This means all the killing was for nothing. The NeoCons instigated the overthrow of the Islamic Courts as soon as they declared Sharia law.

Now with the resulting piracy a repurcussion. Countless people were killed and injured – all for nothing – nothing at all

President Sharif Sheikh Ahmed
Somalia President Sharif Sheikh Ahmed has reportedly accepted a peace-proposal by religious clerics urging implementation of Sharia law.

“I met with religious leaders and elders and accepted their demand for ceasefire and reconciliation with the opposition members and I call on all opposition parties to halt the unnecessary violence,” AFP quoted the president as saying on Saturday.

“The mediators asked me to introduce Islamic sharia in the country and I agreed,” he added.

The announcement came as the country sinks further into a state of anarchy, with rebels steeping up attacks against the new unity-government, formed in January to provide Somalia with its first functioning government since 1991.

The proposal now awaits parliament ratification.
