Somalia has decided that utilizing political correctness in dealing with murderers and terrorists doesn't work.
The UN-backed Somali government is closing in on a fortified town occupied by remnants of the Islamic militia that formerly controlled much of the country, a government official said Friday.
Government troops, supported by soldiers from neighbouring Ethiopia, are preparing to attack Ras Kamboni on the southern tip of Somalia, where fighters for the Council of Islamic Courts have dug in, Defence Minister Col. Barre (Hirale) Aden Shire said.
"Today we will launch a massive assault on the Islamic courts
militias," he said. "They have dug huge trenches around Ras Kamboni but have only two options: to drown in the sea or to fight and die."
Meanwhile, the U.S. navy is patrolling the Indian Ocean near the town to prevent the militia from escaping, the Associated Press reported.
Government and Ethiopian forces have been fighting the militia since Ethiopia declared war on the Islamic militants on Dec. 24. The militia has been driven from the capital, Mogadishu, and much of the area they occupied in southern Somalia.
The militants want to rule Somalia according to Islamic law.
