MOGADISHU, SOMALIA--Secretary of State
Madeleine Albright arrived in Mogadishu Monday,
beginning a four-day diplomatic visit to the totally
fucked-up nation of Somalia.
"The ravages of civil war have taken a terrible toll on
Somalia, claiming the lives of more than 500,000 people
since 1995," said Albright in an address before the United
Somali Congress. "Another 300,000 Somalis have died of
disease and hunger. Your nation is truly up shit creek."
Albright called for an increase in U.N. funds for
resettlement of the nearly two million Somali refugees
displaced by political unrest. She also pledged $800 million
in U.S. aid for food and medical supplies, though she
acknowledged that it would make little difference in a
country so profoundly under the shithammer.
"Somalia is fragmented under the control of a dozen
rival clan-based ruling factions, each with its own military
force," Albright said. "The resultant internal fighting,
compounded by perpetual border tension with Ethiopia,
makes it difficult to establish the kind of stability necessary
for sustained, substantive economic development."
Added Albright: "Christ, this place is fucked."
In addition to pledging $800 million in aid,
Albright said the U.S. will finally restore economic
ties severed in 1989 due to human-rights violations
committed by the now-deposed Siad Barre government.
"By driving out the corrupt Siad Barre regime,
Somalia has shown a commitment to reform," Albright said.
"Steps are being taken to establish a climate in which democracy
and free-market capitalism can take root.
But despite such progress, we must not lose sight
of the fact that this nation is in such a shitstorm of trouble,
it is unlikely ever to happen. I mean, there's fucked,
and then there's total, reamed-up-the-ass, fucked-in-half
Albright's visit included a tour along the only paved road in Somalia.
The road runs from Berbera in the north to Mogadishu, and then
down to Chisimayu, a city Albright said is all the way in the shitter.
"The U.N. classifies Somalia as a developing nation," Albright said.
"Well, I didn't see very much developing going on in Chisimayu.
You don't even want to know where these people go to
the bathroom. I practically fucking puked."
U.S. political experts say Albright's assessment of the situation is
"Right now, three different men claim to be ruling Somalia,"
said Dr. James Knox, a Yale University African Studies
professor specializing in the insane shit going on in the Gulf of Aden
region. "A clan chief in Northern Somalia has proclaimed independence
and leads a government in Hargeysa, while another clan chief,
Hussein Aideed, recently nominated himself president of the
Somali National Alliance. Then there's Ali Mahdi Muhammad,
who presides over the United Somali Congress.
Could you imagine if that kind of fucked-up shit went on in America?"
Environmental factors have exacerbated the plight of Somalia,
which has been hit by crippling droughts and massive flooding.
Earlier this year, the Jubba River in southern Somalia flooded,
causing massive crop devastation and leaving hundreds
of thousands unbelievably fucked.
"The factors responsible for the chaos in Somalia
are complex and varied," Knox said, "but whatever the cause,
one thing is clear: This East African nation of nine million
is taking it in the ass, big-time. And as far as I can tell,
there's pretty much not a chance in hell they'll be able to un-fuck
themselves anytime soon."
