Ethiopia invades Somalia

The Danish paper Politiken reports that Ethiopian troops have moved into Somalia, in a bid to counter the Union of Islamic Courts.

A few months ago BBC reported the same.

This might be another example of religion becoming a strategic consideration. No doubt the Ethiopians will be able to get some good financial support from someone across the Atlantic, whereas the UIC will get its share from the other side of the Red Sea. A good ol' war of proxies?
