  1. On April 12, 2010, by Executive Order 13536, the President declared a national emergency pursuant to the International Emergency Economic Powers Act (50 U.S.C. 1701-1706) to deal with the unusual and extraordinary threat to the national security and foreign policy of the United States constituted by the deterioration of the security situation and the persistence of violence in Somalia; acts of piracy and armed robbery at sea off the coast of Somalia, which have been the subject of United Nations Security Council resolutions; and violations of the arms embargo imposed by the United Nations Security Council. The situation with respect to Somalia continues to pose an unusual and extraordinary threat to the national security and foreign policy of the United States. For this reason, the national emergency declared on April 12, 2010, and the measures adopted on that date and on July 20, 2012, to deal with that threat, must continue in effect beyond April 12, 2024. Therefore, in accordance with section 202(d) of the National Emergencies Act (50 U.S.C. 1622(d)), I am continuing for 1 year the national emergency declared in Executive Order 13536. Press Release: Notice on the Continuation of the National Emergency With Respect to Somalia | The White House WWW.WHITEHOUSE.GOV On April 12, 2010, by Executive Order 13536, the President declared a national emergency pursuant... Executive Order 13536 concerning Somalia I, BARACK OBAMA, President of the United States of America, find that the deterioration of the security situation and the persistence of violence in Somalia, and acts of piracy and armed robbery at sea off the coast of Somalia, which have repeatedly been the subject of United Nations Security Council resolutions (including Resolution 1844 of November 20, 2008; Resolution 1846 of December 2, 2008; Resolution 1851 of December 16, 2008; and Resolution 1897 of November 30, 2009), and violations of the arms embargo imposed by the United Nations Security Council in Resolution 733 of January 23, 1992, and elaborated upon and amended by subsequent resolutions (including Resolution 1356 of June 19, 2001; Resolution 1725 of December 6, 2006; Resolution 1744 of February 20, 2007; Resolution 1772 of August 20, 2007; Resolution 1816 of June 2, 2008; and Resolution 1872 of May 26, 2009), constitute an unusual and extraordinary threat to the national security and foreign policy of the United States, and I hereby declare a national emergency to deal with that threat.

  2. Bloody African colony, we are now. It is a travesty. Saddest thing I read today: hundreds of kids sired by AMISOM/ATMIS soldiers and their Somali mothers had to be relocated for safety reasons. Here is another, a complete Bantuazation of the whole country, yet unemployment amongst the young is the highest: Over 8000 Kenyas have secured jobs in Somali Land. They claim they work and live in peaceful and cool environment.
  3. It means Jibouti is a Somali territory, the same as S Galbeed and NFD, and no different from any territory in the FGS territories.
  4. Here is an example of some of the critical projects he tried to stymie. You still think he is good for the nation? And for the road connecting Qabri daharre - Dollow - Garacad under construction.
  5. 2nd Group: Atletico vs Dortmund: 2 - 1 PSG vs Barca: 2 - 3
  6. The elites and general public will not stand for it, and no politician has the stomach to do that, even if they wish to tango dance with the idea. As noted before, PL is now the de facto Federal gov't. If any breaking away is to be discussed, it is HSM who is deviating from agreed principles engaging in secession by seeking to create a South Central gov't. Let me ask you: when will reer S West take a stand, be counted, and be written into the annuls of history? It is not the 1st, the 2nd or the 3rd time a rogue leader tried to hijack or dismantle the national platform to serve own short-term interest, and advance ill-advised, clan-centric politics. It is a known malady, and its cure is readily at hand. Very soon you will see HSM bellowing and wailing in the streets of Xamar when another leader has been (s)elected, and all his doodles had been reversed with the State back on track.
  7. This was the most I ever listened to a vacuous politician. My brain now aches in dire need of elan. Trouble with ciyaal al Kacaan is you all think the country is Xamar, and Xamar is the country. Why not ride a bus to Baydhaba, travel through Sh Hoose, trot to Kismayo through Baardheere, and tell us what you see. O' you can not, yet here you are parroting the usual blather about the city State akin to a stable full of asphyxiated flora and fauna with Mr Jones no longer able to attend to their resuscitation. In this instance, it is as if you are a "baqal la dhufaanay' attempting a canter behind "dameer asqaysan", then I ask of you: what are those right-thinking souls amongst us to do? In the Somali tradition, elders practise 'gar naqsi' on their own prior to presenting their case to the 'xeer beegti' under the tree. HSM lacks, and is void of that, and is a classic munaafaq, who says one thing, and does the opposite. This ahbal wants to sweet-talk the nation into a dictatorship, and we may as well be blindly led by Hinda Culusow and Shihan Xasan Sh. Let us reflect upon his utterings: a) The most damaging of all: He went from " 'Ethiopia dhul nagama haysato' replaced with 'Dhul Ethiopia ayaan qaar goosaynaynaa ma aannaan dhihin' ". Let that sink in and ruminate. b) Constitution: The audacity of the man from "Loo joojin maa! " to "begging and pleading from the mosque ". He now argues "war yaanan degdegin", a few months ago, he was saying "waqti ma hadhin, immisaa la sugaa". Here is a sample of the Constitutional re-drafting he is engaged in. Do you still think his intentions are honourable? i) Af iyo dhego aan is maqal: in one sentence, he argues for a shift by rummaging through "redrafting the Constitution" without consensus, inclusivity, and representation, yet in the next sentence, he makes the case as to the reasons THAT only leads to failure. As MMA quite rightly diagnoses, the man suffers from hypomania disorder. ii) Best example is where he says let us NOT bypass agreed upon political contract, consensus-based constitution and treaties, yet he is the first to have unilaterally violated the ONLY agreed upon political contract in 50 years. iii) Another clear example of munaafaqnimo is where he says "aan wada hadallo", yet rejects negotiations, the open platform afforded him, and with the leadership granted to him. c) He argues "Hub waxaan u sidannaa keliya khawaarijta", yet does not realise sabotaging development projects is far more egregious than firing bullets. FGS has been withholding funds for developments projects, or refusing to sign paperwork for projects in PL incl. the Garacad - Galkacyo - Galdobgob, modernising electric grid, water purification projects just to name a few. If he had the ability to wage a war, he would have done so, but he does not, and the only weapon he could fight with is sabotaging development and progress. He financed stringers to disrupt local district elections. The same would apply to any other FMS just as his predecessor had done to JL, he tried against SL in shutting down international flights, to name a few. d) Now, he claims to have implemented federalism in the country. Could someone remind him of the drudgery in laying down the pipelines and the political capital expended in instituting Federalism whilst he was still an unknown Macawisle sporting sandals in suuq Bacaad, and how he was forced to accept JL as a State whilst he was wailing at the alter moving the entire FGS to prevent it from becoming one. Let us also remind him of his sabotaging of the SSC Khatumo movement in becoming a State, and backstabbing it in ridding itself of the SL militias. e) Elections: could he hold elections in 24 months? - If so, in which districts? Here are the regions and a list of districts aligned with the Fed. gov't. 1. Koonfur Mudug*: 2 degmo Hobyo Xarardheere 2. Galgaduud: 7 degmo Dhuusamareeb Ceelbuur Ceeldheer Cadaado Cabuudwaaq Gal hareeri Balanbale 3. Hiiraan: 5 degmo Beladweyn Buulo burte Jalalaqsi Matabaan Maxaas 4.

