American Chronicle | Why Ethiopia must be sanctioned for violations of the Somalia Arms Embargo.

The Somalia Arms Embargo was put in place to safeguard the lives of innocent civilians and control the arms flow in Somalia. Unfortunately, despite the embargo, individuals and groups in neighboring states funneled arms into Somalia in support of the various warlords allied with them. The minority regime in Ethiopia remains the main arms embargo violator in the region.In violation of the Somali arms embargo, the minority regime in Ethiopia managed to scuttle efforts made by all three Transitional National Governments (TNG) in Somalia, and continues to arm various opposing factions in the country. The facts and its record in Somalia are well known to everyone in the international community, but for whatever reasons, they have been reluctant to call a spade a spade and take punitive actions against the belligerent regime. Ethiopia´s numerous violations of the Somali Arms Embargo are well documented. If the US-led international community really wanted to put an end to the bloodshed in Somalia, it could do so very easily. Unfortunately, it has decided to play realpolitik whilst the lives of thousands lay on the line.
