How Al Shabaab's stronghold fell to SNA/AMISOM

(AMISOM )Kenya Defence Forces (KDF) have just done what none of any other armies in the world have ever done: defeating an Al Qaeda linked militant outfit.
Even the US and other mighty African armies have tried in Somalia but failed miserably. However KDF have proved to the world our might, skill and firepower.
Our boys and girls in uniform have made us proud and proved to the world that Kenya continues to flex her muscles as a regional military superpower.

On the night of Thursday, 27th September, four Kenyan warships approached the port city of Kismayu stealthily and in the silence of the night, deployed hundreds of special forces into the beaches of Kismayu in the morning of Friday 28th 2012.
According to David Goldman, a defense specialist, the special fighting troops made the beach landing using 11M Naval Special Warfare Rigid Inflatable Boats from Kenya naval warships.

Their spectacular beach and air landing, the first by an African country, helped main fighting units of the KDF storm the port city of Kismayu, and last lifeline of the Al Shabaab terrorists based in Somalia.
Kenya Air Force shelled Al Shabaab’s main armory and warehouse near the coast destroying both facilities completely denting the long term capacity to resupply.

According to strategic intelligence, KDF soldiers stormed Kismayu after mop up operations by elements of the special forces of the Kenya Army, sorties by the Kenya Air Force and strategic naval attacks on main enemy positions, assets, and defenses by the Kenya Navy.

Early Thursday, many Al Shabaab small unit leaders were dead forcing the key militia leaders to flee the city on Thursday afternoon. Anti- aircraft guns, ammunition, grenades, guns, and machine-guns were destroyed. The objective was to deny the militants arms, supplies, ammunition, communication, and leadership capabilities as the final push into the nerve center of the port city was made.
At exactly 0200HRS, Kenyan dreaded special forces landed in Kismayu from the air and sea while main fighting troops stormed the city from the north and west of the city as naval warships shelled the positions and defenses using 75mm guns from sea.
At about 0315 HRS, Kismayu port jetty and its west and north had finally fallen to the fighting battalions of the Kenya Defense Force who are now operating deep inside the port city.
KDF, took control of Kismayu’s heartbeat last week after special forces made drops to the city from special forces aircraft’s, while other KDF special forces slithered into the port city killing Al Shabaab fighting unit leaders, destroying their positions and blowing up their armory’s, ammunition supply centers and facilities.
Deaths of the militants unit leaders left units of the Al Shabaab without commanders hence hasty retreat far east of the city leaving the city without defenders.

The Kenya military is among the best trained in the developing world. Kenya's Air Force is the best in Africa. With arrival of one of the best and well-equipped naval ships, KNS Jasiri, The Kenya Navy's might is incomparable to any other in the whole of the East African coast.

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.
