Man I was really hoping for a story about some zoo going mom "accidentally" dropping her newborn clad in a lettuce costume into the hippo pool.

Step 1: Melt away in the face of a superior military force.

Step 2: Build IEDs

Step 3: Ambush

So, you're an expert on Somalia now, are you?

That fourth-generation-war stuff might work well in a city where the entire population is opposed to the occupier, but the plan in Mog is to hand the reins off to the Abgal elders. Which means sitting back and watching half of the (young, incompetent) former SCIC forces, now controlled by their clan elders, shoot it out with the other half.

This is your classic British-colonial style counterinsurgency, which, often as not, worked. The only innovation missing is a concentration camp, and I certainly wouldn't rule that one out just yet.
