US helps Somali commando force grow from battalion to brigade

image.jpg

STUTTGART, Germany — U.S. Africa Command is aiding the buildup of a specialized commando brigade in Somalia that has emerged as a key force in the fight to reclaim territory held by al-Qaida-aligned insurgents.

During a visit to Somalia this week by AFRICOM’s Gen. Thomas Waldhauser, talks with the country’s leadership centered on the progress of Somalia’s Danab (Lightning) Advanced Infantry Brigade, a military statement said.

“We’ve learned the importance of factoring in cultural and region-specific considerations,” Waldhauser said in the statement. “We work closely with our Somali partners ensuring the composition of specific Danab companies is appropriate for the security sector where they’ll be employed.”

When training of Danab commando units began several years ago, planners originally conceived a battalion-sized element. The effort has now expanded with a plan to build a 3,000-troop brigade spread out across six Somalia army sectors, according to AFRICOM.

A Danab brigade headquarters operates about 70 miles north of Mogadishu at Camp Baledogle, where the U.S. military is expanding an airfield for operations. AFRICOM declined to detail the current troop level of the Danab forces or a timeline for when the brigade would be at full strength, citing force protection concerns.

For AFRICOM, one of the challenges in Somalia — a clan-based society without a history of a functioning central government — is ensuring the security forces it trains are comprised of appropriate clan groups.

“For example, it would be unwise to take a force from Jubaland and send them to Puntland to conduct operations as they may be seen as outsiders, which would not maximize effectiveness,” said Maj. Karl Wiest, an AFRICOM spokesman.

Because AFRICOM’s Somali partners have prioritized “ensuring the right people are placed in the right sector, the Danab are largely perceived as effective and clan-neutral by the Somali people,” Wiest said.

During the past two years, the commandos have fought to retake territory from al-Shabab, a militant group that for more than a decade has vied for control in Somalia. The Danab commandos, along with other parts of the Somali military and an international force known as the African Union Mission in Somalia, “continue to make incursions into territory previously held by al-Shabab,” AFRICOM said.

The U.S. says the military effort is part of a broader approach focused on getting the Somali central government to more effectively deliver services, but the strategy faces complications since Somalia consistently ranks as one of the world’s most corrupt countries. Security analysts also have long cautioned that Somali society has a history of resisting outside attempts to impose Western-style order.

Al-Shabab also has proven resilient. During the past three years, the U.S. has steadily intensified military operations in the country, with special operations troops serving as combat advisers.

Somali forces have recently set up multiple combat outposts in the Lower Juba River Valley — a region that is frequently targeted by U.S. airstrikes — where they pushed Shabab fighters out of former strongholds. AFRICOM said about 1,000 previously displaced families have returned to their homes since 2017 as a result of the offensive.

“We have seen incremental progress in Somalia,” Waldhauser said. “Our partners must continue to make progress in order to maintain positive momentum and maintain the hard-earned confidence of the Somali people.”

The Pentagon says the U.S. now has about 500 troops in Somalia, where the pace of airstrikes has been escalating. Since 2017, AFRICOM has launched more than 100 airstrikes in Somalia, killing over 800 militants.

The U.S. offensive is driven by concerns that if al-Shabab asserts more control in Somalia, the country could become a hub for jihadis and Western interests in the region might be threatened. Also, the AU Mission in Somalia is scheduled to withdraw from the country next year.

The AU contingent has been instrumental in keeping al-Shabab at bay, and it is not yet clear whether Somali forces will be able to hold on to battlefield gains of recent years.

“Somalia is critical to the security situation and the long-term stability of East Africa,” Waldhauser said.

However, the stepped-up military campaign is drawing more scrutiny and calling into question an AFRICOM assertion that no civilians have been killed in any of its airstrikes.

On Wednesday, Amnesty International released a report that said AFRICOM’s claims are false and that at least 14 civilians have died in five strikes analyzed by the watchdog group.

“Military operations by Somali government, allied militia and foreign troops including (the African Union) and the US military against Al-Shabaab, continue to have a devastating effect on civilians,” Amnesty said in its report.

AFRICOM denied the allegations.

“It is in the interest of the terrorist group al-Shabaab to untruthfully claim civilian casualties,” AFRICOM said in response to the Amnesty report. “It is also in the interest of al-Shabaab to coerce community members to make untrue claims.”

How typical. Why? Well it seems that the wretchedness of these Villa Somalia's groupies have no idea of how contemptible they look in the cold light of the day.

After all, the dead of this morning's carnage in Mogadishu haven't been buried so far. And yet they are out with new "talking points" about how the US is helping to turn out another patch of commandos for Somalia. As if any of the last decade of effort in which AMISOM, Turkey, UK, and US, who collectively and individually, helped to turn out soldiers in their thousands for Somalia, have done anything remotely to defeat the likes of Al-Shabaab of this world.

Sometimes you wonder why Somalia is such state of deep "dishonor" and a repeat on a loop of "failed Status", then you realize because their passably literate folks are more concern with "empty slogans", with Public Relation (PR) missives, with all manner of fleeting "good publicity", as opposed to actually addressing why their weak and vulnerable population are dying with endless bombs being used to kill them, at least on any passing week.

Whilst at the same time, when all of that is going on, it seems, that, their alleged government in Villa Somalia are only interesting in "stuffing-its-pockets" with any financial loot that is being handed-over and being pass-about to Somalia as way for her to re-build her failed State.

International partners laud reforms in Somalia's security sector

MOGADISHU, March 26 (Xinhua) -- The international partners on Tuesday welcomed reforms in Somalia's security sector to help flush out the al-Shabab militant group.

