Nation-Building ala NATO: Kosovo, Afghanistan, Sudan partners only with criminals

Ugandan Girls Entering Juba Prostitution Racket ukFlorence Ogola – Growing concern that vulnerable youngsters being trafficked or lured by promises they can make good money across border in Sudan. Mother-of-four Acullu Rose has not seen her daughter since the 13-year-old left the family home in Atiak, northern Uganda, to travel to Sudan two months ago. Rose fears the teenager has been lured into a life of prostitution by a merchant from Sudan who was doing business in Atiak, a trading centre only 50 kilometres south of the border. “I have looked for my daughter and many people tell me that she is in Juba (the capital of South Sudan) working as a prostitute,” she said. “What can a young girl like mine be doing in such kind of business? I know that I am poor – this war has really affected us – but I have tried my level best to provide for all my children.” uganda_street Activists say more than half of all Ugandan prostitutes in Juba come northern Uganda, and that many of them are young girls. (Photo: Stein Ove Korneliussen) Child prostitution is already commonplace in Atiak, where girls as young as 11 can be seen selling their bodies on the street to survive. Typical of many border locations in Africa, travellers moving between the two countries fuel the sex industry. Now officials and activists are concerned that vulnerable youngsters, some of whom are already prostitutes, are being trafficked to Juba or, seeing their friends return with fancy mobile phones and smart clothes, enticed away by promises that they can make good money in the South Sudan capital. At the child protection unit in the Atiak sub-county local government, 15 parents have reported that their daughters have gone to Sudan and are calling on the authorities to intervene. The girls are aged between 11 and 17; only one has since returned home. Okongo Gabriel, who is in charge of the unit, believes that there could be many more children who have left home for Sudan, but parents are afraid to come forwards because of what the community might say about them and their family. Onekgiu Roman, an official in the community liaison department of the central police station in the northern Ugandan town of Gulu, blames officers at the border post for not spotting children crossing over to Sudan. “We have links with the police in Atiak and, yes, there are cases where girls from here have gone that far for prostitution,” he said. “Most of them are told that through this ‘business’, they are able to earn three times as much as they could in Gulu.” The immigration officer in charge of the Nimule border station, between Uganda and Sudan, declined to comment on concerns over children crossing the frontier. Ojok Felix, a social worker with the NGO War Child Holland, says that his organisation has been meeting parents and sub-county authorities in order to find a way forward, and have located some of the girls whose families have reported missing to the police. “According to our investigations, five girls have been spotted on the streets of Juba, one has since returned,” he said. “We are working with friends and relatives in order to bring the girls back.” Cathy Groenendijk, the director and founder of a small Juba-based NGO, Confident Children Out of Conflict – one of the few organisations catering for young girls at risk of sexual exploitation in South Sudan – says more than half of all Ugandan prostitutes in Juba come from Gulu and Lira, also in norhern Uganda, and that many of them are young girls.



Helicopter Rumour Refuses to Die

Ahmad Kawoosh – Persistent accounts of western forces in Afghanistan using their helicopters to ferry Taleban fighters, strongly denied by the military, is feeding mistrust of the forces that are supposed to be bringing order to the country.

One such tale came from a soldier from the 209th Shahin Corps of the Afghan National Army, fighting against the growing insurgency in Kunduz province in northern Afghanistan. Over several months, he had taken part in several pitched battles against the armed opposition.

“Just when the police and army managed to surround the Taleban in a village of Qala-e-Zaal district, we saw helicopters land with support teams,” he said. “They managed to rescue their friends from our encirclement, and even to inflict defeat on the Afghan National Army.”

This story, in one form or another, is being repeated throughout northern Afghanistan. Dozens of people claim to have seen Taleban fighters disembark from foreign helicopters in several provinces. The local talk is of the insurgency being consciously moved north, with international troops ferrying fighters in from the volatile south, to create mayhem in a new location.

Helicopters are almost exclusively the domain of foreign forces in Afghanistan – the international military controls the air space, and has a virtual monopoly on aircraft. So when Afghans see choppers, they think foreign military.

“Our fight against the Taleban is nonsense,” said the soldier from Shahin Corps. “Our foreigner ‘friends’ are friendlier to the opposition.”

