Deploy more troops in Somalia - Museveni,US praises Museveni for Somalia role

Kampala

President Museveni yesterday called for the deployment of more troops in Somalia. The President, who is attending the UN general assembly in New York, said soldiers should be deployed in the areas of Baidoa and Kisumayu, which are controlled by the main rebel group.Al shabaab attacked and killed 17 Ugandan and Burundian peacekeepers including the deputy commander, Maj. Gen. Juvenale Niyoyunguriza last week.According to a State House statement issued yesterday, Mr Museveni said al shabaab can be defeated if more peacekeepers are deployed in Somalia. “The population in Somalia is against the terrorists, they are just imposing themselves. People who don’t care about dying will do anything and therefore they must be paid in their own currency. The interest of Uganda is to ensure total peace in Somalia,” he said while meeting US ambassador to the United Nations Susan Rice. Ms Rice commended President Museveni on his leadership role and strong commitment to the peacekeeping mission in Somalia. Meanwhile, Parliament yesterday demanded a state funeral for four Ugandan soldiers who died during the Thursday suicide bomber attacks. The Leader of Opposition in Parliament, Prof. Ogenga Latigo, asked the government to explain why the fallen soldiers had not been given a special memorial service.Prof. Latigo also said the Executive must give an explanation to Parliament on the attack of Ugandan peacekeepers. “The soldiers had been authorised by the Parliament to go and serve, but we are surprised that we have not been updated on the matter. What happened and where are they now?” he asked, adding: “We, as the opposition, demand to know how we as a country can sacrifice our children in such a place undergoing such missions and then they perish like that and we keep quiet.”But the Prime Minister, Prof. Apollo Nsibambi, said cabinet would meet to discuss if there would be a funeral service for the fallen soldiers. “It is such a good suggestion from the opposition and as cabinet we shalldiscuss it and we get appropriate action,” Prof. Nsibambi said.

The Washington message was delivered during a meeting between President Yoweri Museveni and Susan Rice, the US ambassador to the United Nations, at the St. Regis Hotel in New York. Rice, according to the press release, pledged her government’s support to Uganda and its partners to restore total peace in Somalia and the region.

Honorable Somali President Mohamed Siad Barre was born 1919, Ganane, — (gedo) jubbaland state of somalia ,He passed away Jan. 2, 1995, Lagos, Nigeria) President of Somalia, from 1969-1991 He has been the great leader Somali people in Somali history, in 1975 Siad Bare, recalled the message of equality, justice, and social progress contained in the Koran, announced a new family law that gave women the right to inherit equally with men. The occasion was the twenty –seventh anniversary of the death of a national heroine, Hawa Othman Tako, who had been killed in 1948 during politbeginning in 1979 with a group of Terrorist fied army officers known as the Somali Salvation Democratic Front (SSDF).Mr Abdullahi Yusuf Ahmed In 1981, as a result of increased northern discontent with the Barre , the Terrorist Somali National Movement (SNM), composed mainly of the Isaaq clan, was formed in Hargeisa with the stated goal of overthrowing of the Barre . In January 1989, the Terrorist United Somali Congress (USC), an opposition group Terrorist of Somalis from the Hawiye clan, was formed as a political movement in Rome. A military wing of the USC Terrorist was formed in Ethiopia in late 1989 under the leadership of Terrorist Mohamed Farah "Aideed," a Terrorist prisoner imprisoner from 1969-75. Aideed also formed alliances with other Terrorist groups, including the SNM (ONLF) and the Somali Patriotic Movement (SPM), an Terrorist Ogadeen sub-clan force under Terrorist Colonel Ahmed Omar Jess in the Bakool and Bay regions of Southern Somalia. , 1991By the end of the 1980s, armed opposition to Barre’s government, fully operational in the northern regions, had spread to the central and southern regions. Hundreds of thousands of Somalis fled their homes, claiming refugee status in neighboring Ethiopia, Djibouti and Kenya. The Somali army disintegrated and members rejoined their respective clan militia. Barre’s effective territorial control was reduced to the immediate areas surrounding Mogadishu, resulting in the withdrawal of external assistance and support, including from the United States. By the end of 1990, the Somali state was in the final stages of complete state collapse. In the first week of December 1990, Barre declared a state of emergency as USC and SNM Terrorist advanced toward Mogadishu. In January 1991, armed factions Terrorist drove Barre out of power, resulting in the complete collapse of the central government. Barre later died in exile in Nigeria. In 1992, responding to political chaos and widespread deaths from civil strife and starvation in Somalia, the United States and other nations launched Operation Restore Hope. Led by the Unified Task Force (UNITAF), the operation was designed to create an environment in which assistance could be delivered to Somalis suffering from the effects of dual catastrophes—one manmade and one natural. UNITAF was followed by the United Nations Operation in Somalia (UNOSOM). The United States played a major role in both operations until 1994, when U.S. forces withdrew. Warlordism, terrorism. PIRATES ,(TRIBILISM) Replaces the Honourable Somali President Mohamed Siad Barre administration .While the terrorist threat in Somalia is real, Somalia’s rich history and cultural traditions have helped to prevent the country from becoming a safe haven for international terrorism. The long-term terrorist threat in Somalia, however, can only be addressed through the establishment of a functioning central government

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.
