Radical Islam Enters War With Ethiopia In Somalia

Islamic Terrorists aligned with al-Qaeda and the Taliban have essentially taken control over all of southern Somalia (including Mogadishu). They have been imposing sharia law, have murdered foreign Christians and have executed fellow Muslims for watching the World Cup soccer on television this past summer.

Now they have declared war on Neighboring Ethiopia because that country has placed its troops in northern Somalia to help protect the U.N.-recognized government of Somalia holed up in the city of Baidoa.

In response Ethiopia has not launched air attacks against Islamist strongholds.

The Islamist leadership has responded by calling the Ethiopians "cowards" for refusing to fight hand-to-hand and face-to-face.

There is little doubt that there will be much "up close and personal" fighting in the upcoming days and weeks.

The greatest fear is that this fighting could spread to neighboring Sudan and Kenya and destablize the entire region.

No doubt the radical Islamists are hoping that this will happen.
