A war between the Somali Islamic clerics and warlords has just ended in Mogadishu after a fierce battle between the two factions in which 300 persons were killed and some 900 wounded. The clerics won the upper hand, much to the chagrin of the warlords and their supporters.

They were the warlords of this century
They killed, wounded and raped Somalia
In their hands thousands had perished
They were terrorists of the worst kind
They had clashed with Islamic clerics
In a disgraceful exit they were chased
Many a civilian died in cross shooting
Blood of innocent spilled with impuntiy
Some say America supported the warlords
Can a terrorist be used to capture a terrorist?
Or America has re-defined its "War on Terror"
Can the tree of democracy bear fruits of oppression?

America's support of these thieves and murderers is ludicruous considering these very crooks were responsible for not only bringing downn their own nation but also dragging US dead bodies on the streets. Strange times, AbdiNoor. Please check this article.

Thought provoking questions you ask; powerful, poignant piece you pen; hopefully now your nation can move forward and restore peace and hope to you and your people. You and your family are ever in my prayers, dear (((Abdi-noor))).

(((HUGS))) and love, Karla.

Dear Bro. Abdi-Noor you have hit upon a point that is not a moot one. Many Americans have to stop making All Islamists the boogeyman with their choice of an inquistion mentality. It is still the innocents who ultimately pay the price for the missteps of the mighty whether they be Islamists, Christians,Jews, Atheist, or Agnostic. I trust your visions and share your dream for Somalia and the world. Those who profit from wars are the ones to watch. Peace, love, blessings, and gratitude for sharing your courage and thoughts. All Prophet Poets must continue to speak. <mikii>
