    This has been going on for some time, I really don't see what appeal this jihad in Somalia has for these young men, I just don't get it.The scary thing is they are being radicilized right here on our soil before they go over there.

    Yes. And that's the problem:

    And lest we not forget that Americans were killed by this group:

    Al-Qaida-linked group claims Uganda blasts - World news - Africa - msnbc.com

    Do you think they will try to return?

    I think we really need to start watching who we let into our country, even though we have taken in alot of Somalia refugees in our country and given them many opportunities here, it still seems like many of them feel disconnected to this culture and are drawn to radical Islam and want to fight with the Al Shabab, Somalis in general seem to be very easily influenced by terrorists and radical Islam, which is a worrying sign. I was watching a segment on television about this Al Shabab group, they actually have 2 white American Muslim converts who went to Somalia to fight with them, one of them was from Daphne Alabama, I think the future ground in the war on terror will involve these guys. Al Shabab are armed, financed, trained and mentored by other Radical Muslims in the Middle East to do their dirty work for them.

    There are so many questions here. Didn't it attract anyone's attention that ANOTHER group from the same area in MN was traveling there? Did they travel together? Buy one way tickets?

    The fact that they are affiliated with Al Qaeda should concern everyone. It's just a matter of time before they start asking for a reciprocal terrorism agreement here in the states.

    White House Announces $105 Million More in Aid to Horn of Africa, Total $565 Million
    Monday, August 08, 2011 – Just hours after President Barack Obama said on Monday that the United States does not need a credit rating agency to tell us we need a “balanced, long-term approach to deficit reduction,” the White House announced that an additional $105 million in humanitarian aid for the Horn of Africa had been approved by Obama.

    AP: Somalia famine aid stolen, UN investigating
    August 15, 2011 — Sacks of grain, peanut butter snacks and other food staples meant for starving Somalis are being stolen and sold in markets, an Associated Press investigation has found, raising concerns that thieving businessmen are undermining international famine relief efforts in this nearly lawless country.

    People should read Infidel, by Ayaan Hirsi Ali, who ends up making a lot of recommendations about integrating people from her country into western nations. I think she is very insightful.
