What’s happening in Somalia? Bush did not mention that country in his speech last night, and we know U.S. military is involved. If nothing else we were (and are?) heavily involved in training the Ethopian tropps that invaded, and there is little doubt that our involvement is more direct than that. Somalia was big in the media for a while. Did it fade from the news because the fighting died down, or just because the media got tired of it?

Dozens more along the same lines. A couple of them are from AP, but almost all are from news agencies abroad. Seems other countries still care about Somalia, but America not so much.
