    Suldaanka, Yep, I agree with Ms. Ayan Canshur. It's full speed ahead when it comes to Somaliland's new diplomatic relationship with Taiwan. And that means, this new move will also "incentivize" others to jump-in into the Somaliland's diplomatic water. Given that it's rather warm water and decently free of any "social toxin" or of any "moral pollution" carried on by any of those "lesser breeds without the law" sort of clique they have teeming in down south to us in Somalia. And that is the fact pertaining to Somaliland, since she is a law-abiding State, where your corporate investment if you so choose to invest in her will be "protected by law" and by the "innate ethics" of the people there, given that we in Somaliland are not card-carrying collection of "looters incorporated" or that of "high-seas robbers", like they are in some part of the Somali peninsula. Moreover, there are no Jihadi misfits (with a martyrdom's obsession lodged in their addled-brain) running amok in our land, like they are in Somalia. And most decisively of all, we are not a wretched and miserable failed state that can't get its act together after trying repeatedly and failing repeatedly in almost 30 years, like they are, again, in Somalia. Consequently, the tragic and the cumulative end result of that long failed political reality is the fact of now "witnessing" in Somalia that the whole place has really been reduced to nothing but a "glorified UN-administering Trusteeship sort of satrapy fiefdom", masquerading itself, ever so absurdly, as a legitimate government of the Somali Republic. Hence, it was right for her to argued that, at the final analysis of the situation, Somalia is not in any meaningful position to stop Somaliland from having any kind of diplomatic relationship with anyone she so chooses to take up with such "friendship" based on her interest. And that in effect means, Somaliland, would earnestly look after her interest (diplomatic and economical) by searching a suitable international partners for that endeavor.

    Suldaanka, The US had seen enough about the reality of the Somali issue, and they come to the conclusion that both parties - Somalia and Somaliland - are far apart as possible. Hence, this is their way of first acknowledging the reality on the ground and how Somaliland is within its right to establish a diplomatic relationship with Taipei with the tacit approval from them. Secondly, it tells every country in the world that it's okay to establish a similar kind of diplomatic deal with Somaliland, and even if they proceed to recognize her, the US will not be put off by that act. or take an exception to it Third, it means now we are going to be driving 100 miles per hour in our diplomatic car in order to collect "friends and partners" across the world, so that they will be given us a "bilateral diplomatic relationship" (and even a bilateral legal recognition in which both parties extend to each other), as well as trying to win over their investment, particularly from those with deep pockets. Fourth, it also means, the US wouldn't be terribly so aversed to the idea of having the likes of Taiwan actually establishing a "naval presence" in Somaliland, like the manner PRC is in Djibouti, particularly, if Somaliland and Taiwan were to reach such Geostrategical and defense-related deal. All in all, we had stepped into the major league time of a "diplomatic breakthrough" sort of reality with this one. Hence, it's incumbent on us to go on to make a methodical and deeply sophisticated approach when it comes our dealing with the various countries around the world. Particularly, those who will now be happy to take our relationship to another level on the back of this US's diplomatic blessing.

    Well, it's a very interesting play. For we are now playing with an astute card. Hence, let's have more of those silly arguments from our "SOL's glorified janitor" (or was it the SOL's maid?), who really thought that this new "diplomatic relationship" between Somaliland and Taiwain was a "colossal blunder," according to that fleece-like brain of his.

