The Associated Press: Ethiopia: Somalia looks like a lost cause

UNITED NATIONS — Somalia is being hijacked by al-Qaida-linked terrorists who are better organized and more highly motivated than the ineffectual government in Mogadishu, and Sudan could be the next nation to fall under their influence, Ethiopia warned Saturday.”It is time that we abandon the fiction that this is a war just among Somalis. It is not,” Ethiopian Foreign Minister Ato Seyoum Mesfin said in a pessimistic speech before the General Assembly.”Somalia is being hijacked by foreign fighters who have no inhibition in proclaiming that their agenda has nothing to do with Somalia. Theirs is an ambition that goes well beyond Somalia, and they say it out loud and clear,” said Mesfin.”Today in Somalia, there is greater coordination and cooperation among those who assist the extremists than among those who profess support for the Transitional Federal Government of Somalia,” Mesfin said.
