    Somali appeal for foreign troops

    BBC NEWS | Africa | Somali appeal for foreign troops

    The speaker of Somalia's parliament has called for neighbouring states to send troops to the country within 24 hours.

    Sheikh Aden Mohamed Nur made the appeal as fierce fighting that has spread to the north of the Somali capital, Mogadishu, continued for a second day.

    Islamist forces battling the country's transitional government briefly took over a police station and other key buildings in Karan district.

    Thousands are fleeing the area, previously a refuge for the displaced.

    "The government is weakened by the rebel forces," AFP news agency quoted Sheikh Aden Mohamed Nur as saying.

    "We ask neighbouring countries - including Kenya, Djibouti, Ethiopia and Yemen - to send troops to Somalia within 24 hours."

    Very interesting I have my doults that any of the Countries that the Sheikh has ask will send in any troops

    No if he was crazy he would have asked for the Italians to come back to Somaila.

    Oh how true that is

    But even Italians would be more welcomed than Ethiopia.

    What an excellent opportunity for 'Libertarians' to take advantage of, put their money and blood where their mouths are, and finally prove once and for all that their grand economic and political theories will actually work, as well as in Zimbabwe, Zambia, and a dozen other places, of course.

    Somehow I doubt if many of them are all that anxious to actually prove anything, though, but if they did take the challenge in any numbers, at least message boards will have a lot less spam cluttering them up for a while ...
