    Its allways good to read others perspective. Abukar Armans shares my view that the terror network al-shabaab, wahaabiyada and the so called "thousands of al-shabaab" invading soomali-galbeed is just another false-flag cashow for caabey axmaaro and his un-elected, menelik styled appointed cagjar in Soomali Galbeed. Hey who can blame him, the war on the TPLF has depleted his cash, the UAE dropped him off. The oromos  and qeero do not longer support him after he turned out to be a neo-mengistu.  

    As for Cagjar, as far as I know he us un-elected and no diffirent then those before him. Hand picked by the amxara-elite bent upon keeping the lid on ethiopias ultimate fate, the decoding or deconstruction of the black colonialism that tha Amhara war-lord and bestial murderor Meneleik did.  Read  Former Ambd Abukar Armans perspectives.

    In countries such as the U.S., there is an unwritten theory in a police investigation that assumes whenever a neighborhood robbery occurs, it was done by someone who not only had the motive to commit that crime but the basic intelligence to help time it well and to get away with it. In other words, it was committed by someone who lives or operates within a 5-miles radius around the crime scene. If your gut feeling is ‘such mentality, regardless of how logical it may sound, will keep the law-enforcement stereotypically myopic and perpetually racist,’ you are not alone. But that is a topic for another day.

    Meanwhile, an elaborately sophisticated attack carried out by more than 500 al-Shabab, and dozens of technical-armed trucks- against Ethiopia left many casualties and many unanswered questions. Granted, this was not a robbery.

    According to the VOA’s Investigative Dossier, “Officials from both sides of the (Somalia, Ethiopia) border confirmed that the attacks preoccupied Liyu police forces and distracted them as other heavily armed al-Shabab units crossed the border unopposed.” Moreover, the same program quotes an anonymous former al-Shabab militant who said the group was determined to erect its flag inside Ethiopia and then officially declare that “jihad spread to a new front.”

    The offensive, according to Matt Bryden of the controversial Sahan research group, “appears to be the start of a major, strategic initiative to establish an active combatant presence in Ethiopia, probably in the southeastern Bale Mountains.” How about that for a narrative express?

    Surely with the failure of the Somali Federal Government’s military and intelligence campaign as well as America’s deadly drone doctrine to decapitate and defeat al-Shabab, the terrorist group remains more dangerous than ever. That danger is made worse when governments sometimes engage in their own concocted threats to pave the way for one manipulative objective or another. 

    Here are some possible scenarios driving al-Shabaab’s incursion into the Somali region of Ethiopia:

    Scenario One: 

    It is the first step of a foreign-driven plan to spook China out of Ethiopia’s oil and gas-rich region. A few years ago, the Ethiopian government signed a multi-billion dollar deal with a Chinese company to develop petroleum and natural gas in the Somali region. Moreover, the company is to design storage, transportation, and marketing logistics as well as build pipelines for domestic and international supply. 

    On April 28, 2020, the Ethiopian government signed a $3.6 billion deal with a Virginia-based energy firm named GreenComm Technologies to construct an oil refinery in Ethiopia’s oil-rich Somali region. Reminiscent of the Somali facilitated British predatory capitalist Soma Oil and Gas, there is only one problem: the company has neither the expertise nor the credibility to be trusted with such a contract. And though the Ethiopian government indicated the willingness to cancel, no official report confirms that.  

    Scenario Two:

    A false flag scheme to re-shuffle the cards in the Horn with the derailment of the Horn Economic Integration engineered by the European Union, championed by Ethiopia, Eritrea, and Somalia, and funded by the U.A.E. Under such a scheme, a pretext for prolonged strategic military campaigns and political torpedoes launched from a selected federal state is established. So Ethiopia and Somalia, or President Hassan Sheikh Mohamud and Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed Ali, will spend the next four years riding a dangerous roller-coaster, as did President Mohamed Abdullahi Mohamed (Farmajo) and President Uhuru Kenyatta. Meanwhile, Somalia has secured membership in the East African Community (EAC) and a peace-keeping force that excludes Ethiopia. 

    Scenario Three:

    To further hammer Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed, who has already lost a loyal partner in the loss of Farmajo. Under this scenario, multiple deadly fronts are opened. This scenario is based on the assumption that the United Arab Emirates or President Mohammed bin Zayed had turned his back on the European project that this author criticized before and dropped Abiy Ahmed from his previous pivotal role. Of course, the natural replacement is none other than President Isaias Afwerki of Eritrea, who secured UAE a military base while it was actively partaking in the war in Yemen and just completed training 5000 Somali soldiers to provide military protection as UAE colonizes Socotra in partnership with Israel.  

    “The saga of these Somali soldiers has been full of twists and turns,” wrote Michelle Gavin, a security expert for the Council on Foreign Relations. This lucrative clandestine mercenary project was equivocated and denied by the Farmajo government until literally the last minutes before ceremonially handing over the presidential authority to the newly elected President HSM. 

    Scenario Four:

    To re-engineer a new balance of power that would end the ethnic cleansing of the Tigrayans and boost their military capacity to ultimately take over what is considered viable economic insurance- the Grand Ethiopian Renaissance Dam (GERD). This requires stretching the Ethiopian military power so thin by opening on it many military fronts. The coalition of the willing under this scenario may include Egypt, which considers the dam’s drastic impact on the flow of the Nile as an existential threat, Sudan, the U.S. And due to the rapidly changing geopolitics of the region, and Ethiopia’s steadily growing ethnic nationalism, it is likely to include U.A.E and Israel whose strategic and economic interest in the Nile water is no secret. 

    Scenario Five:

    A combination of the listed scenarios; and this could prove the most complex one to decode and deal with.       

