    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.

    ^^** 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.

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.

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.

    ^^^^ Good news, indeed. And for the sake of "clarity", let me say, that, in Somaliland, our "political motto" is this: When it comes to establishing our legal jurisdiction over the whole of our land we shall proceed on the basis of a "forward movement" of the sort that is: "inch-by-inch, yard-by-yard, hamlet-by-hamlet, village-by-village, district-by-district, town-by-town, city-by-city, region-by-region" in winning over our land. And on that basis we shall be incorporating all of the territories that ought to be under Somaliland's Republic legal boundary. Moreover, the time it will take for us to get there is not that really important, even if it's "one-generation-long time-scale". But the essence of "winning-over-the-land" and that of "winning-over-the-people" are really, fundamentally, the "final yardstick" in which we shall measure ourselves on it. And in here is the essence or the reason as to why the "folks of Koonfuuria" will never understand us. Given that they actually never believe in any sort of a "larger principle" of any kind other than "corrupt money"and that of "political power". For them it's well-nigh impossible to actually "accept" that there may be, or could be, some sort of a Somali folks (just like them), who, however, actually believe something larger than themselves. And do happen to be believe in particularly a "political principle". And for good measure doing it so in believing it close to thirty (30) years in the running as their "northern's star" that will guide them and guide their ship of "political destiny" along the way. It's this sheer "bewilderment" in which they have when it comes for them to try to "understand" us, which is really the reason as to why we were always "destined" to have a "dialogue of the deaf" with one another. Now coming back to this issue, one can say, that, this city of Buuhoodle is essentially, at least politically speaking, a city that exist in the manner or in the form in which that city of Stalingrad used to exist during the world War two (WWII). And that was when it was a city in which its German's military Garrison were effectively surrounded by Russians army. And the only way in which one can go to Stalingrad from Berlin and back again, was by air-transport. Similarly, the city of Buuhoodle, is essentially surrounded by Somaliland on one side. And Ethiopia by other side. And therefore the only way in or out of it, is actually by air-transport or by coming through at the Ethiopia's border with Somaliland. Hence, it will fall into our "political column" without one bullet being fired in anger. In particularly so long as we keep squeezing it one ratcheted up of a notch at the time. Which is the reason why we are seeing now this political change over. And in a few months time, this city of Buuhoodle, will be just another town of Somaliland, as much as Xudun, Taleex, Las-Anod, are essentially part and parcel of Somaliland.

    No, really. For it's just empty and "futile miserable photo-opportunity" at the best of it. And it's essentially what the folks of the "Igu-sawir-crew" in Villa Somalia have perfected in here. This means that their country may be falling apart, politically, given that the their regional pseudo-states effectively have "nullified" any "legal connection" they may have had with the center and with their federal government. But in so far as the "political hustlers" in Villa Somalia are concern all that matters to them are these two "totemic things". And they are, namely, firstly "money" (lots of it) particularly if it's crookedly obtained so that they can do their corruption both domestically and internationally in' the sense of trying to "bribe" some of the foreign diplomats that are "seconded" into Somalia. And the other thing, at least politically speaking, that is also a "life-saver" for them is that of a "Photo-opportunity propaganda" (i.e., "Igu-Sawir"). And this latest cheap stunt seems to be what this presumed meeting will be all about, indeed.

Somaliland aduunku waa ogyahay, adna waa ka dheregsantay in Somalia waxba isugu jirin. Hadii Dastuur Federal ah samaystaan iyo hadii jarka iska xooraan, ayaga ayay u taal. Mogadishu cashar ku filan waa la siiyay. Laakin hadii wali hunguri kaga jiro Berbera, ardulaahi waasacan.

    I think this is a day to remember those of you old enough to remember how we fought against all odds. Against the military junta of the late general afweyne. When our bravest generals and colonels did what most thought is impossible to fight a regime. Which gets 100 million dollars in military aid from the Pentagon Ronald reagon at that time. But we said we don't care if you are funded by gorbajov or Stalin or Ronald reagon. Afweyne will not rule our land. To all the fallen soldiers ilaahay ha idin naxariisto. For the next generation ogow Somaliland xoriyadeedu la iskamakeen siin cudud iyo dagaal iyo rasaas bay ku timi. Calanka maanta lahadhsanayo. Jamacadaha maanta laga qalinjabinayo. Ganacsiga sida xawliga usocda. Dharka quruxda badan eh la xidhanyahay. Daaraha dadku dhisteen wa mahad ilaahay.

