Perhaps because most of us really know nothing about Somalia (how many of us could point to it on a world map?) the evolving/devolving/collapsing agony there is producing explanations that cut through a lot of fluff.
Ruben Andersson provides links to European and African media discussion of recent events in Somalia.
A Non-Arab Arab has made a bold attempt to explain how the current US-backed Ethiopian invasion of Somalia and our bombing of putative Al-Qaeda fugitives (who may have been just refugees) within Somalia looks in the Islamic world.
Looks like people of good will in the U.S. are going to have to learn some more unfamiliar geography.
