40. The warlords aren't the problem now
For a short time in 2006 the Somalis did have peace and relative prosperity. In 2006 the Somalis defeated the warlords, but President Bush hired the Ethiopians (and the warlords) to overthrow the moderate Islamic government that defeated the warlords.

The Somalis defeated the Ethiopians and now more radical Muslims have control of much of Somalia.

Unfortunately President Obama has also taken the war path and has attacked Somalia with drones. Also, President Obama is supporting the same Muslims that President Bush got the Ethiopians to overthrow.
