    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.

    Projects that will be finalised This year. 1. Burco - Ceerigaabo Road - 300 km of fully locally funded paved road will be finished in September 2020. This road has already cut the travel time between Burco and Ceerigaabo by half. People now can have their breakfast in Hargeisa and have lunch in Ceerigaabo. A tremendous improvement. 2. Berbera corridor Road - 200km modern highway that will connect Berbera to the trading town of Togwachale will be completed by October this year. 3. Berbera Port expansion - the new 400m Berbera Port Container Terminal will be completed by October this year 4. Berbera International Airport - the newly refurbished with new 4km runway, will be opened later in the year. Projects that will be turning sod in 2020 1. Hargeisa - Burco Road via Oodweine, funded by African Development Bank and Somaliland Government, this 180km hinterland road will cut travel time between Hargeisa and Burco by 1/2. The current road via Berbera is total length 300km. The new road via Oodweine will be 180km. Travellers will be saving over 100km of fuel expense and a lot of time. This road will also help cut time to far Eastern regions i.e. time to reach Ceerigaabo will be further cut. 2. Djibouti - Jigjiga Road via Borama, also Funded by Africa Development Bank, this is 250km Road that will link Djibouti and Jigjiga passing through Borama. 3. Drill babe Drill - The first Oil well of many will get drilled this year. 4. Ceerigaabo - Mait Road - a 30km steep downhill/uphill road that winds down through Daallo Mountains and crosses Tabca Pass. This road will cut travel time to and from coastal communities. 5. Mait Fishing Port - A port that will serve as an economic hub for Sanaag regions to tab into the rich fishing seas on its shore.

    Galbeedi, Suldaanka, iyo Xerta kale, Markaan Xamar joogey ee aan jaamacadda lafoole ku jirey ayaan dharka waxaan ka meydhan jirey nin beesha "Unukaa-leh-goofley-Abgaal-ah", oo dharka gacanta ku meydhi jirey. Gaar ahaan ardeyda lafoole ku jirtey oo jamaacadda agteeda ayuu ku lahaa doobi lacag uu ka qaadan jirey oo dharka ayuu kuu meydhi jirey halkaas, dabadeedna wuu feerayn jirey, sida surwaaladda iyo shaadhadhka. Markaas kuwayaga reer waqooyiga ah ee jaamacadda lafoole ku jirey ayuu lacag ka urursan jirey oo ka fara-qabsan jirey, ileyn dadka kale ee magaaladda Xamar deganaa ee Jaamacadda ku jirey ee ay guryahooduna ay ku yaaleen magaaladda, dharkooda halkaas ayey ku soo meydhan jireene. Maalin maal-maha ka mid ah ayaan ugu imid "doobigisii" aniga oo dhar badan jiidaya si aan u idhaahdo dharkan ii maydh oo dabadeedna ii feeree, qiimo fiicana iigu samee, mar hadaan ahay iskaabulo (i.e, soolane) jaamacad ku jira. Markaas ayaan arkey isaga oo "shirib" ku heeleynaya oo shaqada iyo dharka uu meydhayey ku wada heeladaas. Markaas ayaan ku idhi waa maxay waxan aad akhrineyso ee aad ku dhawaaqeyso. Markaas ayuu yidhi: "Arey Qaldaan Aheeydaa, Mugoo Ma Fahmin Miyaa?" Markaas baan ku idhi waar yaahe waxan aad ku hadleyso garan maaye ii sheeg waxa aad ku daldalmeyso waxa ay yihiin. Markaas ayuu yidhi, "shirib" aa la dhahaa kan. Dabadeedna waxa aan idhi dee waayehee tafsiirkiisa isii. Markaas buu yidhi kan waxa la dhahaa: "Xamar-na Xisaab, Xaradheera-na Xoog". Dabadeedna waxa aan ku idhi ii macnee oo ii sheeg naxwaxa iyo waxa loola jeedo. Markaasu ayuu yidhi, Xamar dowlad baa ka dhisan (oo markaas waxa ay ku beegan tahay badhtamihii 1980s) oo xisaab iyo kala bax sharci ayaa yaala. Xaradheera-na wixii yidhi waa meel xoog lagu kala baxo. Markaas ayaan idhi yaa Xaradheere dega, reero ahaan. Dabadeedna wuxuu yidhi, "unuka iyo ILjeex" aa daga. Taas "midhaha" ah ee "shiribkiisii" ku jirey ee ahaa: "Xamar-na Xisaab, Xaradheera-na Xoog" ayaan soo xusuustaa markasta oo aan arko beesha Iljeex (i.e., HG) iyo ciyaartooda siyaasadeed ee aan dhamaadka laheyn.

