    "Progress" is still on after a year of nothingness. Meantime, the reality and fact is: However, in marqaan marfishes from Muuse Muqayil and his little trolls: 1991 will certainly be a very interesting year. 1992 will certainly be a very interesting year. 1993 will certainly be a very interesting year. 1994 will certainly be a very interesting year. 1995 will certainly be a very interesting year. 1996 will certainly be a very interesting year. 1997 will certainly be a very interesting year. 1998 will certainly be a very interesting year. ..... And more than 20 years later, still: 2020 will certainly be a very interesting year. 2021 will certainly be a very interesting year.

    One of the biggest problems currently facing the country is a lack of industrialised output and by extension foreign exchange. This chronic lack of foreign exchange is one of the reasons the government is so reliant on the so-called 'Beesha Lixaad' or International Community. This also means the government is unable to buy arms on the black market (to bypass the arms embargo) as countless state and non-state entities are able to do. When you live off donations, you must be able to show where those funds were spent. This means the armed forces stayed underdeveloped and the security situation remains insecure. One way out of this is to rapidly establish industries in a cheap and easy manner to generate the much needed dollars the government needs to rebuild the country and institutions. Notice, I say we need the industries first before we can begin rebuilding the country. It might sound counter-intuitive but allow me to continue. Firstly, the government needs to establish one large industrial complex on the outskirts of Mogadishu, somewhere in between Afgooye and Xamar. This industrial complex will have its own water and electricity supply as well as all the warehouses needed. The power station for this industrial complex will only supply power to the factories and buildings housed in the complex and will not be connected to the national grid. Likewise the water supply. The reason is simple, the government simply can't afford to give power and water to the country. The people can wait for the dollars to come before expecting social services. Neighbouring Ethiopia recently built an Industrial Complex on the outskirts of the capital for $200 million so we can assume this complex to cost around that figure. How will the government afford that? The answer is two-fold. We need a Somali Shilling budget and a Dollar Budget. The Somali Shilling budget will cover the cost of the local labour and any material that can be sourced locally. Where will the Somali Shillings come from? The government has two avenues: one is the Japanese system of Abenomics. Simply put, this is where the government prints bonds for a certain sum of money. The central bank then buys off the bonds from the Japanese government in exchange for Japanese Yen which the central bank simply prints (it has the power to do so and does). The government then uses the Japanese Yen for whatever purpose it needs and pays the interest on the bonds to the Central Bank when required. The Central Bank then deducts its costs from the income it receives from the government interest (literally admin costs and the cost of the printing, i.e. peanuts) and then transfers the profits back to the Japanese Treasury as the Japanese Government owns the central bank. You can see how the Japanese government massively benefits from this sleight of hand and why the Japanese economy has been doing so well under Abe. This system is currently being used by both parties in the Libyan civil war to fund their governments and armies. The other way is the Chinese way. When China needs Chinese Yuan to fund infrastructure development or local industries, it simply borrows from government owned banks who magically create the Chinese Yuan on their books and lend to the government at very very low interest rates (much much lower than normal commercial banks in the West). The government then builds the infrastructure it needs and then pays back the loan (over a very long term) from the proceeds (toll charges etc.) and after a while the government just writes off the debt and non-performing loans. This is how China has been able to afford all the amazing infrastructure that country has built in the last 20 years. Doesn't this cause inflation? No, no it doesn't. Despite monetising 50% of government debt the Japanese are still struggling with deflation, not inflation. As Keynes said, as long as there's demand printing money won't cause inflation. Read more about the Chinese and Japanese systems here: https://ellenbrown.com/2019/07/10/how-to-pay-for-it-all-an-option-the-candidates-missed/#more-14224 So the government has the Shillings to pay for the local labour and materials, but where will it get the dollars to pay for the foreign engineers and materials that will be required to build this industrial park? The answer is to introduce a new Development Tax on Xawaaladaha. The proceeds from this tax should go in a special Development Fund that will be exclusively used to fund this industrialisation and nothing else, come rain or shine, abaar iyo aaran, not a penny is to be spent on anything else, even on relief food. With billions coming into the country via remittances every year even a small 5% tax will easily pay for this project and many more.