    Relevant Context  

    For over a decade, Ethiopia has dominated the Bay and Bakool regions of the South West federal-state of Somalia. It has been its most reliable laboratory where Ethiopia trained and mobilized some of its most notorious clandestine allies, the violent neo-Islamists such as Mukhtar Robow (still held as a political prisoner) and his militia, and tribal secularists such as Abdirashid Janan and his militias for of subversion and security dependency (AMISOM). Intriguingly, the Shabaab militia that attacked Ethiopia is reported to have been trained in the Jubbaland federal state (Jilib and Ras Kamboni). According to the Governor of Bakool, their objective was to raise their flag inside Ethiopia. 

    To accept that Shabaab would carry out such a daring operation with such a reported large number of its militia out of Jubbaland while ignoring the temptation to take the jewel of that federal state – Kismayo – or to takeover U.S.’ only military base in Somalia and to chase the American troops out of that region requires an extremely wild imagination that some of us do not possess.

    The long awaited deployment of Al-shbaab to Ethiopia has finally happened.

    THere is a big war going, but we don't have any media who has the capacity to get there and file some serious news. All we got is Youtubers in dark rooms showing us pictures and fake news. So, let us ret to analyze the info we are getting from the Somali regional security leaders.


    Since the rise of Al-shbaab in Somalia  around 2006, they never attacked inside Ethhiopia despite the easy  access to  penetrate the border.  Najib Gardaad, a Nairobi based Kenyan journalist had written a long essay few years ago  to shed some light on how Al-shabaab selects its targets. He investigated how Al-shabaab refused to target Ethiopia despite the major wars that took place between the extremist movement and TPLF led Ethiopian army and the atrocities the Ethiopian forces had committed inside Somalia,


    He debunked the false narrative which  had described the strength of the Ethiopian  army as the main reasons Al-shbaab avoided to engage or attack Ethiopia. He argued that a suicide bomber willing to die doesn't care whether he targets a hotel, military checkpoints or army barracks. Furthermore, the border between Ethiopia and Somalia doesn't have barb wires, walls or rivers to discourage those willing to cross. THe Ethiopian army and the Somali Liyu police forces only control roads that cross the border and sometimes make random patrols in some  area to intercept vehicles carrying contraband.


    Mr. Najiib attributed the Al-shbaab attacks which reached as far as Kampala, Uganda and even Burundi as Ethiopian strategy to destabilize the economies of east Africa while they were growing to double digits. The Ethiopian economy was among the fastest in the world reaching 10% which was huge achievement. Mr. Najiib was lamenting about the constant Al-shbaab attacks inside Kenya which went from border towns to big commercial malls inside Nairobi. He even mentioned a local Somali owned airlines blown by a suicide bomber i his own seat which miraculously landed safely. He discussed the deep connections between former Al-shbaab leaders including Ahmed madoobe, Mahad Karatey and other who were in soome cases were captured and released from Ethiopian jails.


    With Al-Shabaab controlling border districts within Gedo, Bakool, Hiiraan and Galmudug, why they never bothered to attack Ethiopia.? They have every excuse on the books to target Ethiopia, especially when their forces were inside Somalia. Yet, Al-shbaab seemed to direct their forces only to Kenya and Somalia. 


    . If you are 17 or 18 years old  destitute and poor  kid in Bakool, Diinsoor, Qoryoolay, Jalaqsi or Dhuusamareeb, you will be delighted to be fed, clothed, trained and even offered a wife and get paid while they  brain wash you  as a  holly warriors. In fact, it is like joining the marines or national army.  THese young men do not decide who to kill or where to be deployed, they are blind mouse or a mad dog let loose among the targets chosen by their bosses just like mafia soldiers who are told to pull the trigger.


    By now, anyone with two-digit IQ knows that these Wahabi mad dogs are deployed by foreign intelligence while carrying the name of Islam. Since the American people will not accept the deployment of their soldiers to these unknown places where they can't even find in the map, these crazy terrorists will do the job. Some are called YPG, TPLF, Boko Haram, Al Nusra or Al-shbaab in the case of east Africa. So, the deployment of Al-shbaab to Ethiopia has begun.


    According to a colonel of Somali LIyu forces in Af Dheer and Liibaan of the Somali region of Ethiopia, this new Al-shbaab plans of attacks inside the region had started some two years ago when the war between the TPLF and Ethiopian forces started in the fall of 2020. They had already made the necessary contacts with the elders of the region, recruited foot soldiers and trained them in Jilib and Saakow in the Middle Jubba region which  is controlled by Al-shbaab. Just like the way  foreign intelligence operates, they transported their weapons deep inside the region and  buried them trenches. The boys were already inside after they concluded their training.


    Sources inside Somali Galbeed describe these Al-shbaab attacks and movements as well calculated deployment that will last months if not years. Most of the people recruited are from Liibaan, Jarar and AfDheer regions. They belong to the sub clans of Ahmed Madoobe and the Gare community of Liibaan. These were the former allies of the TPLF regime that was deposed by Abiy Ahmed few years ago. According to these sources these forces are two groups. The main Al-shbaab forces with battle wagons and technicals had came from JUbbaland regions while the others were cells that was activated from Ceel Kari and Jarar.  This wasn't an ambush or hit and run clashes. The Al-shbaab force that crossed from Bakool area had descended upon a Liyu police chewing Qat all night and unaware of the situation. Close to 200 of those were overun and their weapons taken. Those who came from behind the Liyu police line had cut the highway connecting Godey to Afdheer, and as we speak while the border to Bakool is secure, Al-shbaab is already inside Afdheer region. After the conclusion of  war in Caato and Yeed, the LIyu crossed to Bakool and killed more than a dozen of civilians for revenge and accused them of harboring   terrorist group. If this is the attitude the Liyu to kill innocents, they will definitely face a long insurgency and hostile populace.


