African Union Considers Sending Ethiopian Troops to Somalia
NAIROBI, Kenya — The African Union is considering an ambitious plan to stabilize Somalia that could involve using thousands of Ethiopian troops to open a new front against the Shabab militant group, officials of the union said Thursday.
The African Union’s peacekeepers are already battling the Shabab in Mogadishu, the capital, and Kenyan forces have recently begun fighting the Shabab in southern Somalia near Kismaayo. But the prospect of the Ethiopian Army returning to the country under the African Union’s banner is highly charged because of Ethiopia’s bitter history in Somalia.
An official of the Somali government said Thursday that Ethiopian troops had already begun to move across the border, discomfiting Somalia’s president, Sheik Sharif Sheik Ahmed.

Let other african nations take part actively in sharing the burden when it comes to Somalia. It is their duty and their responsibilty. Above all, it is unfair that only few east african countries are dealing with the AL-SHABAB terrorists.The Al-shabab terrorism is not just an east african problem. It is an african problem, if not an international. If ethiopian troops join their fellow kenyans, I bet that this is the end of ALSHABAB and its sponsors as we world knows them.
This isnt even news.
What many of you people dont know is that WEVE NEVER LEFT. Just because we dont have a base in Mokadisho anymore doesnt mean there are no Ethiopian troops. Our troops have been crossing the border for a year now. Last september 2010, We sent like 500 troops to Beledweyne in Somalia. The Al shabab troops there abandoned the town at the sight of our tanks. No casualties except the pride of the al shabab cowards was shot dead. After holding it for 3 days, we gave it to TFG troops and left.
We have always been present in Somalia, we are always crossing the border as recenrtly as june when we and some kenyan troops killed al shabab terrorists trying to enter kenya from Somalia.
Ethiopias army causes them hell without even being there!
It is like killing two birds with one stone. We know shabia is medling in this front with what ever they can to distabilize the reigion. And if we send the brave and well experianced Ethiopian forces, in no time they will take out alshebab, which will brake the spinalcords of shabia. Believe me we will find a concrete evidence of shabian envolvement, with the capture of few shabians in south somalia.
Be gwaaro ber shesheto, be meskot lemegebat memegnet, ayieeee ye TPLF neger. If I were you, I will keep my militia in Shewa, the land is rumbling under your feet, the inevitable day is fast approaching. Sad, your arrogance and hatred has blinded your eyes from seeing it.
End the occupation, freedom for the Ethiopian people.
Its no need to send ethiopia defense force to cursh shabab bla bal.
Just send 500 militia MEMBERS from my AGAZEAN HOME TOWN ADIGRAT.
Where we will give these coward islamists,women beaters,anti people terror groups a lesson just like back in 2006.
I remeber how women beater islamists fighters were hiding behind somalian women dress ,along with 2000 eritreans fighters who went to help the I.C.U.
But no women dress was able to save these losers,where they were crushed and made fertilizers.
These islamists terror groups are the biggest cowards in the world.
They have no military tactics or bravery,but to use human life as a shield.
Our ethiopian somalis have to take part destroying these wild moqadishu pirates,terror groups,and the show of ones who walk around with guns.
In 1998 we the brave ordindary tigreans were able to deter and crush the well equiped,mechanized eplf forces.
ZELAMBASA,ALATINA,EAGALA,MONOKSOYETO,are still weatness of the hard battle that took place.
All ethiopians who reside on border towns with neighboring countries should play a significant roll crushing foreign enemies ,like we the TIGRAY ETHIOPIANS HAVE DONE FOR THOUSANDS OF YEAR.
Ethiopian people saftey,stablity,and well being should always be the first priority.
You can bomb them and smoke them but at the end al shabab will come out from their cave and hit you back. The only out of these mess is to target shabian inside Eritrea . Let them smell the smoke and bullet once again then you will see that mad man of Asmara pol pot issayas digging his own grave and die like his boy friend gahdafi . That will be the end of Somalian suffering. Otherwise, you are chasing one hyena from one village while others hide and loughing at AU troops knowing that they will be a dinner some time.
