Somalia Update

SOMALIA UPDATE….A couple of months ago conservative apologists were falling all over themselves lauding the success of Ethiopia’s brutality-based approach to quelling the Islamist insurgency in neighboring Somalia. Today, that approach isn’t looking so good. Eric Martin comments:

Why, it’s almost as if insurgencies can get by without the aid and comfort of American leftists, humanitarian groups, the UN and the treasonous Western media. One might even conclude that, at times, insurgents have goals and motivations that provide their own animating impetus — not derived solely from the domestic political situation in the occupier’s home country. Imagine the implications.