    THere are two reasons that makes these Al-shbaab attacks deadly for Ethiopia. First the Liyu police traditionally is a paramilitary force trained by the TPLF to target the Somali people and mainly civilians. Few years back they achieved some success against the Oromo, but lately they couldn't stand a chance to similar forces with the same strength as the war between the Affar and Somalis had shown. THese kind of forces doesn't have any chances against Al-shbaab. The second dilemma, Ethiopia doesn't have a well-trained cohesive force anymore. The Amhara are concentrated in their region to fend of the TPLF attacks and save Amhara civilians from Oromia while provoking both Abiy, Oromo, TPLF and everyone else. If reports of Al-shbaab reaching west Hararghe are true, the Oromo itself will explode and Abiy might not have huge forces to deploy  over two thousand kilometers he shares with Somalia.


    President Mutafe Cumar must build better forces and rely on his own strength than wait the Ethiopian army. Also, the ONLF who were trying to take over the Somali region had been sidelined by Mustafe. They don't have any chances of taking over, and must wait the next election in 2026. We don't know yet, but even the ONLF itself could be part of these groups since their bosses in Nairobi support the deployment of Al-shbaab from Kenya to Ethiopia.


    Now, this new war could be very dangerous for some while it might bode well for others. Some of my friends believe that this deployment of Al-shbaab  to Ethiopia could be good news for Somalia and Kenya, and both of them might facilitate the movements of Al-shbaab from Jubbaland to Ethiopia. Others believe that the flat lands of JUbba can't protect Al-shbaab if the Somali forces and those from Jubbaland attack them and the mountain regions of Afdheer and Liibaan will be their new bases. Personally, I do believe that Al-shbaab can't survive inside Ethiopia and the only way they could move there is because of logistical support from Kenya, Jubbaland and the Americans. 


    Here are some of the major reasons Al-shbaab had deployed to Ethiopia.


    There are no concrete evidence to indicate one way or another , but there are political and economic reasons that point to certain directions.. The energy prices are going to the roof, and that false theory of climate change has been discarded by almost everyone. Both Kenya and Somalia want to extract natural gas and oil from the Indian ocean as soon as possible. In order to attract that investment, Jubba area must be secured. There were extensive meeting between Ahmed Madoobe and the British and American ambassadors for the last few months. I don't believe these guys are meeting him for drought relieve or building democracy. Madoobe had handpicked  the prime minister and will be moving to major regional moves.


    Among those moves are to completely stop two major development projects from China to the region. The first is to stop the construction of the gas pipeline China wants to connect from Godey to Djibouti. Both Berbera and Garacad are shorter distances, but the Chines want to deal with someone like Omar Ghelle whom they have strong relations. The Americans want to stop this with help of Al-shbaab and ONLF. The later had already attacked the project and killed some Chinese and Malesian workers in 2006/07.


    Second, the Americans don't want the Belt and Rood Investment (BRI) which will soon cross the Persian gulf port of Gowdar, Pakistan to the Indian Ocean and to Somalia, Ethiopia, South Sudan and deep inside landlocked African countries. Theses are involved couple of Somali ports, railways and roads. America want to shut down this now.


    Abiy Ahmed might have survived the TPLF war, Ahmara non stop complaints and Oromo skirmishes, but will not survive this new geopolitical chess.


    While we don't wish Al-shbaab or terrorist groups even to our worst enemies, if those who supply Al-shbaab with money, weapons, bombs, uniforms and other logistical help, want to  take them away from us and move to other places, we would welcome it. But if the move is to create another proxy war between Ethiopia and Somalia on behalf Egypt and other evil Arabs, may God help us.

    The reactions of Ethiopia could be deadly as well. 

    Nimankan dadkii inoo keenyay hadday ina dhafinanayaan waan soo dhaweynaynaa. 


    A good analysis on what might be happening. We are all in the dark. But one thing  thing is for sure, their is something breweing in a hot pot.   I will yet call it Al-Al-shabaab and I will tell you so.  Abtigis, aka Mudane Cagjar is probably a good guy but do not ever forget that he was directyly appointed by  whom I have ever called the biggest neftegna (amhara colonial settler) Abey Ahmed.  Before that, the monster was Cabdi Iley.  I beg you to  question. Have their happended anything else since then?


    If bush soldiers of ONLF who bravely I might say stayed in the Bush during the Cabdi Iey and AUN  martyrs like Nuur Huure Ciraqi  and nafte u hure the martyr and the intellectual Doolaad who went from European life to semi-deserts to Soomali-galbeed. When the Somalis rose and ONLF speeded up it attacks in 2007, aljazeera noticed it. The shrewd and vicous TPLF chose a man an tree electrcian who used to be called and then be asked to  climb up trees. He was chosed becouse of his absolute loyalty to a degree that even we Somalis with our culture we shocked. They launched a propoganda channel and made the whole area a no go area. Al-shabaab became the cow milk for TPLF. Diverse attacks by ALFR and OLF ONLF and 20 other various groups were blamed on Al-shabaab.


    Galbeedi, Al-shabaabs strategy was been wellknown, they made calculated decision to withdraw from Mogadisu after a vicious campaign of liberation. They isolated themselves in the fertile regions and shifted their strategy to win the peoples hearts and brain wash the youth with toxic non islamic whabism. Why would they now venture in Ethiopia? Somethings doesnt add upp here. According my sources the IC with Turkey Told Mudane XSM "either to eliminate Al-shabaab or its you who will be eliminated by them, amisom will not stay forever". XSM told openly the people to brace them for war.  Hence why the many international trips. Turkish drones are landing in Somalia.   Farmaajo said the same thing but he was populist and lacked the backing of IC.  The IC strategt then was lets to contain them. They do not have sea port hence are not so dangerous. That changed with Afghanistan.

