Ethiopia never invaded Somalia. We intervened in Somalia upon the request of the transitional Parliament and the government of [former Somali transitional president] Abdullahi Yusuf and on the basis of guaranteeing our own security. The Union of Islamic Courts was composed of not only moderate Islamists but extremists. Extremist groups from outside the region had been trying their level best to use Somalia as a springboard to launch terrorist activities in the region. Ethiopia has neutralized this force. Today there is only Al-Shabab and a few groups working as small units without any formidable organization. Their military backbone has been completely shattered.
