U.S. Africa Command (AFRICOM) conducted a second airstrike in Somalia this week, killing at least five terrorists of Al-Shabaab, a Somalia-based terror group affiliated with Al Qaeda, just one day after killing four other terrorists. The airstrike, which did not kill or injure any civilians or others, took place in Janaale, Somalia on yesterday.
“Our strikes are a key effort to combatting terror and helping to bring stability to Somalia,” said U.S. Army Brig. Gen. Miguel Castellanos, U.S. Africa Command deputy director of operations, in a statement to American Military News. “Not only do they degrade al-Shabaab’s ability to conduct violent activities in the region, but they illuminate the fighter network and impede the al-Qaida affiliated terrorist organization’s ability to recruit and export terrorism.”
Can't argue with Mike 'Einstein' Tyson.
Artillery by other means.
Are those attacks Ilhan's clan?
WSF – likely with MUCH longer range and more precision, except for 'maybe' MLRS 😉
ED – I had the same exact thought, maybe we can send her back for the funeral(s).
They're right lucky the wrath and fury isn't unleashed. I say that as a dismounted Colonel of Horse.
It would be futile if you did.
Overhead artillery – but the USAF doesn't like to have it characterized that way.
Ed – likely
Anonymous – I'd pay her way, so long as she doesn't make it back before the travel ban is put into place.
If Ilhan Omar were to visit home, somebody could mistake her for a terrorist…
The Cannon Cockers keep working on it, bless them.
Artillery is king of the battlefield.
Gadgets and tech are nice but Alexander the Great used a different approach when he conquered Afghanistan. I understand his way of doing things was more efficient than today's 18 years effort. I am not sure how long the peace lasted after he had finished the work but it is written that he finished quickly.
