Has the US started a new war across the Horn of Africa?

Fighting is raging across Somalia as the people of that country are increasingly resisting the invasion and occupation of their country by US directed foreign mercenary troops from Uganda and Ethiopia. Over 50,000 refugeees have fled Mogadishu already, and the war there threatens to spark clashes between Ethiopia and Eritrea, too, eventually. All this because English only assholes sitting in their Washington DC giovernment offices nonchalantly decided like chess players, to move their pawns into action on the African board. The resulting conflicts potentially could destabilize the Congo once again, not to mention to destabilize Sudan further.

Funny how all the Darfur fethishists seem so silent now about what the US is now doing to Somalia. Check out aljazeera.net’s reporting on these 2 locales- Somalia and Sudan for a breath of fresh air in reporting.

The best thing for the entire continent of Africa would be for all the US and European military interventions into Africa’s affairs to immediately end. The UN has nothing to contribute positively to bringing peace to Africa neither, since the UN Security Council is itself firmly in the hands of the Bush Adminstration and its Democratic Party allies, that together make up the US government.

    Tony, when is this madness going to end? What kind of world will it lead to?
    The following song lyrics seem to sum up the situation pretty well:

    Please tell me the reason
    Behind the colors that you fly
    Love just one nation
    And the whole world we divide
    You say you’re “sorry”
    Say, “there is no other choice”
    But god bless the people them
    Who cannot raise their voice

    We can chase down all our enemies
    Bring them to their knees
    We can bomb the world to pieces
    But we can’t bomb it into peace
    Whoa we may even find a solution
    To hunger and disease
    We can bomb the world to pieces
    But we can’t bomb it into peace

    Violence brings one thing
    More more of the same
    Military madness
    The smell of flesh and burning pain
    So i sing out to the masses
    Stand up if you’re still sane!
    To all of us gone crazy
    I sing this one refrain

    And i sing power to the peaceful
    Love to the people y’all
    Power to the peaceful
    Love to the people y’all

    I don’t understand the whole reason why
    You tellin’ us all that we need to unify
    Rally round the flag
    And beat the drums of war
    Sing the same old songs
    Ya know we heard ’em all before
    You tellin’ me it’s unpatriotic
    But i call it what i see it
    When i see it’s idiotic
    The tears of one mother
    Are the same as any other
    Drop food on the kids
    While you’re murderin’ their fathers
    But don’t bother to show it on cnn
    Brothers and sisters don’t believe them
    It’s not a war against evil
    It’s really just revenge
    Engaged on the poorest by the same rich men
    Fight terrorists wherever they be found
    But why you not bombing tim mcveigh’s hometown
    You can say what you want propaganda television
    But all bombing is terrorism

    We can chase down all our enemies
    Bring them to their knees
    We can bomb the world to pieces
    But we can’t bomb it into peace
    Whoa we may even find a solution
    To hunger and disease
    We can bomb the world to pieces
    But we can’t bomb it into peace

    911
    Fire in the skies
    Many people died
    And no one even really knows why
    They tellin’ lies of division and fear
    We yelled and cried
    No one listened for years
    But like, “who put us here?”
    And who’s responsible?
    Well, there’s no debatin’
    Cause if they ask me i say
    It’s big corporations
    World trade organization
    Tri-lateral action
    International sanctions, satan
    Seems like it’ll be an endless price tag
    Of wars tremendous
    And most disturbingly
    The death toll is so horrendous
    So i send this to those
    Who say they defend us
    Send us into harm’s way
    We should all make a rememberence that
    This is bigger than terrorism
    Blood is blood is blood and um
    Love is true vision
    Who will listen?
    How many songs it takes for you to see
    You can bomb the world to pieces
    You can’t bomb it into peace

    Power to the peaceful
    And i say, love to the people y’all
    Power to the peaceful
    And i say, love to the people y’all

    Lyrics from “Bomb The World” by Michael Franti
