Why I think we should blow up the Himalaya Mountains

I think we should blow up Mt. Everest and the rest of the Himalaya Mountains. Many rain clouds can’t pass through the mountain range to Africa because they are so tall. That is part if the reason why the Sahara desert covers a third of the continent of Africa. I can no longer sit back and do nothing while these mountains continue to steal water that belongs to the Sahara desert.
Helping poverty stricken areas of Africa is an important thing to do, but I am pretty sure that Africa would prefer having the Himalaya Mountains blown up, making a third of their continent habitable, over current aid. The Himalayas don’t even know what to do with all of the water they steal. They just dump it on India during the monsoon season, which lasts for four months and gives India 80 percent of its precipitation for the year.
It wouldn’t be that hard to blow up the Himalaya Mountains. I can think of no fewer than six movie plots where it would work out perfectly. In one plot, the hero frees Tibet, which unfortunately gets blown up because of its proximately to the Himalayas. In another plot, the hero decides to quit smoking.
