United States invades Somalia
(Examiner) It is official now. According to the Associated Press, witnesses have spotted U.S. troops invading the town of Barawe, Somalia, near Mogadishu. Spelled out, the war on terror has found a new home front.
No longer will the United States simply occupy over 100 countries, including South Korea and Germany. The war on terror has moved troops from the United Nations and the United States to wars on the fronts of Afghanastan, Iraq, and now seemingly, to the small militant controlled nation of Somalia. All the while, the United States is keeping its eyes on North Korea, Russia, and China.
Despite promises from the Democratic party, who gained majority control of the House and Senate during the elections in 2006, to end the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, the war has since taken a turn toward expansion.
Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton, has now pledged U.S. military support to help keep the government in charge of the nation, which has been ruled mostly by anarchy since 1991.
