Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
The UN imposed an arms embargo on Somalia and turned its back whilst the Islamic Courts shipped in arms from all over. ICU then marched through unarmed villages and declared its "victories". They threatened Jihad in Kenya and Ethiopia and surrounded the base of the UN recognised government. They began shelling government positions but when government and Ethiopian troops retaliated they ran back to Mogadishu, closed the schools and sent children out to fight with Eritrean weapons.

I am sorry my comments offended you but it is very important that we read everything available to form our opinions; otherwise we are in danger of becoming like Nazi or Stalinist "press button" revolutionaries with  "rent a crowd" mentality.
