(Washington) - A new U.S. educational program was launched today, sponsored by the U.S. State Dept, offering a "Summer in Somalia" to any U.S. citizen who thinks that America sucks.

The program entails a 3-month summer stay in Somalia, living under native conditions. Under the program, any U.S. citizen who thinks America sucks can go to Somalia for the summer, live in a typical native sticks & straw hut and experience, first hand, the realities of starvation, extreme poverty, lack of sanitation, disease, political chaos, corruption, lawlessness and a complete lack of freedom.

In addition, as part of the daily dose of cultural reality, there is no internet access, no cell phone service, no TV, no electricity, no plumbing and no food.

On site free medical care wil be provided by Michael Moore.

A State Dept spokesperson, commenting on the Summer in Somalia program stated, "After a summer in Somalia, if they survive, any U.S. citizen who still wants to think America sucks will at least have something to compare it to."

The reality based Summer in Somalia program is free. It's open to any U.S. citizen who believes that the U.S. stinks, and is recommended for U.S. college students, university professors, ACLU members, Hollywood millionaires who hate capitalism, and limousine liberals.

Leading by example, Democrats Nancy Pelosi, Harry Reid and Ted Kennedy are slated to be among the first participants in the program.
