Thumbs down Africa: U.S. Pledges $69 Million in Support of Somalia's New Deal Compact

'At the September 16, 2013 New Deal conference for Somalia, in Brussels, a delegation of U.S. government officials underlined U.S. support for the priorities of Somalia’s New Deal Compact and pledged $69 million to promote and strengthen already existing programs in community stabilization, economic growth, education, and enhancing democracy, governance, and rule of law.

Through this New Deal platform, America’s longstanding commitment to Somalia and the Somali people will continue to deepen. We are committed to working with the Somali people and the Federal Government of Somalia to improve the lives of everyday Somalis, and enhancing our diplomatic and development relationships.

The United States recognizes the significant progress made in Somalia over the past year. This progress would not have taken place were it not for the dedication and commitment of the many members of the Somali community who make a daily decision to focus on a future built on hope and peace, rather than on conflict and despair. We, and the international community, stand with them.'

Only a measly 69 million for one of the poorest countries in the world? It probably takes Helicopter Ben about 10 seconds to print that.

Remind me again how many BILLIONS Israel, one of the worlds richest countries, gets in international aid?

I suspect a lot of this 'aid' that goes to Africa is really a smoke screen the hebes use to distract attention from their parasitical behaviour.

Hopefully in the near future there will be a pledge of 69 million niggers. Whatever shortfall there is in american, canadian, and caribbean island nigger, can be made in other undesirable sub-humans like fags, jews, un-reformable and unrepentant antis and "liberals". They can "celebrate" all the "vibrancy" they want.

Default If you haven't seen the "Nigga 'Custer's last stand'" flyover scenes from Black Hawk Down...

By all means watch the film on something like NetFlix. Believe me: It beats being there. This was yet another U.S. /big business interference with a self-solving problem.

And then there's the History Channel spin by the usual suspects, in which you'll hear one of these "patriotic" young American "heroes" say, "Let the games begin." http://www.history.com/videos/the-tr...blackhawk-down

If you have any attention span and cognitive ability whatsoever, don't miss this on how to explain opposing immigration and such foreign intervention http://www.garretthardinsociety.org/articles/art_lifeboat_ethics_case_against_helping_poor.html

Countries that do are good, good, good.

Countries that opt out and prefer working for their own people's interests, rather than for the interests of international jewish criminals, are bad, bad, bad.

It really is as simple as that.

Default U.S. supporting skinnies in Syria...

... The mission in Somalia was seen by many as a failure.[73] The Clinton administration in particular endured considerable criticism for the operation's outcome. The main elements of the criticism surround the administration's decision to leave the region before completing the operation's humanitarian and security objectives, as well as the perceived failure to recognize the threat Al-Qaida elements posed in the region as well as the threat against U.S. security interests at home.[74] Critics claim that
Osama_bin_Laden Osama_bin_Laden
and other members of Al-Qaida provided support and training to Mohammed Farrah Aidid's forces. Osama bin Laden even denigrated the administration's decision to prematurely depart the region stating that it displayed "the weakness, feebleness and cowardliness of the US soldier".[75]

The loss of U.S. military personnel during the Black Hawk Down operation evoked public outcry. Television images of American soldiers being dragged through the streets by Somalis were too graphic for the American public to endure. The Clinton administration responded by scaling down U.S. humanitarian efforts in the region.[75]

On 26 September 2006, in an interview on Fox News with Chris Wallace, former President Bill Clinton gave his version of events surrounding the mission in Somalia. Clinton defended his exit strategy for U.S. forces and denied that the departure was premature. He said conservative Republicans had pushed him to leave the region before the operation's objectives could be achieved: "...[Conservative Republicans] were all trying to get me to withdraw from Somalia in 1993 the next day after we were involved in 'Black Hawk down,' and I refused to do it and stayed six months and had an orderly transfer to the United Nations."[76]

Clinton's remarks would suggest the U.S. was not deterred from pursuing their humanitarian goals because of the loss of U.S. forces during Black Hawk Down. In the same interview, he stated that, at the time, nobody thought Osama bin Laden and Al-Qaida had anything to do with Black Hawk Down's events. He said the mission was strictly humanitarian.[76]

