Islamic forces retreat in Somalia

It's a rough time for Islam. They're just running away everywhere.

Somalian government and Ethiopian troops advanced toward the country’s capital Tuesday as Islamic fighters retreated, bloodied by a week of artillery and mortar attacks but promising a “new phase” in the war, a chilling pronouncement from a movement that has threatened suicide attacks.

One of these days some of these guys are going to wake up and realize that suicide bombing may seem glorified as long as you're not the one with the bomb strapped to your chest. Sure, it seems like it's so surreal, a martyr dying for what he believes in but in time, when they see it accomplishes absolutely nothing in the long run, maybe they'll realize the sensless and tragic loss of it all. Probably not though.
Ethiopian Prime Minister Meles Zenawi said he had been given unconfirmed reports that as many as 1,000 people had died and 3,000 were wounded.

So al-qaeda's idea of moving into the horn of Africa may have hit a wall, a wall called Ethiopians. Weren't those people starving a few years back? Anyway, this may be good news for the war on al-qaeda and Islamic fanatics but again, probably not.
