Artículo y noticia de interés que rescato del Foro FAS (Foro que recomiendo leer):

Usuario Solgo: http://www.boards2go.com/boards/board.c ... 3&user=fas

Buenas, supongo que muchos si no todos seguís militaryphotos.net. Hoy uno de sus posts hablaba del Sahel, y de la implicación canadiense en la zona, brevemente. Os pongo el enlace a la noticia.

http://news.nationalpost.com/2011/07/13 ... id-africa/

para los que se aburran leyendo, brevemente creo que dice que se va a crear como un nuevo grupo u organización contra el terrorismo al margen de la ONU y que Canadá tendría un papel líder en la zona que corresponde al Sahel y el cuerno de Africa.


OTTAWA — Canada is set to play a leading role in a new anti-terror organization to be launched by President Barack Obama in New York this fall — the 10th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks on the city.

The Global Counter-terrorism Forum is the U.S. President’s initiative to create diplomatic alternatives to military interventions such as Iraq and Afghanistan and strengthen the international consensus in the fight against terror.

As part of the new effort, to be unveiled formally in late September, Canada will co-chair a working group seeking to prevent terrorism in the mid-African Sahel region, one of a number of such groups in the organization. The aim is to share information and improve co-operation in the prevention and prosecution of terrorism.

Representatives from nearly 40 countries met in Istanbul last April to draw up a draft political declaration and devise rules and procedures for the new secretariat, which will be based in Washington.

It will differ from the existing United Nations Counter-Terrorism Committee, in that it is expected it will have the resources to build capacity in areas like the Sahel and the Horn of Africa — for example by strengthening criminal prosecution systems and countering violent extremism among potential “homegrown” terrorists.

Neither the U.S. State Department nor the Department of Foreign Affairs would offer any comment on the new organization.

It is not clear whether Canada will increase its spending on anti-terrorism measures — it may simply divert existing money from its $8-million Counter-Terrorism Capacity Building program or from the $78-million Global Peace and Security Fund. The Sahara Desert region is already an area of extreme concern to Canada and its allies due to in-roads being made by al-Qaeda in countries like Algeria, Mauritania, Mali and Niger. In 2008, diplomats Robert Fowler and Louis Guay were kidnapped in Niger and held for 130 days. This year, the Canadian Special Operations Regiment from CFB Petawawa had soldiers in the region training African special forces troops.

Critics of the UN’s response to the threat of terrorism claim it lacks enforcement mechanisms and its actions are watered because of the number of competing political interests. The Counter-Terrorism Committee, for example, has no capacity to act directly and merely acts as a broker between states to encourage action. The new forum will likely be closer in format to the G8’s Counter-Terrorism Action Group, which co-ordinates donations from its member nations.

Stephen Harper, the Prime Minister, has been among the most vocal critics of the current UN system, going as far as to temporarily boycott the UN Conference on Disarmament to protest North Korea’s presidency.

Mr. Harper said recently Canada “will no longer simply go along to get along.”

But Alistair Millar, director of the New York-based Centre on Global Counter-terrorism Co-operation policy institute, said he does not believe Mr. Obama’s new initiative is aimed at undermining the UN. “They’ve made it clear they will work closely with the UN and help support UN efforts, even though it is not a UN endeavour. The U.S. still sees the benefit of the UN flag but I think there is a sense that the UN has very limited resources,” he said.

Officials in the United States have recently been emphasizing the need to address the root causes of terrorism and the “upstream” factors in violent extremism to prevent vulnerable groups from being recruited. Encouraged by the death of Osama bin Laden and the so-called Arab Spring, senior members of the Obama Administration have highlighted the need to “strengthen the multi-lateral architecture.”

Como dice el gran Elder, "Ole, otro éxito de Chacón y Jiménez.".

Y digo yo, los canadienses metiéndose hasta el fondo en nuestro patio trasero y nosotros no pasamos de acuerdos de seguridad con los países de la zona, encima tenemos una plataforma increíble como es Canarias para dar proyección a toda esa zona, y no sé por qué no estamos desplegados ya en la zona de una u otra forma.

Como diría en Facebook, ME GUSTA:

Post continues to aggressively pursue -- jointly with the United States Africa Command, Office of Counter Narco-Terrorism (AFRICOM/CNT) -- the installation of a robust maritime domain awareness, communications, and intelligence sharing platform in Cape Verde


Powerful Synergies Discovered: As this concept continued to evolve, synergies with other ongoing bilateral and multilateral counter-narcotics and MDA efforts were revealed. A joint U.S.-Spanish effort to provide MDA through improved land-based sensors led early on to asking key questions about how best to integrate allied GOCV agencies including the Judiciary Police, the Customs police, and the Maritime Police. A U.S. European Command (EUCOM) funded initiative to expand maritime Automated Identification System (AIS) technology to Cape Verde similarly touched on core Maritime and Fisheries Institute equities. GOCV enthusiasm for standing-up its new intelligence service (SIR) led to scrutiny of intelligence sharing protocols, privacy laws, and regulation and protection of state secrets. A U.S. Federal Bureau of Investigation funded effort to develop a digitized fingerprint database, and Judiciary Police efforts to develop a similar in-house database on criminal suspects contributed to the momentum. It quickly became clear to all that Cape Verde was potentially at a tipping point, in which a series of overlapping projects, if properly aligned, could be mutually reinforcing and result in a quantum leap forward in GOCV capabilities.

Visita del General Ward del AFRICOM a Rabat:

General Ward of Africa Command visited Rabat on December 30 to sign the Communications Interoperability and Security Memorandum of Agreement (CISMOA) and continued military cooperation

Solicitud de sobrevuelo de los EP3 sobre Marruecos para recolectar información sobre AQMI:

Turning to regional issues, General Ward asked
General Bennani how he saw the regional threat from Al
Qu,aida in the Lands of the Islamic Maghreb (AQIM) and
narcotics traffickers. Bennani responded that narcotics were
not making their way into Morocco. However, AQIM posed a
serious threat to countries like Mauritania and Mali that
could not counter the terrorists. General Bennani explained
that he was intimately familiar with Mauritania,s geography
and topography and that the country was not capable of
controlling its territory. Brigadier General Abdellah
Hamdoun, the Director of Military Intelligence, offered that
Mali lacked the means to counter AQIM. General Ward then
briefed General Bennani, Air Force Commander Major General
Ahmed Boutaleb and other general officers on the U.S. plan to
gather intelligence about AQIM in Mali and Mauritania and
requested overflight clearance for a U.S. EP-3 aircraft.
General Bennani responded positively, saying it was important
to box in AQIM. General Boutaleb added that the Air Force
and the General Staff would study the overflight request and
respond quickly