    Alternative theories? Might it be die-hard ONLF soldiers  U-WSLF staging last ditch attacks and Cagjar who doesnt want aknowlidge that using the al-shabaab game to unite Ethiopia as the orders given to him?.

    And now 17 years later, the alleged mass killer Cabdi Qeybdiid claims to be a victim od his own. Waa adduunyo xaalkeeda. 

    As your eedaadada  aun used to say "nin aan YAABIN AYAA YAABAY!. A warlord who taped his own warlordism in 1991 using the victim card. 

  4. As a parent, a couple of years ago during  foregin trip I visited some relatives of mine.  A young girl was completely disabled. As we were having the dinner the poor girl went nuts. She dragged the table and the casho-sharaf for me and my wife was completely destroyed.  The relative of mine simply bought a pizza and we usally commented on somali politics.  What amazed me what his complete deny of the situation. Out of courtesy neither did I mention anything about the girls condition. Thats how the somali mindset is. Ignore what you can, qari waxi la qari karo, but we have a saying, "waxii la qariyo qurun aa ku jiro".   While many here are busy commenting on Fahad Yasin,  or Farmaajo or Xassan Sheikh Maxamud and isolated fufu-lands that completeyt even lacks the basic requirments to give its sacred clan members basic water and education, no one wants talk about the big pink  elephant in the room.  We Somalis have tendency to be full of emotions but including me lack complete sense of honesty on describing the situation on the ground.  When the taleban literally stormed the Kabul the president fled  no Afghan political commentary would talk about the future.  We are not afghans. We are not pashtuans. We are Somalis.

    But a foot-note, during a cabinet meeting headed by Rooble to adress security issues in the full company of all ministers asked the defence minister "wasiir, how are our armed forces in Somalia". A minister who I do not like to name who is famous for cracking jokes said  "what army,. heck I cant event go to ceelasha biyaha, yet alone to Baladwayne by car". The ministers laughed while the poor defence minister tried reply in the priestly cermonial way of "dear prime minister, the army is ready to defend the countrey". That night according to my source many folks went home terrified or fully aware of how things could unfold..

    Somalia is a former failed state.Clan- Federalism was adopted  in order rid Mogadishu those from the arid cenral places of Somalia. It was created to defuse clan-tensions and was way 30-years of population who has only seen anarchy to go back to the fufu-lands and ask their basic rights. It was a way to give time to FGS rebuild vital instututions.  Even the the SNM clan-based triangle state seperatists have not been able to build a single road since the devestatating 1991-civil war.  Somalis say, and even the Koran affirms it, yaqiin, real facts on the grounds is gained by true insights. I visisted Somalia pre farmaajo and what I saw was a huge NGO-funded government.  A government guarded by emotional clan-actors by thousands of Amisom soldiers.  The roads linking Mogadishu to Gaalkacayo, baladwayne, Baidoa and to kismaayo are completely cut off.  I asked a general who guess what: Was working in his 80-ties about the state.  He simply responded "well we are under seige".  

    While our glorious Islam and its traditional sunni islam, shafite madhab and asharite caqiidah have today a resennance in southern Somalia and are a strong factor in maths of Somalia the truth is that the 30-years of anarchy wahabism and its ofshoot al-qaida had a upswing. Hey who can judge them? No law no nothing.  Who remembers the days when Mogadishu was like a scene from a apocolyptic film like madmax where the town was divided by certain clans.?  Anyways  while Somalia is today bickering from Farmaajo, or Xassan Sh Maxamud or another non-actor, note the word "non-actor".   The Somali FGS is western funded giant NGO project that wants the important seas free from pirates and ofcourse a non--alqaeda state that inflicts terror on its citizens.   14 years or 13 years of Amisom and and war with Al-shabaab has taught Al-shabaab some vital strategies.  Some even go to shabaab-courts instead of state courts.  Jamal Osman was indeed a PR achievment for al-shabaab but al-shabaabs decesion to give an open interview and show its "state enabling" factors have made me deeply worried.   America has shown that it can negotiate with its devils. If they did it with taliban they can surely with al-shabaab. If Al-shabaabs secretive shura council  decides that they will cut the relations with the egyptian arab that hardly knows black Somalia  is on the map and denounce their alliance with al-qaeda that makes room for negotions.    The Western nations are now backslide, americans fifth fleet is in the china sea. Somalia is a secondary issue. The funding for Amisom dimimishing and if my reports are not wrong. Western nations are even contemplating a time-table for exit.


    While I was in Somalia I noticed  a intresting thing. Many becouse of 30 years of  anarchy and free roam for wahabi ideoloogists, many in Somalia have in a way in a sub-cuncious way already al-shabaab mentality. The absence of a nation state and just put forward a few questions and you will see  that many have been burned by Ictisam (the mother of al-Shabaab), Those who declared jihad against Pres Abdullahi Yusuf but remain silent today. Wahabism is in crisis. It is sad to see that the FGS is not using its reresources to combat the ideology and to empower our traditional ulama ( I am not talking about those sufis who deviated in central Somalia).

    In summary friends,  Farmaajo was marker for Somalia.  A D-man elected by celebortary gunfire in Mogadishu.  Imagine that to 1991. Uts sad that he squanderd his years of trying to get his men in god forsaken fufu-lands instead of playing the cermonalial healing president. The president that should have lambasted the clan leaders for not giving basic water and educatiob to its clan-enclaves  now called fufu- or bubu lands.   The only good thing he did was that he did not destroy Qatar-Turkish alliance.

    But all of these people are non-actors. Once the dollars run out and Mahad Karataay, the al-shabaab khwaarij coming out to the media and denouncing Al-qaeda we might one day see them over run the capital.  Think about it, if billions of dollars in afghanistan and state army building could not do a thing why would it be diffirent in Somalia?

