Having had the Union of Islamic Courts totally obliterated on its behalf by the Ethiopian army, the Somali government has begun the task of governing the country. Virtually every mainstream media report I read was certain that gangsterism, warlordism and a return of the UIC were days away...
"Omar Finish handed over six vehicles mounted with anti-aircraft guns. On Wednesday, two other leaders gave up 60 battle wagons and 300 fighters."
Much to the disgust and chagrin of the MSM, it looks like Somalia may well be on its way back to being a nation. Wheres the Islamist insurgency then? Oh, thats right, they were shredded by Puff the magic dragon.
Of course, no matter how many times events play out in the way we predict, those on the left never pay attention, never learn the lessons, never care. "War solves nothing". Really? Ask the people of Mogadishu.
