Somali freedom defeated

The defeat we had been waiting for has arrived. The anarchy in Somalia is over. Thanks to the US government's reckless foreign policy (attacking Somalia without success, applying pressure for a new state, and recently giving financial backing to some faction leaders to fight others, provoking the Islamic faction), good has once again lost in the world. All the economic and technological progress that the Somalis have done in the past 16 years without a state will mean nothing in the end.

The great anarchist experiment in uplifting the third-world from poverty will be nothing more than yet another footnote on the path of the American Empire steamroller.
