What if they had an insurgency and nobody came?

At least a dozen times over the last two or three days, I've read on lefty websites that Ethiopia and the rest of the Christian world would be facing another insurgency like Iraq (Thailand, Phillipines, Kashmir, Afghanistan etc etc) in Somalia, as soon as the United Islamic Courts clowns could stop fleeing like old women away from the tanks and helicopter gunships of the Ethiopian army.

But Kenya shut the door to the west with a big clang, and the US navy blocked the escape route south, and now there is a patch of far SouthEastern Somalia about the size of a postage stamp still controlled by the UIC. It is currently under sustained attack, and there should be zero of these guys within about a day from now.

So, who exactly is going to be in this insurgency again?
