This the kind of stuff that I prefer to ignore. In fact, I have not read one news article about this until today. LOL! None of this surprises me. I expected it. The only surprise is that it took so long to see it happen.

Now everybody is crying crocodile tears.

Al-Shabab has administrative control of that part of the country. Simple. End of discussion. What can anybody do about it? Not much. My advice is and has long been to make peace with al-Shabab and end this war.

But fools want to imagine that they can somehow magically end al-Shaba's support networks. Keep on dreaming. What happened in West Gate Mall is just one example of dreams becoming nightmares.

This is just more stupid wishful thinking propaganda. They cannot stop al-Shabab's finances. If they could, they would have done it years ago. The Somali people support al-Shaba by giving them all the money they need. Some of the fighters get paid as much $300/month. If I had known that early, I might have applied for a job myself. The economy has not been doing well here. I could use $300/month especially in a country like Somalia where the cost of living is very low. But if I go to Syria to work for the CIA, they will pay me only half that much, $150/month. And Idiotbama is too stupid to figure out why the terrorists are winning and he is loosing. That is what happens when your brain gets clouded by liberalism and communism like Idiotbama's brain.
