    Two quotations from the same post. In order for people to unite, they need to have faith and trust in each other. Even a marriage between a man and his future wife cannot be successful unless there is something that unites them and faith & trust in each other is foundation for that success. There is no such thing as far as Hargeisa and Mogadishu are concerned. We have gambled once and we have been bitten bitterly. A believer should not be stung twice from the same hole. While other Somalis are on a 40 year wandering on the wilderness and chaos, Somalilanders have, despite a lot of obstacles (including Galbeed's like), achieved good things. It is a prove that we are on the right track.

    The political culture in Somaliland is an egalitarian one. Specially Beesha Dhexe. So for everyone from the unknown to the well known to have equal say and communicate their personal feelings or believes, it is a welcomed sign that the people are moving forward. This is why in Somaliland almost everything is openly discussed and nothing is hidden. The gov't is held to account, the ministers coming on TV explaining their side of the story. You will never see this type of open discussions of gov't ministers and opposition party engaging in lively political discourse about the goings on, anywhere else in the Somali regions. We know Mogadishu Khaire's moratorium on media engagement by his cabinet. We know Cheeseman, after almost 3 years, has never held an open questions interview. The same goes for Puntland where each Hagbad inheritor takes the enclave on a personal ride with no questions asked. So, all these public engagement, is music to my ears that the people are awake and taking part and shaping their future. What other Somalis take for granted, in Somaliland we don't. If we think the gov't is not on the right path, we tell it like it is without mincing words. And not wait until end of the tenor and call it 'what a bad leadersip it was' like Puntlanders do every 4years. Rather, you have to oppose what is wrong and support what is right every single day.

    "Sheegatadii-Shilinka-ku-Shaqeyneysay" ee halkan SOL ah ka shadqami jirtey tan maanta ah haku quus qaadato. Sababta oo ah "Sacad-Yonis" waa niman gar-qaata oo "Tol" u ah Somaliland. Oo aan marnaba cadow is uruursadey kayeeleynin in ay arintan Col. Caare u galiyaan "Shaad Villa Somalia" leedahay oo Soomaaliya laga soo shidaal siiyo. Waana kaas Chief-Aqil Mahamuuud Nuur oo ahaa ninkii raacay Col. Caare ee ahaa "Chief-Aqilka Sacad-Yonis" uu leeyahay arintii Somaliland ee aanu aheyn markaanu ka baxney dalka dad ayaa markiiba "Shaadh dowlad Soomaaliya" ay leedahay u galiyey. Taas ayaana keentay in uu Somaliland kusoo noqdo mar haddii Somaliland oo uu isagu yahay aaminsanaana, Col. Caare, ka baxay mabdi'iyan, markii laysla tagey Qardho. This is what "miserable sheegato" could never ever understand. And the reason I say this is that whatever "political difference" some folks in any given moment may have with Somaliland's government, what they will never do is to say we are out of Somaliland. And we are in with Villa Somalia. Hence, the moment it becomes apparent that some folks may be "inclined" to do that, and therefore go for the whole hog with Villa Somalia and with Somalia to boot, then the rest will naturally say: "We have no truck with Villa Somalia, for we never did and we surely aren't going to start that now". Which means you will have a situation like now whereby most who were with Col. Caare will simply return, one by one. Starting with the Col. Baxad. And now the Chief Aqil Mahamuud Nuur is back. And then the rest of the Col. Caare's foot-soldiers will follow the rest of them to home, henceforth. It's that simple really.

    Mr Oodweyne Salaan Sare Cami.. As they say pictures speak louder than words. One President is hiding from his people and the other is among his people. One president feels safe in his surroundings while the other is cowering inside an APC. One is guarded by Somali security forces and the other is guarded by AMISOM troops. One is behind a big gun, and the other has no weapons. Waa kaaf iyo kala dheeri. Nina dadkiisa ayuu ku kalsoonyahay nina waa laaji ka soo kicitimay Buffallo NY oo calooshiisa u shaqeysta ah kana werweraya inuu dhinto. Today is a sad day for all the canaasiir that love to hate Somaliland. Runtii laftay ka bukaan lakiin looga jimcin maayo. We are going to march onwards & upwards. I suspect after this tour the President of the Republic of Somaliland will go back to the drawing board and take steps that will strengthen our national unity.

