Somalia: The U.S. War on Terror Expands


Last week I asked how long U.S. troops off the coast of Somalia could stay offshore. Well, as of today they are also in the air above Somalia, as an Air Force AC-130 gunship (according to a Fox TV host just now, a well-known "killing machine, destroying everything in its path") has "launched a strike against suspected Al Qaeda members in Somalia," saith Fox News, leaving "casualties on the ground, but it is not clear if any are suspected terrorists." Well, at least for sure it got some of the people who might have been in or near their path.
