Lebanon done with, Somalia next…

Am I alone in thinking we haven’t seen the last of wars via proxy?

With Lebanon still burning, Somalia appears all the more eager to become another laboratory…on our doorsteps…despite some protestations to the contrary.

This time round, it’s reportedly Egypt, Iran and Libya fanning it on one hand and the US and Ethiopia on the other.

    Appears the ICU have taken two more major towns in the last week. I can’t see this thing not escalating at this point, though US involvement will be minimal: Addis will take on the ICU alone I think.
    You forget that Eritrea also appears to be fanning things on the ICU side.
    As for wars by proxy: this does seem to be the pattern for the twenty-first century: dirty little wars all over the globe between Islamists and their enemies. Neither side wants the total war required to resolve the conflict: one side fears the devastation to itself and the world, the other knows that it can’t win. So the Christian and post-Christian West and the fundamentalists nibble away at each other in a global game of chicken, and the conflict continues to fester.