    Secondly, once the industrial complex is established, the government should encourage local large businesses that have a proven success record (not start ups) to open Textile Factories in the industrial park. These local companies are then to enter into technology transfer agreements (not joint ventures) with large foreign large textile companies (plenty in China and Turkey). The foreign company will provide all the machinery and tools required by the factory, engineers and technicians to help run the factory and train local engineers and technicians, and most importantly marketing for the production of the factories. In return, the foreign company gets a yearly royalty (paid in dollars) and a percentage of all sales. Getting access to foreign markets should not be too difficult as Somalia is eligible for programmes such as the Everything But Arms programme that allows tariff free access for the exports of poor countries. We can also target African countries and the Middle East. This method is how Bangladesh was able to start its successful textile industry in the late 70s when a single company called Desh entered into such an agreement with a large Korean company called Daewoo. Today, Bangladesh earns billions from this industry. Read here for Bangladesh's remarkable story: https://www.jstor.org/stable/10.1086/661218?seq=1#metadata_info_tab_contents The government in return will give local companies special low cost long maturity loans to the local factories located in this industrial complex. This will help them with their start up costs and paying for wages etc (it will take the local companies time to learn how to run the factories efficiently and turn a profit). The government will also provide free rent, water and electricity and tax benefits for the first 5 years. It will also provide these companies priveleged access via special accounts through the Development Fund to get the dollars these companies need to pay for the technology licenses and royalties, and imports needed to manufacture the textiles. These companies based in the industrial park will have zero rated import tax and port duties on all goods that go into exports via a bonded warehouse system (basically in a local company spends 1 million shillings in import taxes and port duties on dyes from turkey, they will be reimbursed this money once they export the goods those dyes were made into and they provide a proof of export). In return for all this support, every company based in the industrial park will have to meet rigorous export targets. For example, after 1 year each company will have to export a certain figure (in dollars) and say 75% off all production output has to be destined for export, not the Somali market. The targets will change on a yearly basis as the local companies get better and better. Any company that fails to meet these stringet targets will lose all the perks they get (rent will "suddenly" go up, loans and taxes will become due, and the water and electricity company will begin charging at high rates). They will soon go out of business and will be bought out by the successful companies left (who will continue receiving all the perks as long as they keep meeting the targets). This prevents lacklustre 'fadhiid' companies continuing to benefit at the public's expense. Winners will be rewarded and losers culled. This is business not child's play. I call this system Siyaasadda Koolkoolinta Shirkadaha Cardunka ah. Koolkoolin means to nurture, and cardun is a small infant tree that still hasn't matured enough to produce fruits, it requires watering and protection from the wind and goats. Likewise infant industries, like our hypothetical textile industry here, requires support and protection from international competition until the industry matures and is able to withstand the competition. But these industries will only 'grow up' if you support them and protect them. The barometer to measure this growth are the export targets. This focus on exports avoids the pitfalls of Import Substitution Industrialisation as was seen in many developing countries in the 70s and 80s such as much of Africa and Latin America. This is known as Export Promotion. The only countries that did this were Japan, Korea, Taiwan, and nowadays China. You can see which countries were successful and which ones weren't. Once this is done and the companies start exporting, the dollars will begin flowing in. This is a vital period as the government must impose Foreign Exchange Controls to prevent these hard won dollars being squandered on luxury consumption by this new elite (or stashed abroad in houses in Dubai). These funds will then be recycled mostly into the companies in the industrial complex to upgrade their equipment, systems etc. to increase capacity, quality, and their share of the international market. Some funds will also be used for social programmes and national infrastructure. For those that disagree with this, remember these companies only became successful because they were given scarce funds that the Somali people were deprived of in their time of need. So they have no right to spend this wealth they 'earned' however they please.