    Khayre has failed. Even a child knows that this Sufi outlaw was hungry for power. He knew his rule was over if elections took place in Galmudug. Farmaajo is also pushing a well known " Budhcad Badeed" named Qoor Qoor as the future leader. The best option is for Khayre and company to swallow their pride, accept defeat and keep Xaaf to rule until a real reconciliation takes place in Galmudug. If he keep insisting on his failed policy, Khayre will create three presidents within the three main sub clans of GAlmudug. Nin Saaxiibkay ah ayaa yidhi isagoo kaftamaya, " Reer Dayniile ayaa maamul HG u Samaynaya waxay ahayd riyo beena".

    The cutting and biting "irony" of seeing a man who his teeming kith and kin from Bay and Bakool regions who were known throughout the Somali peninsula as the hapless denizens of the "street-beggars" sort, talking about other folks being "rubbish" (or being acquainted with rubbish), is really a mighty sight to behold, really. After all, the "very definition" of "street begging" is someone who is very familiar with, or at least is comfortable with the "contemptible idea" of "making a living" (by way of seeking alms) from any "detritus-strewn-streets", or from any "rubbish-piled alleyways" of any city the world over in which you can think of it. Hence, as Somalis says: "Nin waliba wuxuu yahay ayuu ku moodaa". Taasna intaas ayaan ka odhanayaa. As for others "Neo-Kacaanist" (or as I like to call them, the old "defeated lot" of the Somali peninsula) are concern. In particularly like this Mr Culey chap and the other fellow by the name of Mr Ciyaar-jecel, all one can say to them is that it's pity that is all they are capable of doing it in here. Which in essence is very similar to what the then legendary Mr Salaan Carabey once said it to a particular Ina-Gumeed sort of a fellow of their kind of ilk. And what he said was: "......Hadaad hiil hinaastey aadse itaal u weydey, ma afkaad ku ciil-bixi, ileyn cidlaad ka hanjabeysaaye....." *************** I see that Ina-Gumeed sniffling ninny like you is still at it in waffling with odious gibberish at their worse of it around in here of SOL. Pity really. Given that you have not much improved with time. Well, as they say, a "cowardly low-born non-entities" like you are not only a "dime-dozen" in the Somali peninsula. But they are "destined" to be so that way. Hence, I shan't expect to see much better fist of an effort from the likes of you from here on out, I am afraid. So, carry on kiddo. ************ Suldaanka And Barwaaqo, Ilmaadeerayaal, salaan-sare. Midda kale sidaad aragteen hadhaagii f-aqashta ayaa ciil iyo cadho heysa darteed isku qarinaya qiiq iyo hadal tiris ay isleeyihiin ceebta heysata saaqidkii siyaasadda Soomaaliya ee Ina-Farmaajo, dadka reer-Muqdishu kaga sii jeediya. Markaas, waa naxli hadlayaan.

    It won't do much for the average Somali. All it does is allow Somalia's corrupt government to borrow more money so that corrupt politicians can finally get very rich. It is a gimmick.

    In all seriousness, the tragedy of Somalis is our small-mindedness. Men like Axmed Gurey, Sayidka, Sheikh Barsane and Nasiib Buundo fought in the name of Islam or in the name of their Somalis and fought against common. And history shows and no one Maryooley can deny, the armies they commanded hail from all Somalis. We can question their methods but their goals were clear. Their history is Somali history!

