Somalia is a haven for Islamist terrorists, including al Qaida. Why are you blowing this off? Those Islamist nutjobs who also happen to be pirates are also waging war against the pittance of a pseudo-government the country has. Since we aren't attacking other countries with Islamic governments, and even helped to found a few of them with such (Iraq and Libya), obviously your understanding of the situation is badly flawed.
Apparently Eritrea should get off the hook for supporting these Islamist nutjobs as well.
Uhm drone bombings on weddings and funerals were ACCIDENTS, so why paint it as a matter of policy? This is the kind of thing I expect from the radical left and not liberals or other more mainline Americans.
Libya can be argued, but what's done is done. There is an Islamic government there which we helped to establish. Ghadafi was in bed with terrorists for decades.
