US Troops Attack Somalia
US Confirms Invasion, Won't Say Why
by Jason Ditz, September 14, 2009

Following confirmation by the French military that they definitely weren’t in the process of invading Somalia, the United States military is now confirming that it is, in fact, American forces that are pouring into the southern portion of the country in a helicopter-backed invasion.

US military officials confirmed to the Associated Press today that forces from the US Joint Special Operations Command had invaded the lawless African nation, and were the ones responsible for the attack on the tiny village near Barawa this morning that was the first staging ground of the attack.

What the officials wouldn’t comment on was exactly why the United States, which launched a failed “peacekeeping” operation in the nation in 1993 and backed an Ethiopian invasion in 2007, had decided to launch yet another foreign adventure, though media outlets speculated that it was probably something to do with al-Qaeda.

Gee - could it be because the country is in absolute lawlessness? Or that it's a major base for piracy?

It is probably Presidents Bushes fault. It is not likely Obama is going to have any imperialistic adventures.

Instead of waterboarding the prisoners will have to endure having a beer with Obama and listing to him bullshit.
