U.S. threatens sanctions on Somali peace spoilers





U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton on Thursday threatened sanctions against anyone blocking reforms intended to end Somalia's "hopeless, bloody conflict" and eradicate militant and pirate groups seen as a growing menace to world security.



"We will encourage the international community to impose further sanctions, including travel bans and asset freezes, on people inside and outside the TFG who seek to undermine Somalia's peace and security or to delay or even prevent the political transition."

Clinton and other speakers welcomed a February 17 agreement among Somali leaders on when its mandate plans for a parliament and constituent assembly to replace the TFGexpires in August.




"Time is of the essence," said Clinton. "The TFG will soon transition out of power. We need to build something in its place"

Conference calls for urgent action in Somalia


Global leaders have called for urgent action on Somalia, warning that the world will "pay the price" for failing to help the country tackle its political instability, civil war and pirates.

Speaking at the conference in London along with dozen other leaders on Thursday, David Cameron, the British prime minister, said the “problem in Somalia is a complex jigsaw puzzle where every piece has to be put into place. It is all about the patient work of helping the Somali people to re-build their country from bottom-up,” he said.

Cameron concluded: “So, today, we have reached agreements on seven key areas: security, piracy, terrorism, humanitarian assistance, local stability, reinvigorating political process and international co-ordination."



Hillary Clinton, US secretary of state, said the "time is ripe to fix Somali’s problems but it must be done by its citizens".

"For decades, the world has focused on what we could prevent from happening in Somalia - be it conflict, famine, or other disasters. Now we are focused on what we can build. The opportunity is real," she said.

But... but... their government is evil and they need to be liberated by democracy. We should bomb them for their own security. My TV told me this is the path to progress... right?


Just kidding.

This isn't surprising in the least. Iran hasn't presented an opening for invasion yet, so the military deployments that have already been made should be used productively in another part of the overall plan.

Weren't the Americans in Somalia in the early 90s, but then they left? I guess the west suddenly found some urgent reason to "help" them again, aside from using their waters to dump nuclear waste that ultimately created the pirate situation in that country.

The video is nothing more than a general talking about the Project for a New American Century doctrine. PNAC officials made up Bush's regime. They instituted their doctrine of hard force to acquire their geopolitical interests. The doctrine continues today under Obama, if not simply for the fact that a partial acheivement of the strategy will not fortify what the whole strategy plans. The biggest targets are left to the end of the list because they are geostrategically weaker when countries around them (or other supporting countries) are already routed from previous wars in the overall campaign (ie, how Afghanistan and Iraq are two of four fronts on Iran).

By now everyone knows that video talking about 7 nations in 5 years, net noone asks the right question.

He says "the US has 5 years before the NEXT SUPERPOWER"

Yet nobody seems to elaborate/care on that... I'm really interested in finding out who this new super power will be

India?

Militants say they have ambushed Somali President's convoy






MOGADISHU (AFP) - Somalia's Al-Qaeda-linked Shebab insurgents ambushed President Hassan Sheikh Mohamud on Tuesday, the militants said, claiming to have destroyed vehicles with rocket-propelled grenades.

"We ambushed a convoy that was escorting the self-appointed Somali President," Shebab spokesman Abdulaziz Abu Musab told AFP, adding that fighting was continuing near the port of Merka. There were no immediate reports of any casualties.

The ambush took place near the small settlement of Buffow, close to the port of Merka, a former Shebab stronghold captured one year ago around 100km south of the capital.

“We were tracking his (Mohamud’s) movements...the fighting is still going on,” Mr Musab said.

These events are happening exponentially. I hope one day I can look back and pinpoint the exact day the go was given for these series of events.
9/11 ? I knew the towers had something symbolic...
