snm were the Somali equivalent of the free syrian army.
They were Ethiopian stooges and terrorist scum who killed thousands of unarmed civilans.
I remember them being put against the wall of the police station in Xudun, and being shot like the terrorist scum they were.
Don't compare USC, SNM and the Omar Jess lead SPM with the free Syrian army. The Somali freedom fighters fought a dictatorship that was corrupt, ineffective and that used qabyaalad to stay in Power. They used Ethiopia in order to get weapons but they were not used and controlled by the Ethiopian regime for the simple fact that they didn't create these rebel groups, nor did they carry out military operations with them like they did with Abdullahi Yusuf militia.
In contrast to these righteous groups, you have Morgan and Afweynes son who stole millions of dollars from the central bank only to fund their clan warfare.
The free Syrian army is carrying out the plans of the Wahhabis in Saudi Arabia, The Israelis and the Americans. They get weapon, intelligence, foreign fighters some are even professionally trained soldiers but no one gave this type of support to any of the Somali groups.That's why you shouldn't compare.