    ^^** That is a good news indeed. Well, on the laughter side of things, I am kind of waiting for the hapless political clique in Villa Somalia to start writing their usual "complaining letters" to the UNSC and to even write to the Singaporean's government about this particularly company investing in Somaliland. After all, that is all they are capable of doing under any circumstances. They are not in a position to stop Somaliland. They are not in a position to stop others to invest in her country. So all they are left with it is to cry "uncle" to the UNSC and to the international community (IC) about what Somaliland is doing, as if the same "powers-that-be" in the international community (IC) that keeps them on "life-support" will say to them that, yeah, sure, we will stop Somaliland's getting ahead, economically and developmentally. What wretched clique they are in out there in Villa Somalia, actually beggars belief.

    Che, Waryaa, Fuley Ina-Gumeed, oo waliba hadhkiisa ka cararow sida tolkaa "dhadig dh-abacayo", aan kuu sheegee waxba lagaa wediin weydiin maayo taariikhda SNM iyo mid Somaliland leedahayba.

And just in case you are wondering how to deal with being a "wretchedly sniffling clique" who are the "historical defeated lot" of the Somali peninsula, here is the "historical picture" of the famous day of back then of 6 of April of 1981 and the precise moment in which the inauguration of SNM was actually proclaimed in a press-conference held in a London Hotel by the five (5) men who created it, who were as follows: 1- Eng. Mr Maxamed Xaashi Cilmi, 2- Ambassador Mr Axmed Ismaciil Cabdi (Duqsi). 3- Professor Cabdi salaan Yaasiin, 4- Mr Xasan Aadan Wadaadiid, 5- Mr Siciid Cabdilaahi Cigaal.

    Che, Well, I never knew that such a "historical reality" of what the then SNM have wrought in that year of 1988, and how that was an "inspiration" to the Eritreans in their struggle of the time with Ethiopian's dictator, would be something that bring our Che into seeing red mist, indeed. Moreover, the Eritrean's themselves have actually said it so many times that the SNM were an inspiration, or at least it gave them a morale boast. How so? Well, you may not know it, but Mr Mengistu Haile Mariam and Gen. Siyad Barre had a "mutually re-reinforcing problem", whereby each supported the other's one's internal insurgency. And the fact was that by 1988 they had both agreed not to support those insurgencies of each other's country. Of course, that meant that both TPLF and EPLF were most likely headed to be turf-out of Mogadishu by the time SNM attack in that year of 1988. Furthermore, when that attack of the SNM took place in 1988, Gen. Siyad Barre was actually attending an OAU's meeting in Addis-Ababa, and he immediately felt that Mr Mengistu have indeed "doubled-crossed" him. So the end result of it when he returned back to Mogadishu was that he allowed the likes of TPLF and EPLF to continue to get whatever meager support they were getting from him. Hence, that meant that the SNM's attack of 1988 helped the Eritreans in two folds or at least in two ways. 1- Gen. Siyad Barre have cancelled the imminent departure from Mogadishu of these Ethiopian's insurgencies due to the fact that he was thinking that Mr Mengistu had betrayed him by not stopping the SNM's insurgency attacking his regime's forces in the North. So he decided to extend the stay of both the TPLF and the Eritreans in Mogadishu, in-order that they can continue to wage both of their insurgencies back in the old Ethiopia. Whilst at the same time they will still be getting some kind of a "diplomatic cover" in Mogadishu from his regime. 2- The attack of 1988 actually also meant that the then SNM have shown how daring of an attack can actually unsettled entrenched military position of a dictatorship. Which by logical extension means, the Eritrean can also see how they can mount such attack. Particularly, by way of "besieging" the forces of the Ethiopian's regime in the big Eritrean's cities. Of course, this kind of "insurgency sieges" of big cities was actually what the then SNM have shown how to do it against Gen. Siyad's forces that were then "occupying" the Northern part of the country. So all in all, our Suldaanka, was spot on there. It's just pity that you haven't read enough of Somali history to know exactly of what he was getting at. Or perhaps you know your History so well. And therefore the reason you didn't like the "inference" towards the then SNM in which he was making up there has largely to do with the fact that the only "historical inference" in which Eritreans (or anyone else for that matter) could ever learn from the discredited SSDF is how to be "cowardly runners", who in turn never saw any battlefield they never felt the deep urge to legged away from it. Hence, such a "glorious history" of the then SNM was all too "painful" for you to contemplate on. Particularly knowing the kind of "cowardly disposition" in which your clan's SSDF outfit were known for throughout the recent Somali history.

