Costa, The Arms Embargo is NOT LIFTED

Postby Cilmiile » Wed Nov 29, 2006 8:58 pm

Costa You have misled people. The arms embargo is not lifted on Somalia.

The clip you posted showed the adoption of a draft resolution sponsored by Qatar and the most relevant point of the resolution, once you ignore all the bureacratic and legal bafflegab, is:

"stresses the obligation of all member states to comply fully with the measure imposed by resolution 733(1992).

Resolution 733(1992) is the one that originally brought the embargo into force.

Qaarxiye, cilmiile is thoroughly confused.

he is right, that resolution was to tighten the arms embargo and to make sure no countries violate it like iran, eritrea, and others have been doin by givin arms to the icu.

but the united states draft resolution was not denied, because it is not even up for adoption yet. the u.s is expected to turn in a resolution soon that calls for peace-keepers to somalia that are EXEMPT from the embargo. the draft resolution already has support from russia and china. the regular embargo is not goin to be lifted but tightened so the icu has no weapons comin in but soon it will be eased for the american-backed peace-keepers to come in.


its a win-win situation for the dawlad, cuz if it was lifted, then the icu would also be free to import weapons. that will not be the case now cuz it is unlikely they will be able to get even an ak47 now while fully armed and embargo-unaffected jareer and habash soldiers are comin to bomb them from their hideouts Laughing Laughing

DawladSade,

I am not confused. Costa posted a link and described it as the adoption of a resolution lifting the arms embargo agains the TFG.

The draft resolution they adopt is Resolution S/2006/921 put forward by Qatar and plainly states that all states have a moral obligation to enfore the arms embargo.

In other words they adopt the opposite of what Costa was telling us in that other thread.

The Link posted by Costa and a clarification of its contents are within the parameters of this discussion. All other resolutions and proposals are without.

UN council weighs tightening Somalia arms embargo

By Irwin Arieff

UNITED NATIONS, Nov 29 (Reuters) - The U.N. Security Council pledged on Wednesday to consider steps to tighten a widely ignored 1992 U.N. arms embargo on chaotic Somalia but offered no specifics.

A unanimous resolution expressed the 15-nation council's intention to "consider specific action" to improve the embargo after U.N. monitors reported that Djibouti, Egypt, Eritrea, Ethiopia, Iran, Libya, Saudi Arabia, Syria, Uganda and Yemen were providing illicit military support either to Somalia's interim government or its Islamist rivals.

Several of the countries named by the U.N. monitoring group this month have denied any impropriety, and a council committee has said it plans to give all of them a chance to confront the monitors at a meeting this week.

At the same time, U.S. Ambassador John Bolton said Washington was not yet ready to unveil a separate resolution authorizing African peacekeepers to help prop up the shaky Somali transitional government.

"We're still in consultation on that," Bolton told reporters. "We're moving as rapidly as we can."

The U.S. draft resolution would approve deployment of a joint peacekeeping force put together by the African Union and the regional Inter-Governmental Authority on Development (IGAD), as the two groups have requested.

Which means to legtimaize the Ethopian invasion and giving them blue hats and a UN resloution #.

And then Ethopia would use that number and say " all we are asking the Islamist is to comply with the Un Resolution # so and so and so Laughing sound familiar??

SET OFF ALARMS

But it set off alarms earlier this week when the Brussels-based International Crisis Group warned the text could backfire by undermining the transitional government, strengthening rival Islamists and leading to wider war.

The group, relying on an early draft, said it feared the measure would legitimize the presence in Somalia of Ethiopian troops sent in by Addis Ababa to back the interim government.

Because the Islamists are backed by Eritrean troops, the group said it feared the intervention in Somalia could deteriorate into a proxy war between Ethiopia and Eritrea, whose relations remain extremely tense years after a bloody border war between them.

But Jendayi Frazier, the U.S. assistant Secretary of State for African affairs, said in Washington on Wednesday that IGAD had itself ruled out putting troops from neighboring countries in the intervention force.

"The country that has said that it would deploy forces at this time is Uganda, and we would look for other countries that would be willing to do so from throughout Africa, but we are not expecting that any of the immediate neighbors would be deploying," Frazier told reporters.

The Islamists have been steadily expanding their reach and influence in Somalia after seizing the capital of Mogadishu in June. The United States says they are harboring al Qaeda operatives who pose a threat in the region and elsewhere.

After initially backing a coalition of warlords against the Islamist forces, the draft resolution signaled that Washington was now throwing its support behind the interim government.
