Foreign Al-Shabaab mercenaries pour into Yemen as unrest continues, Al Qaeda linked Shabaab Moves Troops To Yemen, U.S. strikes al Qaeda affiliate in Somalia. Second Airstrike Hit Southern Somalia Al Qaeda linked Al-Shabaab Targets


U.S. strikes al Qaeda affiliate in Somalia UPDATE
Al Qaeda linked Soldiers from Somalia’s al-Shabaab have evacuated more than 70 troops to Yemen. The group is aligned with the al-Qaeda affiliate in the Arabian Peninsula, and is in constant conflict with the government in Mogadishu. Recently, pressure has mounted around their bases in Somalia, leading to the evacuation of 76 troops on a boat headed for Yemen which includes top-level Shabaab leaders.In the past few weeks, a joint Pentagon/CIA operation has mounted an offensive on the Somalian militants as the latter became closer to al-Qaeda, vowing allegiance to leadership after Osama was killed. An air strike recently killed 39 militants in the southern Somalian town of Kismayo via rockets fired from a helicopter. Ironically, these militants were originally empowered from a CIA plan several years ago that funded Somali warlords in efforts to marginalize al-Shabaab.al-Shabaab has had some success against African Union and domestic security forces but has recently lost vast amounts of territory. A major holding has reverted to autonomous government control, and the success of US incursions has put them on the brink. While moving to Yemen may temporarily offer some safety, the US has an established presence on the ground there as well. However, the recent chaos in the country may have tied up that presence, offering Shabaab militants a greater chance at safety. Further evacuations are to continue, according to al-Shabaab sources, and US strikes are as well. YTD The United States launched a second air strike in southern Somalia this week, Airstrikes Hit Al-Shabaab Targets in Lower Juba. Three helicopters today targeted an al-Shabaab training camp in Taabta village, 20 kilometers west of Qoqani district in Lower Juba, according to local residents and a government official.“There was a heavy gunfire between the two sides and the helicopters returned. In the last days we could hear the sounds of airplanes,” said a resident in Qoqani, who suspected the planes were used for reconnaissance.A TFG military officer in Dhobley district, who requested anonymity, confirmed the attack to local journalist   and says a friendly government conducted the strike. “I can’t give you more information, but we have been aware the attack. Helicopters from our friends were involved the strike. It was a successful mission. I’m sure the terrorists were slain in that camp,” said the officer. According to a local journalist much of current kinetic activity is a direct result of intelligence gathered from the possessions of the recently killed Fazul Abdullah Mohammed and a high level Kenyan al Qaeda member. Last week, airstrikes hit al-Shabaab camps near Kismayo, allegedly by the US and 'partner' countries.

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.
