Bush as Global Menace: Somalia
As we approach the fourth anniversary of President BushÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s Ã¢â‚¬ËœvictoryÃ¢â‚¬Â in Iraq, it looks likeÃ¢â‚¬â€œwhile everyone is talking about withdrawal dates and surges in BaghdadÃ¢â‚¬â€œ Dubya and his cohorts have been responsible for a similar horrific disaster in Somalia, in the Horn of Africa.
Using the infinite resources of the Internet (to go beyond my previous post), IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ve tried to cobble together an understanding of what lies behind the current horrific images coming from what is probably the most failed of all the globeÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s failed states.
ItÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s an approximation. If substantially true, however, it indicates that Somalia is another hornetÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s nest the Bush administration has stumbled intoÃ¢â‚¬â€œand is now obliteratingÃ¢â‚¬â€œobsessed as it is with the Ã¢â‚¬Å“war against terrorism.Ã¢â‚¬Â ItÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s an obsession that so far has sewn only death and chaos and strengthened rather than destroyed Al Qaeda and radical jihad.
