BUT SURELY THERE IS NO MILITARY SOLUTION?
The Financial Times reports :
Meles Zenawi, Ethiopia’s prime minister, on Tuesday said between 3,000 and 4,000 Ethiopian troops had “broken the back” of the Islamist forces and that up to 1,000 Islamic fighters had been killed. “We have already completed half our mission, and as soon as we finish the second half, our troops will leave,” he said.
Me: How many “fighters” have we killed in Iraq? You think it was a wise decision on the part of the Pentagon not to provide such estimates while everyday we learn how many Americans have been killed?
