We hold that the first statement is true. The political instability leads to a power struggle that is fierce, and the government does not care about its people or don't have the time to make the changes in the economy. The second statement is correct, because the militias are one of the organized parts of the Somali society at this point. The third point is also correct and is not happening only in Somalia. Therefore, D is the correct choice.
