Somalia: Mission in The Name of Peace Keeping; Trading with People's
May 18, 2009, 12:19
Lacking any kind of popular support or acceptance, the third arrangement
of the so called 'government' imposed on the Somali people by the
auspices of foreign forces ever since the country was declared a 'failed
state' is already being engulfed in a fierce popular opposition. It is
not surprising that the Somali people's opposition to this foreign
imposed 'government' since that was an expected reaction. However,
what's more amazing is that the circumstances have brought a consortium
of elements that work to capital and profit from the current state of
affairs in Somalia.
These days, the forces that have entered Somalia under the pretext of
peacekeeping and stabilizing Somalia, namely the TPLF regime and the
governments of Burundi and Uganda have convened in Addis Ababa to access
their missions in Somalia.
Those forces have no intention of bringing peace and stability into
Somalia, but rather elongating the crisis so that they will profit from
it. As it is known, both Uganda and Ethiopia are far from stable,
they're both experiencing civil unrest as well as internal oppositions.
The same also goes for Burundi, which has spent years under successions
of UN peacekeeping missions due to recurring instances of chaos is
lacking peace and security. Expecting countries that are experiencing
recurrent internal turmoil come to aid in solving a crisis in other
country is either absurd or it is mockery at the suffering of peoples.
If these governments are really committed to peace and regard to people
they should rather attempt to alleviate the suffering of their own
people rather than go elsewhere.
The imposition of an alien government formed by foreign forces has been
attempted several times through invention or other wise and has proved a
failure. As articulated on several occasions, the situation in Somalia
is simply being complicated due to external unholy interferences with
differing agendas So the only viable solution for Somalia is to stop
meddling in its affairs and leave the Somali people freely decide their
future and start political process to reinstate their country. Chocking
the peace process under the pretext of peacekeeping mission can only be
interpreted as extending the period and intensity of the suffering of
the Somali people.