    Guess who the Reer Koonfurku hate most these days? It is not Ethiopia, in fact they are in bed with the Xabashi, their President is happily doesn't mind being the Escort for Dr. Abiye Ahmed. It is not Kenya either, because you can see how much they tolerated Kenya's unwarranted naked attacks, they were turning their cheeks everytime they get slapped on the other cheek. And definitely, it is not Eritrea, Uganda, Burundi or all those. Guess which country is their number one enemy. It is United Arab Emirates and the United Kingdom. Now using the old Algebraic formula of elimination. it is not UK or United Arab Emirates per say either. It is in fact, Somaliland. Now you know, Reer Koonfurka Xabashi wa necebnay... this or that. It is none of that.

    Build the road Kililka Somaliland that will bring together 10 million Somalis and other neighbors Don't panic, don't even bother to think regarding the show dog and pony for what goes in HoA. Never buy into the most abused words in the HoA today -regional integration -lol. Except for the road, port, common security..everything else is empty talk. With Ghelleh just talk through third person and maybe at weddings and heaven forbid burials of common friend or prominent person, never with dog and pony show kind of trips and visits. The sooner you finish the big projects the sooner you can approach Turkish, India...not China, Russia, Iran....those are too toxic at this time. Even India, Britain, Turkish are dangerous as America is pressuring them to be solely under its feet, but as small fish you can say oh I was simply swimming and somehow the ocean took me there. I am a poor guy no GPS of my own. This road, port, dry port project may prove to be the most important project for the ages with far reaching consequences. It might even ensure that you will never have big security problem from both Kililka and Djibouti which means most of your borders can be guarded by locals and few militia locals, nothing to spend.

    Suldaanka And Barwaaqo, It seems as I had expected Mr Cheeseman had in effect "cave-in", although, both Mr Abby Ahmed and Mr Uhuru Kenyatta were smart enough not ask of him to put things in a "clear letters of surrender" just to satisfy their power over him. But in diplomacy, usually the things that are "silent" in deliberate way are actually the things that are far more deafening in their scream of "importance". And by that I mean you really need to read carefully (or examine closely) the Tweet of Mr Abby Ahmed in which both of you have quoted in here, particularly this bit that says the following: And I quote: "As an outcome both agreed to work towards peace & to take measures in addressing particular issues that escalated the tensions" (unquote) In here you can see that the notion of saying "to take measures" in effect invites both parties to de-escalate the tension, which means it's surreptitiously suggesting that the court case must be "vacated" at best. Or failing that then both parties must take appropriate measures to "de-emphasize" the legal side of the matter along the line of Somalia not pursuing actively for a judgement to come out forth from the court. In other words, if you do not want a court to make a ruling on a case in which you have brought it before it, you can do this in two ways. Firstly, you can agree for the case to be "vacated" from the dock and therefore you ask your lawyer to tell the court to close the case, since you are no longer interesting in a defined judgement from the court to be issued. Or failing that, you can simply slow-down your active pursuit of the matter by way of not asking your lawyer to keep on insisting that matters must be resolve speedily. And you simply allow the judge who is presiding over the matter to forget about your case. Or to put it at the back of the cases in which he (or she) is dealing with. Hence, such later tactics will allow the case to "die on the vine" (as it were). And that is most likely what Mr Cheeseman has agreed to it. Particularly, in the sense of not taking the case out of the court (for he will be crucified, politically). But at the same time by simply allowing matters to be in "limbo" at the court without Somalia actively pursuing a "judgement" from the court, will in turn allow him to reach a "working deal" with Mr Kenyatta in-terms of how to "divide-up" any loot that can be had from those disputed areas of the sea. Or perhaps quietly he can suggest to the court that both parties prefer matters to be dealt with in a private manner between them without the court bothering to "deliver" any judgement of any kind, which in turn will mean the court (ICJ) will then be happy to oblige, indeed. So that way the case will simply die on a "suspension" whilst at the same time the parties to the legal quarrel (in this case Somalia vs. Kenya) will pretend as if nothing is amiss in here. And for good measure they will get on with the attempt of finding out some other kind of "out-side-of-the-court-resolution" in which both parties can profit from it. This "later tactics" is as old as the court system itself. Particularly in the sense of never taking the case out of the court (for it's too embarrassing for all concern parties) whilst at the same time not actively pursuing any decision from the court to be delivered just suit them to a tee, indeed.. Moreover, so many nations and various "international entities", such as corporations and others, around the world who have legal cases against each other practice this form of "legal nod and wink", whereby both parties will avoid the "sheer embarrassment" of closing a "contentious case" that is before the court. Whilst at the same time doing everything they can for that case to simply die on the dock of the court-room without any judgement being made for that case. And that means, both parties will agree to use that old "metaphor" of "leaving a sleeping dogs where they lay" (so to speak). I suspect this is the convenient "formula" in which Mr Abby Ahmed, Mr Uhuru Kenyatta and Mr Cheeseman, have agreed on together in here. We shall see soon enough from the Kenyan's side of things of how they read what was agreed on in that meeting. Given that Villa Somalia will never tell it straight to Somalis in-terms of what they have agreed on in here.

