Mogadishu doesn't really have anything to do with this situation. Even so, the casualty rates were something like 100 to 1 back there.

The kind of firepower available in this operation is immense in comparison. The question is not if there is enough firepower but if the American soldiers are allowed to use it, as doing that will entail big civilian casualties. But what will a few more tens or hundreds of thousands of dead civilians mean as this war has already killed 1-1.5 million?

Peak oil is not an energy crisis. It is a liquid fuel crisis.
