National Security Council Announces Somalia's Got Our Back
The National Security Council announced another addition to President Obama's Syria coalition a short time ago:
#Somalia has signed on to the September 6 Joint Statement on #Syria: http://t.co/dBJOZf6GLp

That brings the Sept. 6 joint statement on Syria up to 35 signatories, agreeing that Bashar al-Assad bears responsibility for the Aug. 21 attack and supporting "efforts undertaken by the United States and other countries to reinforce the prohibition on the use of chemical weapons."
Incidentally, the Obama administration is running a bit of a secret war in Somalia, aiding the government in Mogadishu as al-Qaeda-linked Al-Shabaab controls a sizable chunk of the country.
Al-Shabaab was recently kicked off Twitter (again) for tweeting murder, but recently rejoined under a slightly different handle.
History shall remember this day as the day America was subdued, with both its prestige & pride irreparably dented. It’s an Islamic revival
