Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
I disagree on an other level. Though Ethiopia was supported by the US and even though the US participated in the war, I see this mainly as an escalation of a regional conflict that has been brewing for a long time.

I wrote this diary last summer when the first regular Ethiopian troops was reported in Somalia. The short version is that Ethiopia has been involved in the Somali civil war for a long time and when a non-ethiopian side was winning they steped up their intervention to regular army units with more heavy equipment.
