It didn’t take long to see the fallout from Monday’s US incursion into Southern Somalia. Just days later insurgents launched a deadly car bombing against an African Union (AU) base, killing at least 16 people.
It has underscored just how fragile the AU force in the nation is, but the attack has also led to yet more calls for international intervention by both the AU and the self-proclaimed Somali government.
It's all about the untapped and unexploited resources that we are in Somalia in the first place.
"Nation-building" is just a polite euphemism for setting up a government pliable to the West's demand for those resources.
