A U.S. missile attack on a terrorist allegedly hiding out in the Somalia town of Dobley did considerable damage by killing 3 cows, 1 calf, destroyed a shack and injured six cviilians. The “al-Qaida terrorist,” who was believed to be Saleh Ali Nabhan, escaped unharmed. This was the fourth American attack on Somalia soil since the Bush administration encouraged and supported an Ethiopian invasion of the country in order to destroy its Islamic government, the former Islamic Courts(UIC) which briefly had taken over and restored some semblance of order in the chaos known as Somalia. The Christian Ethiopians are now dealing with hostile Islamic insurgents as popular opinion appears to be against outside forces in their nation.
One can only wonder if President Bush has a plan for dealing with terrorism. He invaded Iraq and created a dozen new terrorist groups in that nation. He encourages a Christian lead Ethiopian invasion of a Muslim nation and apparently believes it will not result in some sort of rebellion against outside forces. Each passing day reveals further evidence the “fight for democracy” would be more accurately entitled, “the fight to support terrorism.”
