    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. Sababta oo ah waa niman geesiyiin ah oo "Xoog" iyo muruq laba-quwadle ah ku kalabaxa. Mana jecla in aad "Xisaab" aad ula timaado.

Maadaama Kuwait aheyd dal qanni ah oo si dhakhso ah oo fudud Saddam Xuseen ku qabsadey oo uu dhacay sanadkii 1990 bishiisii August.

    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.

    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. Mid soke iyo mid shishe oo Ingiriis ka tageyba. Sababta oo ah "nin googorad xidhan" oo afka ka nool, sida adiga iyo tolkaa lagalama sheegeysto ficil rageed ama wixii ku banaan ragaas.

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.

    That requires balls to do such thing in any inch of Somaliland's territories. And such balls is what your teeming Ilma-Gumeed lack in a distinct manner. After all creating things of the sort you mentioned required an act on the ground. Not so much of hot air stupidity about SSC fiefdom, or about some alleged Maakhir State encompassing all of Sanaag region, or about Khaatumo's State wet-dream, which is what some of you were known to be having on daily basis. None of that stuff cut it back home, mate. However, back home things of this sort in which you are blathering on with it in here requires balls and balls alone, I am afraid. And you lot are only good enough (and the likes of our Galbeedi comes to mind as well) to waffle on in the four-square confines of this joint call SOL and in the free air of the internet with a bile of odious trite stuff. But back home you are no where to be seen, really. And finally, the only place we are "binding" our time on it is that town of Buuhoodle, in which we will take it in a heartbeat by force, indeed, if this sort of nonsense of yours is what is being contemplated for it at all. Got it yea Ina-Gumeed?

    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.

    Amigos, Salaan sare iga gudoon, saaxiib. Runtii saaxiibkey Galbeedi si dhab ah ayuu iskugu dhex-yaacay. Gaar ahaan intii uu "calanka guulwadenta", "iidhehda iyo xayeysiinta siyaasadeed" uu u qaadey tuugadda is urursatey ee N&N layidhaahdo ee Villa Somalia fadhida. In other words, he gets more desperate in each passing day since he can see that his whole scam of thinking that this clique in Villa Somalia will undermine Somaliland internally is coming unstuck right before his own eyes. And he was hoping that such thing can be engineered by way of playing inter-rivalry within "Duriyadda". But now he can see his whole political scam is coming up with nothing. And the more he seems to realize that he is looking at the business end of the barrel of the gun of a comprehensive "political defeat", the more he acts wildly, outrageously, and altogether rather unhinged fashion. And he acts that way since he can easily see that his yearning hope of realizing the fundamental undermining of Somaliland by Villa Somalia's current gang is going up in smoke without such scam being fulfilled in any way. Consequently, the result is not a pretty sight, mind you. Which is why we have these endless long essays from him blaming all and sundry of why Somalia's leadership failed to do what they promised to do about their security. Instead of blaming the culprit of this fiasco of Mogadishu's security problems, which is the same folks who sits in Villa Somalia. And who also to boot are the same folks he is being acting on their behalf in the last two (2) years or so around here of SOL as their "stooge-guy-to-go-to", particularly when it comes the need of "publicizing" their "bogus rendition of political achievement" for Somalia. Which he used to do it in here in an unfailing manner throughout the last two (2) years or so. Incidentally, it's also why he is now back into his "old habit" of trying to play his wretched game of thinking that "Inter-Duriyadda political competition" may help his cause of achieving the internal disintegration of Somaliland. Or at any rate he is back in hoping that what the "N&N crew" in Villa Somalia failed to achieved for him (namely the disintegration of Somaliland) perhaps this time around a renew emphasis on his part particularly of the sort of "highlighting" the "age-old internal schism" within "Duriyadda" will do for him in the attainment of his end political goal. Which is the final disunity of Somaliland. This is why he keeps on mentioning and droning on endlessly about "East Burco vs. West Burco". As well as some such forlorn hope on his part about how the political competition between "Kulmiye vs Wadani" can pick up in earnest where Villa Somalia's attempt to engineer a "disunity" within Somaliland failed to saw a discord within the ranks of Somaliland. This was his "sordid game" all along. For he actually saw (or perhaps "spied" is the appropriate word in here) from Villa Somalia a "political opportunity" to "implement" his hope of tearing Somaliland apart, internally. But that scam has spectacularly and unfortunately failed to materialize for him. And it goes without saying that it was rather fortunately for us in Somaliland that such turn of events did occur for him, of course. And now he is talking about Mr Cawil Ducale (a man who is very dear to my own heart in more ways than one). as well as Mr Waran-Cade, who both are men of West Burco's clan. As well as talking about what "political scheme" they are having in mind (or are cooking up) on behalf of Kulmiye's party in-order to "check-mate", politically, Mr A. Cirro and Mr Xirsi Gaab of Wadani party, come the next presidential election in Somaliland in 2022. Of course, none of that "wild political speculations" he seems to have penned in here can scarcely and barely disguised his "reddening blushes" in which he has gotten out of the political embarrassment of knowing in his bones that his anti-Somaliland's scam or his "ideological crusade" of that sort has failed and failed in so spectacular of a manner, indeed. But still all the same, we shall see to it not hold that against him, I would say it. Since that sort of politically barely credible and the endlessly wild speculation on his part is all he has left with it now that he is - figuratively speaking - "politically naked" before the harsh element (as it were).

