Somalia and the death of Responsibility To Protect

From the SG's report on Somalia yesterday:

The Transitional Federal Government of Somalia continued efforts to consolidate its authority. ... On 23 July, the Government created a commission for security and pacification of the country. ... On the same day, it announced the appointment of Abdullahi Mohamed Alim as Minister of National Security, to replace the assassinated Omar Hashi Adan.

So, I'm supposed to be brimming with confidence for the TFG to govern and secure Somalia. And why? Because after their Minister of Security was assassinated, they named a new one. And they formed a commission to discuss security.

My cup runneth over.