    A Somaliland delegation led by foreign minister Mr. Faratoon, had proposed a union with Republic of China (Taiwan). For the Taiwanese , since they do not share a border with Somaliland , it was a welcome joke, but the minister insisted that sharing borders with another country is not a requirement for this union to happen. He suddenly put on the table a document signed by his president and told the audience to be serious and hear him out. The Taiwanese hosts were shocked how serious the minister was and decided to give him the floor. Minister Faratoon acknowledged the seriousness of the issue and said he have to stand up to deliver the sales pitch of the century. As he begun his sermon and the merits of this union, Dr. Edna who was sitting beside him sensed that Mr. Faratoon was some what hesitating in his delivery, and jumped to eloquently set the stage. As she sat down, another member of the delegation Ahmed Yasin, jumped to the fray and said, " as the speaker of Somaliland parliament" ( he is not the speaker but the deputy , but what do the Chinese juniors know) and said we got your General Assembly seat in silver plate. The delegation explained the steps to be taken to achieve a seat at the UN for the united countries of SomTaiwa. Here are the steps: Somaliland: First, Taiwan have to spend money for Somaliland recognition in Africa. Since everyone is saying Africans should be first decide if Somaliland is to be recognized, we will buy African votes within the African Union. THere are already enough candidates willing to recognize us if the price is right. South Sudan, Guinea, Gambia, Chad, Kenya are among those who could give as the first votes. Taiwan: How much money does it take to buy these votes? Somaliland: Few hundred million dollars.. Taiwan: that is a bargain. less than a billions for a UN seat, that would be the best deal ever. We are willing to spend 5% of our sovereign wealth which is billions to achieve a UN seat. Having said that how could that translate a victory for Tiawan? Somaliland: If you are willing to pay, we could get two dozen Africans, and then repeat the same plot in Latin America places like Guatemala, El Salvador, Peru and son. Within few years we could get 50 countries who would recognize Somaliland. Taiwan: of course., but you did not answer my question. How could that benefit us? Somaliland: WE will become one united country before we start the journey. When we get the recognition you will get too. A vote of recognition for Somaliland will be a UN seat for Tiawan. Taiwan: What should we call that country? Somaliland: didn't we said earlier? It will be called SomTaiwa. Taiwan: We like the idea but we want our name Taiwan to be before yours. Like TaiwaSom. It is only fair since we are bankrolling the whole campaign. Somaliland: give us a minute, we have to discuss about this new development of the name, because we assumed SomTaiwa was the name we agreed upon. Well, now the debate had started among the delegation. Minister Faratoon and another one from west Burco insisted that we are not willing to lose the Somali word in this name change. Dr. Edna and Ahmed Yasin who are close to Biixi disagreed. They said, " We do not mind losing this Somali thing, because some us had even had thought many years ago that instead of calling us the colonial name Somaliland , we should have called ourselves Maandeeq or even Shankaroonland. Saleebaan Gaal who did not say a word in all this debate , stood up and said, I can not allow Somaliland to be swallowed by these small eyed people, let us go home and debate this back home in Somaliland. Dr. Edna jumped and said, " how do you intend to debate this in a public forum? Saleebaan Gaal: we will tell the people the usual lie and explain that Taiwan is willing to make economic integration and future free trade with us. The delegation went back to the room and told the Taiwanese, " we will be back" and left. Folks, the debate continues.

    Even what you have suggested, as wild a move as they are, doesn't amount to much at all. Probably the publicity this whole thing has generated so far for Somaliland, if quantified in dollar terms, is more benefiticial than anything China can do to harm Somaliland. From the outset, I can say that China, the country, the system, the way they do business or even engage others, is not compatible with Somaliland's. They are pro-dictatorship, they do not encourage civil liberty, accountability, free press etc. The things that are dear to anyone who has a thinking mind and cherishes freedom. Whereas, Taiwan is the polar opposite to the China-Way. The Taiwan Model is about openness, liberty, freedom, democracy, free press etc. All the things I want Somaliland to be and learn. The intangible benefits of this relationship is enormous. Just consider, Taiwan sending its election observers to Somaliland. That is in itself a benefit that China cannot provide. More over, I think Israel comes to mind of a country that has successfully reserved the trend. If in the 1970s, 80s countries were all severing diplomatic ties with the Jewish state, today it is different. Many African countries are reestablishing links with Israel. Even some Arab countries are openly or covertly doing so. Hence, this new relationship between Somaliland and Taiwan is much more deeper than many have grasped. It is a win-win relationship. Taiwan is selling its model and Somaliland is the perfect place to help create a reality of that model. A strong selling point for Taiwan to other countries, of what they are missing out. Hopefully reversing the trend.

