SYDNEY, Oct. 16 (UPI) -- One of Australia's longest and most expensive trials ended with five men convicted on terrorist charges facing life in prison, Australia's media are reporting.
All five, who were arrested in raids on their homes in 2005, pleaded guilty to the charges at the start of their trial in Sydney in November. The terrorist quintet, aged between 25 and 44, "were convicted of conspiracy to do acts in preparation for a terrorist act or acts," according to a report in The Australian newspaper. Their aim, Crown prosecution said, was to take revenge on Australia for its military presence in Iraq and Afghanistan.
The cost of the New South Wales Police investigation and the taxpayer-funded legal aid defense of the five was around $27.5 million. The jury sat through 10 months of evidence, testimony from 300 witnesses and examined more than 3,000 exhibits. The men had stockpiled 30,000 rounds of ammunition as well as bomb-making equipment and explosive chemicals. Police also found in the homes of the now-convicted terrorists extremist literature and so-called instructional DVDs for building homemade bombs as well as suicide bomb-belts, a report in the West Australian newspaper said. The notorious Melbourne cleric Sheikh Bakr was secretly recorded telling some of the men they had to prepare to "die or be jailed," the West Australian noted. "If we want to die for jihad we do maximum damage, maximum damage. Damage their buildings with everything, and damage their lives, just to show them," he said in one conversation played to the jury. Police were reportedly tipped off initially by hardware stores that noticed the men buying increasingly large amounts of chemicals and numbers of guns.The Australian newspaper report said that one of the men had links to the Pakistani militant group Lashkar-e-Toiba. The men were said to have attended a bush training paramilitary camp in isolated rural parts of the New South Wales state in preparation for violent jihad, police claimed.A prosecution counsel said they had compiled a "tsunami" of evidence, according to The Australian.But outside the courthouse relatives of the convicted were defiant.One convicted man's brother told media that the trial means Australia will face more Jihad attacks. "If you really go through the case and the words in the brief, you'll know it's bullshit," he said. "If they think this will stop terrorism, imprisoning these people, I don't think it will stop terrorism. I think it will increase the threat on Australia." The sister of another terrorist said her brother was not an extremist but a devote Muslim.
Sentencing of the five men begins in December. The trial result comes after a massive counter-terrorism operation by police in early August that netted four Australian nationals who were quickly arrested for allegedly planning a suicide attack on an army base. The men, some of Somali and Lebanese descent, allegedly have links to groups affiliated with the al-Shabaab terrorist organization in Somalia...more..http://www.upiasia.com/Top_News/Special/2009/10/16/Jury-out-for-23-days-terrorists-face-life/UPI-63231255716495/

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.
