Jason Ditz, managing news editor at, discusses the escalating tensions between the Somali police and army, stopping just short of violent conflict; the seven-year old “transitional” Somali government that remains as weak and unrepresentative as ever; Xe (formerly Blackwater USA) owner Erik Prince‘s involvement with a mercenary army tasked with fighting Somali pirates; indications the Tunisia protests are running out of steam; and Yemeni protests that seem to have effected (eventual) regime change.

  1. Obama&congressgangz declare too big to fail intefadh for all 666majorcorpz and no american dare to stop him…Muslims declare holy warr on this fasad and the whole youth world join Bu$harmy for killing jobz..shame!!!

  2. Huh?

  3. Don't know either…

  4. My Translation:

    Obama and congress unwavering support of corporate interests, especially the 'too big to fail' bailout, have essentialy become a revoltionary movement (Intifada) against American democracy – yet there is no large scale resistance to this attack.

    Muslim jihadists oppose this facade (fasad) of corporate dominitation maquerading as freedom (see the book 'Jihad V. McWorld' for an overview) but the revolutionary potential of much of the youth has channled by militarist propaganda and the recent economic collapse into joinng the US military-industrial complex and killing those jihadists.

    All of which is a shame in that bloggers opinon!

    [Note: UE Khalifah's analysis is simplistic but broadly accurate. It has more 'truth content' than 98% of corporate media pundits.]