    Somalis are muslims, Dr Baadiyow Phs dissertions offers the best solution for Somalia. In order for the Somali governmment to beat Al-shabaab they need to ideologically combat and re-educate Somalia,  an Islamic Somalia that denies Al-shabaab its core arguemnt of being the only legitmate islamic  is needed. Salary for the state Imams.Its sad to see when Saudi-Arabia finally admitted the menace ommited to this Ummah that we Somalis are stilll struggling to find out where did these guys come from.

    See the interview and see how Mahad Khwaarij is actually in sarbeeb planning. Anyways, Fahad Yasin, Farmajjo, Xassan Sh,  ----  These are indeed non-actors.   Its time that the Somali government actually aknowlidges that the city is under seige. Many in this forum might not agree with that but hey  what are the facts on the ground and how do you define a seige?.  Is Somalia ready accept  Turkish troops and fully ally itself further?   Greater strategic decisions needs to be done.  Once trumpists are in power they will not care who they will negotiate with.  Pan-Somalism  intertwined with Pan-Islamism with Sheekh Xassan Banna and our local dariiqoyinka can only save us from this menace. Only Somalis. Not Amisom, no other force. Some might accuse of panicking, but think about it, these guys have been around for  14 years. They have shown that clan-discord can not destroy them.  So whats the solution? More ghost soldiers? 
















  5. Honesty is what what we need. Farmaajo, was elected, 30 years ago the communist dictator destroyed the nation, socially, psycologocaly, in any way you can describe it. The election of farmaajo was an affrimation that that the civil war  clan-hatred was dead. Indeed a cousin to thar communist dictator that did not have the moral responsibility to hand over the power to the manifesto or flee the countrey the as mengistu did was elected. Farmajos election was a victory. But he failed. He succeeded in the foregin policy but failed utterly to realise that that the Somalia he inherited was a fragmented Somalia. Instead of trying to break the seige of mogadishu that Shabaab are doing all he did was try to get his men in power in isolted fufu-lands.  His lack of understanding that Somalia was a failed state and that his role according to the guidelines of the federal principals was try to teach the somali populations to demand basic water and education from those clan based "maaamulo gobooledyo". He even tried to do a coup. I am glad his gone. Lets face it,  farmaajo got the election in right time while he was dragging on.


    The tension he created was not needed. He was simply not a man who had good advisers. He was naive, sitting with Abey Ahmed and Cafwerki in conferances made himself think that he really controlled Somalia. Nobody in this forum wants to aknowlidge this. But I would all want you to listen Jamal Osmans description of Somalia under al-Shabaabs rule. The despotic demonic cult rules Somalias with a iron hand. Ceelasha biyaha and jowhar, towns outside Mogadishu is under the direct controll of Al-shabaab and the al.shabaab is biding their time.


    In the mean while, the Somali people do not have access to basic things, like clean water, free education. No one is raising these issues. In Summary, I am glad Farmaajo was elected, I am glad he stood by Turkey and Qatar, but I am happy is gone. We do not need naive leaders. We need people who realise who things are on the ground.

  6. Lets be reflective MMA. Weather you like it or not Hassan Sheikh knows that Somalia is a fragile state that needs reconcilation after the 25 years of the regressive somali civil war.  Farmaajos advisers were all 75 plus who served Barres regime and who were old or senile. But Frankly speaking, its all about instututions MMA. Hassan Sheikh knows the real politik of Somalia. When Jubba land under madoobe  entered the kismaayo with kenyan support Hassan Sheikh Mohamud realised he did not have the military strength or would it wise to engage in a political haggle. What did he do? He accepted him. He created Golaha Qaranka amaanka where all somali local leaders would host.

    That symbolism showed that Somalia was going forward.  Farmaajo unfortunately waisted his time by trying gain absolute power in federal states. He extended his time. He depleted the public trust. While Barre was ousted he was welcomed by waited the political power  engaging in a never ending power struggle. Hassan Sheikh M  is a man of the ngos. He knows peacebuilding. He only fault his sorrounding himself by incompitent advisors. For example. Mahad Salaad is tainted man, a  man who did not deserve that positition.  HSHM  has learned from his misstakes and he can fully concentrate of Mogadishu and securing Mogadishu. Breaking the seige of al-shabaab. 

    HSHM  handed over fully functioning mamuuled goboleedyo and state instututions to Farmaajo while Farmaajo handed him a secret army trained in Eritrea. This army probably comes from all somali clans but the secrecy arround it hurt him politically.   On the foregin policy of HSM is fully aware while sitting with Cafwerki and Abey that unlike them his state is fragile one and no hybris will enter his head. Unlike Farmaajo who really thought he had power when his own minister could not even travel to ceelasha biyaha. That hybris is gone. He is also a man willing to work with the outside world. Weather we like it or not Somalia is with its fragile state needs all the support it can. He will continue the alliance with Turkey.  In conclusion: Xassan Sheekh Maxamud will not waste 4 years by trying force  the federal state in submission. He knows the road-map is Mogadishu. Atmis demands  that the ICC-community demands that. His focus will be securing Mogadishu and the state instututions. 

    Regarding the secceionists. Unlike Farmaajos emotional-based politics for apoligizing and then getting nothing. He knows how to deal with the extreme anti-somali clan oriented city state iss or fuu land.  He will deny them the money. No one in this forum knows but the hotell bills of Muuse Biixi during his horrendous American trip was paid by the federal government of Somalia. Nothing of that sort will happen.  Racist clanists will not receive support. The young youth or flocking to the Mogadishu and work and live in Mogadishu.   Thats how it should be.

    The nepotism of HSM is gone. Give him 6 months,  I know as a somali nationalist MMA that you want a return to a strong central Somalia where somalism and pan-somalism prevails. We all want that. But the countrey my friend has gone the a vicous  civil war that I dubbed the "the regressive jahhiliyya war". We need healing.  Federalism gives the clan fanatics  a breathing spot.

