HARRISONBURG—In his weekly column for the World Defense Review, Dr. J. Peter Pham, Director of the Nelson Institute for International and Public Affairs at James Madison University, continues the questioning of United States policy vis-à-vis Somalia—especially the support currently being given to the ineffectual “Transitional Federal Government” based in Baidoa and the lack of recognition of the Republic of Somaliland based in Hargeysa—which began in last week’s column.

Dr. Pham’s “Strategic Interests” column appears every Thursday in the World Defense Review, a twice-weekly publication covering military and defense news and information.