    Galbeedi, Speaking about sharing the pie, how does your average Farax or Xalimo benefit from that? I never understood why Somalis argue if their minister is not in the government or not. As far as I know there is one MJ minister in the federal government, I don't see how his presence there is helping MJs or Puntland? Same goes for everyone. The ministers might get fat but not your average guy. We are focusing on the wrong thing. We need an actual government that can be hold accountable. How does Awdal benefit from a vice-president position in Hargeisa? Or even where Dahir Riyaale was there? Even among Habro, did your average HJ benefited Siiraanyo's reign. Those around him did but certainly not your average person in Burco. Of course, government should reflect people that govern but we must not kid ourselves so as to think any minister from any given tribe truly represents the interests of his tribe. We need to be forward thinking and come up with different system.

    Simple, really. For, firstly, you start up by treating their whole arguments with nothing less than contempt. Secondly, you do the opposite of every political and diplomatic move they make. Thirdly, on any issue that they hold dear, you see to it to nullify it from your end and make sure you give no concession on that. Fourth, you make sure any military moves they make to your side of the border they gets to be crush before their design on you even gets any further underway, like we are doing it nowadays to the Pirate-land's cowardly ninnies of Somalia. Fifth, you hold on to your independence as a ground that is non-negotiable, come hell or high water. And, finally, every tom-dick-and-harry, from the international community (IC) who ever lands in your territory must be made aware that you are Somaliland, right or wrong. Not the wretched and failed state of Somalia, that seems to be governed by a collection of a hired-mercenaries from Africa. And you further impress upon them that your "liberty" was hard won with the copious blood of your sons. And it took at least a decade of a duration to achieve it. Moreover, you inform them that you are more than happy, nay, eager, to start a fresh war in the horn-of-Africa (HoA) region, if these collection of hired political stooges in Somalia that are under the tutelage of the African's colonization scheme are so much minded to get another war going on again before they will accept an independent Somaliland of her own right. This is how you deal with eternally politically failed folks of the Koonfuria and their self-serving conceit. Got it now, mate?

    Today's opening ceremony at Berbera with Vice-President Seylici and the start of the port extension construction phase. Incidentally, I am hearing not a peep, not a nada, not a burp, from all those "naysayers", who said that day like today will never happen. And indeed have hold that such prospect should be forgotten about. And as to why that was the case? Well, of course, some bunker-dwelling political hustlers in out there in Mogadishu, who usual are the sort of the folks who hide there in most days, said it that the Berbera will not get day like this. And they even said whilst they were standing right in there in Mogadishu, knowing full well even at that time, of course, that they will be liable to be arrested on the spot were they to even, inadvertently, land in Berbera, by way of coming to the place with a commercial plane. Now, I could understand, some politicians sitting in Mogadishu saying such a miserable guff and doing it so to get himself a "good propaganda copy" as the "defender of some alleged political union". But to see grown-up men, who, some of them, are lat east half-educated in right here of SOL, falling for such a silly political scam actually beggars belief. Hence, I wanted this day so badly just to show these ninnies how wrong they were. And more importantly, how we Somalilanders actually believe every word we say or ever said about ourselves regardless the cost and regardless the duration it will take for us to get wherever we want to go, politically, or even in winning international investment for ourselves. And now since none of your "wretchedly and cowardly ninnies" are brave enough to show your "eggs-covered-mug-shot-faces", let this be an "unforgettable political lesson" to the lot of you in here. And that lesson is this: "......When it comes to Somaliland, her destiny, her mettle, her inner-belief in herself, spare yourself any more embarrassment about it. And say nothing of her......" Given that you lot know nothing of her and would not know it in a millions of years even if you go to school they teach what people, like Somaliland, who have a "granite principle" in their hearts could amount to if only they set their eyes on it.

