When SNM terrorist occupiers call their victims names

The self-styled foreign minister of the one-clan secessionist enclave calling itself Somaliland, otherwise the NW region of Somalia, is a charlatan who distinguished himself  only for his ludicrous utterances. Among his baseless but laughable mantra is his claim that Somaliland was recognised on independence by the United Nations and numerous countries when no country did anything of the sort and the UN itself has no power to recognise any country; A second assertion of his, which is raving bonkers, is that the area's former colonial borders are still valid and recognised by the African Union when that is only a figment of his own imagination. The AU cannot recognise borders that ceased to exist when the territory concerned united with Italian Somaliland on the first July 1960. It only recognises those of Somalia.
A third claim is that Ethiopia's trade office in Hargeisa is an embassy and its head an ambassador- implying that Ethiopia had recognised the enclave! But Mr Duale's most preposterous and bizarre claim is  that the regions of Sool, Sanaag and Cayn (SSC) in NW Somalia are the heritage of their clan, bequeathed to them by their former British colonial master whom they look up to as their blessed benefactor. Any time the TFG and the UN SRSG get involved in the SSC as it is their business, Mr Duale would scream foul, berating them for illegally trespassing on their internal affairs as if they were a separate country from Somalia and as if the people and regions of SSC were their clan's private property!!
Once again, Mr Duale has been dishing out his familiar antics in his recent interview with the BBC Somali Service in which he maliciously stamped the stigma of terrorism on Mr. Suleiman Cisse Ahmed, the leader of the recently established SSC Hogaan, which stands for the unity of Somalia and the liberation of the SSC regions. Mr. Cisse's crime in the eyes of Mr Duale (and his secessionist circles) is to state in an earlier BBC interview certain undeniable facts which are an anathema to the secessionists: firstly, that the SSC regions do not belong to Somaliland but belong to their people who are part and parcel of Somalia just as Somaliland itself is; and secondly, that the international community recognises Somalia's unity and its territorial integrity in which the SSC regions are an inseparable parts as Somaliland itself is.
What particularly stung Mr. Duale this time is Mr. Suleiman Cisse's incontestable assertion that they had been invaded and occupied by clan militia from the rebel entity based in Hargeisa and that they will exercise their inalienable right to liberate themselves from these outlaws. In their desperation to defend their indefensible occupation of the SSC regions, Mr. Duale and his secessionist renegades are now tarring the victims of their occupation with the terrorist label when in reality they are the real terrorists. Only those who live in a fantasy world like Duale's secessionists could imagine that the international community will fall for these ridiculous accusations.
The heinous crimes against humanity committed in the SSC regions by the secessionist occupiers speaks for itself. Over 100,000 of Lascanod's residents have been ethnic-cleansed and forced to flee the city most of them ending as refugees in camps in NE Kenya. The daily terror that the occupiers mete out to the occupied include rape, looting, killings, detentions without trials, frequent curfews as collective punishment, denial of the right to education, food and free movement. The recent massacre of innocent people in Widhwidh and Balle Hadhac , including women, children and the elderly, is their latest crime and the  cynical crocodile tears Mr. Duale shed in his interview with the BBC only adds insult to injuries.
Just as the colonialists used to wrongly blame their subjects'  quest  for freedom as being waged by handful agitators, so Mr. Duale is blaming some SSC foreign passport holders for instigating and fanning the problems  they face in the SSC regions.  What Mr.Duale disingenuously does not acknowledge is that most of the members or leaders of Somaliland's political establishment are foreign passport holders; so also is their Diaspora abroad  who are propping up the secession financially and politically. So, if it is right for their foreign passport holders to back up their enclave and its occupation of our regions,  why is it wrong for the SSC Diaspora to come to the aid of their occupied and suffering people? The answer is that there is one rule for themselves and a different one for others.

The election Somaliland hopes to hold on 26 June is their last desperate act to hoodwink the international community that these elections can take place anywhere in the NW Region and that this is a testimony both to the support the secession has among all regions and clans and their collective desire for recognition. But the reality is otherwise, and the bitter bill they would have to swallow is that the three SSC regions and their people will have nothing to do with these elections despite the brute and indiscriminate force the secessionists are using to have their way. The message it sends it to the international community is clear: that the election sham is limited to one secessionist clan and should be seen as such.

Mr Duale should be left in no doubt that the SSC people will liberate themselves, that their secession is doomed to failure, that Somalia's unity will prevail  and that there will be no hiding place for those who committed human rights abuses and crimes against humanity in the SSC regions. They  will be hunted whether they live abroad or at home and brought to justice. It is not still too late for Mr Duale to repent, redeem himself and desert the sinking secessionist ship.

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.
