Hybrid

Death Awaits You
The US led military operation known as "Operation restore hope" which join a multinational force "UNITAF" saved 100,000 people from starvation.

Internations are bad m'kay.

They've prolonged the civil war by preventing a single clear winner.

Sure there might have been a lot more deaths (sounds crass but war is shitty) but I'm sure an alliance of some warlords could've won within a year or so.

Instead foreigners made sure to continue the balance between the different factions thought their "reconciliation" efforts that went on until 2006.

It's like taking painkillers to deal with a splinter instead of taking it out.

If Amison or some other foreign force wasn't protecting Xamar an ambitious state President could consolidate a huge chunk of Somalia instantly leading to the start of unification.

The militias were targeting people who were trying to get away from them! The militias stole food from the people it was meant for!

Do you support the intervention like I do? There many scumbags during the Somali civil war but Aideed was the biggest one!
And if he wasn’t there we still would’ve been occupied like in Iraq by 100,000+ us army who would’ve stolen our oil and shit:manny:
Alxabdulilah now Somalia is recovering from that shit.

Saved kulaha the reason they were there was because said barre told them to f*ck off about a oil deal we ConocoPhillips oil company, they said they would have all the oil and nothing for Somalia and he said f*ck out of Somalia and a year later they instigated war between the clans and when said barre was kicked out they got tried to do us like they did Iraq, occupy and let their oil companies steal the oil.

What is keeping them away was warlords, Al-Shabaab and clan militias. I’m not said all these people are good but they happen to stop foreign oil companies away from somalia like how ONLF is keeping them away from Somali galbeed oil fields.

If there was no intervention there wouldn't be any free food to steal.

In those bandits minds was probably: if we don't take them the other militias/bandits will.

All that chaos was perpetrated because of foreigners muddying the waters.

The clan elders if given the chance; would've arranged talks to prevent bandits like them roaming around.

We've been warring for thousands of years but never was it so chaotic as this civil war.

The biggest difference between previous wars and the last one was the intervention, arms embargo and behind the scenes meddling.

Think about it; who funded these rebel groups in the first place?

It was all planned chaos.

The US would’ve never occupied Somalia though.
kkkkkk stop watching the movies about U.S army stories where they give kids candy but in reality rape kids:mjlol:
kulaha they would've never occupied Somalia. the reason they were there because of oil deal where dictator siad barre told them to f*ck off. The U.S army was deployed there to provide security for their oil company.
 
Do you really think the US had good intentions for Somalis with this 'intervention' when it was them who backed Siad when he attacked the north? It was more of a public relation operation for the pentagon. The worst crisis was over - fighting had already subsided and the brutal famine was pretty much over by the time they arrived. Numerous international aid organizations like the red cross were already getting most of their aid through with little interference from clan forces. The country was in the process of reconstituting. It wasn't the first time they stood in the way of countries under the guise of humanitarian assistance and 'nation-building'.

Al Shabab would capture the country if not for foreign forces.

If no one intervened in 2006 we would have had a government by now instead of Al Shabaab.

If AMISON leaves tomorrow then Al Shabaab might take over Xamar for a couple months but one of the other factions will quickly kick them out and setup a functioning government.

Civil wars are meant to end with a victor and until then we'd either be led by foreign puppets or live in a controlled chaos.

The intervention in 2006 was against the Islamic Courts Union. After they were defeated by the US backed Ethiopian intervention, Al Shabab came to power and eventually took control of the country. Nobody defeated them for years. A clan militia can not fight against an organised terrorist group, and even AMISOM are struggling to push them back after 10 whole years.

If Al Shabab take control of Somalia again, then only foreign forces would be able to defeat them. Just look at ISIS in Iraq, it took over a hundred thousands ground troops and an international coalition burning Mosul to the ground to defeat them (and they still hardly did)

Before Iraqi forces liberated Mosul from Daesh:


After:



Toughest and most deadliest battle since WW2.

You really think Al Shabaab is a local group?

Some of their foot soldiers and media figures might be Somali but I doubt the real backers have any good intentions for Somalia hence my belief that they aren't one of us.

Doesn’t matter whether they are a local group or not. What matters is that disfranchised clans and groups support them over the government, meaning they have local support. Until a Raxanweyn prefers Hawiye ruling them over a terrorist organisation where they can in fact dominate, nothing will change.
