White House, DaDaab, Somalia, KDF--


TO SMLA FROM ASSOCIATES SUBJ KENYAN ARMY OCCUPATION  1800PDT


FOLLOWING REPORT FILED:

NAIROBI (Recon News Agy)--As withdrawal guidelines go, it is from past experience that none of them seem to go as planned. The most outrageous failure on troop withdrawal has been the US from Iraq that many congressmen have blamed the White House for the rise of the Caliphate State.

The problem exists around the globe; self-styled armies are fighting to ouster Assad in Syria, their withdrawal is obviously never. The Saudis have all but invaded Yemen recently and no timetable for invasion has been set, much less a withdrawal. The Chadian Army ahs joined with Niger to swoop down into Nigeria to rout the Boko Haram thugs with no timetable for withdrawal.

Then there's the Kenyan Defense Forces incursion into Somalia in 2011 to fight the Al Shabaab militants who have all but run Somalia to ruin and now are intent on the destabilization of Kenya as well. The difference here is the recent call to Washington from Mogadishu to assist in getting the KDF to go home.




THE STAR. KE  (April 11)--
THE Somalia government has said the Kenya Defence Forces should pull out of the country by 2017 as part of an agreement under the African Union Mission in Somalia treaty.
Somalia Foreign Affairs minister Abdisalaan Omar yesterday said the troops have stabilised the war-torn country since their incursion in 2011 to help the Somali government fight off al Shabaab

Four years ongoing already and the KDF is still in-country.

The Obama administration has called American efforts in Somalia a success and cited the recent raid on Garissa as "desperate".  This is typical of a government that has little grasp of the situation; even now that Somalia wants the US to tell Kenya to get out. And in light of the fact that Kenya will now demand the 500,000 refugees in DaDaab go home.


The situation comes on the heels of the White House far-flung efforts to tame Iran and open the diplomatic gates to Cuba. It always works this way. A major crisis erupts where many lives are at stake, students, refugees; go make friends with enemies, make it look like there is some big humanitarian strides being made. Make deals that don't seem to add up in the real world, and probably won't in the long run.

DaDaab Gets the Boot from Kenya


TO SMLA FROM ASSOCIATES SUBJ REFUGEE CAMP EVICTION  1800PDT


FOLLOWING REPORT FILED

MOGADISHU (Recon Presse USA)--Following the bloody attack on a college in the first week of April in Kenya that left nearly 150 students dead, the government of Kenya has issued an order that it wants the UN to close the massive refugee camp along the Somali border.

In so much as there are already 500K refugees in the camp, there is also, according to UNHCR, as many as 1000 more showing up on the doorstep of the camp daily. A little math can go a long way here to show just how futile moving the camp would be:

500,000 refugees/90 days = 5555 refugees/day evicted.

That's only if the operation were to begin immediately. Keep in mind that many of the refugees, the kids, are already 3rd generation squatters, as their parents showed up back in the days of the US intervention in Somalia. 

It's over 50 miles up Route A3 from the camp to the Somali border, much further than anyone can be expected to hike to get out of the country, even at 3-4 miles per hour on a good walking surface on a good day. The refugees would need several days to get to the border, where currently a wall is being built to keep more of them out.



It's suicide on a grand scale for Kenya to even suggest it would be possible to remove the entire camp in that short of time, and one can only imagine what will happen if the deadline isn't met by the UN.

 

Even as this is about to happen, Somalia has come to Obama and the United States in a effort to get the Kenyan army out of Somalia, where it's been for months now rooting out Al Shabaab and bombing their camps along the border. The response from Washington is to go to Cuba and shake hands with the Castro brothers..