    This has become legend or is so taken for truth from so much repetition. Nothing is further from Truth. Next to Djibouti Somaliland is actually the most Somali when it comes to Ethiopia. So much false information we carry. Example: USC folks are considered most anti-Ethiopia. I always laugh when I hear almost all people peddling this lie. Among the rebel organizations USC was so close to Mengistu, Ethiopia paid its own money, sent two officials to bring Aidiid from India to lead USC. The only purpose was to counter balance against Somaliland, since SSDF was suspect as Mengistu had information of their contacts with WSLF/ONLF and Tigray. Who called Ethiopia after 91 to Somalia. The person was General Morgan the group take your pick. Ethiopia did not vanguish Aidiid from SW since they were Mengistu people, vanguished them after they and their opponents burned food storage. That was the incident as to why Ethiopia evicted Aidiid and the other groups (no fighting left themselves). What did the warlords in Mugadishu do when ICU started. They set up anti-terrorist alliance. Who did they call first. Ethiopia. Meles was never close with Somaliland other than business and education for Somalilanders in Ethiopia. ONLF: Djibouti, Somaliland and Puntland told ONLF that they cannot use as base to fight against Ethiopia. Somaliland gave them 6 months. Djibouti and Puntland wanted ONLF to stop using them as base immediately. Anyone can confirm this with ONLF leadership of the time. etc.. The truth or facts show the opposite of the false belief most people have.

