It goes without saying that Somalis have gone through a lot of problems and hardships for the last 20 years. These problems were due to different reasons such as individual interests, regional interests and international interests plus lack of clear knowledge of a common interest by the Somali People.

The Somali common man is always a victim of the above interests and these interests are supported by leaders with also selfish non-long lasting interests. And this is what made the Somali people and their country more vulnerable to such devastating interests.

It is these leaders that decide the destiny of the Somali people using the power vested on them by the so called international community of which I believe is hardly committed of introducing and supporting a long lasting peace and reconciliation within the Somali community.

I think most of us are not happy with current situation that our country is going through and this is because of the painful experiences that we come across on daily basis either from the death of our fellow citizens in the our country or the inhuman arrests and torture to the Somali people by the ruthless security forces in different countries with the name of illegal immigrants.

I understand that the Somali problems can not only be expressed on mere writing of one or two stories but let me come back to the purpose of this article with the topic of BE CAREFUL MR. PRESIDENT. Every Somali citizen is aware of the current conflict between the Transitional Federal Institutions especially the Parliament headed by the speaker Sharif Hassan and the executive headed by the president Sheikh Sharif and the Prime Minister Mr Farmajo.
These leaders had a difference when it comes to the extension of the mandate of TFIs. The parliament has extended its mandate without the approval and the consultation of the TFG and argued that failure to give more mandate to the current parliament can cause a power vacuum within the government institutions hence more chaos and violence in the country while the TFG opposed that idea.
On the other hand the government extended its mandate for one more year and this caused an ideological difference with in the government institutions. Finally the two sides agreed for the extension of their mandate by one year.

Mean while, the government was in war with the armed opposition side and made recognizable gains and victories by taking over more territories from the opposition. This attracted them a lot of confidence and support from the Somali people who saw this opportunity as the only left hope for them to go back and rebuild their beloved country.
They say there is no smoke without fire. This was achieved by united patriotic Somali educated cabinet who has dedicated their time and energy to make their country a peaceful one unlike their previous colleagues who only looked after their individual interests rather than their national interests.

I salute the Prime minister and his government for their restless effort to make sure that security is introduced and maintained in our beloved country together with the president whose efforts were paralyzed by people who pretended to be loyal to him but in the real sense were not honest in working with him such as the previous cabinet, the speaker of the parliament, some AU member states and the United Nations special representative for Somalia Mr. Mahiga whose aim is to further destroy the relative peace that was hardly achieved by the current government.

We understand that there is a reconciliation conference taking place in Kampala as I write this article which is meant to mediate the TFI leaders whose objectives are totally different. There is a suggestion that the current cabinet be dissolved and a new one formed which represents the two sides (The government and parliament). It is believed that this is meant to derail the government efforts by including the cabinet to some members whose ideology is to serve the interests of the enemy of the Somali people.

My humble advice and warning to the president is that he takes care on the decision of sharing power with ideologically different people. MR President kindly know that “comma can kill a man”. Any decision that you take today can either lead to the destruction of many Somali lives or save many Somali lives.

You better resign Mr. President instead of sharing power with people who will obviously paralyze the government activities in the future and Mr. President take in to account that if Mr Farmajo is gone then be sure that you will also be gone in the near future. BE CAREFUL MR. PRESIDENT.

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.
