The former Somali PM returned to Mogadishu in a heavily armed convoy and was greeted by hundreds of supporters, says CBS News. Um, if there were only “hundreds” showing support wthen maybe the populace is totally on board? Or maybe they’re rejoining the various warlord factions, who are currently reestablishing their dominance.

Sounds like Baghdad all over again. An illusory victory to be be followed by guerrilla warfare and a descent into chaos, backed by the US (and other countries as well.)