    Suldaanka, I think, Dr Sacad A.Shire, is very polite diplomat, although I would have liked him to take this journalist to the cleaners with a more forceful language, since he seems to be bit misinformed about things in regards to Somaliland. However be that as it may, I still think Dr Shire got his point across. And remember his main point was that it's a delusional talk to say that Mr Cheeseman of Villa Somalia should be visiting Hargeisa, whilst on the other hand, he is still hallucinating enough to believe that Hargeisa (or Somaliland in general) is place he actually governs it from his bunker in Villa Somalia. Hence, why we think it's tendentiously silly to talk about Mr Cheeseman coming to Hargeisa carrying some wretched "blue flag" in which we gave up its ghost of it almost thirty (30) years ago. This is all a game to them. For they actually are never serious about anything. Given that they know perfectly well what we think of their silly games. And the reason they are in this shit-hole of a political place is that they never actually gets serious about the affairs of their nation, about its future destiny, about its old and much-contested history. About anything of deeper substance, really. Everything is about money with them. Its about an endless political game. And it's about getting a good press or getting a good photos for themselves at that passing day. For example, this whole issue of Mr Cheeseman visiting Hargeisa was essentially created as a way of given him a good press, as if he is some kind of a "peace-maker". Correspondingly, it was also created to make Somaliland look bad in the eyes of the international media, given that we, of course, will laugh off such a "silly political stunt" in which we were bound to do it, since it's a fiction he is selling in here not substance of anything. And before you know it, even places like Hiiraan online is running with that story of Mr Cheeseman wanting to visit Hargeisa (in its English section) whereby the international press will pick it up eventually. And for a few days the idea of Mr Cheeseman, the Somali "peace-maker" for his country will be the racket they will be pushing it, and milking it for all it's worth, even if there is no substance behind such outrageous claim. These folks are turning up to be a pass masters of how to create a "fictitious political propaganda" from thin-air, instead of concentrating the substance sort of the sense of any subject under the sun. And they will use anything, everything, just to get a good press here, a good pictures there, or a good social media output on the internet in over-all. Even if they have nothing to show for it, in a real substance sort of sense, for their kind of politics at the end of the day.

    Spot on, yaa Suldaanka, the US will cancel his passport if he were to turn up in New-York carrying his diplomatic Somali passport. And once the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), in which US's immigration services is part of it, actually find out that this man, who is a US-Passport-holder, is also a president of Somalia, with a diplomatic passport to boot, then they will say he no longer needs his US's passport. Moreover, even Mr Trump, can't ask them to reconsider it, since the US's immigration authorities are deeply strict with the criteria they put forward in-terms who can carry US's passport. Welcome to Somalia of 21st century in which its leaders consider their foreign-issued-passports to be the thing that is more important to them than the idea of actually cancelling their foreign-issued-passports, renouncing their loyalty to foreign countries and then settling inside their own country, as leaders throughout the world actually do it in so far as their respective countries are concern. Now what was it the "intellectual midgets" and the "political non-entities" of the "Koonfurian's contingent" we have in here of SOL, were saying about Somalia? Aha, yeah, I remember it now. For it was about the talk of saying that Somalia has a legitimate government with a seat at the UN and a national flag. Apparently, that is the only thing that matters to them. Not even seeing their leaders who are more loyal to foreign countries than to their own country. The "contempt" in which one has for these shameless people and their politics doesn't get to diminish (or even reach any lesser level of potency) in each passing months or in each passing year.

    Miskin why would muse want to go to Ethiopia muse already visited Dubai and Djibouti and the vp just recently came back from Saudi Arabia. But I am sure your leaders from bay and bakool dont have to go to Ethiopia their land is physically poltically part of Ethiopia. The koonfurians have a weird understanding of governance travel around the globe beg for aid while your own land is on fire.

    Maakhiri iyo Holac, don't believe and fall what the disgruntled Tigrey is spouting on here. He is miserable these days, for he cannot believe his Tigrey people becoming irrelevant and whatnot in Geeska Afrika so quickly. He was and is still defending Cabdi Ileey, his militia and his TV station since he was their biggest stooge. This is nothing to do with Imaaraadka. It is an effort by dowladda Soomaaliya. Imaaraadka has zero interest to see wada shaqeyn ka dhaxeysa dowladaha Geeska Afrika, gaar ahaan Jabuuti iyo Eritareeya. Yesterday, our Tigrey guest was chastising madaxweynaha Soomaaliya for alienating Imaaraadka and today, unbelievably, he is trying to sell this BS of dowladda Soomaaliya being an Imaaraad puppet. Cajiib, iskamaba warqabo. Soon in the next few weeks, all the leaders of Jabuuti, Soomaaliya, Itoobiya and Eritareeya are going to meet in a summit. If Eritareeya's sanction is lifted, it also helps the sanctions on Soomaaliya importing heavy weapons. It will be too lifted since it is tied with Eritareeya as well. Weapons import sanctions being lifted with Eritareeya not supporting Barbaarta, it is game over for Barbaarta Soomaaliya argagax kala daalay. Madaxweynaha Soomaaliya meel fog ayuu wax ka arkaayaa, not shortsighted lagu yaqaabo maryooleey.

    This man is a Hero, and its this kind of heroism that we know of the beesha Og, from the dawn Sayid Mohammed Abdullahi was born up to the present day Freedom Fighters of ONLF, this beesha Og have really made the Somali people proud and what the traitor Abdi Ina Iley has committed should not be a stain used against them. Kudos to Mustafa Omer, i hope that the colonialist Ethiopia doesn't change him into another stooge (like Abdi Ina Iley) to oppress his freedom fighting Somali people.
