US launches missile strike in Somalia..

Another sovereign nation Brutus? WTF is up with that? Well..according to the Pentagon, they are going after one of those damn terrorists that belongs to Al-Qaeda..so of course that makes it ok! From the MSNBC writeup:

MOGADISHU, Somalia – Pentagon officials said Monday the United States launched an air strike in Somalia to go after a terrorist suspect.

In the strike early Monday, Somali police said three missiles hit a Somali town held by Islamic extremists, destroying a home and seriously injuring eight people.

A Pentagon official said the U.S. military was going after an al-Qaida suspect in the town. As yet, there is no word on whether the suspect was hit. The official spoke on condition of anonymity because the official was not authorized to speak publicly about the strike.

Jesus Christ on a cracker..how exactly does our federal government validate blowing up people and property in the name of hunting one Al-Qaeda official? Sounds like a whole lot of bullshit and bravado to me.
