Radio Station Manager Killed in Somalia

The manager of a radio station critical of both the Somali government and the Islamic militants who have been trying to topple it was killed outside his home - eighth journalist slain in the country this year.

Yet another pathetic US foreign policy play for profits from others' resources. It leaves the people open to wanton human rights abuses by unelected governments given reign by us just to oppose elected governments we don't like - yes, Somalia elected an Islamic government, this is the price we are forcing it to pay. It's so wrong. Imagine if we all had electric cars 20 years ago, what would this world look like?