Fear of a repeat of the events in Somalia shaped U.S. policy in subsequent years, with many commentators identifying the Battle of Mogadishu's graphic consequences as the key reason behind the U.S.'s failure to intervene in later conflicts such as the
Rwandan_Genocide Rwandan_Genocide
of 1994. After the battle, the bodies of several U.S. casualties of the conflict were dragged through Mogadishu's streets by crowds of local civilians and members of Aidid's Somali National Alliance. According to the U.S.'s former deputy special envoy to Somalia, Walter Clarke: "The ghosts of Somalia continue to haunt US policy. Our lack of response in
Rwanda Rwanda
was a fear of getting involved in something like a Somalia all over again."[77]

Links with Al-Qaeda

There have been allegations that
Osama_bin_Laden Osama_bin_Laden
's Al-Qaeda organization was involved in training and funding of Aidid's men. In his 2001 book, Holy War, Inc., CNN reporter
Peter_Bergen Peter_Bergen
interviewed bin Laden who affirmed these allegations. According to Bergen, bin Laden asserted that fighters affiliated with his group were involved in killing U.S. troops in Somalia in 1993, a claim he had made earlier to the Arabic newspaper Al-Quds Al-Arabi. The Al-Qaeda fighters in Somalia are rumored to have included the organization's military chief,
Mohammed_Atef Mohammed_Atef
, later killed by U.S. forces in Afghanistan. Another al-Qaeda operative who was present at the battle was Zachariah al-Tunisi, who allegedly fired an RPG that downed one of the Black Hawk helicopters; he was later killed by an airstrike in Afghanistan in November, 2001.[78]

Aidid's men received some expert guidance in shooting down helicopters from fundamentalist Islamic soldiers, most likely Al-Qaeda, who had experience fighting Russian helicopters during Soviet-Afghan War...[30]

... In March 2013 two survivors from Task Force Ranger returned to Mogadishu with a film crew to shoot a short film BulletProof Faith - Rangers Return to "Black Hawk Down"which will debut in October 2013 on the 20th anniversary of the battle. Author

Default Americans are waking-up to the identity and motivation of those "powerful forces" fronted by Graham, McCain, et al...

Is the Sun Peeking Through the War Clouds?

Friday - September 20, 2013 at 10:08 am
By Patrick J. Buchanan



Prussian Chancellor Otto von Bismarck is sometimes credited with the proverb, “God has a special providence for fools, drunks and the United States of America.”


Observing the unfolding of the Syrian crisis, the Iron Chancellor was an insightful man.


In August, we were hours away from missile strikes on Syria and involvement in its civil war with the possibility that Hezbollah, Iran and Russia would be drawn in.


Seeking a way out of the box into which he gotten himself with his “Assad Must Go!” and “red line” bluster, President Obama announced he was going to Congress to get its backing, before bombing.


This ignited a Middle American uprising against Obama’s war. Then John Kerry said Syria could evade the terrible swift sword of Barack Obama only by surrendering all their chemical weapons within a week.


Vladimir Putin and Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov, watching the United States careening toward a war that Russia no more wanted than did most of Congress, seized upon Kerry’s statement and said: Let us work together to rid Syria of chemical arms.


Obama grabbed the life preserver.


To say the War Party is apoplectic at Obama for blowing this chance to get us into war with Syria, which held real promise of sucking us into a war with Iran, is an understatement.


The worst peace scare in memory is sweeping through the think tanks of Washington.


Conceding the incompetence of how Obama and Kerry got us into this mess, are we not in a far better place than a month ago?


— A U.S. war on Syria has been averted. We are not killing Syrians.
— Assad has conceded he has chemical weapons and has shown a willingness to have inspectors come in and remove it.


— The chilly, almost Cold War-like relations between Obama and Putin have given way to cooperation in getting these chemical weapons chronicled and removed.


— While this disarmament may take years, this is a powerful incentive for America and Russia to bring about a cease-fire, truce or end to this civil-sectarian war that has taken so many thousands of lives.


— There is a rising realization in the United States that the enemy in Syria is not Assad but the al-Qaida fighters and their allies. A victory for the rebels could mean mass martyrdom for Syria’s Christians and the annihilation of the Alawites.


— Hassan Rouhani, the new prime minister of Iran, has gone on U.S. television to declare Iran is not only not building an atom bomb, it will never do so. And he has signaled a willingness to prove it in return for a lifting of sanctions and readmission to the world community.


— A U.S.-Iranian meeting appears possible next week at the U.N., which could lead to direct negotiations over Iran’s nuclear program.
There is always a possibility an incident could turn the United States back toward the bellicosity of August and put the War Party back in the saddle. But there are reasons to be hopeful. And that hope is not based on some naive trust in the truth of what we are being told by our adversaries, but on what their own cold interests dictate.
Take Russia. A U.S. attack on Syria would surely lead to deeper U.S. involvement, the fall of Assad, the loss of her principal ally in the Arab world and her naval base at Latakia, and a loss of prestige at having been proven unable to protect her Syrian ally from the Americans.


