Commentary: THE FINAL COLLAPSE OF SOMALI STATE

 

Mogadishu,1st April 2006
By Banadir.Com

After almost 15 years of continous inter-clan fighting and militia clashes that resulted the disintegration of the whole country into several semi-autonomous clan-based regions and forced a great deal of its innocent population into refugee camps and migration,just as the internationl community was reading for the shaky federal government to take control now, it is apparent to all that Somalia's problems are not yet over as a new wave of violence has engulfed the country.

This new wave of clashes had a tremendous effect on the already devastated country which faces now the prospect of a severe famine in the coming months, unless the international donor community steps in and bolsters a depleting funding crisis which has left Aid agencies struggling to cope with feeding programmes.

Enough is enough. Reconciliation talks and conferences were taking place since the fall of Siad Barre's regime in early 1991. Nothing came out,only prolonged sufferings for the innocent, and as we have witnessed in the past, this renewed clan fighting may spiral into a very complex catastrophe once again .

This is clearly a new chalenge, not for the Somalis and the region,but for the whole world.The time is now and it is up to international community to chalenge and confront the warlords once and for all. The International community must extend its support to the Somali People.The Federal Government should be given a chance to govern and prove itself.

This support could be best utilised by way of reminding to all that the barrel of gun is no longer the way of life,but respect of law and order.If the Internationl community misses this opportunity, It will surely push Somalia into its final collapse.
