Can Fomer Somali Defense Minister, Member of Parliament Colonel Barre Adan Shire (Barre Hirale), Help TFG-KDF Take Kismayo? Yes , In Our Opinion he is the only one that Can Defeat Domestic and International Terrorists in the Jubbaland region of Somalia

 update on Ethiopian Army Demand Ransom For The Release of kidnapped Somali Army Commander MP : Bare Aden Shire The Former Somali Defence MinisterFomer Somali Defense Minister,Member of Parliament  Colonel Barre Adan Shire (Barre Hirale), yesterday left Ethiopian 'custody' in Dolow and made his away to El Wak (Ceel-waaq) in Gedo region, which is under the control of Transitional Federal Government (TFG) and Kenyan Defense Forces (KDF).
Hirale, also the former leader of Juba Valley Alliance (JVA), has been in Dolow, home to an Ethiopian training camp in southern Somalia bordering Ethiopia, for the last two years.
Colonel Barre was accompanied by Colonel Aden Mohamed Wacey (Adan Koronto) and number of his special staff. While the Ethiopians said he was free to leave at anytime, sources close to him told terror free Somalia  that some of his former militia men planned the escape, hiding him in a car fleeing Dolow. The Ethiopians, however, were fully aware of his departure, the source stressed.
“The MP has taken a long journey from Dolow and is now safe and with the army in El Wak and under the guard of his militiamen," said another source.
The Colonel was not on good terms with Ethiopia after Ethiopian forces detained Hirale in May of last year over disputes about how to conduct military operations and then released him a month later in June 2011.
Hirale is vital to politics in southern somalia because he controlled the city port of Kismaayo for eight years. People see that he is key military strategist and strong political player in Juba and Gedo regions because of his popularity and the massive support he has in Kismayo, one that might be able to turn the side against al-Shabaab, which now controls the port city.
News of his arrival in El Wak has been met with skepticism, speculation and joy. Unconfirmed reports suggested there was a new relationship between Bare Hirale and KDF officials. Somali political experts believe that with Hirale Kenya has now received a key military strategist and strong political player in the southern Somalia. Ethiopia, on the other hand, doesn't want to see Hirale in charge of Kismayo, a vital commercial city."Hirale and Ethiopia have been on bad terms since he arrived in Dolow when he was arrested in 2011. Then he was released after some time, he was not happy staying there. He made several contacts with the Kenyan government, but those contacts failed for many reasons, but he didn't hesitated to continue contacting the government. Finally they had made some kind of good agreement, and that is why right now he is with the TFG and KDF forces," Colonel Warfaa, TFG Spokesman in Gedo and Juba region, told terror free somalia.
Meanwhile, TFG forces celebrated his return."Barre arrived in the district late yesterday with some of his guard and TFG forces welcomed them. Mr. Hirale addressed the soldiers and encouraged them to continue their fight against the al-Shabaab militants. Barre had a meeting with the commanders of the TFG and we have discussed in that meeting military issues," said Colonel Warfaa."We are very glad he arrived. We welcomed him with open hands and hearts. He is a member of the Somali parliament also he is a good military strategist so he can lead us. We do not have a problem with him and he is endorsed by our forces," added the colonel. Hirale is from Marehan, a sub clan of Darod, and is a current MP has a strong force of about 800 men, trained and equipped by Ethiopia which fights against al-Shabaab in Gedo region. They are mainly from the Marehan clan and although they use Ahlu Suna Wal Jamaa as their cover, they are considered as both clan militia and TFG force.

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.
