    M0ooryan are those who left Baidoa to squat outside Mogadisho and who are cheap maids for hire whether by Farmajo or Alshabab to harm reer Mogadishu and their interests. I call on the above chief squatter to focus on his home and stop eyeing Xamar. Xamar belongs to reer xamar and not reer aflqaldan.

    "It seems that most Tigrayan observers and analysts predict in best case a much weakened federal authority and a transition to a confederal type of arrangement, possibly with ‘split sovereignty’ between the center and regional states; or in the worst case an implosion of power and the disintegration of Ethiopia. These two scenarios, and everything in-between, are possibly all too pessimistic; but as stated optimists are hard to find in Ethiopia these days, let alone in Tigray. The most recent development is pushing towards a political confrontation between TPLF and PP; between the regional state government and the federal authority, as stated in TPLF’s Executive Committee statement from May 4, 2020:" In-depth Analysis: Towards Tigray Statehood? - Addis Standard ADDISSTANDARD.COM Addisstandard.com

    Suldaanka, Man, what historical day it was. I was there (right there in the crowd), I was attached to late Prof. Ibrahim Meygaag Samatar (AUN), as his note-taker in the meetings. There were endless political meetings of the SNM's high command (by Mr. Tuur, the Chairman, and the rest of the central committee). Particularly as to what to do in the light of what took place in the country and the total destruction that we had in our hand at the time. I was a graduate student in London (UCL), who as soon as I heard the country was liberated, I legged-off from London, took a flight to Djibouti, and I was in the ground in Hargeisa by mid-April. The country was like a horror-scene straight out from Hiroshima kind of destruction. But by the grace of God, it was in our SNM's hand and it was free, at last. What a historical day it was, indeed.

    Apophis, Aha, a typical carpet-baggers, is all that the lot of them are, is all I can say. In fact, if this is true (and it gets to be confirmed by other media's portals), then it shows how this is was a scam to them, a kind of a "get-rich-quick-scheme". And, of course, the first sign of trouble they are heading back to their "adopted western's countries", and are leaving the stricken masses of Somalia to their wretched fates. In other words, if you hire an NGO-minded Somali expatriate, and then the first sign of inconvenience reality in which he or she may run into it, they will be crying: "Oh, uncle Western's nation, please, Sir, take me out of this hell-hole" (or words to that effect).

    They came with a laptop and a brief case. Also most likely they are the ones that imported Coronavirus to the city. They are now fleeing back with bags full of cash - cash from the tax collected from the businesses and Mogadishu's residents. Of course, as usual, the residents will bear the brunt of disaster they left behind.

    That is the future I guess.Nomadic lifestyle is unsustainable. Specially when rains have become sporadic, droughts recurrent and also the political environments is becoming less conducive to easy movement of people and animals. At the same time, agri-tech is becoming cheaper and more available to the small scale farmers. These are technologies that were once in the domain of the big boys in town with deep pockets. The know-how and the knowledge about new ways and methods of farming are becoming accessible to a lot of people. So it is inevitable that settled farming will win the day. For instance, camel farming is becoming more and more popular thesedays. It is more profitable when they are in a farm where they feed and water are guaranteed. They will give you guaranteed milk output and one can plan their finances accordingly. A man who returned from the diaspora came up with an innovative new way of farming. He rents only she-camels that are milking from nomads. The nomads get a guaranteed monthly income from their she-camel without worrying about the feed, water or health of the animal. This guy now has more than 5,000 she-camels that he doesn't own but rents them all.

