Somalia's next.

I've blogged about this before, but it bears repeating: Somalia is falling apart. The country is in grave danger of being conquered by Muslim extremist rebels, so much danger that it is accepting military aid from the Ethiopian government, as well as the UN. It seems that, despite the rhetoric about trying to spread democracy and freedom in the Middle East, when it comes to Africa, the world powers really can't be bothered to get involved. The article details what the rebels are trying to institute in Somalia -- basically, Taliban 2.0.

If there were a God -- there isn't, but if there were -- he'd have to have a taste for Whack-a-Mole. How else to explain the way the same stupid, vicious, cruel ideas keep cropping up in different places, propping up different regimes?