    Isn't it funny how even though they claim Somaliland is part of their country, they look to downplay any progress we make? If the locals in a tiny town in Awdal build a new school or a well, we are proud because that is our country. They can't hold their hatred for us long enough to convince anyone that they are driven by anything but entirely by xaasidnimo. If any part of Somalia had accomplished 1/1000th of what Somaliland has achieved, they would all be lining up to fellate that president like he was the second coming of their dear old Afweyne. I mean Farmaajo has basically repainted a wall and they proclaim him to be their saviour!!

    Taiwan trains counter-terrorism troops for Middle Eastern country Taiwan's 42-year-old MPSSC has already trained one group of recruits while another on hold due to pandemic, local media claims 3454 By Sophia Yang, Taiwan News, Staff Writer 2020/05/09 13:55 MPSSC in 2017. (Wikimedia Commons photo) TAIPEI (Taiwan News) — A high-ranking military official has claimed that a Middle Eastern country has inked a training agreement with Taiwan, according to a Liberty Times Net (LTN) exclusive story. Under the deal, Taiwan's Military Police Special Services Company (MPSSC), under the Military Police Command, is responsible for coaching the Middle Eastern country's counter-terrorism force. They will travel to Taiwan in groups for training that will enhance their knowledge, skill, and responsiveness in the war against terror. Similar to the United States Army Special Forces (Green Berets), the MPSSC was established in 1978 and has earned international acclaim for counter-terrorism operations and protecting high-ranking officials and ambassadors in Taiwan. It is also known for anti-hijacking and anti-sabotage operations. Taiwan is one of the few Asian countries capable of training special task forces and providing such services to other countries, according to LTN. It reported the first batch of trainees has concluded training and returned to home, while a second batch of recruits is on hold due to the COVID-19 pandemic. https://www.taiwannews.com.tw/en/news/3930970?fbclid=IwAR0emABRyt6O1Tu0X9gkWMx7vMox2MgKtLVwCAOv3zIB_heUQwd_e2IfBps Rumours has it that it's Somaliland.

    At least those countries are not known to have "self-looters" as citizens, like the manner some poor fellow who is here seems to have with his fellow citizens in his own country call Somalia. Given that his fellow citizens in Somalia, in turn, are known to rob blind their own freaking houses along with their neighbor's houses and anything that is in them, as well as their towns and cities. Furthermore, places like Taiwan, when all said and done, is in fact leaps and lengths above the likes of Somalia. Whereby Somalia will not be in a position to contest that glaring reality even in a 200 years time to come. Particularly, since, Somalia wouldn't be in a position, in economical terms, to polish the shoes of the likes of Taiwan, even by that time. So, there you are, my friend. Hence, is there any other trite or facile comment from you, my friend, just so that you can show the rest of us the level of "contemptible absurdity" in you are dwelling on it in here?

    Suldaanka, He will be remembered as second coming of late Dr Fagadhe of Sool (AUN), who was also a tireless foreign Minister of Somaliland from mid to late 1990s. And the beauty of his diplomatic approaches is this sort of "quite diplomacy", with no frills been observed, or for that matter without indulging any kind of a "megaphone pronouncement" on his part. And this way, we, of course, will line up other nations and various states for our cause.

    Yaxaas, Have noticed the "deafening silence" from those who are from Somalia, who in turn would be "rending their garments" in anger and in anguish, were to be the case that a mere "flying bird" may have gotten hurt in Somaliland? And now, all of a sudden, not one of their teeming numbers who are here with us, is to be seen venturing forth any comment in regards to press freedom and how it's faring (or failing) under Mr. Cheeseman's political regime from Villa Somalia. Hence, all one can say is that even a "sniffling and contemptible hypocrisy" doesn't come close in defining these "characters" and their conduct, or for that matter their hide-bound absurdity. But, having said all of that, still, I would say that it's good to know the "color" of their argument, and how much "credible weight" one should be attaching to it.