    Thats a good idea Apophis but one doomed to fail. The reason for that is that the Taliban and Al-shabaab diffier in their ideological background. The Taliban is a traditionalist hanafi movemet with pashtun nationaism (pakhtunwali). The Al-shabaab is more inspired by the Salafi-jihadi narrative, meaing that it lacks Somali nationalism and does not even belive in the concept of a nation state. They belive that our religon condones a perperteful never ending wars with non muslims.While the Taliban rejected Al-qaedas efoorts to join them the Al-shabaab did so. Why? A somali culture with a inferority complex to arabs probably led to them join Al-qaeda despite that they would not get anthing by joining them. Splinter groups might defect or negotiate but will take a while for them to emerge.

    This picture below is the most important testing kit, which is the similar version of the RT-PCR molecule analyzer machine I was talking about in my previous post, in which you need to have it in-order to test it COVID-19. It's not that expensive, but you need at least few dozens of them (in terms of the density of our population in Somaliland). And Taiwan makes them and manufactures them abundantly in their millions. Of course, the China (i.e., PRC) also manufacture them. But they will only sell to you as urgent basis if WHO had already pre-cleared your purchase of them. And since we are not recognize State, it's unlikely that WHO will be telling the PRC to sell to us on a urgent basis in this trying time in which each nation is desperately trying to get its hand on these machines, which are portable and easy to use across all environmental and weather condition. However, we can still get it, even for free from Taiwan. And we should do that as soon as possible. And then spread it across the country by way of given a few dozens of this kind of machines to each regional hospital of the six regional's capital so that the "mobile testing team" (once they are establish) can use it to know the depth of the infection across the regions from a "sample data" and the likely variation there could be between regions.

    The Kenyans are in the midst of a debt crisis. In the past decade the country has spent billions of dollars from China on oversized and corrupt infrastructure projects which the country is currently struggling to pay for. Can you believe, importers are being forced to use the new train instead of trucks just to ensure some income to pay the railway debt. A few months ago, Uhuru went on an international dawarsi tour and I think he managed to get a few billion here and there to ensure the Chinese were paid for at least a few months. But the debt problem remains and the wider economy is screaming. The risk that China will seize a port in payment is real. And with the current coronavirus pandemic and the coming economic recession, Kenya might just default on its sovereign debt. In short, it really can't afford any military adventures whatsoever.

    Hi Folks, I am sure that you guys have heard the old saying that hold that: "There was a mountain that went into a much painful labor and then it was seen for it to give birth to a mouse" sort of saying. And the reason I said that is because I did recalled that old saw of a saying when I heard what the much talked about "Wadatashi of Puntland" turned out to be in the cold light of the day. Which is essentially a "glorified version of a damp squib". Moreover, in here attached below is the "final communique of that gab-fest of a grand talk", which in turn is essentially, as our Suldaanka had already alluded to in here, nothing that is higher than a miserable "collection of endless political complains" about FGS, and what beastly sort of thingy those self-serving folks of Villa Somalia have being to the Pirateland's political agenda. And yet be that as it may, they are still lamentably calling on the same freaking Villa Somalia to "treat" them gently and to be nice to them, as if really the folks who are determined to use at your expense of whatever measly "political muscles" they have on their little limps, can really be persuaded to treat you decently afterwards No that won't do. And it won't do since such absurd entreaties of calling others to be nice to you will only basically fall on deaf ears in so far as the Villa Somalia's political clique are concern. Hence, I reckon, that, these Pirate-land's political chaps should really have spared their wasted breath in here. Particularly if all they could actually amount to, in the cold of the day, was to beg (literally) the likes of Villa Somalia's political self-regarding non-entities to be "gentle" with them. Anyway, here is the sorry and the absurd entreaties of the political clique of Pirate-land with all of its "inglorious verbal sentences" being pronounced openly to the general public at large and to the Somalis political world as well. Hence, I am sure of it that some of the Pirateland's political clique and the elites of that sort who are in here of SOL will indeed blush excessively, or at least they will swallow hard with much difficulty, when they see finally as to how their much talked about "Grand Political Conference" seemed to actually have turned out to be so much of a "laughable entreaties" intended to beg and to plead for "other's political mercy". And in particular such entreaties of the kind that is "akin" to the notion of seeing a group of political chancers of the Piratical sort telling another another group of chancers, who in turn live off from what they could get it with the "borrowed muscle" of others (which is the definition of the Villa Somalia's clique): "Please, Sirs, be ever so gentle with us in out here of Pirate-land" (or words to that effect).

