He's speaking the truth, hate America all you want, but the people all ran to the airport to go to America. The actions speak volumes. If al shabaab were to takeover the south, you'd have the masses packing for Kenya and Ethiopia.
Election problems made things difficult but alshabab is definitely not what it was a few years agoAl-shabaab is much weaker then Taliban and behaves much more like a mafia then a terrorist organisation. There is no comparison between them
Only reason why Al-shaab still exist is due to the weakness of somali people and the government. There is no will to defeat Al kebab. How many soldiers has Turkey trained, how many special forces we have that are more superior to their forces. What are they doing. Nothing at all.
At the moment there is no active pushback against Al-shabaab. Its like the government and the people tolerate them. No matter how much they take, kill and harm somalis, they just accept it. The government is a joke.
This is why we need Amisom out, it will force Somalis to react against them. No more foreign help
