US Launches First Airstrike Against ISIS Fighters In Somalia

The Pentagon’s gradually escalating combat mission in Somalia reached another important milestone Friday - one of many that have occurred since the inauguration of President Donald Trump - when the military revealed that it had carried out the first airstrikes against Islamic State-linked fighters in Somalia.

The news comes as ISIS forces in Syria were driven out of their last remaining patch of territory as Syrian Army forces retook the eastern city of Deir Ezzor, inspiring even anti-Assad pundits to marvel at the Army’s advance against seemingly insurmountable odds.

A US official told the Associated Press the strikes were carried out in northeastern Somalia, with the first around midnight local time and the second later in the morning. The official was not authorized to discuss the mission publicly so spoke on condition of anonymity.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The US government is in Somalia for the same reasons it is occupying large swathes of real estate in so many other countries; to regime change the government toward a US/Western-centric stance; to expropriate natural resources to which the US government has absolutely no moral right; and to insure that those resources are sold only in US dollars, and to countries of which we approve.

No real surprise here.