For months or even years, rumours have been circulating in Afghanistan that the Taleban are being financed or even directly supported militarily by the foreign forces.

In part it stems from an inability to believe that major foreign armies cannot defeat a ragtag bunch of insurgents; in addition, Afghanistan has been a centre of foreign intrigue for so long that belief in plots comes naturally to many war-weary Afghans.

The international troops hotly deny that they are supporting the insurgents.

“This entire business with the helicopters is just a rumour,” said Brigadier General Juergen Setzer, recently appointed commander for the International Security Assistance Force, ISAF, in the north. “It has no basis in reality, according to our investigations.”

The general added that ISAF-North had overall control of the air space in the northern region.

But the persistent rumours that foreign helicopters have been sighted assisting the Taleban in northern Afghanistan were given an unexpected boost in mid-October by Afghan president Hamed Karzai, who told the media that his administration was investigating similar reports that “unknown” helicopters were ferrying the insurgents from Helmand province in the south to Baghlan, Kunduz, and Samangan provinces in the north.

Captain Tim Dark, of Britain’s Task Force Helmand, was vehement in his reaction.

“The thought that British soldiers could be aiding and abetting the enemy is just rubbish,” he said. “We have had 85 casualties so far this year.”


Kosovo reassessed?

Kosovo has been back on the front pages in recent weeks with lurid allegations against its prime minister and dominant politician, Hashim Thaci, accusing him of involvement in organised crime and even harvesting human organs for sale for profit. Mr Thaci has denied the allegations.

