Somalia and the secessionists, why we are losing.

The Myth of Somaliland aka One-Clan secessionist Enclave update            

 Whenever the country Somalia is discussed, it inevitably always leads to a political discussion about which direction the country is taking, could have taken, took and of course should not take. There you have a myriad of different opinions, some masquerading as facts from opinionated Somalis who believe they have a stake in the direction the country takes.Now i believe there is nothing wrong with discussing with your political opposites. 

There is nothing wrong with a secular accepting to debate someone who wants sharia as a source of legislation, or a Nationalist discussing the role of tribal elders with a confessed tribalist. No that is healthy and maybe even an advantageous step to take. However there must be limits to what you can debate and discuss for the sake of maintaining the integrity of the banner you hold.Today, Somalia's federal government is not abiding to this invisible rule, indeed they are discussing the partition of Somalia with secessionist provocateurs. To grant your enemies a platform and your own valuable time is to grant them legitimacy. That is the keyword here, legitimacy, because   the secessionist administration that is currently seated in Hargeisa is severely lacking it. 

The foreign countries and indeed Somalia's enemies have had to concede to the fact that only the Somali federal government has the right to decide who secedes and what is taken from Somalia. Granted having a bunch of foxes guarding a hen house is not the most assuring picture for any of us.However even Mogadishu must know that giving power away does not lead to increase in power, it decreases. 

Hassan Sheiks and the government he presides over have blatantly and shamefully disregarded the nationalists in the northern town Buhoodle and beyond who have waved the flag and the banner that says anything but secession. However our leaders in Mogadishu, our competent twitter savvy leaders, have not come to the aid to our brothers and sisters in rhetoric or physical assistance in their time of need.

The past meetings between Somalia & the secessionist provocateurs in Istanbul was a cruel joke. There were wild claims being made by the secessionist so called "officials" that their theft of land was being considered legitimate by Mogadishu and that the "separation" was imminent. 

These were obvious lies, but that did not matter as they already generated much circulated propaganda thanks to the tribal somali media and the largely silent government. The damage was done.Despite Mogadishu being in favor of the talks, they never once publicly explained what their aim was.Yes there was the repetitive slogan "We will bring them back to unity", but no specific demands nor requirements were put to the secessionists by Mogadishu. In other words, the republic's delegation were not prepared for anything other than sitting like good school boys and listening to the demands of the secessionists.

Even worse we rewarded their despicable behavior through announcing the air space of Somalia being handed over to these thieves. Thankfully the parliament intervened and invalidated such deals, and for good reason.There are fundamental question (s) we must ask ourselves, is there an enemy from within that detests the Somali republic so much that they willingly and deliberately sabotaging our chances to reclaim the north?, Does the president believe that strength come through concession's with no returns? Will we see more of this in the next meeting in Istanbul?

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.
