Hundreds of foreigners fighting alongside Somali Islamic insurgents have driven this week's fierce battles against government forces, which have killed more than 100 people, the U.N. envoy to Somalia said Friday.
Concern that the government might fall is mounting. Observers fear that if the al-Qaida linked insurgents seize the capital, they will gain a safe haven on the Horn of Africa.
So what does the US do, invade Somalia "... to save it from itself"?!?!?
We can see just how swimmingly that strategy is working in Afghanistan and Iraq.
