Optimism is the way to goWe'll run them out eventually fam, don't worry
Without AMISOM and foreigners like the Turks this government would be over run in two days. I hear it everyday on this forum about how AMISOM rapes and abuses Somali women which is true and disgusting but like you said you rather take improvements just like the rest of Politicians and turn a blind eye on abuses of our Sisters and Daughters. Somalia is a Somali problem just like Afghanistan is a Afghan problem. No foreigner is going to make you sit down with your brother and achieve peace. Did Puntland need AMISOM did Somaliland need AMISOM? If both Somaliland and Puntland can achieve security and rule of law why can't Somalia?I know I personally strongly distrust AMISOM, especially after abuses against our women and obvious back-door politics have come to light, however, I feel their administration are actually making some improvements to the Somali National Army....We'll run them out eventually fam, don't worry.
I am sure most equipment and equipment necessary for a national army to be affective against home grown cancers (Alkebab) were destroyed or broken BECAUSE:
I have recently been clearing A LOT of new equipment for the army. It says going to AMISOM, so I was initially angry thinking that they have been strengthening their presence for the past year, but all of this equipment was actually destined for the SNA. I am about to clear another huge shipment, and after some questions, that's where I discovered it.
Ambulances, firetrucks, water and fuel tankers, Armored police vehicles and buses etc. Also ALOT of hospital and medical equipment.
Am I naive for being happy? What are your thoughts?
Puntland can have a popultion of 10 people doesn't matter they have peace and didn't need African troops to accomplish it. Somaliland had to make peace with Gadurbursi which in no way or shape a minority clan. They had a Gadurbursi President from 2002-2010. They had to make peace with Issa, Warsangali and other minority clan. They had to share power in order to survive have peace and did it without African Troops. Like I said Somalia is a Somali problem and only Somalis can solve it.Puntland is a desert has a pop of 1million ppl somaliland is just 1 major clan and all know each other south somalia is 6-7 million ppl its the prize of somalia.
Dude shabaab withdraw from Xamar voluntarily, AMISOM did not drove them out. AMISOM is the worst thing that happened to Somalia since the independence and they are biggest reason why SNA is so unequipped. Also AMISOM mandate is the biggest reason why Kenya and Ethiopia are so successfully undermining Somalia. We never needed them and hopefully they will start packing by 2016.While Amison are not angles and are not purely in Somalia to help Somalis, with out them Somali state will not have come back. I was in Mogadishu the day Alkabab left Mogadishu and we drove through jidka wadnaha, Amison have actually fought street by street fighting with Alkabab.
If HSM have been an effective leader by this time our reliance of them would have decreased considerably.
SNA as well as other security agencies can actually handle the security of the country with proper leadership and support but if we can't even mange to make sure the financial support we received from turkey to reach security forces will this government and HSM use locally raised sources funds to support the security forces?
Amison is a double edged knife when you include Ethiopia, it is upto us how we manage it.
