Sample text

S. S. Interests and Options 19 intervention for stabilization and reconstruction, and an offshore counterterrorist containment strategy. Each of these options, however, suffers from significant shortcomings. A better course of action for the United States is to pursue a policy of constructive disengagement. Continue Current Policy The current policy of providing military and diplomatic support to the TFG is, for the reasons discussed earlier, not bearing fruit. It is also extremely costly. The military stalemate that has held since May 7, 2009, has displaced more than two hundred thousand people from Mogadishu—prolonging a cycle of suffering and radicalization and adding to an already horrendous refugee problem on the Kenyan border.

That is a terribly high price to pay for protecting a government that commands little support on the ground, administers no territory, and has, despite the efforts of the international community over the past five years, developed no institutional or military capacity to govern the country. Without supportive political momentum on the ground, the current peacekeeping mission is likely to be as futile as the Ethiopian invasion, and may end in the same way, with an embarrassing withdrawal of troops.

That approach requires that the United States and its partners not take all pro-Shabaab and, in the short term, all pro-al-Qaeda rhetoric at face value. S. officials must assume an inclusive posture toward local fundamentalists yet indicate a zero-tolerance policy toward transnational actors attempting to exploit Somalia’s conflict. Perhaps most challenging, the United States must prepare to tolerate a period of uncertainty while the struggle for influence between radical and moderate actors plays out, town by town.
