Ethiopia's invasion of Somalia under cover of the Christmas holiday was a blatant aggression that is likely to widen the arc of conflict across the dangerously turbulent Horn of Africa. It also marks the opening of a new front in Washington's war against Islamic militants and reformers
"Under cover of the Christmas holiday?
Does Somalia (a predominantly Muslim country) have a Christmas holiday?
And though Ethiopia is predominantly Christian, it follows the old calendar, and will only be celebrating Christmas on 7 January.
I'm not saying it is impossible, but it is at least questionable -- does anyone know if either country has a Christmas holiday on 25 December?
