The BBC reports that the US Army is bombing civilian targets in Somalia right now because there´s a suspicion that there are terrorists around. Even if there were terrorists US has to stop its policy of air bombardments of civilian towns in which terrorists may be present. Think about it. There are probably Islamic terrorists in Madrid where I live right now. Should we get bombed then? Are we all fair game for USA to catch terrorists? And even if a terrorist is identified, should he/she be killed from the air or instead brough to justice as we do over here in Spain? Why is placing bombs terrorism and throwing bombs from airplanes not terrorism?

Great comment Martin!
But unfortunately you should know the answer: «National Security».
That sucks…

I don’t know the situation in Somalia, but I know what is going on in gaza, where terrorist hide in houses, hospitals and children’s school to fire rockets at civilian cities in Israel.
They been bombarding Israel from the first day after Israel forced the Jews out of gaza so nobody could say that gaza is occupied by Israel anymore, every day since then rockets are falling down in Sderot and now also in Ashkelon thanks to new rockets bring by Iran and Hizbala.

What do you think about Churchill bombarding civilian in Dresden in WWII? Was that justified?

Bombarding civilian is a terrible thing to do, but a worse thing is to support the ones that aim to civilian with all the intention to kill as many children women and elderly people as they can. Wining at the same time the sympathy of the all world and increasing hate to Jews showing terrible pictures of civilians suffering.

Bombardeo aéreo en Somalia.

La BBC informa de que el Ejército de los EE.UU. bombardea objetivos civiles en Somalia, ya que existe la sospecha de que hay terroristas. Sin embargo no es también terrorista EE.UU. por no detener su política de bombardeos aéreos en ciudades donde hay civiles porque pueda haber terroristas. Piénsenlo. Es probable que existan los terroristas islámicos en Madrid, donde vivo ahora. ¿Nos bombardearan entonces? ¿Somos todos objetivos de los EE.UU. hasta que capturen a los terroristas?

Incluso si un terrorista ha sido identificado, ¿Será matado desde el aire o en su lugar deberia ser sometido a la justicia como lo hacemos aquí en España? ¿Por qué es terrorismo poner bombas y tirar bombas desde los aviones no es terrorismo?

I would love that everybody can reading your opinion.

Goood Bye, PuntoHuesca.

P.d. Other time I am with you.

Este es un comentario que un Somalí dejó en mi blog en inglés. Es muy bueno.

Posted by Abdi from somalia – March 3, 2008 5:36 pm – #

I know the sad situation in somalia.

Currently there have been 40, 000 somalis killed last year and over one million people displaced by the ethiopian invasion of somalia to oust the Islamic government that had gained power in somalia.

Since the brutal ethiopian invasion financed and organised by the US government there are now 2.5 million people on the verge of starvation.

Instead of helping the somali people have access to food and medical supplies the united states is bombing the hell out of the country and encouraging the ethiopian invaders to be more oppressive towards the somali people.

Just last year, power AC130 US gunships killed 200 nomadic somalis in the so called war on terror.

Whatever happened to justice and the rule of law in this world?
