IGAD’s declaration of war in Kismayo, real chance for armed liberation

Kismayo (KON) - The move by IGAD mercenaries to airlift bogus delegates to Kismayo last week in order to attend illegal meeting aimed to approve the invasion of certain clans including refugees from Kenya and Ethiopia, was enough to be considered as a declaration of war against the people living in Jubba regions.

Despite knowing the fact on the ground, instructions of some western countries have made IGAD mercenaries to approve blindly illegal clan communiqué issued under the name of IGAD last year.

The communiqué issued by clan warmonger Mahbub Mohamed, the current Secretary General of IGAD, indicated that the Ogadeni refugees from Ethiopia and a new bunch of Ogadenis from Kenya are the genuine owners of Jubbaland regions in southern Somalia, while labeling the majority groups in the region as minorities. The unhidden truth in the region and among all Somalis is that there is only one district all over Somalia, which is inhabited by the local Ogadenis, who are lawfully Somali citizens.

Kismayo conference

The conspiracy of conducting the Kismayo conference was announced by Sheikh Mohamud Aw Libah, self styled Ahlu Sunna leader, who himself comes from central Somalia regions. With instructions from Ogadeni officials in Kenyan government, officials from the so called Puntland region (there is no official region called Puntland in Somalia’s constitution and history as well), and  officials from Zone Five region in Ethiopia, Aw Libah denied that the conference  was being sponsored by the IGAD puppets.

While enjoying the support of few western countries that have resources interests in Jubbaland, the refugees, who call themselves the future leaders of Jubbaland, tend to forget that the word has come out long ago to make sure their conspiracy fails.

In 1960 there was a shooting at Sharpeville, in South Africa, which resulted in proclamation of a state of emergency and the declaration of the ANC as an unlawful organization. This is what the great hero Nelson Mandela said after the event:  “My colleagues and I, after careful consideration, decided that we would not obey this decree. The African people were not part of the government and did not make the laws by which they were governed”.

By quoting this piece of Mandela’s speech, the people of Jubbaland have one responsibility which is to respond to the declaration of war made by IGAD.  Their first and last responsibility is to fight by any means.

History tells us that no community in this world has acquired its rights and liberations with mere talks. Many people in the world preferred to fight as a result of unrest and frustration  because the perceived foreign rule or invaders’ rule to be a form of exploitation and mistreatment, which served only to further economic interests for the enemy . Like the case of Wagosha community, they have to bear in mind that in order to disrupt the plans of the enemies, they do not need to have military tanks or modern sophisticated weapons.  Your role will simply be a role of destroying which is always cheaper than any other thing.

The Wagosha community was always ready to engage in talks, when deciding the future of their land, but when all these calls were ignored, the alternative, which is armed struggle, has to work.

Kenya, Ethiopia conspiracy

The shaky government of Ethiopia and Kenya, who are struggling with political and ethnic divisions in their countries, do always come up with plans which risk the stability of the region.

An official in the Ogadeni armed groups in Ethiopia, told western media that their group was offered a settlement in Jubbaland if they stopped the fighting against Addis Ababa, when peace talks between Ethiopia and ONLF held in Kenyan capital, Nairobi last year.

Another international diplomat said it’s the western countries that are pushing for Jubbaland bias plans, that favour the Ogadeni armed refugee clans.

Despite waiting for many years, finally, in 1991, the people of Hiiraan region in central Somalia and Somaliland succeeded to kick out the Ogadeni armed refugees from their lands. This has not come through dialogue but armed struggle with genuine cause, like the cause of Wagosha community.So its always possible when there is a will.

You were born free to decide for your future, and not to wait others decide for your fate. Kenyans and Ethiopians will not be here in Somalia forever, because even the dictator Siyad Barre had to go by force after many years of settling Ogadeni armed refugees in the country.

Using guerrilla war the armed liberation struggle

Bearing in mind that the enemy has more weapons than the indigenous people is not a genuine reason not to fight for your rights.  During the Vietnamese war the local people operated within their own districts. When necessary, small regional units would unite for large scale attacks. If enemy pressure became too great, they would break down into smaller units and scatter.

For the most part, recruits were young teenagers, who were motivated by idealism, confidence and their ability to fight heavily armed and well-trained American soldiers.

In this holy war, you have even a strong reason to fight, because the Islamic religion allows you to defend your sovereignty and rights, even if it amounts in killing enemy soldiers and their supporters.

Wagosha people have also another genuine reason to turn their weapons to the enemies. When the unreported genocide of thousands of people took place against Wagosha in 1990ties, yet the international agencies allowed humanitarian aid to be diverted and used to fund warlord General Mohamed Said Morgan, who led the massacre of the innocent people.

The armed struggle has to be in gradual steps like in the Vietnamese war, where local guerrillas were given only a basic minimum of infantry training, but if they were recruited to a main force unit, they could receive up to a month of advanced instruction. Additionally, there were dozens of hidden centers all over South Vietnam for squad and platoon leader, weapons and radio training. To ensure that the guerrillas understood why they were fighting, all training courses included political instruction.

Many weapons, including booby traps and mines, were homemade in villages. The materials ranged from scavenged tin can to discarded wire, but the most important ingredients were provided by the enemy. In a year, dud American bombs could leave more than 20,000 tons of explosives scattered around the Vietnamese countryside. After air-raids, volunteers retrieved the duds and the dangerous business of creating new weapons began.

Local forces also designed primitive weapons, some designed to frighten intruders, but others were extremely dangerous. “Punji traps” — sharp spikes hidden in pits — could easily disable an enemy soldier. Punjis were often deliberately contaminated to increase the risk of infection. This kind of a weapon is not different from the traditional weapons the Wagosha people used in the 17th century to prevent the invasion of Somali pastoral clans from capturing the Goshaland.

Having all these tactics empowered with modern techniques, it’s obvious that the struggle will reach another level until the final liberation comes.

Death to the invaders,

Victory to Wagosha liberation

Fight for your rights, failure to it you are breaking Islamic values

Goshaland will be liberated at last
