As a result of para-terrorism, Crisis Reporting has become more dangerous than ever. Many of the World Leaders are being charged with Human Rights Violations and want to cover up what they are doing. An example is Rwanda’s 15 years of genocide.

, now Somalia’s Parliament requests international assistance against terrorist. The Somalia Government has declared a state of emergency. The surrounding countries are awaiting the international communities response and framework to provide assistance.

The Shabab-one of the Islamist Militias and most fearsome threatened to bomb the buildings of Nairobi if Kenya intervenes. The purpose of these terrorist attacks, per the New York Times on Sunday June 21, 2009 is to “destabilize the region”.

This breakaway nation in the southeastern part of Ethiopia is known as nomadic and pastoral people. Now they are not only awaiting diplomatic recognition but also assistance from the international community. The 13 million people in Somalia are predominately Islamic and has been since the 1400s.

Terrorist and spend a lot of time and money, sometimes more than a countries national defense funding. Many are funded by illegal activities and use technology that is more advanced than most are use to seeing a an average bases. Terrorist use religion to recruit the youth, and Somalia is predominately Islamic. Para-terrorism is used when normal means of getting agreement for assistance is refused.

It is unfortunate that many terrorist and para-terrorist groups have more international influence than some countries. For example, the Taliban is the past governmental body of Afghanistan, it controlled Afghanistan from 1996-2001.

With no international recognition for peace, can Somalia get international assistance?

The Writings of African-Americans®: The Taliban or Taleban: How Can A Terrorist and Para-terrorist Group Be That Powerful?

Because they were the government of Afghanistan from 1996 to 2001, they have an army (armed forces), access to military arms, international governmental connections, and influence on politics worldwide.

This “ex-governmental” body is waging para-terrorist warfare against NATO. Such rules as, “…women can not learn at all…” tells the pure opposite of the “American Way” and the “American Dream”.

Before peaceful negotiations can be made to end this war and international power disruption, we must not be hypocrites, a first step is to remember the Taliban or Taleban does not respect women. Before we can help improve a people, we must first understand them, learn from and with them, and be careful of our approach to the introduction of new knowledge.

They are use to defending, not only a country, but also a heroine trade. Five years of control, power, international influence, and a hidden heroine drug trade is a lot of practice. We are not really fighting the current Afghanistan government, we are really fighting the past Afghanistan government.

Local and national newspapers have reported confiscated para-terrorist money when crossing country borders, once as much as sevenj0432712 million dollars.

Recently escaped, David Rohde, member of the Times team to receive a Pulitzer Prize, was seized in Afghanistan by the Taliban and held for seven months in the North Waziristan region of Pakistan. Crisis Reporting can put your life on the line. and have published reports including recommendations to the Taliban and other hostile armed groups to, “cease using civilians as shields.” At this rate they may beat Rwanda’s 15 years of genocide,  in having the worst violence of the 20th Century in the 21st Century.

Para-terrorism is worst than war, at least war has some rules that all involved agree to follow. The Taliban or Taleban operate out of both Afghanistan and Pakistan. It is a hope and prayer that the United States government learned from past experience the necessity of knowing the enemy its culture, its languages, its spirit.

David Rohde, years before had been taken prisoner when reporting in Bosnia.

In Kampala, Uganda Eastern Africa, the drinking water has contained human waste and high-levels of dirt. The bacteria cause:

  • Cholera,
  • Dysentery, and
  • Diarrhea.

It is also 12 to 40 times higher for dirt and foreign matter than considered safe levels. Dr. William Muhairwe is the National Water & Sewerage Corporation head and states the water at the reservoir is safe. The people of Kampala, Uganda  routinely boil the water and that may be the reason for no major health reports. The water come from Lake Victoria and is treated at a reservoir, but is carried to home in substandard pipes that are 50 years old.

In Ethiopia, global warming and drought  are effecting animal herding. In Nairobi, Kenya Hippos are in the water treatment plant and terrify the local people.

In Southern Africa, the rainy season caused another outbreak of cholera. The city of Lusaka, Zambia is right next to Zimbabwe, who in late January of this year had its own cholera epidemic that killed bout 2,800 people.

Limited and contaminated water supplies mean:

  1. Widespread illness,
  2. Often fatal illness, and
  3. More likely these illness will occur in young children