    A very momentously good news, indeed. And speaking in these vein, I have "standing political bet" with all sort of political ninnies in right here of SOL. And the "bet" I have with them is their contention which in turned have alleged that no such development was going to take place in Berberra. And they did indeed hold it, that, no, the DP World will not develop "Berberra port" because some political non-entity in Villa Somalia said so. Subsequently, what is so shockingly lamentable is the fact that they actually believed that Villa Somalia's silly assertions. Given their political judgement of things are no more sophisticated (or even intellectually developed) than that of a mere failing kindergarten's kid in a bad day. Furthermore, now when this thing start happening in the next day or so, I want "these men" to turn up with their hands up and with their tails between their legs. And for good measure "offering" a no nonsense and fulsome concession about how they were always wrong about us. And wrong about how far we will go for our destiny, come high or hell or even high-water. These are the men I expect them to have the "honor" (that word again) just to concede, completely, with no ifs with no buts. Here is the roll-call chaps: Holac, Dahireeto, Galbeedi, Che, Cadnaan, MMA, Maakhir, Maurat. These are the chaps I want to hear from, lads. Lets see whether these "political ninnies" have a decency or the manliness to concede the "comprehensive and bone-crashing political defeat" they took it on the chin from the hands of Somaliland. And indeed acknowledge that they have lost the "comprehensive bet" that goes with it, in which they took against Somaliland. Specifically, the "bet" they took on the other side of the ledger, which was when they have hold that some "fictitious political chancers" locked up in Villa Somalia will have the means to actually stop "Berberra port" from being developed by the likes of the DP World. Lets wait and see what these defeated political ninnies are really made of in here.

    Old_Observer, It may be harsh judgement, but sometimes harsh truth needs to be spoken. Since 1991, the "Long-footers" have being running the show of the Somali region. And today we see they are at the same miserable political place they were in back in 1991. And that is the the sight of seeing that every passing Ethiopian's government can have its "pick-of-a-choice" of the latest "Somali stooge" they will then impose on the Somali region. No other region in Ethiopia (or any other Ethnic community in that country) will be so degraded as to be dealt with in this "harsh way" and in this day and age. Only Somalis, are apparently, this politically wretched. Leadership is earn by results only. Or is forfeited completely without it. And it seems that, our "Long-Footed-Cousins" have actually shown us that they care for nothing beyond running Jigjiga. And have no larger ambition of the kind even the smallest other ethnic communities of Ethiopia show that they have the burning for it and indeed the sheer desire to run the country as a whole, if only their numbers and their smartness will be good enough to carry them to all the way to the residency of the Ethiopian's Prime-Minister. Hence, if you can't hack it at the heat of the political kitchen that is the ever ferment politics of Ethiopia, then it's time to pass the "baton of the leadership" to some other Somali community. And they in turn ought to be a community that has the fire and the desire in the belly to make sure that in two (2) decades from now on, there should be no "Somali stooge" being ordered around and about in JigJiga by the latest passing Ethiopian's government from Addis-Ababa. And in fact there should be a Somali politician running the whole freaking political show from there in Addis-Ababa, ordering other Ethiopian's ethnic communities (to do his bidding) just as we currently gets to be ordered about by every passing ethnic community that somehow reaches the "pinnacle" that is the political office of country's top-post.