A U.S. war on Assad’s regime could also mean a victory for Islamists and their capture of some of Assad’s chemical weapons, which could turn up in the Caucasus just in time for the Sochi Olympics.


Take Iran. She is suffering from the sanctions. Failure to do a deal on her nuclear program carries a rising risk the War Party will get its way and the United States will launch air and missile strikes, leading to a war in the Persian Gulf. No matter the damage this might do to America and the global economy, Iran could be set back decades. A breakup of Iran is possible, as Iraq is breaking up.


And what would an atom bomb do for Iran? The Saudis would acquire one, and the Israelis would put their hundreds on a hair trigger.


If America was not intimidated by thousands of nuclear weapons in Soviet silos and on Soviet submarines, does Tehran think an Iranian bomb is going to frighten the Americans out of the Gulf?


Take Syria. Assad wants to survive and emerge victorious from his civil war. That means no war with the United States. That means meeting the Americans at least halfway.


In short, the United States, Russia, Syria and even Iran have a cold interest in no wider war in Syria. Unfortunately, powerful forces across the Middle East, and right here in River City, believe they have a vital interest in bringing about just such a war.

Default How is this Israeli behavior fundamentally different from the run-up to the Battle of Mogadishu?

versus


In September 1991, severe fighting broke out in
Mogadishu Mogadishu
, which continued in the following months and spread throughout the country, with over 20,000 people killed or injured by the end of the year. These wars led to the destruction of the
Economy_of_Somalia Economy_of_Somalia
, which in turn led to starvation in large parts of the country. The
International_community International_community
began to send food supplies to halt the starvation, but vast amounts of food were hijacked and brought to local clan leaders, who routinely exchanged it with other countries for weapons. An estimated 80 percent of the food was stolen. These factors led to even more
Starvation Starvation
, from which an estimated 300,000 people died and another 1.5 million people suffered between 1991 and 1992. In July 1992, after a ceasefire between the opposing clan factions, the U.N. sent 50 military observers to watch the food's distribution.[18]

Read these with a pinch of salt, but you get the idea. A (small) handful of shitskins will return but firmly on the zionist leash as fronts for the harvesting of resources, democratization and global positioning.

Somali_Canadians Somali_Canadians

Canada has one of the largest Somali populations in the western world.

The Canadian Somali Congress has also teamed up with local Jewish community organizations in Ottawa and Toronto to offer mentorship opportunities to young Somali university students and professionals. The program is scheduled to span two years and takes place in various major cities across the country, partnering 130 experienced Jewish-Canadian mentors with 18 to 25 year-old Somali-Canadians.

Following a greatly improved security situation in Somalia in 2012, many Somali residents of Canada have begun returning to Mogadishu and other parts of the country for investment opportunities and to take part in the ongoing post-conflict reconstruction process. Participating in the renovation of schools, hospitals, roads and other infrastructure, they have played a leading role in the capital's recovery and have also helped propel the local real estate market.




Real estate's a hot commodity in Somalia's capital

The real estate boom started with the arrival of aid agencies that assisted thousands of famine-hit Somalis in 2011.

On a recent morning, as Nor sipped strong coffee in his office, two portly men arrived and asked to be shown around. He stepped out with the potential buyers, pointing here and there at newly built houses for sale. When the men settled on a gritty stone house located near the presidential lodge, negotiations with the owner quickly commenced and a deal was sealed within hours: $900,000.

BARCLAYS will tomorrow pull the plug on companies that allow people to transfer money to their families in "developing" countries


Farah and critics of the move say that Barclays’ decision will cause a humanitarian catastrophe in Somalia, which has no functioning bank network, forcing people to rely on money remittance companies. People in Somalia rely on the money sent from abroad to buy food and medicines. Barclays has 25 per cent of the market for money transfers to Somalia and Farah says its decision will not only stop people from sending money back to their families, it will hinder aid agencies operating in the region.

In an email Farah, who was born in Somalia, said: “Cutting this lifeline will be a disaster for the Somali regions and the UK. It is not just personal remittances that families send back – it will impact on all of the major aid organisations in the region, including my foundation, which rely on these businesses for paying staff and running their programmes.”