    Dhagax-Tuur, you are focusing on the wrong stuff. The country should not be plunged into chaos because only Farmaajo wants to be called president. That is a meaningless purpose to serve the country. Farmaajo made absolutely no improvments on security. Farmaajo took over a thriving Mogadishu with business coming back. Today the country is in chaos. Love them or hate them, Shariif, Abdulahi Yusuf and Culusow all did their part. We are still waiting for Farmaajo's improvements.

    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".

    Guys, Cabdi Good nin Sakhraasan ma ahan. Waa nin reer Burco ah hadalkana sarifa. If you look some of his videos that is exactly how he talks. Let me try to explain some of his reasons. The Djibouti issue was the most paramount issue in the Somali folklore, literature and poems. For most of you , history probably has started in 1991, and even for some it i started during Amisom and Mogadishu era. After the Arusha agreement in late sixties which has transferred NFD to Kenya , the Somali people and government had started a campaign to liberate Djibouti and join the union. I was a child , but when Djibouti was liberated we all thought that they would be joining the union. In nineteen sixties, Abdirasaq Haji Huseen had started a secret contact with Cali Caarif Burhan, the premier of the French controlled Djibouti. He promised him that if he joins the union, he will personally transfer the premiership of Somalia and the new union. A Yemani/Somali Businessman became the liaison contact with the two governments. In 1966, the Yemani Businessman was murdered in Djibouti while walking " Dalagdalgta plaza Rambo" . The only people who new these issue were , Calicaarif, A/risaaq , the businessman and Ahmed Yusuf Ducaale ( The brother of Boobe Yusuf ducaale) the foreign minister of Somalia. There were reports about espionage and leaks given to the French and the Ethiopians by the foreign minister of Somalia. The issue was investigated and Mr. Ducaale was found guilty of espionage. A man who is in his seventies , who was clerk of the court at the time told me that the file was full of nothing but pictures of contacts between the minister and others. When the case was in the courts, C/risaaq was even told to delay the case and wait until the election for fear of losing the " Reer Woqoyi" votes. After the election of 1967, Ibrahim Egal became premier and kept the position of foreign minister to himself. To make the story short Somalis of every walk of life fought , sang and hoped for their liberation of Djibouti for the sake of future Somali territory. No one ever said Djibouti will be it's own country except Ethiopia and the French. Even Siyaad Bare himself took part of separation of Djibouti from Somalia after he made a secret deal with the French. Just before the independence the leading men of the " Jabhada Xoreynta Djibiuti were arrested in MOgadishu and were later released six months after independence including DR. Omar Osman Raabe. The rest of the Leadership of the "Jabhada including it's leader Mohamed Janaale and Aden Rooble Cawaale were shot in Lawyacado before crossing to Djibouti days before independence. Janaale the leader died in Lowyacade, but Aden Rooble survived and later was sidelined and even arrested by the Ghelle family. Some of us had close family members who did sacrifice for the cause. Unlike Africa were most of the independent movement took over the power after the departure of the colonials , in Djibouti, those serving the colonial powers like the Ghelle family became the leaders. Hasan Guuleed , who was the most pro French members of France deputies was designed to lead. Ten years before the independence the name French Somaliland was changed, the pro independence Somalis deported, the border in Lawyacao electrified and became the " Territory of Affar and Ciise" The man running Djibouti today was a constable of the vice police to manage the meetings and health of the women selling their body to soldiers. You might not believe but there was even an office to check and monitor the health of those women and give them clean bill of health before the join the colonial soldiers. I don't have time to narrate the whole story but the usual "Somali Gaas Dhagoole" knows only what is happening among his tribe today. So, before you call this man names, at least consider and look back the history. Djibouti was the main parcel of the " Shanta Soomaaliyeed" and some of us did not forget that. He is wrong on advocating dismember, yet certainly he got a point about " Xeebta Djibouti ee Soomali laga Xaday". He is from Burco and Reer Burco , unlike those from Galbeed and Hargeisa., are not hypocrites. They tell like it is--alawys. Cabdi Good warkiisa ha la Dhuuxo.

