'Unlikely' last stand appears likely

The Islamists' last stand at Kismayo which I thought not likely to take place appears to be, well, taking place. As an added bonus, we just might get some guys involved in the bombings of the US embassies in Kenya and Tanzania:
Fighting erupted Sunday on the outskirts of a militant Islamic movement's last remaining stronghold, where Somalia's prime minister said three al-Qaida suspects wanted in the 1998 bombings of U.S. embassies were hiding.

[Somalia Prime Minister Ali Mohamed] Gedi said Islamic militants in Kismayo, Somalia's third-largest city, were sheltering alleged bombers Fazul Abdullah Mohammed, Saleh Ali Saleh Nabhan and Abu Taha al-Sudani. The bombings of the U.S. embassies in Kenya and Tanzania killed more than 250 people.

"If we capture them alive we will hand them over to the United States," Gedi said. "We know they are in Kismayo."
That's some crow I don't mind eatin'.