    Small notes for the nomads about the great wars and HoA. 1. All Somalis except Djibouti and today's Puntland were part of the Second World War. Those in Puntland and Djibouti had agreements with the big powers in their territories not to make them fight in other lands. 2. Salamanders were the highest level of self command of any people in Africa that were in either side. Example: in the Campaign to liberate what is now Eritrea, Somalilander commander had higher status on the campaign between Kassala Sudan and Asmara Eritrea. Even though the Sudanese were more in number than Somalilanders, but the Somalilanders are not colonial army. This mattered for the British. Somalianders were only lower than Australians and South Africans. 3. If it wasn't that Africans have no self respect, Eritreans if they remember the war should be thankful of Somalilanders. The Sudanese were blamed for the religious conflict that arose in Eritrea, never the Somalis. The Somalis are never blamed for any abuses (even the common ones in wars) while others are. 4. Those who were on Italian side were undisciplined, abusive in both Somalia and Ethiopia. 5. Somalis never joined the Foreign Legion from Djibouti like other Africans did, nor did they Join the Italians outside HoA, like Eritreans did in Libya and Somalia. Somalis can celebrate end of WWII even though most of the fighting by Somalis on any side was done as Europe was starting latest was early 1942.

    Suldaanka, There was never any doubt as to who runs - and I mean in the sense of running it on a day to day basis - the political home's regions of the "Gudhuu-Eeelaay" of Somalia, which is what these two regions of Bay and Bakool are. It was the case since 1997. And is still the case, as was proven openly by the fact that the likes of Mr. Lafta-Gareen was actually installed there, in Baydhabo, with the blood of his own kin and kith being shed copiously for him by these same occupying Ethiopians. Just so that he can be imposed there, like so much of a "cheap political puppet" that was sent there from Villa Somalia, which is what he is, at the end of the day. However, the "bigger picture" here is that Somalia which is claiming to be a "sovereign nation" has this glaring "ugly sight" to contend with, which is the notion of being "dictated" to by her neighbor. And, in fact, this particular neighbor, namely, Ethiopia, can tell her as to who would have any "access" to some regions of its own country, in which she, as a neighbor, maybe loitering in it, brazenly, as she is in these two concerned regions. It's almost like the sad picture of seeing a "retained woman" who keeps on putting on some bogus hot-airs about herself, in terms of how she is being "independent lady" and whatnot of her own right. But, at the end of the day her "patron" who keeps her keenly and treats her meanly, will always tell her as to who she can duly "invite" into her home or not. That is the precise and the real "sordid definition" of this political reality in which Somalia is experiencing it. Particularly when you stripped it down and you bring it down her "current political reality" from the level of "high politics" it can take to the low "analogous sense" it has at the pedestrian level sort of definition. And that, as you know, "speaks volumes" in more ways than one.

    President Lyndon H. Johnson captured the sentiment of how influential whites see poor whites: “If you can convince the lowest white man he’s better than the best-colored man, he won’t notice you’re picking his pocket. Hell, give him somebody to look down on, and he’ll empty his pockets for you.” Capitalist whites will hold only to power as long as they convince poor whites that they are better than America's minorities.

    It's more than possible and I've seen it done. But the problem is lack of adequate access to markets and the fact that most of the produce is harvested at the same time so wholesale prices plummet. And not to mention the sabotaging by the UN in the form of "food aid". All aid agencies should be banned during years of good rain. If that were to be done we would quickly see the country become self sufficient.

    [Non-AMISOM Ethiopian forces secure the parliament building of South West region] Sources: Ethiopian Forces in Somalia Shot Down Kenyan Plane Purposely placed anti-aircraft vehicle on the landing strip... then shot it down. According to the article, Both Cheeseman and the regional officials are soo scared that they can't publically talk about it. "His account was confirmed by a regional minister and an aviation official who both asked not to be identified for security reasons." The Ethiopian stooges and apologists are trying to spin this issue and blame it on an animal 'a poor Donkey'. "Ethiopia has nearly 4,000 soldiers serving as part of the AU mission, but non-AMISOM forces are larger. According to a reliable official, 75% of Ethiopian troops in Somalia are non-AMISOM soldiers. " That means, combined Ethiopians forces AMISOM + non-AMISOM is 20,000 soldiers. That is larger than the combined rest of AMISom troop contributing countries.

