U.S. forces on hand for clash in Somalia
I can't think of a better example of how we're providing incentives and support to allow nations to protect their own territories against violent upheaval by Islamo-Fascists.
"MOGADISHU, Somalia - Somalian government troops backed by Ethiopian soldiers battled about 600 Islamic militiamen yesterday on the southern tip of this Horn of Africa nation, and U.S. Navy forces prevented the gunmen from fleeing by sea, authorities said.
Dinari said that some fighters were trying to escape by sea but that U.S. Navy forces were deployed to stop them. Three al-Qaeda suspects wanted in the 1998 bombings of U.S. embassies in East Africa are believed to be leaders"
Once again, Afghanistan's fall to the Taliban is an example for all vulnerable nations around the world. If you do not fight back, and fight hard, your nation will fall.
Ethiopia and Somalia are choosing to fight back.
Good on our Navy for giving them a hand.
