SOMALIA: The Alleged Inauspicious High Tech Scandal Second to Iraq Oil For

By Dr.Yusuf O. Al-Azhari
Frm Ambassador
Ominous scandal of high tech corruption Allegations in the International Agencies around the world seems to have been allegedly the practice for the last fifty years of this century. Despite it started in unsuspicious miniature way in the beginning as time progressed, it developed with the advancement of world modernized system of pilfering which spared no ethical norms known to man kind. The failure to achieve any commendable prestige in most of the countries where these Agencies are assigned shades doubt on the seriousness and viability of their activities. Most of the failure obviously occurred in their interventions in the Africa continent where they have even been accused allegedly of looting and rape as the case was in the Congo.
The world recalls the havoc episode of the Iraqi’s, Oil For Food scandal caused in the International circles when those who seemingly introduced the idea out of passion and good judgment to ease the suffering of the displaced, were the first to be shamed by those they employed who allegedly filch the largest portion of the steak. Thus inflicting great economic disaster mainly on the most deprived sector of the needy Iraqi community they came to assist. While the comparison of the two events in Iraq and Somalia is relative because Somalia has no Oil to exchange for food, yet the alleged damage scandal in Somalia is more outrageous than that of sharing rich countries resources.
The generosity of the International Community towards the desperate Somali people after the collapse of their government in 1991, spearheaded by the United States of America whose President George Bush the father rushed with great passion and noble human premonition, doubtlessly in genuine intentions, was the first head of State to visit Somalia at its hour of need, to witness the gravity of the situation and without reservation extended all possible assistance to the perilous displaced Somali community
who were at the time under the merciless soared of the War Lords. Somalis will never forget this premonition humane intuition of the United State Government and its then President whose Armed Forces opened blocked impassable roads to enable desperately needed food to reach thousands of starving Somali peasants. Despite the genuine Intentions, its ending in an agonizing disastrous, unforgettable torment was unfortunate. Yet the primary good will notions were highly commendable.
The UN Secretary General on his part darted the establishment of its Agency to assist the hundreds of thousands displaced people with promptness and good will. High ranking experienced experts were amalgamated from round the world. But the situation in Somalia was different from any of those the experts had experienced and needed different insight to tackle the cataclysm event. From the start the high ranking officials of the Agency employed the wrong advisors who mislead them throughout the course to their egocentric advantage rather than to those who needed the assistance. This delusion derailed the genuine intentions of the Organization.
It was only when the entire authority was mandated over to UNISOM and its canning advisors, being awarded free hand without any strict check and balance, the mal administration and misuse of the donations, meant to alleviate the sufferings of the desperate people was allegedly out of control and misappropriated. Consequently those allegations and the entrenching power of the insurgents exasperated the total collapse of UNISOM to an end in Somalia, without salvaging the displaced lives of hundreds of thousands of weak elderly people and children probably most of them dead.
After nearly twenty years of the Iraqi syndrome, history repeats itself in a much suave inhuman tragic demeanor, to a Nation which is not only the poorest on earth but lacks the most direly required element of Statehood.  It has been speculated that since the collapse of UNISOME in Somalia, the world body who’s Secretary General Butrus Butrus Ghali was the victim of this brazen scandal among other allegations that ended his re-election, has been drastically shaken up and reformed to better management.,,more

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.
