Ethiopia Attacks

They used fighter jets to bomb towns in Somalia held by Islamists.

"After too much patience, the Ethiopian government has taken a self-defensive measure and has begun counterattacking the aggressive extremist forces of the (Islamic council) and foreign terrorist groups," said Ethiopia's foreign affairs spokesman, Solomon Abebe.
Yeah. Patience is a really bad way to deal with people who spread their religion by the sword.
The Ethiopian airstrikes were the first against Somalia's Islamic movement. Ethiopia and Somalia have fought two wars over their disputed border in the past 45 years. Islamic court leaders have repeatedly said they want to incorporate ethnic Somalis living in eastern Ethiopia, northeastern Kenya and Djibouti into a Greater Somalia.
Emphasis mine.

Here's a good nugget to come away with; When you give Ethiopians a deadline, they really deliver.