    Liberated by the West (III)
    (Own report) – Following Afghanistan’s presidential elections, threatened violence could barely be averted. According to reports, one of Germany’s cooperation partners – Atta Muhammad Noor, the governor of the Balkh Province – was responsible for the repeated threats to storm government buildings, in Kabul, if Abdulla Abdullah, the alleged loser of the elections, is not included in the government. The German Bundeswehr maintains its main military base („Camp Marmal“) in Mazar-i-Sharif, the capital of the Balkh Province. To prevent unrest, the Bundeswehr is closely cooperating with the warlord Atta, who is accused of serious human rights violations and who uses his power to amass enormous wealth. He is now considered one of Afghanistan’s wealthiest men. Strengthened by his cooperation with the West, Atta is planning to extend his regional influence through Abdullah, who will become „Chief Executive Officer“ of the new government. Atta, today’s warlord ruler of the north of „liberated“ Afghanistan, had already been terrorizing the region’s population in the 1990s. At the time, widespread fear of the warlords‘ terror had paved the way for the Taliban to take power.
    Afghanistan’s CEO
    Only with great difficulty and under massive western pressure, did Ashraf Ghani Ahmadzai and Abdullah Abdullah – two candidates in last weekend’s Afghanistan’s presidential run-off elections – reach an accord in their power struggle. Abdullah had contested Ghani’s electoral victory, pointing to massive electoral fraud. The results of the recount were not disclosed leaving indications that – even after corrections – Ghani was still the clear victor, confirmed. The accord stipulates that Ghani will be appointed President and Abdullah „Chief Executive Officer“ (CEO) – a newly created office primarily handling daily policy. Both parties will have an equal share of ministerial posts. Observers assume that, should the „unity government“ last, it will preserve the country’s balance of power. Ghani represents the ultra conservative Pashtun tribes and Abdullah, the forces of the Northern Alliance. Atta Muhammad Noor, the Governor of the Balkh Province, who is in control of Mazar-i-Sharif, the most important economic center in northern Afghanistan [1] is the driving force behind Abdullah Abdullah.
    Situation under Control
    Since 2005, the German Bundeswehr has maintained its largest military base, „Camp Marmal,“ in Mazar-i Sharif. Around 1,450 of the 1,800 German soldiers in Afghanistan are currently stationed in „Camp Marmal,“ from where the so-called training mission is to be conducted over the next few years – also with German participation. Berlin has considerable interests in preventing unrest in Mazar-i-Sharif and the surrounding region and therefore is cooperating with Atta Muhammad Noor. Already immediately following the occupation of Afghanistan, the West had supported Atta, because he was considered to be capable of restraining his rival, the notorious butcher, Abdul Rashid Dostum and establishing a stable balance of power in the country’s North. In 2004, he became Governor of the Balkh Province, with western approval, and has since met with several German ministers. In March 2012, Chancellor Merkel had had her picture taken during a personal meeting with him. In July 2011, Foreign Minister Westerwelle held consultations with Atta for the celebration of the transfer of official control over Mazar-i-Sharif to local authorities. At the time, it was explained that the governor of Balkh is being „courted by Germans and Americans,“ because he has „the situation largely under control“ and has shown his „willingness for economic modernization.“[2]
    „A Murderer, a Criminal“
    Atta Muhammad Noor’s critics give insight into how he keeps „the situation largely under control.“ Atta, who, since the early 1980s, has been fighting in the various Afghan wars and, since the early 1990s, was considered one of the country’s most important warlords, had maintained a „human slaughterhouse“ near Mazar-i-Sharif, according to an analysis of the „Afghan Independent Human Rights Commission“ (AIHRC). The AIHRC has investigated war crimes committed between 1978 and 2001 in Afghanistan.[3] The publication of their analysis had been suppressed at the time and there was no investigation of the crimes on persons, whose remains have been discovered in mass graves over the past few years – also in the German controlled area of northern Afghanistan. „If you would talk about Governor Atta to an average Afghan, living in the North, you would get the response: He is a murderer, a killer, a criminal,“ remarked an Afghan observer in 2009. „But the ISAF countries turn a deaf ear.“[4] Repeated abuse – particularly on the Pashtun minority of northern Afghanistan – has been reported. For example, journalists described how a doctor was murdered, simply because he owned property in a part of the city, Atta sought to bring under his control.[5] Already in an interview with in 2010, the journalist Marc Thörner warned that „the police force, trained by the Germans in Balkh, is the police force of Governor Atta’s principality. As various reports and testimonies have proven, this police force is still committing serious human rights violations.“[6]
    Afghanistan’s Orange Revolution
    Atta Muhammad Noor, who was successfully able to accumulate huge sums of money over the past few years, to become one of the most wealthy men in the country, is now said to seek to transform his wealth and regional power into trans-regional influence. Since the death of the North Alliance leader, Muhammad Qasim Fahim, he has been seeking to impose himself as the leader of the Tajik-speaking sector of the population, forging alliances with warlords throughout the country and investing large amounts of money to finance Abdullah Abdullah’s election campaign. According to an Afghan journalist, „Abdullah is merely Atta’s marionette.“ It is reported that Atta has threatened to have „government buildings stormed and occupied,“ should Abdullah not receive „half of the posts“ in the Afghan government. „He announced he would stage an Orange Revolution, like in Ukraine, and has instructed his followers in Kabul to begin sewing orange flags.“[7] In fact, according to the report, it is feared that Atta could organize a putsch, should his demands not be met. US President Barack Obama has personally talked to him on several occasions by phone; soldiers of a US special unit visited him in his governor’s palace several times, to make it clear „that it is not in his best interests, to act against Washington’s interests.“ German diplomats have also intervened and sought to „have a tempering effect.“[8]
    The Voice of Freedom
    Last weekend’s accord can be considered a victory for Atta. His candidate, Abdullah has secured equal influence for himself in the „unity government,“ which enhances Atta’s own opportunities for expanding his influence, thanks also to the systematic promotion he was receiving from Berlin and Washington. The German-US supported ruler uses an iron hand to suppress criticism from within the population. Media representatives complain of massive pressure. Just last week, the journalist Palwasha Tokhi was murdered in the center of Mazar-i-Sharif. Tokhi’s life could have been saved. Having worked for four years for the Bundeswehr’s „Camp Marmal“ radio station („Sada-i-Azadi Shamal“ – „Voice of Freedom in the North“), she was among that category of Afghans considered particularly endangered in the aftermath of the western troops‘ partial withdrawal and, therefore, would have been eligible to apply for being allowed to leave for Germany. Had Berlin accepted her application, she would still be alive. In Afghanistan, reports explain that journalists „could also face threats from government employees.“ However, this kind of threat is „not included among the criteria established by the German government for accepting an application of a former Bundeswehr employee.“[9]