And now less than a year, it likely to be in the running in supplying the wider HoA's regional market, from Djibouti to Ethiopia, to Somalia, not say nothing about providing to Somaliland itself. Kudos, I say.

    Mr. Deni, for some reason is shaping out to be the worse leader (at least the law-and-order front) where Pirate-land is concern. And we in Somaliland have in stake in his meager ability to ensure he can at least maintain some sort of order in his fiefdom. Otherwise, the spillover will come to our side of the border. It seems he lacks funds to manage the basic salaries of his militias. But I think the big salient picture is that the southern's regions beyond Pirate-land are more and more re-orientating their economic activities towards Mogadishu. And that in effect means, Pirate-land is losing the economical life-blood she used to be to the central regions previously. And more the port of Berbera gets to be modernized and gets to be rebuilt to an international standard, in turn, will mean that most of the eastern regions of Somaliland will gradually get to wean-off from their old habit of using the port of the city of Bossaso. Hence, cumulatively, it means, that, year by year, the long term economic prospect of Pirate-land will get dimmer and dimmer in each passing year, particularly, so long as the factors effecting her, economically, are out of her hand (as they are already). And that, in turn, will mean she will be out of option when it comes to trying to do anything about it.

    Tallaabo, Saaxiib, you let yourself down some times, particularly when you go out of your way to educate a sniffling troll who is essentially a defeated lot ilk, like this waffler you have responded to, given that he can't do jack-all to Somaliland, but, actually he thinks, he can get something with trolling spleen against Somaliland. Hence, don't you know he knows the difference between the two historical episodes? Of course, he knows it. It just he has such a hatred for those who bested him, namely Somaliland, who even were literally "feeding" his ilk in Badhan the other day. So, he does what he does best, which is to come here in SOL so that he can relieve off himself the bitter spleen and the bile he is harboring against Somaliland.

Or have the meanest of intelligence to actually cotton-on to it, if one were to read it to him by verse and by line sort of explanation. So, consider that as another "crippling disability" in which he is being made low with it, on top of being the usual senseless troll in which we have around here of SOL.

    Suldaanka, That actually reminded me of a larger point I had forgotten about it. You see Mr. Cheeseman had actually signed (or rumored to have signed off) for Ethiopia to have or operate four (4) as of yet unspecified ports in southern Somalia. And so far no one has asked the likes of Mr. Cheeseman and Villa Somalia to level up with this pseudo-parliament they have currently. Not even one lowly Minister was called-in to explain this sort of under-hand understanding, or even to tell the names of these ports to these pseudo-parliamentarians, which allegedly, was given to Mr. Abiye Ahmed. However, as you know, the moment Berbera's port issue came about they were screaming to high heaven, as if they could do anything about it. And the taste of the pudding is that, whilst they have passed all sorts of alleged "legal resolutions" against Berberra's port and its development by the likes of DP World, the port itself is getting developed, and nicely coming along to a fine and dandy conclusion in terms of its modern standard re-construction of it. Thank you very much for the likes of the DP World, one has to say it. And finally, when they know all of that which took place in relation to Berbera's port and in terms of how Somaliland had made a laughing stock out of them with their toothless legal resolution, they have yet to ask of themselves the question that will say: if we can't even get a straight answer from Villa Somalia in terms of how many ports, and which ones, they have given to Ethiopia, then, what hope do we have to be taken seriously by the likes of Somaliland? Particularly, considering the fact, that, the moment we even possibly get to Berbera's city, as alleged Pseudo-Parliamentarians from Somalia, we will all of us - every one of us - get arrested on sight in Berbera's port, as an "illegal trespassers". It seems to me, that, these guys are as much into "Igu-Sawir-parliamentary-motions" as the guys in Villa Somalia are into "Igu-Sawir-World-Bank-donated-cash", which is what they have tried to do with that money from the World Bank in which they have tried to relabel it as "Baxnaano fund" that was allegedly coming from Villa Somalia.

Here in Canada they just caught a person who flew from Iran. Canada is well prepared.
