Somalia Hello?

The “nation” of Somalia has been off limits to American military forces since the 1993 episode which is known as “Black Hawk Down” when a US helicopter was shot down and military personnel, not only killed, but their bodies were dragged through the streets of Mogadishu. It now appears that US military personnel have returned to Somalia to train and equip members of the Somalia “army.” African Union soldiers already are fighting in Somalia against Islamic militants, and they have also been trained and equipped by the American military. Logic would suggest the best policy is not to have American or any European forces in Somalia. This is one battle that must be waged by those in Africa, not those from western nations.

There are times when it best policy to have a policy of doing nothing. Stay away from a fight that can only be won –or lost– by those from Africa!!
