Just Another "Business" Arrangement

As the Obama administration is busy gutting our defense budget and downsizing our military, others like Somalia's al Shabab are busy merging and expanding their "business" interests (see below).

Someone oughta tell Iran, Yemen, al Qaeda & co., Hezbollah, Afghanistan, Egypt, North Korea, Pakistan et al, to slow down their activities, as after the downsize the U.S. will be capable of fighting only one war at a time.

Actually, scratch that. President Obama has already made that announcement to the entire world.

Get ready to rumble, folks. |  February 13, 2012

Hundreds of Somalis are gathering at a militant-organized demonstration on the outskirts of Mogadishu in support of the merger of the Somali militant group al-Shabab with al-Qaida.

Al-Shabab spokesman Ali Mohamud Rage told those gathered at Monday's rally that al-Shabab is happy with its unification with al-Qaida, a merger announced last week by al-Qaida leader Ayman al-Zawahri.

Several hundred people gathered at the rally, including veiled women and armed, masked men.

Rage also said that an upcoming international conference in London on Somalia is being organized to "colonize" Somalia.

Somalia has not had a fully functioning government in more than 20 years, but African militaries from Uganda, Burundi, Ethiopia and Kenya are pressuring al-Shabab from three sides.