Shabeellaha Hoose: 9 degmo Marka Afgooye Wanleweyn Qoryooley Baraawe Sablaale Kurtun-waareey Dajuuma Aw-dheegle 6. Jubbada Dhexe: 3 degmo Bu’aale Jilib Saakoow 7. Jubabada Hoose: 5 degmo Kismaayo Jamaame Afmadow Badhaadhe Xagar 8. Baay 5 degmo Baydhabo Buur xakaba Diinsoor Qansax dheere Berdaale 9. Bakool: 6 degmo Xuddur Tayeegloow Waajid Ceelbarde Yeed Rab dhuurre 10. Gedo: 6 degmo Garbahaarrey Luuq Baardheere Beladxaawo Dooloow Ceelwaa 11. Banaadir: 16 degmo f) Al Shabaab: Against wise counsel, where he was advised not to wage a war, but embrace engagement strategy, he chose otherwise; besides the pantomine costumes and empty rhetoric, and with AS's leadership still in Xamar, could he defeat AS? Latest intel indicates AS is [the] most armed, capable force in the country, and is stronger now than it were 2 years ago. i) He speaks of AS hiding and the FGS seeking them out, and what he does not understand is AS's manoeuvring is a strategy; question is what is his strategy? Where are the army generals, military tacticians, strategists, planners, and leaders? He is none of the above, yet wants to assume the role of all. g) PL / SL: Northern polities in the N East (pro-federalist) and N West (secessionist leaning towards Confederalist), as imperfect as they are, do lead regional politics, and have shown political maturity, stability, and conviction unlike the green FMSs in the deep South, which are gradually progressing whilst still beholden to the injurious Xamar-centric, centralist agenda. For the FMSs, this is temporary, a marriage of convenience, case in point both JL & SW are adrift, and divergent with the coming 12 months ushering in a new dawn of politicking. Both are poised to break away to full autonomy in coming years, for doing so benefits them directly, and the nation indirectly. The more politically and financially independent FMSs become, the less influence Xamar has over States. The same shall apply to GM & HS. The Garacad - Tuurdibi trade route 'ween PL and DDS has been an ongoing project, in the works for years, starting under Gaas, to boost the local economy. A good example, fruits and veggies consumed in PL now come from DDS (reason potato and tomato is cheaper in Galkacyo than in Xamar), and in return reason reer SG are now sea food aficionados, with export to DDS on steady uptick and revenue stream for the locals on either side of fence. Do you still think PL is in the wrong? If so, tell us why and how?
  8. Both games ended in draw. Arsenal vs Bayern M - score 2:2 R Madrid vs Man City - score 3:3 You forget I used to play, was a very good striker, and known in East London.
  9. Both English teams took the lead in the first 10 minutes, and are now trailing.
  10. Quarterfinals: Arsenal vs Bayern M - score 1:2 R Madrid vs Man City - score 2:1
  11. Al-Shabab terrorist group launched 11 mortar attacks in different parts of Mogadishu tonight. These attacks came days after the firing of the National Intelligence & Security Agency director Mahad Mohamed Salad. He has been accused of aiding Al-Shabab in the past as he facilitated such mortar attacks in the past. The presidential palace & Aden Adde International Airport were hit. The international airlines like Turkish Airlines & Ethiopian Airlines have stopped flights to Mogadishu for tomorrow! ------------------------------------- This was the UAE comments to the UNSC, Jun. 2023.

  12. Agreed, yet His natural allies are A Madoobe, the consummate dud and on his way out, and Laftagareen, a hostage in Baydhaba as he said as much in Garowe. Surprisingly, Laftagareen speaks well with a good command of af Somali, and knows how to work the crowd, unlike MMA, who is woeful in af Somali, ya khasarah. h
