Fears of an "all-out war" in the Horn of Africa rose Friday with the news that Ethiopian troops are moving closer to Somalia's captial, Mogadishu, which is controlled by Islamist militants. Reuters reports there are conflciting reports about what is happening.
Ethiopian soldiers were moving beyond the provincial seat of the interim Somali government in Baidoa to the towns of Buur Hakaba and Baledogle, various local residents said. Addis Ababa denies it has soldiers there, while the Somali government, which has little authority beyond Baidoa, said people were confusing its militia because they were wearing uniforms donated from Ethiopia.

ahh, someone's thinking,...
This is sounding bad
Maybe we ought to let Ethiopia annex Somalia.
Somalia's been a failed state for what? 300,000,000 years now?
Perhaps it's time for someone else to rule the land... Like someone who can actually form a working government.
Just a thought.
Let me guess....those wacky Quakers causing problems again!?
My thoughts exactly.
Hmmmm....Falashas....Ethiopian Jews....Mohammandan ragheads....more blood on the ground.
Ethiopia was also the only area not overrun by Muslim Empire of old.
They don't need our permission. But it would be a great way to become a maritime nation again since it lost it's coastline when Eritrea was formed.
More war by muslims against non-muslims. When will the world wake up and start killing these vermin en masse? We need 100 million mulsims dead tomorrow.
Meles is a kleptocrat dictator. While infinitely better than Mengisthu and the communists, we should never put too much faith in him.
Won't stop me from cheering him on in a fight with the somalis.
I'm with you. Let the Ethiopians clean up the vipers nest. I hope they can. Those Muslims fight very dirty and having it taken care of locally is much preferable to them whining to the UN to come in and help (the useless fools) or expecting the US once again to save the day for everybody.
Well no one in the clinton presidency were thinking when he sent troops there. He didn't want to show disproportionate strength. Our marines died due to his lack of being a man.
Just turn a blind eye to a Rwandan or Sudan-style 'cleansing' of Somalia... then repopulate with Ethopians.
Problem solved. And the UN won't care any more than they did about Rwanda or the Sudan.
