Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
I certianly read the news about oil exploration in the past Us intervention. Accordign to what I recalled, ther esults were negative.
Besides, taking into account how difficutl to have a ceasefire and stability in Somalia I doubt the Busha dministration is looking for oil there.

Another compeltely different things is the relevance of Somalia as a country whcih is very close to a basic oil route.

It certainly makes sense that the US does nto want a war there where one of the elements has developed weapon technology. It is mcuh mroe better to ahve a peaceful coutnry or a limited war with limited weapons means.

A pleasure

I therefore claim to show, not how men think in myths, but how myths operate in men's minds without their being aware of the fact. Levi-Strauss, Claude
