Liban Ibrahim, a 30-year-old bus driver in the Somali capital, said: “The world does not care about our plight. The United Nations is busy issuing statements when innocent civilians are dying every day.”

Issuing statements about whats going on but never really doing will be noticed soon enough. Apparently the situation is just so bad that it’s kept western journalist out and Arab broadcaster Al Jazeera has been shut down. So the news comes mostly from a small group of brave locals filing to international news agencies.

It’s hard to care when no one knows whats going on. It’s hard to do anything when you didn’t know something needed to be done. We know now though right? So I guess the real question is if we’re still not going to do anything then why doesn’t anyone seem to care?
