ABSTRACT
The article reports on the need for the U.S. to develop and improved means for managing African security issues as the war in Somalia escalates as of November 2006. For many years, U.S. strategists have argued that the continent's vulnerability to transnational security problems warrants the creation of an African Command. Such a step would represent a major improvement in how the U.S. integrates Africa into its global war against terrorism.
