Truly, there is nothing that was not destroyed or looted but this one is absolutely horrifying. Somalia had two seed banks and they were both looted.

It's an article you have to pay to see but here is a snippet of the shameful looting;



SOMALIA'S SEED BANKS HAVE BEEN LOOTED WASHINGTON POST


30 Jan 1993 - Somalia's two seed banks, facilities that stored samples of hundreds of varieties of food crops adapted to the country's soils and climate were looted.......

USC should never be referred to as a political group. A political group has objectives and would fill the power vacuum and rule but these people turned it into a looting and raping extravaganza that has still not ended.



USC = the reason the "68 IQ" insult was invented, they have shamed the Somali name for eternity.

Thank these men for the humiliating and sickening crimes we will share below;

SOMALI SEED BANKS HAVE BEEN LOOTED




By Boyce Rensberger
January 30, 1993

Somalia's two seed banks, facilities that stored samples of hundreds of varieties of food crops adapted to the country's soils and climates, were looted within the last three or four months and now stand empty, an international agricultural official said yesterday.

Because many starving farmers long ago ate seed they normally would save for their next planting, said Geoffrey C. Hawtin, director general of the International Board for Plant Genetic Resources, efforts are underway to produce new seed from samples of Somali varieties stored in other countries.

Seeds of sorghum and corn, the country's two main crops, are being sought from seed banks as far away as the United States and Russia and in neighboring Kenya.

Because seed banks hold only a few ounces of seed of any given variety, the samples must be planted, harvested and replanted to build up quantities needed to supply Somali farmers. Hawtin estimated that it would take one to two years to meet the need.

In the meantime, he said, many Somali farmers must use seed of varieties optimally suited to growing in other places.

They may grow well or poorly in Somalia's soils or fall prey to pests to which local varieties were resistant.

Hawtin made his announcement here at a symposium on world food problems sponsored by the International Food Policy Research Institute.

Loss of seed does not affect all Somali farmers, Hawtin said. In some parts of the country, crops of sorghum and corn are in the field and, with the large supplies of imported food, it should be possible to save seed from domestic varieties now growing.

Fields in much of the country, however, lie fallow, unplanted because of lack of seed.

The few local varieties growing are not necessarily suited to other soils and climatic zones in Somalia. Farmers in those places, Hawtin said, must resort to imported "seed of unknown potential."

One Somali seed bank was operated by the Somalia Ministry of Agriculture at a research substation in Afgoi, and the other was a U.S.-funded facility in Baidoa in the middle of one of the worst-hit famine zones and one of the first towns "liberated" by U.S. Marines.

Hawtin said that it is not known exactly when the banks were looted but that it is thought to have happened within the last three or four months, after staffs abandoned the storage facilities.

Fortunately, he said, in 1989 a duplicate set of about 300 varieties of sorghum and corn were taken out of the country for safekeeping in the Kenya Genebank.

But because those samples amount to no more than about three ounces of seed for each variety, it will take time to produce large quantities of seed.

@Farm Good idea.

They stole houses, land, copper, metal, destroyed official documents, looted the banks and all the money, gold and jewels, that was left in the capital city. They then turned into "businessmen" that moved to Nairobi, Dubai etc or they stayed behind and opened up shop in the Bakaara Markets.

What happened to all the orphanages? I wouldn't be surprised if they also sold human beings, children, babies etc.. and their organs.

Amnesty International Report on the civil war crimes of the USC.

Aideed and his henchmen were not just seeking power, they operated like a bloodthirsty cult and committed crimes not heard or seen before in the Somali peninsula.


Don't read if you are sensitive.




"Many people had fled from Bulohawo before Aideed's forces came. Those remaining there were mostly old men, women and children, those who were not strong enough to attempt to run away.

They gathered people in the town centre, going round all the houses, and separated people by clan, marking out the D----s - M--------N, M----H---N and O----Gs.

Their own people - H------s - they left alone. D-----d men and children they killed, D-----d women they raped and often killed too. Those that tried to escape or looked as if they might escape were shot.

The weaker ones were bayonetted. The bodies were burnt with kerosene and firewood and the bones left lying there. They stole all their property, and took the iron-sheet roofs off houses and shops to sell across the border.

