includes a guest editorial today by William R. Polk, who is the first American I've heard who has even mentioned the cruel war fomented by the United States against Somalia for which blood-mouth Jendayi E. Frazer is the biggest cheerleader:
Somalia is a worse mess.If you remember the movie, "Black Hawk Down", the really bad guys were the warlords. The Somalis agreed. So when we got out, they threw out the warlords. The only replacements they could find were the religious leaders. The Muslim Fundamentalist are not our favorite people, but they were the only force that could stop the warlords’ extortion, rape and murder, and the Somalis supported them. Now we have encouraged and paid the Ethiopians to invade Somalia and drive them out. We also committed our special forces and our Navy in this attack. It worked – temporarily and at the cost of great human suffering – and has made the Somalis hate us. Worse, it has brought no political solution that anyone thinks can last. The war has not been won, merely worsened.
