(Click to enlarge)
Ethiopian troops are already in Somalia, supporting the provisional government besieged by the Courts. Ethiopia is a huge country with a population of seventy something millions, almost half of them Muslims. The Islamic Courts repeatedly threatened to declare Jihad on Ethiopia because of its involvement in Somalia and because of a territorial dispute between the two countries.
Add to this the mess between Ethiopia and predominantly muslim Eritrea and chances for a full scale regional war have never looked so bright in the horn of Africa.
