Ethiopia Smacks Somalia
Ethiopia may be smarter than the United States. Islamic militants may be pushing on the wrong button. This article says Ethiopia launched air strikes in repsonse to Somalia's efforts. Ol' BC thinks the Christians in Ethiopia may be cut from a little different cloth than those in the U.S. The U.S. probably would have had the Ethiopians try offering up land to the Somalis for a month or so of peace.
Also, what is this "holy war" crap the Islamic militants are always talking about?
The militants, who want to govern Somalia according to Islamic law, invited foreign Muslims on Saturday
to join their holy war against Ethiopian troops. Many fear the fighting
could escalate into a regional battle.
“Muslims are brothers and help each
other,” said Sheik Yusuf Indahaadde, national security chairman for the Council
of Islamic Courts. “We have a right to call our brothers and sisters to help us
in this holy war.”
I'm totally unaware of anyone trying to wipe out Islam. Jews yes.(That would be the Muslims trying to wipe them out.) But, Islam, the religion of peace (sarcasm off), I think not. May not be a bad idea though.
Just a thought.
