Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
For the larger picture of the US involvement in Africa I recommend b real´s Understanding AFRICOM at Moon of Alabama. It is really good.

But although the US government was clearly pushing for war and participating in it, I think there would have been a war anyway. Ethiopia and Eritrea has been conducting a proxy war in Somalia for quite some time now, I wrote some about it here last summer.

Thanks for the link!  Actually I just discovered the site the other day and was quite impressed.  The link you cite has now motivated me to put it on my blogroll!
