    On the African front? This war has no fronts. It’s not even a war. More like a forward police operation. Maybe too forward.

    Good luck with that, Mr. Secretary General. Let us know who responds to your 911 call . . . we might need them too.

    Always crack a smile at the ‘War that must not be named’ meme. Too fitting.

    Blackhawk Down was twenty years ago.
    Not sure it is fair to think of Somalia as the same situation as Mali, CAR, or Nigeria.

    Maybe it’s time to build a wall around Mogadishu for Al Shabab, and a naval blockade.

    Not entirely true to say ‘things are not going well’, right? The French seem to have done pretty well kicking the Islamic terrorists out of Mali, with the warm support of most of the population. Just keep mowing the buggers down while winning hearts and minds … we will win in the end.
