Somali Civil War
Transcript of Somali Civil War
My father Now is the Mp( Member of parliament) of Somalia. He goes back and forth to from Minneapolis to Somali and occasionally stops at Dubai. My grandmother and some family members live there. Also because we own a cargo ship there and a regular cloths store. My father takes risks on going to the very place where there is a war. There are many personal things he has witnessed there, but why risk everything? To fight for what you believe in. My father is a politician and he is helping his country.
The war in Somalia has been going on since 1991 and in some places it ended but till this day there are people still fighting for the country and starving in Africa. The war started because of tribalism. Also they wanted to over throw there dictator Siad Barre. People were going around saying my tribe is better than yours. Until today the Somali community fight about tribes here in Minnesota. People are racist in there own Community to there own people because of your tribes. I don't care about tribes and if someone asks me what tribe are you I say " I'm Somali".
Mohamed Siad Barre was the former president of Somalia and dictator. Barre was forced to flee the capital of mogadishu by opponents of his regime and clan members. He didn't give up his ambition of recapturing the city for many months. but, confronted by a vengeful Somali militia, and alarmed by disagreements between his own family and supporters, Siad eventually fled to Kenya.