    This is very undiplomatic language for the EU. They usually mince their words. Or at least they hide their verbal uttering with "thick film of anodyne words". But now they are telling the way they see it. And they see that Villa Somalia is on a wrong road in these ways: 1 - They talked about how the Army that was build to fight the likes of Al-Shabaab in Lower and Middle Shabelle regions are out in a wild goose chasing in Gedo region, with the possibility of starting a war they will definitely lose against Kenya. Moreover the hidden implication is that since Gedo region is an actual border region where three states of Ethiopia/Kenya/Somalia meet, then they fear that such foolish agenda on the part of Villa Somalia may well start a war in which all three parties or States may found themselves be involve-in (or being drawn-in) in some fashion or the other. 2 - They talked about how Villa Somalia has yet to implement the "agreed security priority agenda", in which they had agreed with them. And that means since EU give lots of money to Somalia (for the debt relief, for economical developmental assistance and for security angle by paying the AU's soldiers) will in turn mean that the EU wants from Villa Somalia some form of accountability. Which is why they are talking about this: 3 - They are also going out of their way in saying that Somalia better think again if they currently believe that they could do whatever they want with what they are given. Since, they really are not in any position to take EU's money, its diplomatic support, and its state building assistance, and then turn around and start little silly wars in whichever region they may choose to do it. And this last point is what they are having in mind when they said this: You see that word there, namely "Mutual Accountability", which essentially means that we in the EU will make you be "accountable" to our support, small or large, and you will not do, nilly-willy, with that support of ours with whatever your "deluded fancy" may have convinced you to do it. It's a brutal (albeit coached or clothed-in with a "diplomatic highfalutin verbalism") way of saying to a needed nation in which you support, and in turn could not do without your support, that her action as of late is not what you had signed up for when you originally thought to help her out. And this is what Somalia seems to be reminded of now in here. Which is the reason the EU kept on mentioning in here the State building support, the debt-relief support, economical assistance support, and the security sector support, in which they give to Somalia. Which is a way of showing in words (and in litany version of it) the many ways in which you help someone who is not thinking straight. And you want that person to stop whatever they were doing wrong and get back into the old agreed agenda in which your help of them was based on it originally. Finally, lets see whether Villa Somalia will be able to read between the lines in here. Since the next thing that will follow from all this warning will be "action" of the kind that directly and specifically will effect all the areas in which the EU gives support to Somalia, particularly, if for some reason or the other, it's still the case that Villa Somalia keeps on ignoring these kind of diplomatic warnings from them.

    look kid I will give it to you straight... Somalis are f*cked up. They do not come from a civilisation (they have no documented history to tell them who they are) only a foreign religion written in a language not their own. Strange is it not? The religion they worship is of a foreign origin and not Somali? This is further proof that Somalis are a lost people with no map to guide them back to reality. They are wondering nomadic barbarians who converted to an Arab religion by force because Somali forebears were too weak to resist (people with civilisation usually resist invaders). So the racism and xenophobia you see from your fellow Somali is simply their inferiority complex expressing itself. They don't know how the world works (white supremacy) and are too dumb to know how dumb they are. This is were the pain comes from, they don't have the strength to at least be honest with themselves. Now people on this forum will claim something else but believe me I have studied Somalis very closely and they are extremely weak in the areas that matter most. So relax...

