    Oh No!

    The state Somalia is in I'd say the extent of their education is how to strip an AK and milk a starving goat, sophisticated international terror plots are a bit beyond them I'll wager. What are they going to do? Shoot down an airliner with their knackered old chinese RPG? And if they try to hit freighters going towards Suez they will incur wrath of rich, well armed pirate syndicates who don't want the attention of being associated with terrorism.
