Kenya Army KDF Achievements in Somalia Dwarfs Major Armies CapabilitiesFebruary 23 | Posted by David James | Intelligence News, Military Intelligence
Kenya Defense Forces have excelled where American troops failed to make a foot hold on territory. American troops invaded Somalia but were killed.
Ethiopian forces with logistical and military facilities support from the United States gained ground in a week but pulled back in frights as they were attacked and Killed by Islamic Courts troops.
No foreign army has managed a foothold in Somalia but Kenya Defense Forces have and this achievement is not going down well with powerful countries such as the US and Britain.
KDF is using a unique strategy to fight and win. They eliminate the enemy, scout, and police the liberated area besides bringing in local administration to assert its authority in the liberated area. Two KDF has TFG forces doing the policing and scouting work.
The purpose of this strategy is to preempt insurgency and guerilla rebirth. Interestingly, Kenya defense forces help demine the liberated areas, de-militarize, arrest elements of enemy, and most importantly, seal the liberated area besides ensuring arms are confiscated.
This ensures Al-Shabaab does not regroup and regain ground. The strategy paves way for lasting peace and social integration.
Military intelligence shows Kenya defense forces are using logistics as a weapon to win the war and sure, they are.
Al-Shabaab have ran away from the south and now are regrouping far north near the Ethiopian forces. Al-Shabaab has killed several Ethiopian troop but have been pushed out of Baidoa.
Of course, they are now worried and disorganized after losing leaders, equipment, and troops to KDF. This means KDF has done the dirty work for Ethiopian troops and AMISOM in Mogadishu.
