don't think the ICU will win ,Ethiopia is way stronger,being better equipped.But the TG will be a puppet of Ethiopia with no support from the Somali citizens,true.and Ethiopia I guess will have a naval port finally.

Ethiopia cannot afford to maintain a military presence in Somalia for a long time, while the ICU has the ability to fight nearly indefinitely. The ICU will eventually force an Ethiopian change of plans.

The TFG has no legitimacy with the Somalians anyway, most of the TFG comes from the warlords the ICU kicked out of power.

And was hamstrung by a government unwilling to properly use ANY of that to wage a successful war. Even a Formula 1 race car can lose a race to a Honda if the driver is blind...Its been the sory of the American military for 50 years. halfwits with the worlds sharpest sword more concerned about chipping its edge in a fight rather than driving it through their enemies heart. Same shiat in Iraq, Same shiat in Iran soon...
