The US says it is sending dozens of troops to Somalia to train forces fighting Islamist group al-Shabab.

This is the first time regular US troops have been deployed in Somalia since 1994, although some counter-terrorism advisers are already there.

President Donald Trump last month approved a directive allowing tougher action against al-Shabab.

In 1993, 18 US special forces personnel were killed in the incident dramatised in the Hollywood film Black Hawk Down.

Good grief. Why?

Don't you know, we are the world policeman!  Somalia is an excellent example of where we could literally use the balance of the MOAB bombs on all areas held by al shabab  Somalia...we have no business being there!  There is no interest of the USA in that pirate infested country.  NONE!

Trump is off in the weeds.  Americans are once again going to die for nothing.  This nonsense has to end.
