Kenya’s Threat From Somalia

From the Kumekucha blog:

So what is the worse we can expect from the Somalia crisis? The probability is high that we might see terror attacks on key installations in Kenya launched by remnants of the fallen Islamic courts outfit that ruled a significant chunk of Somalia until the Ethiopians rolled into town last week. Even more likely will be escalating violent crime involving weapons spilling over from the Somalia crisis. More so in view of the fact that one of their major fund-raising activities of piracy off the Indian Ocean coast has been curtailed by heavy American presence and patrols currently taking place there.

Though leavened with a small dose of anti-American conspiracy theory, this is a pretty good analysis from the Kenyan perspective of possible fall-out from the Ethiopian overthrow of the Islamic Courts Union of Somalia.
