Anti-Idiotarian Rottweiler ยป Al-Qaeda in Somalia’s Last Stand

Well, the latest “last stand” anyway.

KISMAYU, Somalia - Islamist fighters abandoned the last major town they held early today and were seen heading south toward the Kenyan border while government forces approached slowly because of land mines, residents and a government spokesman said.

Wait… Wasn’t that supposed to be the place where the glorious Jumpin’ Jihadis “made a stand” against the eeeevil infidel Ethiopians? Dammit, but it’s getting hard to keep up with the Assholes for Allah the way they’re straightening out front lines every five minutes, and always as far away from the enemy as their sandaled toes will carry them.

The Islamist forces began to disintegrate after a night of artillery attacks at the front line and following a mutiny within its ranks, witnesses said. Government spokesman Abdirahman Dinari said he had information that Islamist forces were moving south toward the Kenyan border.

Those would be the same Islamofascist sand lice that, a mere couple of weeks ago, were triumphantly declaring a jihad against Ethiopia, inviting all splodeydopes of the world to come join them.

We don’t care who you are, that’s funny, right there.

The way their jihad is going, they’re going to be in magnificent shape at the end of it, having run non-stop all the way from the Ethiopian border to Kenya in a matter of days.

Yesterday in Kismayu, Somalia’s third-largest city, an estimated 3,000 Islamist fighters were preparing for a bloody showdown, but guerrilla Rabi Ahmed told the Associated Press that about 50 militiamen in the city were refusing to go to the front and fight.

Islamist leaders had vowed to make a stand against Ethiopia, which has one of the largest armies in Africa, or to begin an Iraq-style guerrilla war.

Looks like “making a stand” is right out, doesn’t it? Oh, and before you get too giddy about your “Iraq-style guerrilla war”, you might want to keep in mind that the government of Ethiopia isn’t pathologically afraid of a disapproving editorial in the New York Times and that they don’t seem to be burdened down by an army of worthless REMF JAG-offs hell-bent on helping the enemy in every way they possibly can with their Rules of Endangerment.

“We will continue fighting the Ethiopians from everywhere until they leave Somalia,” Islamist spokesman Abdirahim Ali Mudey told Reuters.

“Everywhere” except for, well, Somalia, of course.

The intervention of Ethiopia has reversed the fortunes of the government and the hard-line religious Islamists, which just two weeks ago controlled the capital and appeared on the verge of routing a weak interim government stranded in a provincial town.

In case you don’t speak Journalistese, “routing a weak interim government” in this case means “armed insurgency, aiming at taking by force what they couldn’t get at the ballot box.” In times past, it used to be something that free countries and their news agencies took a dim view of. Not so anymore.

Kenya has reinforced its northern border, and U.S. forces are said to be in the region, including the sea, to prevent the escape of foreign militants aligned with the Islamists.

We already have a hammer. Now meet Mr Anvil.

They brought order to Mogadishu for the first time since 1991, when warlords ousted a dictator.

“They made the trains run on time.”

But some of their hard-line practices such as closing cinemas and holding public executions angered some Somalis

And absolutely NO western journalists. After all, what’s a few public executions among friends as long as it’s in the service of totalitarianism?

and fueled U.S. and Ethiopian accusations that they were a dangerous Taliban-style movement.

How on Earth would they have gotten that idea?

We can’t wait for the next installment of “How the Darlings of the Left, the Murderous, Islamofascist Swine of Somalia were Exterminated by Ethiopia.”

It’s almost as much fun as watching the Loony Left wearing ashes and sackcloth over the execution of Saddam Hussein.

    Well it’s nice to see American forces being allowed to join the party. Should be interested when the first few boats full of ’splodeydopes get hauled over by a Pegasus, destroyer or other boatload of the Good Guys, all pleased as punch to be allowed to do something.

    Unless of course their ROE consists of watching from fourty miles away via the miracle of drones or some bollocks like that.

    Let’s hope our Dubyament lets them put that anvil on something other than sand.

    Look back a thousand years or so, and Ethiopia was a major power in the region, considered a welcome ally by empires like Rome. Seems to me like they might be on the rebound, hm?

    Mheh. Maybe Baghdad Bob needs to send the Somali Taliban a resume. The MSM doesn’t like this. It won’t dovetail with their belief that jihadis are invincible.

    The Islamist forces began to disintegrate after a night of artillery attacks…

    Literally, one hopes.

    …U.S. forces are said to be in the region…

    Are said to be? Looks like the AP “reporter” isn’t even in the same time zone as the fighting. If those “reporters” are squeamish about going into that icky Africa, our people may have a chance to get some work done without having someone like green helmet man stage some photos.

    But some of their hard-line practices such as closing cinemas and holding public executions angered some Somalis.

    You’d think that the AP would be upset with this development, after all, Somalia looked to be a great market for “Syriana”, “Who Killed the Electric Car” and “Rent”.

    Unless of course their ROE consists of watching from fourty miles away via the miracle of drones or some bollocks like that.

    Well, if we must, then find some ordinance that has video mounted in the nosecone, and recon with that.

    You gotta love this shit. How about we hire the Ethiopians to do this whole ME thing? Pull OUR boys and girls home to cover the border, and redirect the munitions funding for the ME to pay for the Ethiopians? Or, just flush the msm from the area, turn our people loose to clean the area, and then we can leave in a matter of weeks.

    ziske68 That was f’ng hilarious! Mys son literally fell out of the chair watching it. Thank you for making my year! Kudos to whoever made it.

    As to the “Islamist Army” in Somalia, Saracen just pulled Satan’s cock out of his mouth long enough to puke at the performance of his descendants.

    Way to go Ethiopians! :clap_tb:

    Al-Qaeda lost SOMALIA!?! Jesus, they must be finished. Their hub in ol’ Afghanistan was wasted despite the fact that they thought (and still seem to think) that it would be their great shield against the “evil” Americans. They’ve probably wasted countless dollars and men in Iraq, where the biggest threat now is no longer Al-Qaeda but some stupid religious nuts fighting each other. They can’t do shit on American soil without getting caught before they can say “Allah u oh no!” What have they got left. An occasional video postcard to prove their not dead and/or irrelevent? “Hey how you doing, we’re fine, hope everything’s okay. Oh and we’re winning the war against America, you know that right? Guys? Are you listening?” I think we can consider these guys toast now. Worthless, the North Koreans were tougher than these assholes were!

    When you allow soldiers to do what they were trained to do….no mercy, uncompromising in war, magnanimous in victory. The enemy shows a weakness, you zero in on it. That’s how you win wars. The Muslims said they have not encounted fighting such as this before. That’s due to the idea the Ethiopians kill them when and wherever they find them, no mercy, with all the tools at their disposal. And that’s when I sigh, for what we could have done with the men and munitions at our disposal…. Thanks to this gutless wonder in the White House that will not happen. When I think about the man I’m going to write a letter to after this..his name is Travis, in Iraq….he could be a sacrificial lamb to Bush and his waffling. And that infuriates me no end. For me and others ‘Nam is a memory, not history. As for Dubya, I voted for him, he turned around and boned me. And God forbid he try something with Iran with this mindset. For we would lose……thousands of lives, a fleet or two and God knows what else. Now where is Harry Truman when you need him?