    Now To a Brief Discursive Details. Those of you who are of young age may not know much of Somali history (or may not even care that much of it). But the concept of "Faqash Ideology" you keep on hearing from the likes of me intoning on about it doesn't actually denote a "clan name". But rather it's a "political concept" that indeed defines a "State's power ideology". What I mean by that is that if you take the example of Syria, it has a similar "Faqash Ideology" in action in which you will able to observe there. It's call a pure form of "Patrimonial State Ideology", which says a leader (or basically the dictator) and his immediate family has the uncontested right to own the freaking country. And beyond that he has the right to hire a "teeming loyal foot-soldiers" in-order to upheld his dictatorship through his clan, as the case was with Gen. Afweyne. Or he will have the right to raise his "enforcing army" through his particular religious sect, as the case was (and still is) with Assad's dictatorship with their Syria's version "Faqash Ideology" being seen in action there. Which is, as I said it a State's power ideology that will actually have no "restraining guardrail", or even social remorse from the very notion of destroying a whole nation if that nation somehow refuses to be "owned" like so much of a "glorified chattel" or as a "lucrative property" by a single dictator and his family, as the case can be seen from what has happened, rather tragically, to that much abused State of Arab Republic of Syria. Understand that and you will finally see how wider the notion of "Faqash Ideology" could literally encompass across different nations and across time. Since, it has many guises, names, and it's easily applicable (as a organizing principle) to nations as diverse as that of Iraq under Saddam, Libya under Qaddafi, Syria under Al-Assad family, and finally, Somalia under Gen. Afweyne. Moreover I suspect we may see Djibouti go down that route. And by that I mean that although up to now Mr IOG seems to have been clever enough to "hide" the ugly side of seeing a whole nation call Djibouti been "tailor-made" to be "owned in perpetuity" as a "property" by a single family (like Syria under Assad's family) which is what Djibouti really is gearing up to be with lots of "distracting facade"to which to hide that "truth", but at the moment that "point of clarity" for Djibouti is not now yet at hand. However that moment will come when we see who Mr IOG is likely to have "chosen" to be his successor (after he had groomed him most likely) so that he wishes for him to take over from him. Hence at that moment his "true color" of believing a Djiboutian's version of "Faqash Ideology" will manifest itself openly before the public of that nation. Particularly, if he, like the late Mr Al-Assad Senior, decides that his own his blood (mostly his son) should start "owning" Djibouti as a country and as a nation after he passes away. Consequently, at that point we will see the true implication of what is in store for Djibouti. And it will be a truly horrendous political prospect, really, in any which way you dice it. So in a nutshell "Faqash Ideology" is actually an international state ideology (at least in-terms of its conceptual frame-work of understanding what it should entail for the whole nation in which such ideology may have been applied to it). It has been in existence ever since man learned how to organize himself into communities and political polities, and then proceeded to ascertain how power of that duly formed community should be exercise. Who should do or carry out those "acts of exercising power". And on what term he should do it at the behest of the whole "demos". This State's ideology had assumed many bewildering guises. It was observed through many historical manifestations. It exist even under Communism's dictatorship, as the case of three (3) generations of North Korean's Kim's family dictatorship can be made "akin" to a pure form of "Faqash Ideology" in action. Whilst accepting that their version of this State's ideology is likely to be assuming a "guise" that makes a sense to the North Korean's themselves as they come under the cosh of that age-old ideology. It has always have many "cultural underpinnings" in which ever country that this ideology was tried on will readily recognized it. Which in turn gives vim and strength during its flowering period. And by that I mean just like Gen. Afweyne had songs, plays and cultural outputs made out specifically for him, and indeed the cultural landscape of the nation was required to "glorify" him and his "Faqash Ideology", so does Al-Assad has a similar things going on for him out there in Syria. And so does Kim's family out there in North Korea, who have a similar or a replica version of the same "cultural glorification" of his "Faqash Ideology", even if it comes through with the age-old Korean's cultural artifacts. But at the heart of it it's State Ideology that treats the common public-wheel as a property of the dictator and of his family alone. Not as the property of the people of that nation owning their nation. Not even a political party owning a nation (like the manner CCP of the PRC believe in when it comes to its responsibility to Chinese State). No, on contrary, this version of "pure form of patrimonial State ideology" actually hold that the State, the nation, the people, and everything else that is within it, belongs to the dictator and to his family. And to boot, that dictator, should have the "uncontested right" to perpetuate that "lucrative state of affairs" for his family into generations to come. Hence that was what was in stored as a "historical prospect" for the Somalis in Somalia under Gen. Afweyne. And it was indeed waiting for Somalia, if, for some flukely reason or other, he were to have been rather successful in subduing and crashing, completely, his political opponents throughout Somalia by sheer force alone. Like present-day Al-Assad family have done it to Syria, rather tragically. In one brief sentence, you can argue reasonably, that, "Faqash", as a "political ideology" means a State that is nothing but a "Patrimonial kleptocracy" centered on the conceit of a self-serving dictator and his family alone, with a "complete monopoly of violence" at his disposal as he sees fit. It was the case of Saddam's Iraq. It was the case of Qaddafi's Libya. It is still the case with Al-Assad's Syria. And finally, it was intended to be case with Gen. Afwyne's Somalia. Particularly if he were to have been rather victorious against his opponents. Which fortunately for Somalis, he didn't succeeded in establishing such a long-lasting and deleterious "ideologically-motivated" political State over the rest of the Somali peninsula.

    I think you are correct. All the billions poured into Somali government and there is little to show for it. There isn’t even a single boat (non amison) to patrol 2 miles outside Mogadishu coast.

