    Pardon if this is a DB, but I didn't see anything on this yet.

    Isn't Somalia to the southeast? Does it have college football?

    OK, now that's funny.

    Please, give it up. Keep it up in the college football threads, by all means, but please keep it there.

    Is this a one-off raid, or is it going to be a sustained assault?

    Are you referring to U.S. forces in Somalia, or DyePack's participation in this thread?

    The forces, though I see your point.

    An American general, McKiernan, I think, was asked at the end of 2006 to give a synopsis of that year and for the one coming up.
    What are the U.S. military's biggest initiatives, etc.
    He said solidifying our mission in Africa and our relationships with leaders of nations in that continent was at the top of the list for things to get done in 2007.
    Africa is a breeding ground for terrorists, who like to set up shop and do their training.
    We've been in Djibouti since 2004, and that's where this latest mission was launched from.
    Africa's vital and we're there for the long haul, it seems.

    Shouldn't Moddy or Idaho be moving to this to the "anything goes" board? It hardly seems like sports.

    Though it certainly meets the "news" aspect of "Sports and News."
