  1. ^^ good stuff. The British SAS should train a Somali SAS.
  2. Thursday, July 26, 2012 The UK has established a small military presence in Somalia, the British Ministry of Defence has confirmed. A team of 10 military advisers is based at the headquarters of the African Union force in the capital, Mogadishu. They do not have a combat role; their job is to help the AU with planning, communications and medical support. But a BBC correspondent says some of the advisers have been seen in Afgoye, a strategic town west of the capital recently taken from Islamist militants. The al-Shabab group, which joined al-Qaeda earlier this year, still controls many rural areas in southern and central Somalia but is under pressure on several fronts. The country has been without a functioning central authority since 1991 and has been wracked by fighting ever since - a situation that has allowed piracy and lawlessness to flourish. Key moment "We have sent a small team of advisers to assist the AU peacekeeping mission. They do not have a combat role," an MoD spokesman said in a statement. BBC world affairs correspondent Peter Biles says the confirmation of a British military presence in Somalia comes at a key moment in the efforts towards a political transition. The UN-backed interim government is supposed to hand over to a new administration by 20 August when a new president and parliament will be elected. Our correspondent says it is hoped that this will end the corruption and misappropriation of funds that have tarnished the reputation of the current Somali authorities. Ethiopian troops, pro-government militias and the African Union force - which has US and European funding and was boosted earlier this year to nearly 18,000 - have helped the transitional government recently expand its control outside Mogadishu. In the last few months, the militants have lost several key positions, including Afgoye, Baidoa in central Somalia and the southern town of Afmadow.

  4. Nothing shallow about the list but you don't have to be on your deathbed to have these regrets.
  5. ^^ if you're really interested then you should research these questions in a library. They are deep questions and you won't find the answers in this forum.
  6. I get why the guy had to travel. From 2009 to '11 if was safer be in the air than the Presidential Palace. The guy probably needed few nights of peace every three days.

Somalia has 20k square miles of arable land that it doesn't farm, nearly 3000k of sea front that it doesn't fish and plenty of unconfined aquifer across the nation for irrigation and to water animals. Blaming God is not only disingenuous but it's foolish too. I thought nothing happened without your god willing it? Besides, were the earth-quacks in Haiti and other parts of the world man made? The 2006 tsunami? I'm just asking.

That's the Devine balance between the "haves" and "have-nots". We should know better than the ones who believe in the survival of the fattest malarkey. It would make much more sense for your smart friend to create a fair and equal world but he hasn't done that and he expects his minions to repair the cracks, which would be fine if those minions had an inbuilt sense of justice and fairness but that's not the case.If this was a graded project your friend would get an an F for the (lack of) effort..
  12. I don't know if I would take a bullet for a girlfriend; a wife, maybe.

You are only in a plain error." The Noble Qur'an Surat 36 (Ya-Sin Ayat 47) That's just the problem, some have been provided with nothing at all while others have too much. This is what makes the sheikh cry (I think).
