Tribal enclave separatist Puntland sings ‘secret deal’ with Saracen Energy Company, based in Houston

An article under the guise of false coastal guard training mission, was posted on Garoweonline.com:  Puntland signed an agreement with Sarecen Company to train its Marine Forces,  a clear indication that Farole’s camp is once again attempting to cover up the ‘oil exploration deal’  signed with Saracen Energy Group, based in Houston. The story conceals the bargain and communicates fictitious message: “Government of Puntland is of the firm belief that Saracen International will make a significant contribution to establish, train and mentor the Puntland Marine Force according to the strict rules, guidelines and restrictions that are issued by the highest office of the Puntland government,” Garowe Online. Other reports mentioned another company: Kuwait Energy Group  has been contracted to make oil and mineral explorations in Puntland, but no one knows their level of involvement in Puntland’s illusive deal making.
In the past, Puntland leased commercial oil and mineral exploration rights to Range Resources, African Oil (Canmax) and other dubious companies. All efforts failed after the people of the region revolted against the misuse and exploitation of the federally mandated Somalia’s resources. In 2006 an armed conflict broke out between Puntland Dervish Forces with Puntland Intelligence Service on one side, and local militia in Majayahan mountainous belt. At least 15 people including 9 soldiers lost their lives. The project was abandoned after the government failed to subdue the militia which was led by Mohamed Said Atom. President Adde Muse, then in power called off military operations and ordered troops to pull out of the region.
Four years later, and another president in power, this time Mr. Farole, a new conflict erupted in Galgala near Majayahan. Mr. Farole (current Puntland President) lived in Australia in 2006, and was initially instrumental in the original negotiations with Range Resource and Africa Oil. In fact, the  doomed oil and mineral exploitation scheme masterminded by none other than Farole and Issa Dholawa,  has been revived after Farole came to power in 2009. The current fighting in Galgala, Madarshoon, Karin, and many places in Western Bari are  affiliated to the conflicts in the past, and the same rebels led by Mohamed Atom has been fighting a fierce battle against invading Puntland Dervish Army alongside the Puntland Intelligence Service (PIS, a.k.a Ashahaado La Dirir).
Independent news media reported at least 200 soldiers killed and dozens wounded in the war.  The devastation for the civilian population has been enormous–farms were set ablaze; civilians died in the cross fire; tens of  thousands became displaced. The elders of the region requested a period of disengagement, however president Farole refused elders’ plea. He called his clansmen to take arms against the people of Western Bari Region.  ”The war in Galgala is not winnable due to the terrain and the mistrust people have in the administration,” said one of the elders. Meanwhile, the war continuous unabated, and the casualties continue to grow despite the opposing military victory claims by both the government and the militia in the region.
Notwithstanding the government claim that Atom’s forces were crushed, the militia group leader spoke to the media and claimed strong presence of his forces in the region. “Puntland has been spreading a baseless propaganda in order to silence  the people of Galgala, and to exploit their natural resources,” Mohamed Atom said.
The latest admission of the Farole administration to pursue the abandoned mineral and oil project in the Western Bari Region is contrary to what they mentioned  to the media , in the past months. Whether they guise under different name or utilize tactics coherent with their diversions, the truth will  come out in the open, ultimately. It’s here for you to see the company depicted as a marine resources organization–Saracen Energy Company official website.

Saracen is an unpopular, conservative owned Energy Company found by American West Coast Imperialist group who cherish destroying innocent communities as they proudly present in their website. “The Saracen name dates back to warriors of the Middle Ages but is also connected to an important chapter in Texas history…Alamo,” Saracen History.
Amazingly, Farole and his allies have many things in common with this group–destruction of innocent people, looting property, embracing tyranny and ego-centric ideologies.
In the light of recent events that unfolded in Puntland, and as far as central and West Africa, these kind of illegitimate projects seem to be sprouting. Those companies and their collaborators are engaged in exploiting under developed Africa through illegal arrangements.
As far as the conflict in Puntland is concerned, President Farole boldness and misuse of power will only further and strengthen the local resistance forces. Since he came to power, Puntland has been unstable and a dangerous place. Daily bombing, political assassinations and clan warfare have quadrupled , and of course, President Farole is the one to blame.

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.