    Aha, US's mental institutions must really be in a dire straits (as it were). Particular if they are allowing this man to be at large in public. And of course, I really don't blame them, since such social provision was never the "ideological lodestar" of the Republican party that are in power in both side of the federal government. Hence, lets hope he wont just another tragic case of yet another Somali man, who become a bit unhinged in the western world, who then start seeing things that are not there, particularly the more he stares himself at the mirror, indeed. Furthermore, leaving aside for the fact that we are both from the same West Burco's Community, but I can actually say, that I know him, personally. Hence, here is me hoping that his love ones will really take him off the air. And give him the best medical attention he surely needs by the looks of things. And really the sad thing is to recall that he is well actually educated fellow from Stanford University in California with an MBA (to boot). And on top of that, he has a background in hedge-fund management (where he had a quite senior position in that world). And therefore, he could easily make a "financial killing" in the emerging market's hedge-fund indices, if only that he stops playing his ego on the Somali's televisions. And then get serious about things. And if he wants to be a "political player" in Somaliland, he should quit been a fool for Ali-Xaraare's farcical shows, and get back into Somaliland, in-order to challenge Mr Cirro for the Wadani's party ruler-ship. And if he wins that contest, then he can ready the Wadani party for the next year local and parliamentary election (2019). Which means build a "tribal coalition" under Wadani party in time for the next presidential election of 2022. Or even better, he could even start his own political party next year, since it's opening season of the party registration period, just before the local election. And this means, he quit "show-boating" next to Ali Xaraare for television's eye-balls. Head home, register his own" political association" in the anticipation of the local election. Proceed to challenge the three currently existing parties in the country. And work his butts off to ensure his party becomes one the three that will be the top three parties to "emerge" from the local election. And of course, the top three parties that will emerge from the local election will in turn be registered as the three national party that will contest both the parliamentary election in 2019, and the following presidential election of 2022. In other words, he has so many "political choices" that is open to him, that, I really don't know what on earth possess him to go down this absurd road.