Mud-and-wattle houses were just burnt down. "The killings went on for all the time Aideed held the town - a month and three days. The worst killings were in the first few days, when people were killed in groups of 30 or 40. "I saw people with their tongues cut out, their arms or legs cut off, and left to die. Children and old men were thrown into oil drums full of a mixture of boiling oil, water and salt.

Women were raped by as many as 20 or 30 men, then bayonetted in the vagina or their stomachs cut open. Small girls were bayonetted in the vagina and pregnant women had their stomachs slit open - even women of their own H------e clan if they were pregnant by a D----D man"

Somalia's SEEDS are stored in KENYA for safekeeping!! Not only did the wildlife flee to Kenya, even our seeds are there. :jcoleno:

An Agence France Presse broadcast monitored by the British Broadcasting Corporation quotes a representative of the Salvation Democratic Front as accusing "the H-dominated U.S.C. of massacring members of Maj-Gen Siyad Barreh's M people in Mogadishu

Of course we were looking out for them....

"In January 1991, as forces loyal to Siad Barre fled Mogadishu, they moved through the Bay and Juba regions, Somalia's richest farming areas. Aideed-led forces pursued them and, for months, this fertile area was the scene of repeated sweeps and occupations by both forces. The sequence took a heavy toll on civilians as the warring factions looted food stored in underground silos, stole or killed livestock, ruined wells, raped women of various clans, and killed men of opposing clans to prevent them from taking up arms. These attacks on civilians so thoroughly disrupted production and distribution of food that, far more than the drought, they are responsible for the famine in Somalia."

SSDF should never have helped the dictator but we were dealing with wild hordes of looters and rapists so maybe they had no choice.
 
Somali gunmen storm and loot UN relief ship

MOGADISHU - Marauding Somali fighters stripped a United Nations relief ship of fuel oil and stole 200 tons of food aid destined for the starving east African country, a senior UN source in Nairobi said yesterday.

He said fighters from one of Somalia's numerous warring clans drove heavily armed jeeps into the port at the southern town of Kismayu and forced their way on to the Danish ship Sea Pearl, which was unloading UN grain. The ship was carrying 3,000 tons of sorghum from the UN's World Food Programme (WFP), destined to ease famine in the heavily populated south of the country, and fuel for trucks to transport it.


Gunmen and looters blocked food convoys to thousands of dying people yesterday as Somalia awaited the arrival of armed UN guards. Trucks from the north of Mogadishu were ambushed crossing the capital's 'Green Line' divide between the forces of the self-styled president, Ali Mahdi Mohamed, and those of General Mohamed Farah Aideed, preventing the UN's WFP from moving any food out of the port.

UN sources said three people were killed in battles between gangs over the food shipments reaching Mogadishu. The looting came as international efforts to save Somalia's population gathered momentum: a second UN aircraft carrying 17 tons of food arrived in Baidoa yesterday and it was announced that a US military team was on its way to Mombasa, Kenya, to set up other supply routes.

A US embassy spokesman in Nairobi said airlifts could start as early as 24 August following a White House announcement on Friday that Washington would send 145,000 tons of extra food.

In London, the minister for overseas development, Lady Chalker, announced yesterday that Britain would send an additional pounds 18m of aid to Somalia. This emergency aid will add to the pounds 23m already earmarked by the Government following an earlier appeal for assistance to the east African nation.


Two ships were unloading wheat, beans and rice in Mogadishu. But relief workers were unable to say when the food might reach the people who need it. An estimated 4.5 million people are in danger of starving in Somalia, which collapsed into anarchy after the overthrow of Mohamed Siad Barre in January 1991.

Aid workers say the UN's priority must be to take control of Mogadishu port and ensure food reaches the starving. Brigadier-General Imtiaz Shaheen, who heads a team of 50 UN ceasefire monitors, said he was working on final preparations for the arrival of 500 armed UN security guards. He was unable to give a date for the guards' arrival.

Sadly even in recent times things still haven’t changed.

This German nurse was unfortunately looted in Mogadishu.



 
UN compounds and Darod homes (homes granted as a result of Booli Qaran) were a Ghaniima (war booty) so it's fair game for all. :manny:

I recently read an article by a Warsangeli Minister of the late 80s who jokingly asked his Abgaal neighbours why were they letting the Marehan build houses in Xamar and they said "ha iska dhistaane, anagaa u hari doonee waa goofkayagii" :drakekidding:
