Somalia declares war, rest of world realizes that Somalia still exists

Most people have probably forgotten about the Islamist takeover of Somalia, especially in light of the Lebanon situation. The leader of the Islamist militias declared holy war today on Ethiopian troops in Somalia protecting the Somalian government. While this could get ugly very fast, we should realize that Ethiopia has recognized the threat of a possible Taliban-style regime on their borders, and is trying to do something about it.

And we should be supporting them, not "urging restraint."
