Armed social workers

Last month, the humanitarian news agency IRIN reported that thousands of people living in refugee camps in southern Somalia have run out of food since UN food aid deliveries ceased due to rising insecurity. In addition to certain UN operations, numerous groups providing critical aid in the East African nation have been forced to suspend activities as humanitarian workers have increasingly come under attack over the last year.

I propose that this is a situation that would benefit from a military - or paramilitary - solution.
