Yeah so I know no one cares about Africa...

...But since the U.S. just sent forces into Somalia, I figured, "what the hell?".

A bit of recent history about Somalia.
Article on the recent happenings there.
Moar.
Different source.

To summarize the articles, the U.S. has decided to send troops to the country of Somalia, which has been in a state of anarchy since 1991. The Christian "government", which is the one recognized by the U.N., lacks the support of the people, as well as the military strength to control the country.

The purpose for U.S. forces being sent there is supposedly the elimination of Al-Qaida operatives there, however, given the state of affairs in Iraq, and our reasons for going in there, I'm a bit skeptical, I'm also against the U.S. backing the actions of Ethiopian troops, whom had fought against the Islamic government there. In addition to this, I'm also unsure if the U.S. should be further destabilizing an already anarchic country, which is really more of a region at this point, by bombing it.

Any thoughts?
