Al shabab cowards used children as human shield to save their leader. That is why the navy seals withrew. One good thing to come out of this though, is Al shabab is as good as dead cos its leadship will never be accepted by the international community if they ever took power in somalia....... The US sent in the navy seals to show off. They could have waited when al shabab were gathered and drop cluster bombs on their heads. Simple as that. Take out the leadership and foot soldiers with one blow.

What's the difference between Somalia and the United States....neither have a functioning government right now.

When ever things are looking a bit shaky for the leader of the free world, there's always a Muslim to kill to cheer people up. Carrying out raids makes people feel good. Let's not talk about the economy, the government shutdown, unemployment, the IRS scandal, the PRISM leaks, let's kill a somali instead. USA USA USA

But is it me or have the US let their standards drop. I remember these navy seals raiding nuclear armed countries like Pakistan. Celebrating a raid on Somalia is like Arsenal beating Barnet in a football match, and then organising an open top bus tour through north London to celebrate.

I do not understand your language, but just in case, let me tell you something: We the people of America will send every Somali terrorists back to the stone age with our modern weaponry.(Sorry, forgot that you are already in the stone age). Once we finish with you, will be nothing left of Somalia (just a hole on the map in the East Coast of Africa). It is not a difficult task, since you are so closed already to the stone age that our efforts should be minuscule. We have nothing to bomb in your already devastated country of Somalia. If you read history, we won WWII and WWI and bombed Hitler to death and decimated Japan and Germany with air bombardment. The bombardment can take days or weeks but we will finally get you. Remember, the answer is our 2 tons bombs! That will send you a message! By the way, if you are a Somali-Swiss living in Europe, seeking European destruction with your chaotic civilization, Europe will also get you. We, the western civilization will ged rid of you one by one or all of you in one shot!

If the US wanted, they could have every terrorist leader killed, but that is not what they want to do because the US economy depends on war.

The American media as usual is lying to the American public that the Seals retreated because their were so many children and women in the building. Kkkkkkkkk.
The next day all the whites in Mogadishu ran away to Nairobi!. The bottomline is: never mess up with Somalis.

Somalia welcomes U.S. raid, says America doesn’t need permission

Somalia welcomes the U.S. raid on an al-Shabaab leader this weekend, deputy prime minister and foreign minister Fawzia Yusuf Adam told CNN’s Christiane Amanpour in an exclusive interview on Monday, adding that the U.S. does not have to ask permission for future action.

“We are welcoming more if this will help us get rid of al-Qaeda, al-Shabaab,” she said from London.“We have a cooperation, and they don’t have to ask us, because we are fighting a common enemy.”

“We are grateful to their support,” Adam told Amanpour.“Otherwise the whole region will be in turmoil.”

from nytimes:
"The Shabab leader was believed to have been killed in the firefight, but the SEALS were forced to withdraw before that could be confirmed, a senior American official said. Such operations by American forces are rare because they carry a high risk, and indicate that the target was considered a high priority. Baraawe, a small port town south of Mogadishu, the Somali capital, is known as a gathering place for the Shabab’s foreign fighters."
Through this entire Times story, there is only reference that these militants are Islamic and the word "Muslim" doesn't even appear.

Somalia needs to be attacked, like Iraq was. This will happen, air strikes are comming. Also, we need to stop having them in our countries, all they do is take welfare and smell like poop.

I am glad the world knows about the Islamic agenda thanks to the brainless Soms in Kenya. Yay!!! They were you stupid of Taqiya. Now everyone knows about Islam and what it intends to do by out breeding others. Information is power. Good always defeats evil.

Muslim and Islamic is the same and you know that well! They are radical Islamists! So do not insult our intelligence here! I do not understand why they are not using drones? It is more accurate and safe for our forces! Drone- bomb the hell out of Somalia militants! They were supposed to do that with the pirates long ago, that were in first place the way those militants financed terrorism!
