On Travel -- and a Word on Somalia

Sorry to have missed yesterday's posting. I am traveling and am therefore at the mercy of TSA and the airlines. Regular inputs will resume next Friday.

One comment from this week's news other than the very chilly reaction from the White House on the Baker-Hamilton report. The UN approved a new peace enforcement mission for Somalia to be run under the auspices of East African countries. This may create more troubles as this mission may end up draining troop resources from the undermanned African Union contingent in Darfur. But that may be part of the game, as Sudan, which is one of the East African countries involved in Somalia, would like to shift the world's attention from Darfur to any place else.
