So, tell me... has anyone in the US noticed that we've been bombing Somalia for the last two days?

I had a Joke theory that George was working through a list of percieved insults to America in reverse in the style of a schoolboy bully. So it would be Iran next then Vietnam, then Korea then Germany (twice) then mexico and finally ending up with the UK.

I can't believe I missed Somalia out, (and I suppose I'd better add Grenada and Cuba in at some stage)

Any idiot can face a crisis - it's day to day living that wears you out.

The entire push against the Somali Islamic group has been well covered on cable news.  The 1/2 hour national evening news -- I've no idea, haven't watched those in a decade.  Prob got 30 seconds.
