Weighing in on Ethiopia/Somalia

Update 2: Somali Troops and their Ethiopian Allies have retaken the capital:

Triumphant Somali government forces and their Ethiopian allies marched into Mogadishu on Thursday after Islamist rivals abandoned the war-scarred city they held for six months. . ."We have been defeated. I have removed my uniform. Most of my comrades have also changed into civilian clothes," one former SICC fighter told Reuters. "Most of our leaders have fled."

Update: There is talk of taking Mogadishu
without a fight.

Dramatic events unfolding in the current Ethiopia/Islamic Courts Union conflict.
