US ARMY SAYS AT LEAST 24 AL-SHABAB MEMBERS KILLED IN AIR STRIKE

The United States armed forces said it has killed 24 members of the al-Shabab armed group in an air strike carried out on Wednesday.

In a statement released on Thursday, the United States Africa Command said the strike took place on a camp near Shebeeley, Hiran region in central Somalia.

"Precision strikes are part of our strategy. Strikes continue to help our partners make progress in their fight against the transnational terrorists who oppose peace in Somalia and the region," Director of US Africa Command Major General Gregg Olson said in the statement.

According to the press release, "no civilians were injured or killed in this airstrike".

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Somalia is blessed with an embarrassment of riches, in terms of natural resources, yet to be exploited; this is why we see the violence continuing to occur, because this is a struggle for the future of this county, and who will have the power to bring Somalia fully into the 21st century.

One expects such a statement, about no civilian casualties, at the end of a US military press briefing.

I do not believe that last piece of tripe, for one second.

This follows the usual script of attempted pacification of the citizens of this country; the expropriation of various resources to which the US government has utterly no moral right; US-friendly countries only being allowed to develop a marketplace here, the regime being changed,as to be as US centric as possible; and whatever resources a country has, being only sold in US dollars.
