  1. What impressed me is how the opposition that overthrew him is guarding the palace. In Africa, looting would have decimated even the roof.
  2. Ukraine President Viktor Yanukovych fled from Kiev on Saturday as the protest movement against his government continued to gain ground. The crowds of ordinary Ukrainians getting their first glimpse of the luxurious estate wandered the grounds taking photos. An elderly pensioner shouted, “What a thief!” as he took in the marble statuary. There was no looting, no one was allowed to enter the houses or outbuildings, and opposition protesters who had manned the barricades in Independence Square, the epicenter of the anti-government demonstrations, warned visitors to keep off the grass. Here's what protesters are seeing on the grounds: AP Photo/Efrem Lukatsky People walk on the grounds of Ukrainian President Yanukovych's countryside-residence in Mezhyhirya, Kiev region, Ukraine, Saturday, Feb, 22, 2014.

  3. But it has internet filters.
  4. Somalia beats few countries on percentage of people using the Internet Somalia-------1.25% Congo---------1.2% Burundi-------1.11% Ethiopia------1.1% Myanmar-------0.98% Timor-Leste---0.9%
  5. The general forum is first place I check when I log in. I love this forum. The webmasters should keep it clean and professional. The new design is long shot better than before but takes time to get used to. I just discovered how to use private messages.
  6. Give Nigerian a fish and he will eat for a day. Teach a Nigerian how to phish and he will steal your identity.
  7. <cite> @Mooge said:</cite> manahel, I have never seen you on somalionline before. are you new? :D Is that your new kick at shukaansi?
  8. She has a pretty figure, mashalah. I don't, however, think she delivered a coherent speech. She is all over the place.
  9. Death is a natural process that should not be feared. The initial sadness slowly turns into fond memories, therefore it is important to not act on emotions and destroy memories in a rush.
  10. Macruuf, on the surface, Somali system of governance exhibits severe lack of coherence. I agree with you the two are the same ministries.

  12. Only a stone could endure what the people of Mogadishu went through in the last 20 years. They are still full of life and joy. The deserve much more credit than others give.
  13. This constant violence is destroying whatever little confidence many of us had about returning and rebuilding the country. The government must stop the violence and pacify the city. It has enough army and AU support. What is wrong in Mogadishu lately?
  14. Dr. Osman, what other countries have consulates in Puntland?
  15. <cite> @Tallaabo said:</cite> You and the other Southern Somalis may find it difficult to understand our obsession with justice, but in Somaliland we have a culture of attaching great value to human life. Is that the only reason why this is done?
  16. I can't believe this woman is 58 years old.
  17. Warlord Indhocade is a symbol of tyranny and lawlessness. The closer he is to the current government, the worse this government gets. Why is he cabaadin? He destroyed many houses over the years.
  18. Puntland ministers should visit Mogadishu and the relationship must be improved. Peace Action, what needs to be answered is why a minister left Garowe without letting his own staff know where he was going? What was the purpose of the trip? What did he accomplish by going to another city. These are accountability questions. There is a cost associated with these travels and the state and people of Puntland are footing the bill.
  19. A peaceful transfer of power based on one vote is rare in the world let alone Africa. Somali elections are full of fraud and ballot stuffing. Good for him.
