Mogadishu by MilitaryPhotos Mogadishu by MilitaryPhotos
Ugandan troops serving with the African Union Mission in Somalia (AMISOM) line up in the middle of the night ahead of a ground advance as part of a joint Somali National Army (SNA) and AMISOM operation in an area south-west of the Somali capital Mogadishu, in this handout photograph taken November 26, 2012 and released by the African Union-United Nations Information Support Team November 28, 2012. Troops from both the Ugandan and Burundian contingents of AMISOM and SNA units advanced on foot to the dense area of bush south of Elasha Biya, some 15km (9 miles) west of Mogadishu, which was hitherto occupied by the Al-Qaeda-affiliated terrorist group Al Shabaab and being used to launch attacks along the Afgooye corridor, the main thoroughfare west of the Somali capital, according to the AU-UN IST.

I do wonder, though, if the men on this picture fight because they believe in an African peace some day, or if it's just a job they do to put bread on the table? And how well are they trained, tactics and operations wise, compared to western professionals.

At any rate, my hopes are with the guys, taking on Al Shebaab on home turf is brutal business.

And also, this is a truly extraordinary picture. Fantastic, in fact.
