoples legacy etc. here, on this continent/in this nation, whereas us going from slavery to freedom etc. wasn't/isn't allegorical/very literal...

    Hence is why I also believe there are just abandoned (not 'lost') causes elsewhere...

    I. e., do consider else well what even the black majority in South Africa were up against, and however flawed the outcome, no white minority predetermines their fate and/or their nation's, these days!

    Etc.

    Whites own every single diamond, platinum and gold mine, and
    much of the major manufacturing

    so since the ANC signed a non nationalization clause, guess what not only does 2 percent f whites there still control the wealth in South Africa

    The poverty rate for Black folks is worse then during the time of aparthied,
    while whites enjoy a higher standard of living then in EU
    and white corporations pull in trillions from the devaluation of the US dollar, and US wars, and China and the world's
    mad rush to buy gold as a safety net!

    Do the math, look at who makes the most money there and what companies and who owns them and runs them

    Why be upset about folks beng blunt about an illness?
    A question was askd about Somalia, and a prognosis was given

    Now if folks desire to discuss a diagnosis

    then let's discuss it but, what would be the reason to make such a statement about white folks in South Africa, epecialy since Back folks are catching more hell there as we speak.

    Look at the recent SA news from each month going back to January

    and it is the only African nation with a nuclear power plant.
    Statistics show that folks living 15 miles close to any reactor have greater incidents of breast cancer and and leukemia in children:SuN041:

    Did or do you have anything to claim or say that justified all of the support for the ANC etc. and their efforts to topple the white apartheid regime?

    I don't mean to imply or suggest you also believe that the rest of us born 'brain dead':

    But you would have us to believe it was all much to do about nothing!

    Otherwise I can both agree that some movements didn't achieve their goals while also applaud their mainstays etc. for what they did!

    So why such one sided takes on the aftermath of various freedom struggles?

    The aformentioned one guesses has more than me continuing to find your commentaries defeatist and fatalistic!

    I also do feel and think you can do much better than that!

    Good question and my only answer is "I don't know".

    However, I do find interesting the discussion here so far considering the following.