    Somaliland: The Horn of Africa’s Breakaway State
  27. 4 points
    For seven years the Somaliland system of government was transformed as a business enterprise to loot the public purse, land, infrastructure , public buildings and houses, and every empty plot of land whether it is school property, parks or libraries. Every government office was used as a vehicle to fraudulently embazel the property of the public for personal benefits. Oil terminals, ports and public land were sold for pennies to the dollar. All the buyers need to do is offer few kickbacks and you could buy everyone and everything including ports, oil terminals, rich minerals from the mountains and about a dozen licenses for oil exploration. Most of those who stole the money including the former finance minister had left Somaliland and settled back to London. The man who supposed to watch the shop had cognitive illness (Dementia and old age due to stroke) which enabled his family members and the Jeegaan coalition to rob every thing. His inability to govern was apparent as early as 2011, yet critics of the leader and his administration were bought and silenced. Due to consecutive and successful elections help by the Rayaale administration, millions were provided to alleviate poverty and enhance capital projects. Also, they got a lion's share of the hundred of millions of dollars allocated by the international community for Somali relief and capacity building in the region. By promising to unite with the federal government in the near future, they got almost half of all aides allocated to Somalia from EU, US, Arab countries and Turkey. Unfortunately, all that money was looted and spent in huge villa's and buildings in Hargeisa. If you compare the so called Booli Qaran-- which was less than a hundred mansions built in and around Mogadishu in nineteen eighties by Siyaad Barre connected looters--this one is hundred times bigger Booli Qaran, and those who visited Hargeisa today are marveled the extensive looting and how the money is used to build mansions and buildings in Hargeisa. Yet, unemployment is 70% and the rural people are suffering, water is scarce everywhere and there is no plan to alleviate this issues. The rampant inflation felt by the poor and everyone in Somaliland is due partly by the excessive availability of huge money by the looters which are buying the few commodities that are available in the market. The commodities in the market are limited and there is no local production of these goods. Inflation occurs when demand in goods and services in an economy rises more rapidly than the economy's productive capacity. When the prices of food, clothing, housing, services and fuel rises, it will be felt by everyone except those who looted the public purse and have plenty of the unearned money. Another major cause of the inflation is the increased supply of money in the market. Almost every year, the Jeegaan government had printed hundred of billions of Somaliland Shillings and released to the market without proper economic policy. That is why you need a big dolly to carry one thousand dollars. They hired their own Jeegaan members across the civil service and allowed others to draw unearned salaries. The Siilaanyo palace alone had 120 full time employees plus a garrison of soldiers with 10% of the budget. Huge and rich nations do not even have that kind of workforce in the prime ministers office or the president. His wife had built two big hotels one in Mogadishu and one in Hargeisa. According to some researchers women embazel money more than their husbands and Somali women are not different. Now, welcome to the Jeegaan 2.0 . Hundreds of Millions of public and private money had been spent to elect Ina Biixi and his Jeegaan coalition. Everyone was was aware that Muuse could not pass neither the threshold needed to lead Somaliland nor become a respectable leader. C/raxman Cirro was a decent God fearing man who might have made few political mistakes, but the way he acted during the election showed that he was mature, good hearted man and his supporters wanted to show the people not a tough guy but a decent sensible guy who could unite the people. Unfortunately, the wrong guy became the leader and he is already sinking like a boat with big holes. What did he do for the last 30 days?. He tried to intimidate the youth by shaving their heads by force and issued gag orders to the media. This are minor issues but the big news everyone is hiding has taken place in Djibouti. Now it is apparent to everyone that the Jeegaan never planed to give up power no matter what. We know now that they have bought almost everyone including the election observers of the opposition parties. Not long ago, tribal elders were given " Cimaamad" or few hundred dollars. In this Jeegaan victory, Hundred of politicians, elders and brokers became rich during and after the election. Mohamed Aw Saeed of Som Cable has spent almost half a million dollar to buy one sub, sub clan of Awdal in order to sway the vote. SomCable, Djibouti and the changing of Somalia's 252 country code. If Russian money laundering and foreign banks were the catalyst that brought The Donald Trump business from bankruptcies in early 2000, it was Mohamed Aw Saeed who single handedly defeated Rayaale and brought now Muuse Biixi. I do not want to rehash how Ina Aw Saeed and Rayaale clashed which needs more space, but we will concentrate how this oligarch from Djibouti , who has both business and family connection to Cumar Gheelle family, is trying to make hundred of millions of dollar from the investment he spent on the Jeegaan fraud election. Som Cable owned by Aw Saeed was working for the last ten years to keep the monopoly of all cable, internet and telephone in Somaliland and is also planning to expand through Somalia. The other competitor is Telesom, a pioneer in telephone in all of Somalia from Zaylac, Puntland all the way to Mogadishu. Ahmed Siilaanyo denied the Telesome business plan to bring cable from Oman two years ago. That business deal eventually came to the shores of Somalia through Boosaaso which was opened last week by Farmaajo . Everyone knows that business monopoly is bad for the consumers and the public who should be given the choice of buying services from different companies in order to bring down prices. It is just a common sense. Now, in order to get back the millions he spent in the Jeegaan election, AW Saeed want to change the Somali telephone code of 252 to the Djibouti country code of 253. For the innocent public or what we call in the north " Gaas Dhagoole", this change of number was presented as Somaliland trying to be independent of Somalia and get it's own number which is free from Somali control. That means without lifting a finger or putting any huge infrastructure, Ina Aw Saeed want to make money for every single phone call made from around the world to Somaliland while sitting in his Djibouti office. Telesom is a company with large shareholders around the Somali region. I do not know the percentage, but in every region, the operators are local and they own a big share of the business. By the way the threat of the telecom companies to the Somali state is real and well known every where , and especially in the south. Another overriding reason is also, the anti Jeegaan people of Somaliland own shares in the Telesom company. Since the aim of the Jeegaan is to suck life out of everyone, and deny any economic gains that might challenge their monopoly in power, they are willing to do the unthinkable of denying economic prosperity to the other clans and sell the country to the highest bidder . Cumar Gheelle bites like a rat and then soothes the wound. In order to replace his uncle Hassan Guuleed ten years from late eighties , he allied himself with Menguistu of Ethiopia. While Hassan Guuleed tried to reconcile the Somalis, Geelle was serving first Mengistu and later Meles Zenawi till this day. THere were half a dozen men who were more senior or deserving to replace Guuleed, yet one by one , he either killed them, exiled them or put them in jail. No one can even whisper inside djibouti without making sure that no spy is listening. This year will be his twentieth year in power, yet for most Somalis the only dictator they keep cursing is Jaalle Siyaad. He was the chief cabinet of his uncle's government who was in charge of both internal security and intelligence. It was during this time that he cooperated with Mengistu to dismember Somalia and replace his uncle ten years after. He is shrewd politician and a gangster who knows how to play political games. Most of you do not know him, but as early as 1977, he was a member of the vice police who used to oversee the red district used by the French army. Since this place is a family blog, we will leave at that. Just like the TPLF, Kenyans and others who are taking advantage of the weak Somalia, Gheele is biting the weak Somali lion and soothes the wound at the same time. The Jeegaan is after money and power to loot the people and Geelle is one of the vehicles to achieve that goal. If we , the Somalis who understand culture , history and destiny ever come to power, Geelle, Ethiopia and others will back their boxes and leave the blessed republic of Somalia for good. The Jeegaan is begging Djibouti and others to restart the unproductive and useless Somali negotiations for nefarious or business interest reasons. They are not interested to heal the wound among brothers, but to further their strategy to gain market for their financiers and gain access for foreign aid. What would the federal government do about these oligarchs robbing the Somali people. Also, both Djibouti and Ethiopia had forced him to rethink the Dubai port and base issue. Since UAE funded Egyptian army arrived in Eritrea things went from theory to reality. There is no guarantee that the UAE controlled base could be used solely by the Emities alone.So far DP World had not done their side of the agreement and Djibouti and Ethiopia want to scrap the whole port deal. The Hungry Jeegaan foreign policy led by a soft speaking crook called Sacad Cali Shire cashed few million signing bonuses and gave away the whole port. The treasury is empty and the only thing that are doing lately is fire as many employees as possible until some foreign aid arrives. They discard the Somali area code for Djibouti to help SomCable, they scrap the port construction deal with Dubai. So, what people are wondering in this is , what does Somaliland get in return from these countries?. Is it a green light for war in Sool?, is it a recognition and military help? or to help him to oppress his people. Personally, I believe it is te later. Since opposition to Jeegaanta is getting bigger in Sanaag, Sool, Awdal, Togdheer and even Hargeisa, he needs the help of the Ethiopian regime to keep him in power.