    Its time though that HSM and the federal government of Somalia actually gives information to the population of Puntland, and Koonfurgalbeed etc that they should demand clean water, education from their leader,   To sum it up. Hadii waraabi aas ku noqday dhuuso mareeb oo doodisa dhuuso mareeb iyo guriceel ka doodayo nabad waa la helay.



  7. MMA, sometimes official news are offical while sometimes the official news are dubious. Regarding the eritrean "somali armty in asmara the news are complicated and the bitter truth behind this news is baffling and somewhat bizarre and shocking.

    Farmaajo and his crew literally wanted hijack the the small history of the federal somali republic.I dont not know. Did he get power crazy or did not he trust the defacto clan militias that make the federal somali armt in Mogadishu and who are majority from the southern Somalia aka not gedo. According to my un-official inside news Farmaajo asked the khabiith, the dictator and opressesor of muslims in Eritrea Cafewrki to include eritrean soldiers in Amisom and train 15 000 somali troops. 


    Farmaajo dazzled by the cermonies of being a president and being receiced as one forgot that his federal republic of Somalia is a countrey or a republic on life support and healing from a 30 year long civil war.  Anyways cash-strapped Eritrea with no dollars in the communis african north korean state saw the oppurtinity in this. Millions of dollars for a 20 000 Eritrean troops in Mogadishu and that would be happily obliged the obey farmajo through cafwerki. The CIA and the western powers who created the little red-book for Somali leaders to follow called "the road map" and Turkey saw the dangerous outcome of this.  The turkish intelligence together with the cia directly adviced farmaajo but to  he simply did not want to listen. He thought he would be re-elected and the the re-election would give him the legitimacy to forcefully capture Mogadishu.


    The story goes on. Do you remember when the horn african ambassador to Somalia met with Cafwerki in Khartoum?  A defentive  choice was given to the eritreans. The sanctions that the americans lifted would re-intruduced if an eritrean soldier set foot in Somalia. Afwerki who 7 years ago surviced a coup attempt dumped farmaajo and the idea of eritrean army roaming the in the streets of Mogadishu. The power balance would have shifted if the eritreans came and we would probably have had seen a civil war. The lack of definitive power-booster to either side is what is making Somalia slowly healing. The neutrality of Amisom is sacred  and its not non-interference in Somali politics is whats keeping the federal government together and stopping Somalia going back to the 30 years of regressive civil war.

    Now begs the pardon, Why did Farmaajo hide that a Somali army was being trained in Asmara?  The anwer is obvious.  But whats more dangerous, imagine the guy gettting elected and having EPLF roaming the streets and taking informal orders from Farmaajo? That would be end for the self healing fragile state we are going through.  By the way? Did you guys know that 15 000 strong Somali community that solely compromise of  small clan related Mohamed Siyaad Barre  thrives in Asmara?. Most of red berets hailed from this.

    A side note. Remember when Farmaajo almost called civil war and army refused to take his orders during his couop attempt?  The presidential advisors, 80 years olds from the Barre time called Amisom generals 20 times and tried to frame the legitamate opposition as Al-shabaab. While the fat african generals took their bribes they never breached the the non-interference code and simply answerd "they are nor al-shabaab and our mandate is cleary not to interfere internal somali politics.


    Farmaajo was a populist, a man who grew up with the nomenclatura of Barres clan-regime. He never saw the ugly civil war. He and people like him literally belive that they and only they are Somalia in its abstract form.  Imagine if the guy would have been elected again.  Unlike HSM who lived through the evil days dark days of the 25 years of post Barre civil war,  He understands who fragile Somalia is.    Farmaajo made one good thing, and its that he did not stray away from our alliance with Turkey and Qatar.



  8. Sometimes, some events are game-changers. The fall of berlin wall and communism was such an event. I can today with 100 percent confidence say that Somalia entered a new phase when the first elections where held in Somalia and the TNG became the TFG. I would say say that post-civil war Somalia with USC SSDF SNM SPM and unarmed orgnisations like SNU are gone. That era past and buried. When Somalis elected a person who had affiliations with the ousted Barre that was stress-test for the young federal republic.  30 years ago Somalis were clapping the hands 1991 january but litte did thet know that society would literally collapse and we would have Somalia that reminds us from apocplyptic films like mad max with Mel Gibson.  Farmaajo failed, he failed utterly with his populism. He wasted his few years by trying to force the federal states to be vassal states under him. Little did he know that whole concept of federalism was created in order for the countrey to heal.

    Everyone got a region. Instead trying harden the state instutions and becoming a symbol of change by demanding federal states to give clean water free education to the population he was seen as an uprooter.   Somalia is patronage state with funding coming fron the UN. He ousted the UN. The positive  and lasting effects of Somalia under Farmaajo was  his un-wavering alliance with Turkiye and Qatar. He never doubted and stuck with these gracious countries.

    A close relative of mine openly supported Hassan Sheikh becouse he has firmer understanding how fragile the state is in Somalia. Hassan Sheikh saw the writing on the wall and recognised the Jubba land.  He then created the Security meetings where all regional states would meet.  His biography is one filled with working with NGOS with peacebuilding and his ties Islaax and sufism is commendable. Somalia faces now  two challenges.  Somaliland has no relevancy as the world sees it as a regional state within Somalia. Behind hum bug of the seccionusts the truth behind the closed doors Somaliland receives funding from FGS and demanded its share. What we southerners can do is commend the tribal 3 city state for having calm and security. Somaliland is a non issue. They are Somalis living in peace and should get every penny they rightly do so.  Its been 30 years, the younger generation of Hargeysaa are coming to Mogadishu, nobody cares anymore about three tribal cities demanding seperatism. Pan-Somalism alive.

