UN fails to gather troops for Somalia stabilization


UNITED NATIONS, Dec 12 (Reuters) - The United Nations has been unable to put together a multinational military force to stabilize Somalia, which diplomats said means the lawless Horn of Africa country might be left to fend for itself.
In a report to the U.N. Security Council last month, Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon made clear that the kind of force that would be needed for Somalia was beyond the capabilities of blue helmet peacekeepers, who are typically deployed to monitor an existing peace agreement and not to crush an insurgency.
Ban said the initial stabilization force would need around two brigades -- roughly 10,000 troops -- and would have to be a "highly capable, self-sustaining, expeditionary force with full capability to defend itself against hostile threats." more..http://africa.reuters.com/country/ET/news/usnN12458233.html

Uganda says AU peacekeepers to quit Somalia if Ethiopian forces go

Nairobi/Kampala - Uganda on Friday confirmed that the African Union peacekeeping force in Somalia will pull out should Ethiopia stick to its promise of withdrawing its troops before the end of the year. "If the Ethiopians pull out ... the AU force will pull out because it will not have adequate numbers," James Mugume, permanent secretary at the Ugandan Foreign Ministry, told Deutsche Presse-Agentur dpa.
The Ethiopian government in late November said it would extract its several thousand soldiers unconditionally by the end of the year.
Ethiopian Prime Minister Meles Zenawi on Thursday broke the news that the AU force would also leave and promised to help the Ugandan and Burundian peacekeepers, numbering around 3,000, to pull out. more..http://www.earthtimes.org/articles/show/245904,uganda-says-au-peacekeepers-to-quit-somalia-if-ethiopian-forces-go.html

We Are Winning the War on Terrorism in Horn of Africa

The threat is from violent extremists who are a small minority of the world's 1.3 billion Muslims, the threat is real. They distort Islam. They kill man, woman and child; Christian and Hindu, Jew and Muslim. They seek to create a repressive caliphate. To defeat this enemy, we must understand who we are fighting against, and what we are fighting for.