    The Fuundi of Federalism 1, 2, 3, 3,4, 3 song, our very own Brian Mcknight Somaliland The Kuwaiti government pledged in 2011 to donate $10 million to renovate and modernise Hargeisa Egal International Airport and Berbera Airport. Puntland me too 07/10/2013 A Grant Agreement was signed today in Kuwait between the Federal Republic of Somalia and the Kuwait Fund for Arab Economic Development, whereby the Fund extend a Grant of US Dollars ten million US Dollars (US$ 10,000,000), of which US$ six million will be allocated to finance the Garowe Airport Project in the Puntland State of Somalia. Somaliland In May 2016 the Government of Somaliland signed a 30-year agreement with DP World to develop and manage Berbera Port at a cost of $442 million. Puntland me too Apr 2017 P&O Ports has won a 30-year concession for the management and development of a multi-purpose port project at Bosasso in the Puntland State of Somalia. The approximate investment for the modern multi-purpose facility will be USD $336-million.

These ports in Somalia show how much business is directed at the capitals port compared to regional ports. Resources flowing from the periphery (regions) to the core (capital) enriching the latter at the expense of the former as happened in 70s, 80s and at work again.

    Unlike the lying scheming inferiority-ridden dhbayaco, we do not photoshop stats. Port activity information is publicly viewable on Vesseltracker.com, you can view it yourself. I know it is probably shocking for to see that even Kismayo with all that is going around it is has more activity than your Bosaso: That my friend what underachievement looks like So now that you can no longer use the photoshop excuse, how else are you going to explain away the pathetic activity level at your main port? I asked you what you have to show for the last 30 years, and you listed not a single meaningful project in your shithole of yogaland, you basically admitted you have nothing to show for the last 30 years. Even your federalism sandbox is turning into a horrible nightmare where your loomaooyaan are getting slapped and abused by the Banadir boys. You have no cards to play, no voice with which to object, nothing to react with except for communal calaacal, and to to beg using the constitution as a prop.. now that is langaabnimo.

    We are not talking about what you dhbayaco console each other with in your local mafrish, we are only interested in facts. Here are a few: Somaliland and Somalia sat on the big table as equals. Fact. Obese Deni brayed like a donkey from Garowe, no one cared. Fact. There is a reason why you are unable to answer the very simple question of what do you have to show for the last 30 years? Your territory is the only territory that escaped the destruction of the civil war, and yet if Ayeeyo Aamina Boqor was to be resurrected today, the place would not look all too different from where she remembers her escapades to have taken place all those years ago Here is one more fact for you: Right now, as you read these words, there is exactly one vessel docking at your Bosaso port, and zero vessels are expected. Meanwhile Berbera and Mogadishu.. well, lets just say the situation there is markedly different There is a reason why you are not interested in discussing what you've done over the last 30 years, dont let me catch you repeating that phrase again Beyond your lack of meaningful achievements over a period of 3 decades, you've been relegated to the status of loomaooyaan today begging the Banadir boys for mercy, they say history doesnt repeat itself but it often rhymes. Nightly cries of "tolaay yaa constitution ah" emanating from Garowe can be heard throughout the lands.

    You are not pursuing independence, but saying we have nothing to show for the last 30 years is, objectively, inaccurate. And the fact that it is stated by a dhbyaco of all people turns what would've otherwise been an innocent inaccurate statement to the joke of the century On every aspect of life we are objectively doing better today than we did 5 years ago, let alone 30 years. I have given examples of what I have to show for the last 30 years, I have plenty more to list. You would struggle hard to tell us what you as a dhbayaco have to show for the last 30 years, and unlike SL, you have not suffered the destruction of your major cities or +1M landmines planted in your territory to overcome. And you still have nothing. Worse still, your little safety-cocoon of federalism is turning into the stuff of nightmares where your obese leader barks from the rooftops to sit on the big table when Somaliland and Somalia are sitting as equals in Djibouti and he is ignored, or when the Banadir boys decide to flex on you and you literally have no recourse but to calaacal about the constitution like a loomaooyaan.

Well, things will kick off soon when this Covid virus is behind us. And a major investment is going to be heading to Sanaag region by a major UK construction company who will be building the port so that Maydh port can be a "conduit" for the "extractive industry" of Sanaag region that will be got going soon there with the investment from our "new friend" from Far East Asia. Things are looking good for Somaliland and in Sanaag in particular.