    1---The primary challenge to and a existential threat to FGS Somalia is undoubtlt Al-shabaab. Weather we like it or not, the terror group is more structural and has more dicipline as an as a blood thirsty organisation  thet gorges the blood of muslims. Al-shabaab have withstood Amisom and nothing is permanent as Barre said in a interview in 1978.  Amisom will leave, Americas battle fleed is leaving the middle east. If Al-shabaab cuts its relations with al-qaida and tries to potray itself as the taliban we really could see an afghabistan collapse. That collapse took weeks. In Somalia it would take days.

    Security and securing a victory against all wings of al-shabaab, ictisaam  and establishing a culture of Somalis asking "where the hell did this ideology" come from is crucial.   The Civil war in Somalia has finally ended.  It is now time to end the khwaarij menace in Somalia.  Algeria went through it and the late Bouteflika defeated the takfiris in a bloody war. Turkey could here be more proactive. I do not see any reason for Xassan Sheeikh rejecting a military alliance with Turkey. They know how to the defeat an insugency, They defeated the communist-leninist PKK kurdish terror group that murderd consertvative muslim kurds and turks.  Xassan Shaykh needs to look for military assistance once the europeans and cadaanka cut their money and simply leave just as they did with Iraq and Afghqaanistan. That countrey my friends is Turkey and no one else. They sent Imaam Axmed Gurey 50000 cismaani mosqueteers (canisari)  and they could do it again,

    If we are under the trust ship of the UN, why our leaders spell it out for us?

    Furthermore, how long do we have to wait until we could defend ourselves. all we need is general mobilization of the locals in coordination with the national army. 

    Other than the criminal elements which could be defeated with an organized intelligence, Al-shabaab in almost unspent force. The elimination of the Gaalkacayo cell had shown us that Al-shbaab is about mafia style killings that could be exposed. They don't have huge standing rebel army, but highly mobile group that intimidation for the unarmed civilians. They are not even close 10% of the Taliban. Just unleash Fahad Yasin to the Bakaraha based network and you could eliminate 50% of the financers. WE lost two years of bickering and electioneering.

    All you need is few determined security leadrs. 

    Galbeedi,  Nobody has the chutzpa to say it openly? It always been like that,the manta we will build a  strong somali army. That army cracked under farmaajo along vicious clan lines.   Secondly Ustaad galbeedI. Al-shabaab has been a fighting force for 15 years, thats a long time. They have evolved, U mentioned bakaaraha, It is they are in controll of it. .

  10. With covid out of the blue my die hard habit of visiting the mosque and then the local somali cafe here in our nordic countrey after work has not gone away.Yesterday while I was sitting and snipping coffe our local news guy and our clique of coffe and politics lovers had a discussion. I usally stay silent. Everyone was from his cosy living conditions in a nordic countey was  talking about "Xassan Sheekh said that" Farmaajo said that.  Who said what and who and the tit for the tat discussions went along.  I left the table and gave an excuse to my so called "intellectual friends" and went home.  No Somali intellectual have the bolds or the chutzpa to say how Somalia is. Nobody wants to talk about the pink big elephant in in the room. Its  a bizarre world amongst us Somalis.

    It has been 10-12 years since Amisom came to Somalia. When I last visited Somalia in 2019 and met Khayre and the speaker of the parliament I myself did not have the courage to say how things were. I had breif "isku sawir exchange with him"  What I saw was a government limited to Mogadishu, A government commanded by Amisom. The serpant and the terror group Al-shabaab had full controll of the countrey. Every road leading from Mogadishu to either these bantunistans or should I say maamul-goboleedyo, the road was cut of.  If you wanted to go to Baidoa then you had to take a plane. Imagine, the president of Koonfurgalbeed not being able to drive to Mogadishu.  I sat down  with a friend of my father who was now in his 80-ties and a general and who  was a prosecutor in the military  tribunal and who by chance was my  mentor and neighbor where I live had a dinner

    A devout man of god from sunni sufi order raxmaaniya  order but a loyalist to the core  to what ever government that was in power.  He was delighted to see me and and me him. While security cleared me we talked and we exchanged some religous books He  began  as a soldier and then a policeman. I will not say further in order not to give any clues who he might be.  I directed my questions to him over dinner and he had the boldness and truthfullness to say how things were. He literally said we are encircled. They the terror group al-shabaab are now biding their time and have even infiltrated the government.

    He even said, "xxx, ababa, dont you even realize that Somali society have been bitten by their venemous bloody ideology that you may see somalis who unwilling and who they themselves do not know about it have al-shabaab values.  Then  it struck me, Everyone in the Somali  cafes would criticise the government but no one even dared to mention al-shabaab. Some even fused our beutiful religion with some al-shabaab tendencies.  Nothing is permanent. D-day came to Afghanistan when the americans departed and everything collapsed. I called my xxx who was a minister at that time and xx said that every somali minister was watching the events unfolding. Rooble called the cabinitte and asked the bizarre question "how is the state of the federal government army". A minister with no portfolio and who is known for cracking jokes answerd "what the xx are you talking about, we cant even go to xxxx within Mogadishu". Everyone laughed, then came the silence and everyone went home, That day everyone sent corrupted money to kenyan banks.

