The campaign has already begun.

"After securing Mogadishu, the offensive, supported by militias allied with the government, for now, at least, is likely to continue against al-Shebab in the countryside west and south toward the border with Kenya." [26]

After the capital, the entire country. After Somalia, the region.

The war has just begun.
