Somali pirates discover a new method , Deadly Sailing Season Begins in Gulf of Aden

Somali pirates have found a new method of safely committing dastardly crimes at sea and getting away scot-free. They have as a weapon of blackmail a large tanker carrying 300 thousand tons of crude oil, which they threaten to blow up if they are in danger of being captured. Ecologists are in panic. The spilling of 300 thousand tons of crude into the sea will cause a global ecological disaster, the consequences of which are difficult to predict, said Alexei Knizhnikov of the World Wild Nature Fund. "The blowing up of the tanker and the spilling of its content into the sea bodes evil for the entire world, especially if it happens close to the coast. Such an incident could be similar to the one in the Gulf of Mexico , caused by the explosion on the BP oil platform. Three years ago, a tanker poured 4 thousand tons of crude oil-almost one hundred fold less than the amount of oil on the tanker seized by the Somali pirates, into the gulf of Kerch. Thousands of birds perished in that incident; if the Somali hoodlums carry out their threat, the fallout would be horrendous," declared Knizhnikov.The pirates seized the Sambo Dream ship in April , en route from Iraq to the US with its cargo of crude oil. The protracted negotiations between the owner of the tanker and the cargo and the pirates failed to produce results; the pirates wanted a ransom of 20 million dollars, but nobody was prepared to give the bandits such an amount of money, even though the oil the tanker is carrying is worth 70 million dollars and the vessel itself 60 millions. The “Sambo Dream” is the 3rd tanker seized by the pirates, and ransoms were paid for the first two in 2008 and 2009, when the pirates were not as greedy as they are now. Neither the International Court nor UN resolutions have frightened the pirates, meaning that more drastic measures are needed to deal with the Somali pirates, said Alexander Gurov, a member of the Russian State Duma’s security committee."In the middle ages, the scourge of piracy was rampant, but when a real war was declared against pirates, the evil of piracy disappeared. Pirates were surrounded at sea and eliminated; they were liquidated on the Islands, where they camped out. Piracy is once more upon the world. It is obvious that in addition to the agreements reached between the countries in the world, there is a need to thrash out a legal basis to permit the treatment of pirates like ordinary terrorists," suggests Gurov. "Fast moving war ships should hunt down pirates and liquidate them. Another effective method of dealing with the problem, which has a potentially huge economic advantage, is to help countries from which pirates come to take care ot citizens so as to discourage them from joining the ranks of the pirates," Gurov advises.
Meanwhile, war ships shadowing the seized Sambo Dream at a safe distance are not planning a storming. The pirates’ blackmail strategy is working.Source: Voice of Russia

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.
