Well that didn't take long . . .

Despite extensive foreign support, Somalia's "transitional" government is once again being forced into a corner by the Islamic Courts Union, according to Shabelle Radio.

"The United Nations envoy to Somalia has urged an end to the fighting, and Qatar, the current President of the UN Security Council, has proposed a draft statement calling for an immediate cease-fire and the withdrawal of all international forces. Other nations, such as the US, Britain, France, and Russia, have objected to the statement, saying peace talks and agreement are necessary before troops can withdraw."

And what disrupted the last round of peace talks? Foreign troops.
