  1. https://www.cnn.com/2018/11/16/politics/cia-assessment-khashoggi-assassination-saudi-arabia/index.html (CNN)The CIA has concluded that Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman personally ordered the killing of journalist Jamal Khashoggi, despite the Saudi government's denials that the de facto ruler was involved, according to a senior US official. The senior US official told CNN on Friday the conclusion is based on a recording provided by the Turkish government and other evidence, including American intelligence. Investigators also believe an operation such as the one that ended in Khashoggi's death would not have happened without bin Salman's knowledge given his control of the government, the senior US official said.
  2. @OodweyneI have an open bet with you about Somaliland and its future. Previously I argued that the sacred union where Somaliland leads the rest is the only way out of this unproductive quagmire. You being the hardcore secessionist you profess to be, you disagreed with me, off course. Fast forward to today's events, it is an undeniable fact that Somaliland's back is against the wall as it slowly isolates itself and adjusts to new realities and new alliances. What is your philosophical take on this? I would love to hear Galbeedi's take on this as well.
  3. Swiss Parliament explained.
  4. Tallaabo, I couldn't agree with you more. We need to eliminate the infatuation with being President. Many of our problems originated from clannish ego and who rules whom. Having said that, before we accept such model, generations of Somalis must be given high level education. We have a high percentage of cawaans leading the Somalis.
  5. maakhiri, I was referring to the CIA openly admitting that MBS is the culprit. What does that mean for the young Prince?
  6. I don't know why the Federal government is chasing Xaaf. He is actually one of the most level-headed leaders of Dowlad Goboleeds. Who are the protagonists in this drama for control in Galmudug? Caabudwaaq clan vs Cadaado clan? Who is fighting whom?

    Tigrayans are tough people. If I had to make a guess, I would say Abiy will end up the loser. No matter how much Abiy aligns himself with the Amharas, a bigger conflict between Amhara and Oromos is inevitable. Eventually, the last group standing will be the Tigrayans.

    Once again, Jawar speaks like he is the real boss running the show. @Old_Observer, if you are reading this, tell us more.
  9. I agree those two ministers are stars.
  10. There is no benefit for the federal government in this. Xaaf is right. Renewed tribal wars will set the country back decades.
  11. I fully believe Madoobe is more likely to survive this uprising from Gedo triggered by Farmaajo. Just like Gaas, his subclan is fully behind the Jubaland project and he has the muscle of the Kikuya next door. Madoobe may have no influence in Gedo (He never did), but if he keeps his alliance with the Harti wing of Kismayo populace, and maintains close ties with his Kikuya friends across the border, it will be very hard to unseat the dark man.

Erdoğan, first lady talk with Trump at dinner in Paris WWW.DAILYSABAH.COM President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan and first lady Emine Erdoğan engaged in a lengthy discussion with U.S. President Donald Trump during a dinner... Erdoğan and Trump were seated next to each other at dinner in honor of heads of state, government officials and international organization heads and their spouses, following an exhibition at the Musee d'Orsay.
  15. Disgust is a complex emotion. The Queen's country terrorized and killed millions around the world. The ambassador should express his disgust at his country's past.

    Caption this...Gondar Amhara State

    That picture doesn't send a good message. Farmaajo is becoming a tool awrka lagu kacsado at the expense of his own brothers. But I am not surprised.
  17. Not a fan of this Madoobe idiot, but a new kind of civil unrest fueled by two guys with Qatari money is coming. Why are they doing it? They are obsessed with staying in power. Will they last? History tells us, NO. It is a waste of valuable time, money and resources.
  18. Finally, Tallaabo will stop using the AMISOM bunker tag.

    @galbeedistrongly disagrees with that statement, me thinks.