    There is a reason you are known throughout the forum as a habitual liar. Literally every single post of yours is peppered with the most obvious lies, and whenever challenged you bring up your laughable "someone told me..." excuse, or you flee the discussion never to return. It is a shame someone at your age is feeling such ciil that you see no qualms about spreading misinformation so openly. Sanaag had only 3 districts, namely Ceerigaabo, Ceel Afweyn and Badhan. Unlike the BS you concocted above, I am happy to present official sources backing up my statements, even from your beloved kacaan: The official paper of the Somali Democratic Republic published the official list of all regions in the country and the all their respective districts in 1986. This was in preparation for the presidential elections announced: As everyone can see, there were only the three named districts in Sanaag at the end of 1986, and Las Qorey village actually came under Badhan district as highlighted. And before you try and claim the source is doctored, it is directly taken from the archives of the Roma Tre University of Italy. There you have it, another one of your lies easily exposed. Are you not tired of constantly being humiliated like this in your old age?

    Very weak logic. Puntland has a deal with Mogadishu, are they doing better than Somaliland? Sometimes I wonder, do Somalilanders with such weak disposition lack intellect, vision... or both? We in Somaliland have so much to work on, from corruptions to tribalism to management of resources... you name it. But a deal with Mogadishu will never be the answer. Have some self-respect, Somaliland is one of the five Somali regions, the first independent Somali state, you would not seek anything from Mogadishu more than you would Djibouti, Jigjiga or Garissa. You are on equal footing with the four other Somali regions, not a renegade part of one of them. For anyone delusional enough to imagine a deal with Mogadishu being the answer, I reiterate.. look at Puntland. You're almost as delusional looking towards Mogadishu for your solutions as Mogadishans are when they look towards AMISOM/UN/Ethiopia for their solutions.

    Out of the entire Somali nation Puntlanders are the last to talk about such things as "shameful legacy", for you are the offspring of Amina Boqor Cismaan and mudane Douglas Collin This is history we are talking about. It is all documented. The only 'rebel' group to surrender and beg for mercy were the pathetic SSDF. Thats why you dont see anyone bring up their contributions when discussing toppling of Afweyne, instead all discussions usually revolve around SNM/USC/SPM boys, you know, the ones who actually fought for their cause.

    This president of Somalia not only spoke fluently the language of the world, English, but also spoke with the tone of the modern world. He said" no one should be left alone in the age of interconnectivity and dependence", he spoke about sustainable development of reducing poverty in Somalia. Furthermore he outlined the security efforts of the Somali army and their African partners, and last but not the least , he touched the dispute with Kenya. While baby Uhuru still begging Farmaajo to bring the case from the court, Farmaajo insisted that only the IC would decide and Somalia would abide. Guys, sometimes, there is substance over style. I think we must applaud and thank the speech writer who really presented the Somali case to the world.

    Faroole is Somaliland's mole. Unlike other southern politicians, he is allowed to travel to Somaliland. With regards to Garowe being part of Somaliland and Somalia talks, it is a pipe-dream. There won't be any talks with Cheeseman, but the President after Cheeseman who will be from Mogadishu and Somaliland will make final decisions on these issues. Puntland won't be relevant, if they don't abide by the agreements, then we will make them abide by it.

    Great point Saalax. It has always been Awdal, Half of Sanaag and Sool were 100% pro Somalia. The formula changed further recently and Saalax's family became 20 to 30% pro-somalia. Pro-Somalia: 65% No opinion: 20% Hardcore secessionists: 15% (This group is usually from the clan that holds the presidency. The loyalty changes every election)

    I am not a fan of musicians and in fact don't listen to music anymore but this is an interesting case of bad PR. It is the most basic of rules in business that one should never alienate one's customers. A musician should sing for Xamar when in Xamar, for Galmudug when in Galmudug, for seccession when in Hargeisa, and for a warlord when in the warlord's house party. The musician's motto should be "loyal only to the dollar".

    His reading skills is even worse. He has the IQ of 13 yr old and reading skills of a 7 year old. Even if you were strugling with the language, yet a person with high IQ can formulate the quality of the message, the delivery of the speech and driving the intensity and interest with the body language.