Nazret yesetoch TejBet LOL
I wonder what this Agazi Gay is made of. Aren’t you ashamed of fooling yourself? How far do you think you can go covering your naked pride by bla bla against a FREE country?
Stop see yourself as the Hero, Ethiopia’s history is not made yesterday through woyane its been kept by the blood of all Ethiopians equally for DECADES. You guys just been there for ((few)) years.
Suck like a lice until you are…. or
make peace with the owners before they kick your ass back to Raya where you used to sing WE ARE THE WORLD.
@ Agazi (?)
You said …
All ethiopians who reside on border towns with neighboring countries should play a significant roll crushing foreign enemies ,like we the TIGRAY ETHIOPIANS HAVE DONE FOR THOUSANDS OF YEAR…..
You know your crimes, thats why you suspect all the people of Ethiopia and put them in prison.
Lets take the Somali Ethios (in Ogaden) bordering the Somalia, how can they defend woyane interest while they are tortured, raped, deprived from their homes without shelter?
They left their homes in flame, bombed by woyane soldiers. So how the hell do you want them to fight for Ethiopia?
Are they considered as equal Ethiopian as YOU on the first place?
What is the difference between gambelan, ogadenya or Tgrayan, if you all considered and treated equally as Ethiopians?
Then why do woyane need to put people in prison?
Why do people need to stay in refugee camps exposing themselves to rough conditions in neighbouring Kenya?
So Defend whoes interest?
I thought Ethiopia is free
or am i wrong?
Aye ye Woyane neger. They never learn.Not long ago after wasting so many innocent Ethiopian blood for nothing they have to leave Somalia with their tail between the legs. Now they must seen the $$$$ sign in the mirror.
Beside this is the usual Woyane tactics to distract the angry crowd back at home.
An excellent move by Mighty Ethiopia trapping Fascist-Shabiya in its rear hole while backstabber Shabiya sucks the indomitable Weyane cock right in front of its own door across the Mereb River :-)
What a Treacherous Chingaff Mafiosi - Good luck Scumbag Shabos.
In the end though Ethiopia will be the undisputed victor over the parasite Fascist-Shabiya!
NO ETHIOPIAN SOLDIERS IN SIDE SOMALI EXIST ,BUT TPLF COWARD SOLDIERS ARE THERE.
ONCE AGAIN WE WILL TEACH EVERY ONE WHO DO NOT UNDERSTAND FACT.
WE KICK AMERICA ,ETHIOPIA, UGANDA AND ETC,I THINK IT IS FACT FOR ALL!!!
Ethiopia beats Somalia in football and now we’re gonna’ abuse them physically too? Good luck weyanes, let the rest of us know when they start dragging our poor voiceless, submissive, law abiding and order following Soldiers through the ruined street of Moqadisho! No shame at all, no fucking shame in Meles. He clings to power by creating conflict, headache and trouble. If Ethiopians for a single year would ignore his obvious and deliberate attention grabbing occasional hiccups and were to gather their whole attention to him and his brutality, he’d out of job by the end of that imaginary year. But we’re still asleep.
Igzer EtyoP’yan And’ Yargat, Kek’fum YiT’ebikat.
Wakes up every day proud that I’m an Ethiopian.
One more time to Somalia???
Mekera yaltegebe ayit yedmet afincha ylisal alu….(proverb translated to amharic…for Amhara wannabe Agaziwoch…LOL
I hope no any Ethiopian is willing to die in Somalia to fulfill woyanes interest.
Yeah Please Meles do that as soon as possible. The coward Kenyans are lingering in the border under the pretext of “heavy rain". Go Ethiopia and show them how to HUJUM and finish the enemy out there. Go Ethiopia; decimate the Al shabab terrorist cell.
