Bill Roggio, freelancer extraordinaire, is back from his latest embed in Iraq.
An issue I’ve been trying to make sure didn’t go unnoticed, the deteriorating situation in Somalia, gets big coverage on the Fourth Rail:
- Somalia Panel Discussion
- The Battle of Baidoa
- The Battle of Somalia
- The TFG and Ethiopia Punch back in Somalia
- Islamic Courts in Retreat in Somalia
Those following the Long Global War on TerrorTM using more than just headlines and political talking points will realize that Somalia is a major battleground in what is truly a World War.
It’s difficult to say, of course, but I suspect that much of the misery we’ve seen in the last sixteen years is a result of our lack of will on that battleground.