The partners from the United Nations, African Union, European Union, Britain, and the United States welcomed the initiative by Prime Minister Hassan Ali Khaire to brief them on reforms in the security sector and the government's plans to continue to improve security.

"We believe the full implementation of these reforms will contribute to stability and prosperity for the Somali people and the wider region," the partners said in a joint statement issued in Mogadishu.

They called on the stakeholders to support and coordinate collective efforts to help the government and people of Somalia achieve security, economic and political reforms through an inclusive dialogue process.

"We are encouraged by the determination of the Federal Government of Somalia to implement necessary security, economic and political reforms, and we underline our support for this work," they said.

The partners said they looked forward to the important decisions in the context of continued support to African Union Mission in Somalia as it transfers security responsibilities to Somali-owned security.

The AU mission is supporting the transition through the priority tasks including securing main supply routes, securing key population centers, mentor and assist Somali security forces, both military and police, in close collaboration with UN Assistance Mission in Somalia.

Tallaabo   

@MMA

I remember the international partners welcoming such "reforms" and "progress" five years ago, ten years ago, fifteen years ago, and so on. I guess the more things change in Koonfuria, the more they remain the same.

Talaabo, I also remember the elusive never-coming dream of aqoonsi that was expected to arrive in 1991, in 1996, in 2001, in 2006, in 2011, in 2016, in 2019, in 20... War lee maa wadeynaa.

Ilmihii dhashay 1991 waa aabayaal, awoowe ku socdo and some wretched secessionists are still marqaan-dreaming of this in their deep daily marqaamid sessions

At least beesha caalamka Soomaaliya oo dhan wey aqoonsantahay and is engaging her government, but Muuse Muqayil iyo xulafadiisa in a dusty mundul yaa aqoonsan?

Hello Folks,

I am sure that our Mr Tallaabo would so easily have no difficulty in "disposing" of this silly argument that is comparing Somalia, a perennially failed state with terrorism at the heart of its precarious existence on one hand. And that of Somaliland on the other hand. If that is Mr Tallaabo, had seen fit enough to dignified such challenge.

But given that some may be in danger of believing their own absurdity, it’s best that a silence must not be what one deal with these sort of illiterate cretins we have in here. In particularly those who actually believe that Somalia has something to shout about and Somaliland don’t.

So in that spirit, and with due apologies to my dear friend, Mr Tallaabo, specifically in hijacking away what naturally would have been his place to respond to, in which I am sure of it he would have been good enough at it to deliver it in his own unique wittering ways of it, let me instead response on his behalf and say the following:

1- Somalia may have been given a recognition of its Statehood, which was largely to do with the need for Somalia to be "contained" as a security threat to others. In particularly, it was given to her so that the international community (IC) can have a fig-leaf to run its "indirect stealth Trusteeship" over Somalia.

Why?

2- Because if you don’t do that way of "ruling" Somalia, then you would have to do the old fashion way of actually “colonizing” her so that she will not be a threat to others.

But now when the IC gave Somalia a “legal fig-leaf” that says Somalia is a sovereign State at the UN, or she is a legitimate government at the UN, whilst, in effect, the same IC is using a multiple UNSC’s resolutions and African’s hired mercenaries to govern her, it essentially means the same IC is "colonizing" her in-order to ensure she is not a threat to anyone else.

It’s the same “politico-legal-model” that any failed Muslim States are being governed with since 2001. And it’s the same approach with Afghanistan, where government there is allegedly a legitimate government when it fact Afghanistan is under an old Colonial system, which in turn is comprising of Western's forces, who in effect rules that unfortunate country.

Hence, Somalia, apart from a failed status, and its legion of warlord-ism chapter of previous era, as well as its current condition of being an African’s colonized satrap of a state, has a legally recognize State of convenience. And of course, nothing else other than inability to even secure the road that passes in the middle of Mogadishu, as today’s tragic bomb going off in that road amply demonstrate it.

3- Now whilst all of that was happening in Somalia since 1991, Somaliland on the other hand, has achieved a tremendous effort of State-building, a constitution, a proper State with its elected presidents across time and across her land (5 president in which three came to power through the ballot). Also we in Somaliland have build the most effective State in anywhere within the former boundaries of the old Somali Republic.

Hence, the fact that Somaliland doesn’t have yet its recognition is no way diminishes what she has achieved so far, which in turn is a light years away to what Somalia is going through and has been going through since 1991. Even if you add the fact that Somalia has alleged legitimate government that in turn can not secure its own governmental's offices.

So the question (that seriously begs to posed) is what did Somalia have achieved even with the recognition of its government that could give her a "telling advantage" on her side of ledger in which Somalia has it now, and Somaliland, in material sense, is currently deprived of?

In fact, I would rather be unrecognized state (such as the current case of Somaliland) with all that limitation of legality which result from that than have a fig-leaf of a “recognized State” whereby in substance sense and in a material sense you will be a “colonized State” of the kind Somalia is at the moment.

But that is the difference, you see.

Why?

Well, I look (and I am sure it’s also true for our Mr Tallaabo) for the "substance of the reality". Whilst on the other hand, some are “contend” to look upon the surface level of things, the facade of glitter of the headlines, without the understanding that others have taken them for a ride (and in effect rules them through UNSC’s resolutions) even if at the same time they have given them some sort of a "legal name" call a “recognized government” for their own conniving interests.

That is the difference.

😁 It looks like you have read my mind!! As you have noticed, I couldn't be bothered to challenge such a ridiculous argument.
