Somalia: We Need Guns, Cash

September 26, 2013 by  

Somalia: We Need Guns, Cash, Somalia’s defense minister made an international plea to aid its struggling government, saying it cannot fight the terrorist group behind Kenya’s mall massacre without more funding and weapons from the global community.

“We are not looking at jet fighters. It’s small arms,” Abdulhakim Haji Faqi told NBC News. “We need the funding and resources.”

He warned that the attack on the Westgate mall should be a wake-up call illustrating that Somalia-based terror organization al Shabaab was now a “global problem.”

“We need to defeat them ideologically and militarily,” Faqi said. “If we had more weapons, they would be less of a problem by now. … The way to help is to fund the Somali government.”
