Does Latest Drone Strike on al Shabaab Signal Change in US Tactics in Somalia?

A US drone strike which killed a senior al Shabaab leader in Somalia last Saturday appears to have been part of a change of tactics by the Americans since it started targeting the militant group in 2007.

It was the fifth consecutive such strike against al Shabaab’s leadership, with drones now appearing to have superseded other, manned aircraft and cruise-missiles in the seven years since attacks began in Somalia.

Remember, the US/NATO/Israel Axis policy has been, for many years, If there is a body, it is a terrorist, unless someone can prove beyond the shadow of a doubt that he/she was not. In that case, the victim's family is given a few thousand dollars and told to shut up.
* The Axis does not win many friends, but it certainly influences people!
