At least 1,000 UPDF soldiers will leave next month for Somalia to replace one battalion which is coming home after one year of keeping peace in the war-torn Somali.
How in the name of all that's reasonable can any one characterize what these soldiers are doing as "keeping the peace in Somalia"?!?
These forces are simply propping up a US-sponsored government which is too weak to really take care of its people in any meaningful way.
As with most of the rest of Africa, it's all about the resources here, and who gets access to them.
