Remember al Qaeda?
Posted by: mcq on Friday, November 03, 2006

Remember al Qaeda's stated goal of taking over a country so it could base out of it, train it's minions and then make war to reestablish the Caliphate?

Well, it's first try was Afghanistan. It didn't quite succeed. Second, Iraq. A dismal failure.

But fear not, AQ apparently have found a more likely target:
Somalia faces the prospect of all-out war, the country's Foreign Minister has said, warning that Islamist forces in the country are receiving support from al-Qa'ida.

As peace talks between the fragile transitional government and the Union of Islamic Courts (UIC) broke down, Ismael Mohamoud Hurreh told The Independent that war would break out in the Horn of Africa if the Islamic Courts "are not checked definitively".

He accused the Islamic Courts, which control the capital, Mogadishu, plus large swaths of southern Somalia, of bringing radical Islamist fighters into the country. "They are coming by ship. Look who is coming through Mogadishu port - al-Qai'da, people from Pakistan, Saudi Arabia, Eritrea, Yemen and Chechnya."
Other than the usual taped bluster, AQ has been pretty quiet in Iraq. Maybe that's because the Iraqi people, in the 90% range, completely reject them and their agenda. So what's a terrorist to do?

Look south, of course.

Please Please Please...set up shop in Somolia...I think we have some payback to drop on that place!!!! The good news is we won’t have to use those expensive JDAMs, we can just line up the B52s wingtip to wingtip and carpet bomb the crap out of the place. BTW...no Colin Powell ’break it you bought it’ deal either. Payback for blackhawk down finally.

What’s the rate of exchange?

How many Muslims need to die to make us even for Blackhawk Down?

I actually asked one guy this and his answer was "all of them".
