Compare and Contrast


Somali troops enter capital unopposed

Somalis cheer as military rolls in, ending six months of Islamist domination

From the Guardian:
Return of warlords as Somali capital is captured
· Islamists retreat in face of Ethiopian tanks
· Looting begins as control of city is reclaimed

Same story, different spin.

MSNBC has never been considered much of a conservative news agency, but they look positively right wing when compared to the Guardian.

I'm glad that the Islamic crazies had been routed from the capital, but this is a region of the world where "stability" isn't even found in the dictionary. Here's hoping the UN doesn't decide to get involved.

At least then the people there might have a fighting chance at freedom.
