Dr. Francis Njubi Nesbitt, Associate Professor of Africana Studies at San Diego State University, discusses his article “History Repeats Itself With Somalia Invasion;” the many failed interventions and proxy wars involving the US, Ethiopia and Kenya; how al-Shabab rose to prominence after the US-backed Ethiopian invasion of Somalia in 2006; Kenya’s current plan to seize the Somali port city of Kismayo and cut off a significant source of income for al-Shabab; why clan-based cultures are not conducive to central governance; how oil pipeline routes figure into African conflicts; and Somalia’s severe famine that has hundreds of thousands at risk of starvation.