    One holds a grand meeting like this in a city that you have 100% control over it. Where you guarantee the law & order yourself. I didn't mind the IGAD meeting because IGAD countries are in control of the city and they can do whatever they want. But to invite Islamic Countries and yet get permissions for them to enter the city from Xalane. That is shameful. Just imagine the horrors after arriving at the Airport and getting strip searched by a Ugandan female without headscarf.

    Suldaanka, They are silent because they are shocked. You see they actually believed their own bull-shits about Somalia being a "sovereign state" that can dictate things to Somaliland. Or that the world will stop this kind of investment going to Somaliland if they in turn make noises about it and even go to the United Nations Security Council (UNSC), as they have done it. But now they know the world doesn't believe a word of their own bull-shits, particularly about Mogadishu being a sovereign state over Hargeisa. Or at least they don't believe in the "actuality-of-an-action-sort-of-believe", as opposed to saying in lip-service sort of sense. In other words, Mogadishu, can claim what it wants to claim about Hargeisa. For the world will not stop you to make any claim you want. But when it comes to "action" to implement that alleged claim of yours, then the world will say a "fat no". And the fact the Somaliland Development Fund (SDF) has been increased, and even Denmark was yesterday in a meeting with the President Biixi just to talk to him as to how to increase that development fund despite the fact the Villa AMISOM wanted it to end is a "telling sign" of how the world separates what it says in "lip-service" sort of thing on one hand. And what "action" it will allow Villa Somalia to take in so far as the Hargeisa is concern. Again, the fact that the UNSC actually told Villa Somalia to get lost when they have complained about this "Berberra investment", and indeed bitterly complained about DP World, and whilst in turn the same UNSC told them to get lost in five (5) minutes flat rejection, should have been a "real-wake-up-call" for them. But it didn't come to pass for them at that time, at least as a "wake-up-call". However, today, they can see it with their own eyes of how a "laughingstock collection of cretins" they really are, and in fact they were even back then. And, incidentally, VOA's Somali section, the BBC's Somali section, even the Hiiraan Online, have all done a runner from reporting today's ceremony. It seems, the Koonfurians are very bitter about the fact of this day's doing in Hargeisa. And they are in such "emotional state" that they have decided not even to put it on their front-page of their website as a momentous news. But, then, no one should expect any sort of a "journalistic impartiality" or even an integrity of that sort from some Koonfurian's non-entities, even if they happened to work in places like VOA's Somali section or the BBC's Somali section. But, still, as they say: "......Qorax Soo Baxdey Baabacadaada Kuma Qarin Kartid....." (or words to that effect). This, shown below, coincidentally, is the Chairman of the DP World given the background information of this "Berbera investment project" in today's ceremony.

