Booo-Ya! Al-Qaida getting smoked out of Africa
We're dropping 'em in the caves of Afghanistan.
We're taking 'em out throughout Iraq.
Now we're laz'n, taz'n, and flambaying 'em in Somalia.
WASHINGTON - "The U.S. military launched a strike against several suspected members of al-Qaida in Somalia, a government official said Monday night.
The official, who spoke on condition of anonymity because of the operation's sensitivity, said at least one AC-130 gunship was used in the attack.
U.S. Navy vessels have been deployed off the coast of Somalia to make sure al-Qaida or allied jihadists don't escape the country, the State Department said last Wednesday."
Remember, Al Qaida has never won a military victory against the US. Sadly, after we take out a few hundred of them in Somalia they'll catch on and slither away into the civilian population, but at least Ethiopia, Somalia, and US forces are hot on their trail.
Of course, there's always the threat of the Democratic house accusing the President of being too aggressive against the misunderstood militants of the world and pulling funding.

The creeps are going to do it, too. Saw that submariner Teddy on the news tonight ('til I had to turn it off), talkin' about his latest bill...
Delighted with the C-130 folks!!!
