US, EU urged to boost support to African force in Somalia . President sharif appreciates UAE’s grant

 Summit of the East African Community on Tuesday urged the United States and the European Union to step up their support for AMISOM, the African Union's peacekeeping force in Somalia."The summit called upon the international community, in particular the US and the European Union, to enhance their support to AMISON including addressing the piracy menace," a final communique said.The EAC, which groups Tanzania with Burundi, Rwanda, Uganda and Kenya, also "commended Burundi and Uganda for the sacrifices borne out of their efforts to restore stability" in Somalia.The 9,000-strong force of Ugandan and Burundian troops deployed to protect the ailing Somali transitional federal government (TFG) has over the past five months regained significant ground in central Mogadishu.The TFG and AMISOM had long been confined to a few blocks, unable to take the battle to the Shebab, an Islamist insurgent movement that has controlled most of the Horn of Africa country for two years.AMISOM now controls around half of Mogadishu and is gradually tightening its grip around Bakara market, the heart of the capital's economic activity and a crucial source of funds for the Shebab.AMISOM top commander General Nathan Mugisha earlier this month said this was a turning point in the conflict and urged the world to help AMISOM break the back of the Islamist insurgency.Despite an increased international military presence off Somalia's coastline pirate attacks have surged and they have raked in huge ransoms.A total of 97 attacks were recorded off Somalia in the first quarter of this year, up from 35 in the same period last year, the International Maritime Bureau said in a report last week.Participants in Tuesday's summit in Tanzania's economic capital Dar es Salaam also backed the AU position in favour of extending the TFG's mandate for a year.The Kenyan, Burundian, Ugandan and Tanzanian presidents Mwai Kibaki, Pierre Nkurunziza, Yoweri Museveni and Jakaya Kikwete attended the summit, while Rwanda was represented by Prime Minister Bernard Makuza.The heads of state and government approved the nomination of Rwandan Health Minister Richard Sezibera as the next EAC secretary general.US, EU urged to boost support to African force in Somalia -AFP

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

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.
