Hello Folks,

Meanwhile, whilst these picture of Mr Bolton and Mr Kheyre were taking place outside of the White-House, the US's government have quietly proceeded to continue imposed "sanction" on Somalia. Or it had renewed the same "emergency sanction" that was on Somalia, on the same day Mr Bolton had welcomed Mr Kheyre into the White-House.

This is what is known, the difference between "Policy substance" on one hand, and that of cheap "Igu-Sawir" public-relation futile exercise on the other hand.

In other words, on substance the US still consider Somalia as a failed and a dangerous state that has no effective government on one hand. And on the other hand, they are happy to allow the leadership of that country to take pictures of themselves with them.

Hence, the tragedy is that some folks, still, never seemed to have learned the "art western diplomacy" at all.

For the Western's powers, pictures being taking with their leadership, or meeting you in their offices is almost nothing with them. It's a free thing they are more than willing to dispense to anyone who is "impressed" with pictures with world leaders or with western's policy-makers, as this crew in Villa Somalia are.

But on the other hand, they have experts on each "policy silos" under the sun, which in turn determines how they will deal with you as a country. And two are not one of the same thing.

This means they will smile for you, they will welcome you into their offices. And they will even take pictures with you. But at the end of the day, that is nothing, absolutely nothing with them. For they will still proceed to "establish their policy" on the basis of their interests.

And if the "policy recommendation" is that the leadership of that country are bunch of feckless non-entities who can't run or control their countries, and therefore must be treated with utmost harshness on the "policy implementation" side of things, like the manner of putting "sanction" on Somalia continuously, then they will do it in a heart-beat.

And that will be still the case, regardless of whether you may have had a breakfast, lunch, or even dinner, with them. Or whether you may have taken their pictures with you on the same day in which they will issue the "policy recommendation" in which they will deal with your country with it, henceforth, as the case is in here with Mr Kheyre.

Given that the same day Mr Kheyre met Mr Bolton, the US announced its continuous policy on Somalia, which is essentially the "continuation" of a "well-established sanction" on Somalia, without even so much of a changed coma within that policy, much less said about changing the whole of that old policy in the first place.

Section 202(d) of the National Emergencies Act (50 U.S.C. 1622(d)) provides for the automatic termination of a national emergency unless, within 90 days before the anniversary date of its declaration, the President publishes in the Federal Register and transmits to the Congress a notice stating that the emergency is to continue in effect beyond the anniversary date.  In accordance with this provision, I have sent to the Federal Register for publication the enclosed notice stating that the national emergency declared in Executive Order 13536 of April 12, 2010, with respect to Somalia is to continue in effect beyond April 12, 2019.

The United States is strongly committed to Somalia’s stabilization, and it is important to maintain sanctions against persons undermining its stability.  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.  Therefore, I have determined that it is necessary to continue the national emergency declared in Executive Order 13536 with respect to Somalia.

And by the way the said "national emergency declaration of the Executive Order 13536 of April 12, 2010", which was a "Sanction declaration" issued by that date of April - 12 - 2010, by the then President Obama in effect continues the sanction on Somalia that have started back in 1992.

And moreover, the current White-House occupants, namely, Mr Trump, basically, re-issued, or renewed, that sanction on Somalia started by President Bush Senior in 1992. Renewed, again, by President Clinton in 1990s, and then renewed by President Bush Junior in middle of 2000s. And then renewed by President Obama in 2010. And now in today of 2019, it was yet again, renewed by President Trump.

Hence, talk about an "unbroken record" of a wretched history, going on from 1992 to 2019.

Here is the original "emergency declaration of sanction" by President Obama on Somalia, back in April 12 of 2010.

".......By the authority vested in me as President by the Constitution and the laws of the United States of America, including the International Emergency Economic Powers Act (50 U.S.C. 1701 et seq.) (IEEPA), the National Emergencies Act (50 U.S.C. 1601 et seq.) (NEA), section 5 of the United Nations Participation Act, as amended (22 U.S.C. 287c) (UNPA), and section 301 of title 3, United States Code, 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......."

The old man failed again to read between lines or maybe thinks others will not read. Basically the emergency declaration gives the president to implement his own policy without notification of parliament. This is not an usual the west umpires dealing with third world countries . However it is not sections against Somali rather forieng policy.


The issue here is that the nation of Somali is getting back in many different ways, specialy southern Somalia.  Economic is improving and moqdish is booming. Violence is decreasing and security is improving. The reforms that current Somalia government implemented has been successful. Tax collections and army registrations  are too main area. With that you should not surprised that foreign countries are interesting the  deal with Somalia, a potential and strategic nation.

Failed again, dear stooge. And you have actually failed to comprehend the essence of what this all about, particularly in your haste to defend Villa Somalia, given that you are paid stooge for them.

In other word, the essence of yesterday's re-issued emergency declaration is to duly inform Congress of what the US's executive branch is doing in Somalia in regards or in pursuant to the US's National Security's powers that was delegated to the US's president - or to the executive branch - by US's Congress.

And now the question is what is the policy that is a "continuation" of the previous position in which the US took in regards to Somalia in which furthermore Mr Trump's administration, was, as of yesterday, informing the US's congress about it?

Well, it's a US's long-standing "sanction policy" on arms embargo on Somalia. It's also the right of the executive branch to continue to conduct its endless drone attacks on Somalia.

It's furthermore executive action on Somalia by the administration on "security ground" without US's congress asking for the "invocation" of war's power acts. Given that for the US to continue on its war-footing or on war-engagement on anywhere on the planet earth beyond a set of time, will in turn requires the US's congress to invoke the "war powers act", and therefore the administration would have to seek a "legal authorization" for such action on the basis of the "war act" authorizing means.

Hence, this emergency declaration, or continuation of this policy from Obama Era, which in effect started back in 1992 (at least on the arms embargo side of this declaration started back then), is what essentially Mr Trump's administration have just renewed it yesterday. And did so on an executive basis and on singlehandedly. Whilst at the same time "informing" the Congress about it, as the law as it stands now requires it should do so.

And all of this was done, right in there, as of yesterday, whilst Mr Kheyre was in Washington meeting with the officials of the US's Administration.

Re--read what the declaration that was issue yesterday was all about. Not where it was going, or who it what address to. But the "essence" of what it was carrying and what that was all about. Then you will know how singularly ill-inform you actually happen to be, even if, subsequently, one were to forgive you a bit for being ill-educated paid stooge for the Villa Somalia's clique. Got it now, dear lad?

United States to Partially Restart Programs with Somali National Army

The United States will partially resume the provision of security assistance to non-mentored units of the Somali National Army (SNA).

This resumption will be implemented on a pilot basis with a unit taking part in critical transition operations in Lower Shabelle.  On the basis of internal reforms made by the Federal Government of Somalia and an inspection of the recipient unit, the United States assesses that the Federal Government of Somalia and the SNA have undertaken significant efforts to improve accountability over donor resources.

The United States, in coordination with the Federal Government of Somalia, paused assistance to non-mentored units of the Somali National Army in December 2017.  This resumption of assistance demonstrates our confidence that the FGS and SNA will continue to improve accountability and fight corruption.