That is as pure as evil as anyone can get. No amount of sugarcoating or trying to sell 'we want whats best for Berbera... Bullcrap!!!'. Yes, it is not the best of deals, and rightly so, with all the hate and leg pulling from the failed politicians and people of Somalia (Proper) as well as those from Somaliland such as yourself whose hearts & minds are filled anything but good. We think the Berbera deal is best under the current circumstances that Somaliland finds itself. Not all the projects in the Berbera Deal is started yet. This is 30 year deal and not everything gets started in the first years. But there are significant projects in the works as we speak including Berbera Free Zone, Berbera Solar Grid, Berbera Port, Berbera Corridor upgrade. If there is any political entity in the Horn that has been consistent in its politics and stablility, that is Somaliland. I know your yarstick that you use when measuring performance for Somaliland is different to lets say others *CHeeseman**. But who else can claim a good 20 years of democratic elections, peace and stability. Mind you, no other country in the Horn comes close the openness and competitiveness of Somaliland's democracy.

    Aha, another failed political chancer joining in the rest of the "Awr-Kiraalayaal" in Mogadishu (i.e., from the likes of Dr Beyleh to Mr Maareeye to Mr Mahdi Gulleid). Who are the sort of folks who really know that they shan't at all be landing in anywhere of an inch of Somaliland, whilst they are carrying their "wretched blue flag", at least in so far as this side of eternity is concern. Hence, some one should seriously tell this guy that the easy money from Villa Somalia will be almost over in a year time. So he really better get going promptly to Mogadishu just to see what sort of "fistful of dollars" he in turn can indeed hustle out of from Villa Somalia before the end of this year. And for alleged "Midnimo", I know our SOL's janitor, the usual cowardly Gudhuu-boy around here, who gets to see his kin and kith being murdered in their teemingly beggars numbers of them in a freaking broad daylight to boot by Amxaaro's swarthy's soldiers in Baydhabo (so long as these hired-mercenaries soldiers tells him that they doing it for sake of "Somalia unity" or some such trite) will be the sort of the empty headed creature who believe this malarkey. But actually out there in Somaliland we have ended such cheap political nonsense back in 1991. And we did it with guns and with "manly balls" (something, apparently, he lacks so much of it). So lets allowed him to waffle on about it, since it makes no blind bit of difference at all to us in Somaliland.

    We have to use Abiy Axmed. Soomaaliya is not currently that strong. We will use him as long as it benefits us. Remember, he could have continued the destructive Sanaawi policies of iskudirida Soomaalida and periodically humiliating Soomaalis by inviting them to that infamous yellow chair in Adisababa. So far, Abiy Axmed has not openly interferred and intervened in siyaasadda Soomaaliya against dowladda dhexe. He had not invited madax ku sheeg maamul goboleed without dowladda dhexe permission. Sanadkii 1991 ayaa fursad na dhaaftay markuu Sanaawi qabsaday; he too was initially openly supportive a unity government of Soomaaliya until 1996. We hope we do not repeat that lost opportunity again.

Soomaalida waxa lagu ciyaaraya isla khidadaa. Inta badan 30kii sano ee la soo dhaafay Bad Cop waxa matalaysay Ethiopia, halka Good Cop matalasay Kenya. Hada Kikuuyoada ayaa Bad Cop kuu matalaysa ahalka Ethiopia Good Cop. Laakin waxba iskama badalin siyaasaddii iyo goal kii ay ka lahaayeen Somalida. Taa horta si fiican biyo iskaga daa daaji.

    Lol @ the term “ rejoice” If these upcoming elections later in the year really turn out to become a one man-one vote sort of affair, and people in different parts of the country get to vote for their own representatives, then not only will Las Caanood greatly rejoice but the whole nation of Somalia as well, for it shall indeed become a historic event and laudable achievement.

