Interest in uranium fields behind events in Somalia - diplomat
And its not just uranium, oil interests also have vested interests in a American proxy state.
And the reason the Ethopians adopted the Pre-emptive Strike policy of the United States, was they are its client state in the region.
America squandered its influence in Somalia by supporting some particularly horrible warlords to challenge the Islamist radicals. But it still has considerable sway over Ethiopia.
And despite UN denunciations of the invasion, they too supported it, wink, wink, nudge, nudge, as they too had condemned the Isalmic Courts.
And before folks start cheering the glories of democracy defeating anarchy in Somalia, though of course it isn't anarchy it's really a developing market state, in reality the Somalia government is like Afghanistan's, it is a government of gangsters and warlords.
