Bad Move

The headline alone gives it away:

"US gives Somalia about 40 tons of arms, ammunition"

"WASHINGTON, June 26 (Reuters) - The U.S. government has provided about 40 tonnes of weapons and ammunition to Somalia's embattled government in the past six weeks to help it fight Islamist insurgents, a senior U.S. official said on Friday.

The official, who spoke on condition of anonymity, said the United States spent less than $10 million on what he described as small arms and ammunition as well as on payments to other nations to train Somali government forces."

This seems so familiar...where have I seen...oh yeah, now I remember!

And we all remember how well that one turned out for us. Ah well ,anything to get Phil Hoffman in a movie.
