Jets? What Jets?

Ethiopia has apparently discovered that its tanks and hundreds of its soldiers do take part in fighting in Somalia (see previous post). After the shock of initial surprise the decision was made that "since we are already there, lets continue" . . . and so Ethiopian fighter jets were dispatched to attack Mogadishu international airport in the middle of Somalia's capital.

Ethiopia publicly admitted that its forces are fighting in Somalia. The residents of Somalia's cost reported having seen hundreds of foreign militants entering the country.

"Our defense force has been forced to enter a war to defend against the attacks from extremists and anti-Ethiopian forces and to protect the sovereignty of the land," Ethiopian Prime Minister Meles Zenawi said in a television address Sunday night. "Our intention is to win this war as soon as possible."


Somehow having Muslims as half of your population seems to be an extremely bad starting position for waging a war against Islamic fundamentalists.
