Uganda to invade Kismaayo?

Postby Voltage » Sun Mar 07, 2010 3:05 pm

There is a rumour going on, Uganda is preparing to actually invade Kismaayo from the sea. Don't know how true it is but with all the rumours going on has anyone else heard about this?

Uganda can barely complete their mandate in Mogadishu. What makes you think they have enough resources to invade Kismayo?

What makes you think Uganda is in Muqdisho because of its own resources. If they were going to invade Kismaayo, it would mean they would be covered.

To do that they need 5,000 soilders armed to teeth with heavy armourment.

But if Shabab are defeated in Kismayu thats the end of them.

Maybe you are right, anyways If this is true and is successful I hope innocent lives aren't taken and TFG can hold the city firmly without constant skirmishes from Shabab, like in Beledweyne. Who will hold the city and successfuly thwart Shabab without Ugandan assistance?

It's amazing how the Somali conflict has turned into one in which players such as Ugandan mercenaries or Afgani /Arab mercenaries are involved.

As much as I despise the religious pretenders, an invasion of Kismanyo from the sea by Ugandan mercenaries would be a dark spot in our history.

No reason for the UGandans to go to Kismayo, a series of airstrikes and special ops will annihilate their command structure and the foot soldiers will be dealt with by the TFG :clap:


Somaliweyn,

Dark spot ? Al Qaeda are a much worse enemy than Ugandans.

Guys if they can do it in Mogadishu than they can do it easily in Kismayoo.The thing is that the people of Mogadishu do now support the Ugandans, Therefore for the Ugandans to be able to stay in Kismayoo they must have local support from either the Merehan or Ogaden locals.
In kenya 2, 500 somalis have already been trained for the TFG, these are mostly Ogadens. If these troops are placed alongside Amisom in Kismayoo then the locals would support them and kismayoo would be secured.
Whoever the locals support always has the upper hand and in Mogadishu it is the TFG that has strong support and thus do Amisom

How is it any different from the conflicts in the early nineties when Somali Islamists were being support by Islamists from other countries and on the other side you had the UN, US and Ethiopia on different occasions?

somalia is a creationg of the colonail powers and it will never stand on two feets.
As for the 'Islamic militants' they were mostly saudi agents whose goal was to distabilise somalia

as for Ethiopia its aim is clear crystall that no somali state will ever be its neighbour however much you try to befriend them.

Says who?
especialy when they have banned WFP from operating leading to food prices sky rocketing.

Even the civilians are tired with this guys who preach water and drink wine.
