We, the US, launched an air attack against an area in Somalia. Up to yesterday, no one had reported that level of cooperation with the current government of Somalia, nor Ethiopia, which if you were not paying attention, sent in their military 1-2 weeks ago to support the "weak" government in Somalia.

The US used our heavy attack craft, no, not the Warthog, the AC130. Yes, take a C130 and put in gatling cannons and howitzers.

This is covered under the War on Terror. There has been mention of links between the group targeted and Al Qaeda. Or even that Al Qaeda members were physically there.

I have no comments as of yet as I have seen only one article on this, and there is no "report from the ground" on the results of said attack.

The Ethiopians are acting as hired guns for the US. Ever since Eritria became independent (and they had their own little religious war) Ethiopia has been carrying forward the banner of christendo. against the Islamicist's.
Somalia had recently established some sort of order (be it somewhat medieval) with the Islamic Jurists establishing their control (and shira law) throughout most of the land. This of course was just a boon to interntional terrorism (especially since they kicked out the warloards that kicked us out).
I guess if they won't have the peace we impose and choose leaders we don't approve, we retain the right to remove them.
Do you think the forceful conquest of an Islamic fundementalist state by "christtians" will lead to a more peaceful world? Or is Bushco just doing it's best to hasten armageddon?
