HOW ELSE COULD IT HAVE TRURNED OUT?:

In Somalia, violence is status quo, dashing hopes (Jeffrey Gettleman, February 21, 2007, International Herald Tribune)

"To tell you the truth, I'm pretty worried," said Ali Mahdi Muhammad, an influential clan elder and once a contender for president of Somalia. When the government came to Mogadishu, he said, "I felt we were going the right way. Unfortunately, that's not the case anymore and soon it's going to be too late."

It is hard to believe, but Somalia is actually becoming a more violent and chaotic place. This is not how it was supposed to be.


The Islamists will be welcomed back with open arms, not least by us.

"This is not how it was supposed to be."
