World: Is the radicalized Somalia ready to turn a major corner?

  • I’m not saying Somalia’s going to be a modern state, but it won’t be a radical Islamic state either.
  • An unnamed U.S. official • Speaking about the current status of Somalia, a country that has spent most of the last 20 years under a militant radical Islam leadership. But a corner seems to be turning, and many people (particularly the weakened Somali government) are starting to fight back against the Shabab militants. Could this be the beginning of the end of the anarchy that’s peppered the African nation? source
