Violence Begets Violence in Somalia

The Atlantic published on 16 October 2017 a commentary titled "Violence Begets Violence in Somalia" by Helen C. Epstein, visiting professor at Bard College.

The account is highly critical of US policy in Somalia, concluding that "Washington has to realize that there is no military solution to this conflict." She adds that diplomacy is called for. While that may be true, al-Shabaab has never demonstrated any willingness to compromise or even engage in meaningful talks.
