Didn't Somalia get attention from the US because of famine?
It's not like a bunch of US politicians just decided one day to mess with Somalia's government structure. It was rooted in humanitarian efforts.
Ultimately it may have been a disaster, but let's be honest about what drove these actions.
Courage is not the absence of fear but rather the judgment that something is more important than fear.
The brave may not live forever but the cautious do not live at all.