    Is this for real? Are sane Soomaalis defending tuugii weynaa, the Tigrey stooge Cabdi Ileey? I cannot believe this. Nothing, no one will be worse than the stooge's leadership in Soomaali Galbeed. He and his loyal Liyuu militia dantooda ayee fiirsanayaan, for they know what they had done to Reer Soomaali Galbeed in the dozen years years they mercilessly ruled. Xasuuqii, kufsigii, jirdilkii iyo barakicintii. It is better to be under the occupation of cadowga you know than kan kula dhashay haddana kula dhaqmaayo si ka saxariir badan Xabashada. Cabdi Ileey dad badan ayuu gaalshire ku aruuriee in the 12 years maanta markiisa waayee madaxa hasoo qooysto. His Tigrey masters won't save him, for they are as powerless as he is now. We can also see how desperate they are using their biggest stooge and his ruthless arxandaran militia for the final stand in order to weaken the new prime minister. I hope Cabi Axmed gives them a thorough beating because for the future wannabe stooges in Soomaali Galbeed ha arkaan their sycophancy will never save regardless how completely they followed for years. They will be discarded just as a used diaper.

    Hello Suldaanka, Thanks for the welcome, bro. I hope, if I hazard a guess in here, that, I didn't missed much other than the usual waffling political ninnies from that sea-thieving den of piratical iniquity talking up their racket of bravado in no end (as it were) against Somaliland. Even if we, on the other hand, at least in most days are liable to chase them from pillar to post and back again. And do all of that in our stride and still have a plenty of time to return for a just and deserving tea in the afternoon and for the usual Qat-session in most evening. So, I am sure their spleen has been as uselessly as it ever was around here during my absence. And, of course, I could also hazard another guess and say that our gibberish-spouting "Gudhuu-boy" (from that occupied territories of Bay and Bakool regions of Somalia) must have been in here during that time. And as usual he must have been talking his silly seven of this or six other nonsense of that about Somaliland, whilst of course, all along he may have been without a fail wrapping himself up with the blue flag just to make himself relevant in the cut-throat politics of the Somali peninsula. And, finally, I am sure I have missed our Gooni, who I could reckon that invariably he must have been seen around here of SOL wearing his "blue Diric" (donated to him, as it so happens, by our inestimable Qaali Barwaaqo), while to boot he on the other other hand could be seen to be sitting on his "Gambadh", in a crossed-leg manner, whilst at the same time cursing and gnashing his teeth against what he "termed" as the SNM. And tragically for him, he seems to be belaboring under the delusion that says such a futile "verbal gestures" (on his part) could amount to much against his "SNM enemies" (or against modern day Somaliland). Or he seems to think, as if such "spitting-to-the-wind" will make him and his clannish ilk any less of a "defeated lot" of the Somali peninsula than they already are. Notwithstanding, the present day Mr Cheeseman and his cowardly conduct of hiding behind under the "protection" of some wretched and hired African mercenaries, whilst he in turn skulk and sulk around in Villa Somalia, calling himself, shamelessly, considering the situation he find himself in now, an alleged president of Somalia. So, all told, it seems that, it just by the by, that I may not have missed much around here of SOL. Although, I am sure of it that between you, Xaaji-Xunjuf, Amigo, Qaali-Barwaaqo, and Tallaabo, were indeed a "strong" enough of verbally skilled contingents who in turn kept a tight leash (or a vise grip, as it were) on the "collective necks" of Somaliland's enemies, particularly anyone who get out of line around here of SOL. But, still I am back on the beat (as it were) with a nice "verbal lash" (very much oiled and rested) and readied up to be let loose onto our enemies's back. And of course, the cowardly pirates who in turn make up for what they lack in manly honor with endless stream of eye-tiring (and mind-taxing) bravado will probably be first off the gates who will be the sort of politically degenerate ilk who in turn will be the first to get their fill of the lash from my end of the business around here of SOL henceforth now that I am back on the "saddle" (as it were). Lets hope they will get in line in an orderly fashion and each shall take a number and wait rather patiently their turn of the "lashing proceeding" that will be commencing soon, I gather.