    @galbeedi ignore this ignorant gooni, he just like his clans-men that were raised on the xaraam booli qaran/Nepotism see farmaajo as their messiah afweyne 2.0 that will bring back their booli qaran status, which is why they are so eager in defending him from all critics, and by the way their Booli Qaran status will never return again. As for farmaajo failing politically its all because of his arrogance in assuming that he a non native Mogadishu that hails from the poorest starved region GEDO in Somalia and his PM Kheyre a langaab from a tiny district Dayniile in outskirt of Mogadishu (and btw Kheyre's clan are so tiny that from all of Somalia they only have Dayniile and nothing else) can rule Mogadishu from those that have actual influence like Reer Galmudug who rule whole of Galmudug/S-Hoose and Half of Banaadir. Somalia is still very much tribal, and there will be cold in hell before someone from langaab people that hail from one of the poorest region Gedo in Somalia will rule the Rich Native Mogadishu, so long Reer Galmudug are breathing they will forever make sure Afweynes orphans will never rule or struggle ruling Somalia inshallahi.

    We all remember Garowe's infamous 3 Stooges who used to come on TV like it was a daily fix of ''Soap Opera' drama. But Somaliland's National Army comes on TV once and sends a strong unequivocal warning to Garowe to 'cease and desist' and not only do Garowe tow the line but also @Saalax favourite topic of 'Col. Caare' goes into mute. That is the 'Shock and Awe' we are talking about.

    Suldaanka, Although I see what you are getting at in here, and I kind of agree with you there, but when he was even in Ceel-Afweyn's military base-area, and he did "mutinied", then that to me was an act of opening of a "Pandora box". And it was to me a "no-go-area" at all. Because it could just happen that tomorrow some another Colonel in our military (say for example a Colonel in one of our army's bases in Awdal region) may say that he doesn't agree with many things in which the elected government of the day is doing it in Hargeisa. And therefore he is going to "mutiny" from the army with a contingents of soldiers from the army's barrack in which he just happens to be the commander of it. Which was what this Col. Caare actually did. And as you can see that will destroy any army worth of the name, as well as end any notion of army discipline. And of course, it also end any legitimate "democratic notion" of having a civilian's elected government running the country whilst on the other hand the military will be guarding the nation and leaving politics well alone to the civilian's politicians. It may be a wholly naive view of the world, particularly of African's world of politics, but that is only road open to our army if we want to avoid the army being the "back-seat" driver to the politics of the nation, going forward. However, be that as it is, it seems that he made it easier for Somaliland when he crossed the "Rubicon" (as it were), which was when he actually have decided to take the "cheap shillings" of certain Mr Cheeseman of Villa Somalia and therefore come openly under the flag of Somalia. Hence, once he did that, then even his immediate sub-clan (i.e., Sacad-Yonis of Ceel-Afweyn) start disowning him. Let alone the larger HY as well as the extended family of the "duriyadda" as well as Somaliland as whole, who collectively decided to drop him like so much of a "hot-potato". Given from that point onward he became the "real enemy" of Somaliland in one identifiable piece, even if he is supported and helped by our enemies in places like Garowe and in Mogadishu.

Kuwa caruurta ah ee taariikhda waxba kala socon, ayaa lagu jahawareeriya xuska 1991kii. If we open the books, no one is a saint. Mida kale, Magaalooyinka beesha SNM dadkii loot gareeyay waa la ogyahay. Reer Borama did most of the looting, second were the O-clan and then the rest of Somalis. Hargeisa dhagaxa kali ah ayaa lagaga tegay. For example, we left our home fully intact one morning, thinking we will come back in a week's time but never did. And the same one true for almost 90% of hargeisa's residents. All that were looted.
