Sep 11, 2009
By Sara A. Carter and Raza Khan THE WASHINGTON TIMES

While Osama bin Laden and his No. 2, Ayman al-Zawahiri, are believed to remain in a tribal redoubt along the Afghan-Pakistani border, midlevel al Qaeda leaders are fanning out, recruiting new middlemen and establishing stronger bases in Somalia and Yemen, U.S. and Pakistani officials say.

The moves reflect growing pressure on al Qaeda from U.S. drone attacks and Pakistani military operations that have killed nine of al Qaeda's top 20 commanders as well as Pakistani Taliban chief Baitullah Mehsud.

A. M. Yusuf | wayeel@operamail.com

Duur looma jabin geesigii dirirta waynaaye
Kun kaloo ciyaar lagu dilay iyo dawgal baa jiray
Oon deer deero u hardiyin sida dugaaggiiye...
Wax badan baa karbaash lagu dirqiyey duq iyo wiilkiine
Nin garkii camuud loo daray oo dabada loo xayday
Oo ulo dubka iyo jiirka suga lagu daliigaayo
Oo kuman dadkiisii ahaa daawasho u joogto
Oo aan la diirine farxaan lala dareeraayo
Waa dabac idiin gooniya oon duulna waafaqin

USA Third way Option for Somalia is a False One!

Jan 20, 2008
By Prof Amina Mire

Victory is near but with victory there is all too real potential that it could be stolen and that more misery could be ahead for our nation and people. The greatest danger at present facing our nation is the occupation forces of Meles Zinawi, the criminal warlords and the USA. Today, these are clearly marked existential enemies of Somalia.

Towards a future US-Somalia Strategic Partnership: is 2008 the year?

Jan 17, 2008
The Ethiopian occupation genocide has collapsed irretrievably onto itself in Somalia. The Resistance grows every day in lethality and mass appeal. Consequently, what is taking place now UN diplomatic circles and European capitals (as well as in Saudi Arabia) is largely a byproduct of and driven by a realistic US policy reassessment of the failed Ethiopian occupation of Somalia. Giving up on the Ethiopian regime it brought into Somalia 2006, the US in 2008 is moving towards securing its own vital strategic interests in Somalia through dialogue

Ahmed Dirie: The Somali Nelson Mandela

Jan 13, 2008
Despite Ahmed Dirie’s brief public service history, he accomplished what few other man achieved in all civilizations. Ahmed Dirie revived the ever diminish Somali-esteem and pride by standing up against a brutal enemy with unfettered support from the only supper power, United States of America. At first glance, Ahmed Dirie seemed a very fragile and naïve individual as he was not a heavy build/muscular and highly educated man.

A people betrayed

Dec 31, 2007
By Meera Selva The Guardian
The cynicism of the cabal around President Kibaki is breathtaking: they knew the consequences of stealing the election. These were meant to be Kenya's golden days. A booming economy, a mobile phone for every man, woman and child, a robust and lively press. It is a tragedy for the country and the whole of Africa that a few days after Kenya's elections, curfews are being imposed, gangs of young men are fighting on the streets, security police and storming through slums looking for agitators and disfigured corpses are being discovered around the country. As ever, there is a sense that all this bloodshed could have been averted if only politicians had stepped down when their time has passed.