    US helps Somali commando force grow from battalion to brigade STUTTGART, Germany — U.S. Africa Command is aiding the buildup of a specialized commando brigade in Somalia that has emerged as a key force in the fight to reclaim territory held by al-Qaida-aligned insurgents. During a visit to Somalia this week by AFRICOM’s Gen. Thomas Waldhauser, talks with the country’s leadership centered on the progress of Somalia’s Danab (Lightning) Advanced Infantry Brigade, a military statement said. “We’ve learned the importance of factoring in cultural and region-specific considerations,” Waldhauser said in the statement. “We work closely with our Somali partners ensuring the composition of specific Danab companies is appropriate for the security sector where they’ll be employed.” When training of Danab commando units began several years ago, planners originally conceived a battalion-sized element. The effort has now expanded with a plan to build a 3,000-troop brigade spread out across six Somalia army sectors, according to AFRICOM. A Danab brigade headquarters operates about 70 miles north of Mogadishu at Camp Baledogle, where the U.S. military is expanding an airfield for operations. AFRICOM declined to detail the current troop level of the Danab forces or a timeline for when the brigade would be at full strength, citing force protection concerns. For AFRICOM, one of the challenges in Somalia — a clan-based society without a history of a functioning central government — is ensuring the security forces it trains are comprised of appropriate clan groups. “For example, it would be unwise to take a force from Jubaland and send them to Puntland to conduct operations as they may be seen as outsiders, which would not maximize effectiveness,” said Maj. Karl Wiest, an AFRICOM spokesman. Because AFRICOM’s Somali partners have prioritized “ensuring the right people are placed in the right sector, the Danab are largely perceived as effective and clan-neutral by the Somali people,” Wiest said. During the past two years, the commandos have fought to retake territory from al-Shabab, a militant group that for more than a decade has vied for control in Somalia. The Danab commandos, along with other parts of the Somali military and an international force known as the African Union Mission in Somalia, “continue to make incursions into territory previously held by al-Shabab,” AFRICOM said. The U.S. says the military effort is part of a broader approach focused on getting the Somali central government to more effectively deliver services, but the strategy faces complications since Somalia consistently ranks as one of the world’s most corrupt countries. Security analysts also have long cautioned that Somali society has a history of resisting outside attempts to impose Western-style order. Al-Shabab also has proven resilient. During the past three years, the U.S. has steadily intensified military operations in the country, with special operations troops serving as combat advisers. Somali forces have recently set up multiple combat outposts in the Lower Juba River Valley — a region that is frequently targeted by U.S. airstrikes — where they pushed Shabab fighters out of former strongholds. AFRICOM said about 1,000 previously displaced families have returned to their homes since 2017 as a result of the offensive. “We have seen incremental progress in Somalia,” Waldhauser said. “Our partners must continue to make progress in order to maintain positive momentum and maintain the hard-earned confidence of the Somali people.” The Pentagon says the U.S. now has about 500 troops in Somalia, where the pace of airstrikes has been escalating. Since 2017, AFRICOM has launched more than 100 airstrikes in Somalia, killing over 800 militants. The U.S. offensive is driven by concerns that if al-Shabab asserts more control in Somalia, the country could become a hub for jihadis and Western interests in the region might be threatened. Also, the AU Mission in Somalia is scheduled to withdraw from the country next year. The AU contingent has been instrumental in keeping al-Shabab at bay, and it is not yet clear whether Somali forces will be able to hold on to battlefield gains of recent years. “Somalia is critical to the security situation and the long-term stability of East Africa,” Waldhauser said. However, the stepped-up military campaign is drawing more scrutiny and calling into question an AFRICOM assertion that no civilians have been killed in any of its airstrikes. On Wednesday, Amnesty International released a report that said AFRICOM’s claims are false and that at least 14 civilians have died in five strikes analyzed by the watchdog group. “Military operations by Somali government, allied militia and foreign troops including (the African Union) and the US military against Al-Shabaab, continue to have a devastating effect on civilians,” Amnesty said in its report. AFRICOM denied the allegations. “It is in the interest of the terrorist group al-Shabaab to untruthfully claim civilian casualties,” AFRICOM said in response to the Amnesty report. “It is also in the interest of al-Shabaab to coerce community members to make untrue claims.” Xigasho
