Who Runs the Show in SOMALIA?The Muslim Brotherhood Salafist Movement,Elite Clan Leaders? ETHIOPIA-IGAD? UN or Somali People-Citizens?

To understand Somali issues we must think in a "controversial way" and "Manipulative way of doing POLITICS" taking into account the Long standing "Power Struggle" between different Somali   social-political-economic  forces using Somali CLANS and Sub-Clans. Some are allied to ETHIOPIA-IGAD Countries like the "Elite  Puppet Leaders"  specially with ETHIOPIA and SUDAN and Muslim Brotherhood Salafist Business Cartels/Organized crimes/Drug Traffickers ( Read my post "Who are the Business People of Somalia  Muslim Brotherhood " and. the post called" For the new PM: Lesson from a recent past"). Others are those I call the CLAN Nationalist and Moderate Islamist- who are not in power but supported by the majority of the people-citizens- who accept RULE of Law and democracy.In the Somali political murky system   there is also the Role  the so- called International Community which although united under the banner of the UN, AFRICAN UNION-IGAD, EUROPEAN  UNION-UK ,  and USA , others like Arab Nations-I mean Saudi Arabia , Qatar,Abu-Dhabi,Egypt - and TURKEY are all  still divided on the so- called "SOMALIA  CONFLICT Resolution".The countries members of AU/AMISOM Military contingent  everyone has its Policy/Agenda  toward SOMALIA as a "new colonizing" power except those countries from the West of Africa.
         
 
This short introduction will serve to prepare us on understanding the last "Timeline  of events" in Somalia specially the last three months ( when I say Somalia it encompasses all regions-  from Ras Kamboni to Ras Asser-including Puntland and SOMALILAND regions, Jubba regions etc)  and its repercussions on the "ongoing struggle" for SOMALIA  and its "resources like OIL and GAS".
       
 
  (1) Let me start first with the event of the full recognition by the US government of the Somali Muslim Brotherhood Federal Government and the consequent visit of President Hassan to USA. With the new "US policy" for Muslim Brotherhood Somalia President Hassan met with US Big  OIL Companies who are holding the concessional Rights of about 70% of Somali OIL Basins last re-signed in 1989 by the Siad Barre regime.There is the story "making the rounds" that the Somali Minster for OIL and Mineral resources resigned another time those Rights  for the US Big Companies. This  has great significance for the Sovereignty,Territorial Integrity and Unity of the Somali  Federal Republic. The so- called Elite Clan Leaders of Somaliland regions, Puntland  regions and even Jubba regions were trying all these years to give new  concessional rights for exploration to Chinese,France,Brasil and Italy companies on those old OIL and GAS Basins under the guise of so- called sovereignty of CLAN-ENCLAVES- self declared States- Pseudo Self-Determination Rights.( Read my post OIL and GAS,Mini CLAN ENCLAVES,ETHIOPIA-IGAD HEGEMONY and the post called (" The pseudo Self- Determination Rights of Somali Clan Enclaves" of July 2014).. The US government promised to fully participate in the Institution Building of the Somali Federal State and specially in the rebuilding of the National security services like the Army,Intelligence. and Police. But the most important is the" recognition that Somalia could not be sub-divided in CLAN ENCLAVES based on Sub-Clan Blood Lineage" and . the Sovereignty of Somalia is fully represented by the Somali Federal Republic.My Question is how the US new Policy will be seen by ETHIOPIA and some IGAD countries? They will accept it? What about their local allies the Somali Elite-Clan Puppet Leaders and the Salafist Movement specially the Salafist Business Cartels/Organized crimes groups who control the Economy of all Somalia?
       
 
 (2) UN Security Council came to Mogadishu in a Historic visit including all 15 members. They met with the Muslim Brotherhood Somali Federal Government including the President,PM and his Cabinet, Somali civil society groups and two of the so-called regional Leaders like the Chairman of Jubba regions  and Galmudug.region.
The UN Security Council fully endorsed what the Somali government calls the "NEW VISION PLAN" (benchmarks) which together with UN and IGAD is to remake all the Somali regions- based on the last 18 made by the Siad Barre regime- as a new Institutions  made in a new Federated regional governments as a devolution of power and more sharing of National Resources between regions.. This new  Plan is made also with the End game of having National and local  Elections, presidential, Parliamentary elections  including a Referendum for the New Constitution,  in all  the Somali Republic by Middle 2016. Did the IGAD countries, AMISOM  and ETHIOPIA, Elite Clan puppet Leaders,Salafist Movement  fully Cooperate with the Re-establishment of the Somali (Federal) Republic? Where all Clans- Communities are Equal in front of the Law,  all people-citizens of a country where the Rule of the Law is supreme and the people- citizens  elect their own Leaders? I do not believe the ETHIOPIA -IGAD group ha given up its Plans to sub-colonize Somalia and subdivide it in CLAN-ENCLAVES.
         
 
(3) Mr. DR.Abdiweli Ali Gaas-President of the so- called regional State of Puntland refused to meet the UN Security Council members when they came to Mogadishu and afterwards left for ETHIOPIA for the usual "consultation".He also had a problem with.the Muslim Brotherhood Somali Federal government  because "he sees his region as a  Clan Enclave which is sovereign State and part of a Confederate Somalia".He would like to have Somalia subdivided in "Would be Con-federal Republic where Puntland region is one of the Constituent States".He got the support of the ETHIOPIA-IGAD group in the Region all this years.How the UN,US EU Turkey,Arab Nations who are those  stand for Somali Nationhood and UNITY,Sovereignty will deal with this Clan Enclaves Separatism?.

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.
