Interesting to note, the air strike against suspected terrorists targets in Somalia using the AC-130 gunship (CNN http://www.cnn.com/2007/WORLD/africa/01/08/somalia.strike/index.html) appears to be a message with two parts. First the sign that The American President continues to hunt down and attack terror suspects no matter where they are, even in the face of the symbolic defeat of his War strategy in the November elections. Second, as some will note, Many of this Countries adversaries overseas are just waiting for the American withdrawal from Iraq that was talked about constantly in the News prior to the November Elections. This strike announced on the same Day that Nancy Pelosi and some in the Democratic Party acknowledge that they have very little control over how the president handles Iraq, as “Commander in Chief”. This sends a clear message to our enemies that Bush is still running the show.
