    No I don't.

    And they won't kill each other. One will emerge the winner

    U.S. support key to Ethiopia's invasion - USATODAY.com
    The United States has quietly poured weapons and military advisers into Ethiopia, whose recent invasion of Somalia opened a new front in the Bush administration's war on terrorism.

    A Christian-led nation in sub-Saharan Africa, surrounded almost entirely by Muslim states, Ethiopia has received nearly $20 million in U.S. military aid since late 2002. That's more than any country in the region except Djibouti.

    Last month, thousands of Ethiopian troops invaded neighboring Somalia and helped overturn a fundamentalist Islamic government that the Bush administration said was supported by al-Qaeda.
    Guess what the response was?!
    Ah yes, you guessed it.

    Call for jihad as Ethiopian troops go into Somalia - Telegraph
    Radical Muslims controlling much of southern Somalia yesterday declared jihad, or holy war, on Ethiopia after accusing its troops of capturing a town taken by the fundamentalists last month.
    Which then eventually led to ....
    There have been celebrations in the Somalia capital Mogadishu after Ethiopian troops withdrew from their two main bases in the city.
    BBC NEWS | Africa | Somali joy as Ethiopians withdraw

    I am referring to the Bush Administration's intervention in Somalia in the name of the War on Terror. It has helped to destroy that wretched country's best chance of peace in a generation, left more than a million Somalis dead, homeless or starving, and achieved the precise opposite of its original goal. Far from stamping out an Islamic militancy that scarcely existed, the intervention has turned Somalia into a breeding ground for Islamic extremists and given al-Qaeda a valuable foothold in the Horn of Africa.

    Rewind to the early summer of 2006. For 15 years, since the fall of the dictator Mohamed Siad Barre, feuding warlords had made Somalia a byword for anarchy and terrorism - the archetypal failed state. A tenth of its population had been killed. A million had fled abroad. At that point the warlords were finally routed, despite covert CIA backing, by a remarkable public uprising in support of the so-called Islamic Courts movement that promised to end the lawlessness.

    And now look!
    Al Shabab which was dominated by moderates who reigned in it's extremists side was given free reign to take control because a foreign country was occupying it's country and NOW it has Al Qaeda links and controls the majority of the South.

    Well done US. Another job well done.
    Really.
    Where would we be without your guiding hand leading us to the promised land

    Al-Shabab and Al-Qaeda: Playing Americans for suckers | Non-Intervention.com

    The suicide bombing in Uganda’s capital of Kampala by the Somali Islamist group al-Shabab serves several agendas. While the facile and clueless Western media call it an “anti-World Cup attack” and the lame Obama White House says it proves al-Qaeda’s “racism” toward Africans, the reality is that from al-Sahbab’s perspective the attack is a logical and necessary response to the prolonged U.S.- and Western-backed intervention in Somalia. (How long, one wonders, will it take U.S. and Western officials to learn people don’t like being occupied?) The Kampala attack also is another episode in al-Qaeda’s ongoing campaign to lure the United States into more interventions in the Muslim world.

    At the most basic level, there would be no al-Shabab in Somalia — at least not at its present strength, reach, and popularity — if Washington had not panicked several years ago at the thought of an Islamist organization known as the “Islamic Courts” taking power in Somalia. The Islamic Courts’ had all but displaced a feckless, corruption-ridden UN-backed Transitional Federal Government (TFG), and was beginning to bring a harsh but effective law-and-order system to Somalia for the first time in decades. Under President Bush, however, Washington could not stand the thought of a working Islamic government and so labored overtly and covertly for its demise.

    US can be played so damn easy it's almost cringing to observe. It's paranoia has not served it well.

    What would you target?

    Show us? That'd be nice. Instead of making baseless claims like your usually do.

    You honestly don't know the difference between criminals and terrorists?