    I always wondered what sort of "dhacdhac" corrupt money the god-fearing Minister of Religion would get from his department. Now we know there is a lucrative deal called "Hajj" and the president threw the first punch to knock out opponent. Every wasaarad has a cash cow. Someone was telling me there is a wasaarad that deals with scholarships and that "business" brings in lots of cash. I was reading the other day there is one that only deals with business licenses and certain clans prefer it over more prestigious ones, as it is known to be another cash cow. Meesha waa la kala xirtay, saxiibayaal.

    I see no independence. When there are no more African mercenaries guarding Villa Somalia and no foreign powers manipulating Somalia's internal affairs, then I will inshaallah send my congratulations to koonfuria.

    It is very easy for Western educated arm-chair online warriors to say let us do this and that against UAE, but the hundreds of thousands of Somali business owners whose livelihood depends on trade with the Dubai and UAE, it is a disaster to hear this. Let us not be arrogant and play ego games with our people. The UAE refusing to give visas to Somalis is very very bad for the Somali community. The Somali government must fix this.

    This was indeed the equivalent of applying for a job that whether you are qualified or not is not even considered and the employee instead reaches out for the "delete" button as soon as they realised your name or locality do not match what they were looking for.

    The SNM had no official position on the issue of independence. However, there were obviously the believe that the 1960s Union was not fair and needed to be reviewed. Any hope for revival of the 1960s union was dashed when, shortly after the overthrow of the dictator, the Mogadishu leaders declared their own government without consulting or involvment of the SNM leaders. Mogadishu folks were more interested in looting and pillaging the state organs rather than help revive the country from the brinks. That was the straw that broke any hope of a Unity's back. And as they say the rest is history.

    Suldaanka, Our friend, Mr Galbeedi, from Alberta of Canada, is getting a bitter by each passing day. Particularly, at the sight of seeing that all of his hopes of wishing that one day Somaliland will be turning into a "ash-heap of history" (which is what he prays for it at least a five times a day for it) is unlikely to materialize any time soon. Hence, we just have to put up with his daily "frothing-at-the-mouth" towards Somaliland. For, he reminds me a sort of fellow, who, when asked as to why did he released such an "odiously-smelling-fart" to the direction of man he didn't much like, retort back that one should't really underestimate the "lethality" of a well-aimed and targeted "fart". Since he said such a "gastrointestinal flatulence" has the potential to disarmed and destroy "one's enemies olfactory's defenses" (as it were). So see to it to cut some slack to our friend, Mr Galbeedi, in here. For I will have you know that he is fighting for his "political corner" or "ideological conviction" with a "lethally-high-grade of intestinal flatulence", aimed squarely at Somaliland's collective noses (as it were). And since that is his last hope of genuinely "harming" Somaliland, then we should quietly go about, at least, in his "vicinity" with a "well-perfumed-handkerchief" to hand, just to be on the safe side things (as it were).

    In the old days, Galbeedi used to hide his true self under the pseudo "My insider sources told me" and write as a 3rd Person. Nowadays, he is the first person fortune teller. Hadii sidan ku sii socdo, we have Salaax number 2 on the forums.
