Somalia 2--- USA 0
Crrrrrazy times huh?

It could be done, but the way people in the biz think, it never will be.
You want Somalia to stop this sort of thing, you're going to have to whack the dictatorships, put forward a non-crazy who's pro-Somalia and pro-self sufficiency. Then build up their infrastructure, educational facilities, medical facilities and start a nice productive society that can stand on its own, working behind the scenes with your benevolent patsy. Eventually, you get a world citizen that is its own independent self-sufficient country, take the training wheels off, and away you go, no more nutty revolt of the week or piracy.
But there are so many issues. One, the benevolent patsy usually won't stay that way, and becomes the next dictator of the week. Two, US corporations want a sex toy they can rape for its natural resources, not a nice Chile or Brazil that's not a US puppet. And the politicos don't want to invest money in a new stable gubmint they don't control behind the scenes. So it'll never happen in practice, but we could do it if we wanted.
I guess it's very easy to criticise the US for interfering in other nations etc.
They certainly haven't helped themselves with some of their interventions over the years - but what's the alternative, turn a blind eye and allow these extremists to continue their plotting and carrying out terrorist attacks like we witnessed in Kenya recently?
Somalia 2--- USA 0
The USA came out in the second half Hoping to level the score after a long range effort by Somali Legend Mohamed Aidid in the first half was enough to do the Damage, but a strong Somali performance boosted by a second half Wonder Strike by Boko Haram was enough to see the Game out.
The USA looked like a pale shadow of it's former self and was glad to hear the final whistle.
