PRESIDENT Yoweri Museveni has demanded changes in the operations of the United Nations Security Council in order to give the organisation more legitimacy and credibility from member states.

Addressing the Security Council summit on Thursday, Museveni said it is an injustice that Africa, with 53 member states and a population of over one billion, has no permanent representation on this council.

Museveni further proposed that the council strives to be more even handed and transparent in its approach and decisions to dispel the perception that on some issues, vested interests override fairness. He said the permanent representation would ensure that Africa’s interests are protected. Museveni is among world leaders who are attending the 65 United Nations General Assembly at its New York headquarters in the US.
He told the 15-member security council meeting that Uganda welcomes the strengthening of Security Council’s strategic partnership with the African Union, as well as other regional organisations which maintain peace and security. He, however, said the UN should optimise the contribution by the organisations which have advantages of proximity, capability to mobilise and respond quickly, observing that in the recent past, the number of missions carried out in pursuit of peace by these organisations had increased. “It should be clear to all that all the major African problems that have been solved have been regional led, like the independence of Mozambique, Zimbabwe and even South Africa, the defeat of Idd Amin and Mobutu, the addressing of the Sudan problem, the stopping of genocide in Rwanda the problem of Burundi, Somalia, Liberia and Sierra Leon,” he stated.
Museveni explained that where the UN works with the regional organisations or internal forces within each country, the results have been better and durable. He suggested that the UN supports the efforts of those organisations and internal forces. Museveni observed that where the UN has tried to work alone to solve African problems, it has made mistakes. “It is enough to point out the death of Patrice Lumumba in UN hands and its tragic consequences for Congo,” he recalled. On Somalia, Museveni observed that what is needed is financial support. “This is one area where more support from UN and other international partners is urgently needed.” He remarked that the UN was founded to prevent conflict between nations, avert future wars and strengthen cooperation among its member states. “In order to ensure effective action by the UN, its members conferred on the security council the primary responsibility for the maintenance of international peace and security,” he said, adding that emphasis was on quick and strong action which he said must be maintained. Museveni urged the security council to devise means of addressing the causes of intractable conflicts around the world, as well as new threats, such as transnational organised crime, drug trafficking, terrorism and piracy, which, he said, must be dealt with, more resolutely. Earlier the President attended the opening session of the 65 UN general assembly addressed by US President Barrack Obama, UN Secretary General Ban Ki Moon, African Union President, Bingu Wamuthalika and Kenyan President Mwai Kibaki.

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.
