London is burning, but children are still dying in Somalia

Is the Arab Spring of Blood spreading to the UK as London is engulfed in the inferno of arsonists and looters on rampage? But as London is burning hundreds of children are still dying in the famine ravaging Somalia.

Who was the 29 years old bloke that was killed in exchange of gunfire with police in Tottenham in the twilight of last Saturday?

Would the death of that man be enough to enrage the hundreds of lunatics burning and looting in Birmingham, Canning Town, Manchester, Salford and still spreading?

Well, the pangs of dying children are echoing from Somalia.