    Somalia is dictated by roadmap layed out by western governments and the UN.  Shaykh Sharif, Xassan Sheekh, Farmaajo, It does not matter, the next president has no mandate except either to heal the countrey or be power hungry grabber like farmaajo but he has to follow the road map.  Atleast under Xassan Sheikh the bantunistans that of maamul goboleedyo were created. The whole federal system was created in order ease clan tensions. Have we Somalis seen Somalis in galmudug demand clean water and free education from their clan elected leader? No?. Demonstrations against al-shabaab?  People even talking about them?  The venemous murderous terror bandits that hail from a ofshoot of the wahaaabiya  are now well established.  While americas influence is declining and Ethiopia weakended to even have a say about Somalia, the paradigm shift in the world is being felt in Somalia. Last month ago news came out that Amisom will be dismantled into another form, a limited one where the Somali army would play bigger picture.  Here comes another pink elephant? The same somali army that fractured over clan-lines over Farmaajos attempted failed power grap`?-

    In conclusion D-day might come to Somalia. The sad thing is that the wahaabiyada terror group Al-shabaab swore allegiance to an arab who probably has problem pointing out  Somalia on the map. The taliban though never did that. Waale yabaaye, no one is willing to talk about the pink venemous elephant.In order for FGS to succeed they need to adress the terror group. They need mobilise  popular mobilisation units just as the Iraqis did when they eradictated a more blood thirsty monster, Daacish. Who ever gets elected needs to understand he is not a president of a free state.  Logic dictates that with large foregin troops on your land, albeit to help you, you are limited.  Al-shabaab have shown  that they can stay latent, their ideology after the 30 years of mayhem are drawing recruits. They have been able to regroup. They are not stupid or dumb. Their strategy now seems to bid their time.

    Indeed its a bizarre world.  As proverb says "Nin aanan yaabin ayaa yabaay"

    I listened to Hassan Cali Khayre's speech, it wasn't bad. He made some good points. 

    However, his comments about starting serious talks with Somaliland had me scratching my head. Under his Prime Ministerialship, he left no stone unturned to try to isolate Somaliland and stop all links with International Community. His Planning Minister even wrote to the UK and requested the UK to stop funding the Somaliland Development Fund. 

    That is not all, he spent days begging the United Arab Emirates to stop its investments in Somaliland. Even went to meet the Dubai Sheikh in person to try to make his government relevant to the DP World deal. He requested for him to even sign the papers only to show that his gov't was involved somehow in someway. The UAE officials rejected completely. 

    Somalilanders are particularly inward looking people who spend majority of their time talking about their internal politics and seldomly looking outside Somaliland. But when they are challenged, Somaliland respond. Somaliland has tremendously achieved a lot more in terms of its external relationship than it did in the 10 years before 2017. 

    So for Hassan Ali Khaire to come on the podium and exclaim that he will make everything easy for Somaliland, if he is elected President of Somalia. It is a realisation that playing hardball does not work with Somaliland.



    I am sorry to burst your ability to conventrate your analysys on the  three city tribal seperatist republic, call Somaliland call it Isa-@@k land, what ever you want but for the most Somali people your issue is a non-issue. A deadly insurgency is going in southern Somalia where a fragile federal government is starting to make it its baby steps. Facts on the table is that it is recognised.  Weak as it maybe, and lacks the security that Somaliland has an undeniable fact is that with recognition comes dictations on the internal affairs of a countrey. I dont know if can get rid of yourself with propoganda or sixirka of the SNM but as a person who knows what goes on in the federal government of Somalia, its a well known secret that hotell bills that Muuse Biixi sleeps in when he pays a visit to Addis, or the donations to Somalia that should go to to north is approved and stamped by Mogadishu. Thats the reality.  The hey day when the north could point the finger and say to the world  "hey, we have security while the south is it chaos" is gone. The FGS, weather I like it, or not is a fully recognised state. What made the leaders in three city- somaliland project go nuts is how they were delegated to to be informal maamul goboleed.  Forget the pr-campaign, the truth is that leaders of Hargeysaa met evert month the FGS and deliver the bills in secret while other bantunistans do not.  You might be a kid fed by hatred but belive, thousands of Somalis from Somaliland are in mogadishu doing buisness.   Its been 30 years of zombie minded saar beating of "aqoonsi" but the upper class knows thats gone. That project failed. What they now want is power sharing agreement.  Somalis will be Somalis.  Analyze your habits, your whole analysis on the elections came down to Khayre forbidding Dubai.  As Somali nationalist or Somali-land nationalist your concern should have been why on hell is Dubai trying buy up all ports in Africa? From Massawa to Assab to even foes in Puntland?  Why? To keep black somalis down.  Even the somaliland parliament understood this. 

  12.  Another clan-obsessed documentary about three city states, fuufu-lands, bubu-lands call them what ever you want. Lets be honest to each other. Its a tribal enititey trying to to be seperate while other somali tribes in somaliland do not even agree with them. Nobody is dumb. The only thing I could say to to them as a southerner is that I hail them for the peace they have.

    • Haha - That was funny. You made me laugh! 1

  13. What can you say, Ilaahay xishoodka nagama qaato. We approching 15 may, SYL days, I bet the founers would curse these people from their graves if they knew that their struggle have been hijacked by opportunists.

    Personally, This is the reason its to hard to make a commentary on Somali politics, I dont want to poke the dead but I have said it before, in 2019 Mengistu the short midget amxaro khabiith was interviwed by VOA amharic and was asked by his legacy. He said "I did not turn the countrey into a Somalia". While Mengistu locked the weapons depot and shot Amxaaro generals who wanted to arm the Amxara people, Somalia  then president was arming clans just in order to stay in power. That says a lot does it not?

    You wander into Somali cafes and the news is about what Farmaajo say, What did Xassan Sheekh say? or the cursed seperetatists 3 town bantunistans leaders say. The truth is that no one actually says the bloody truth. We have serpant, a venemous one, a terror group that no one discusses about and who are lurking in the bushes and who swore an allegiance to an arab who doesnt even know where Somalia is.  Even the taliban did not do that. We have a government that could be examplified by a old man nearly dying if he doesnt get his foregin oxygen. Nobody asks what will happen if the foregin oxygen ends. Nothing is permanent. We saw that  in Afghanistan.

    The federal system with its 4.5 formula was a way to cool down tribal tensions. We do not even a public that demands clean water, free education from their "fufu-lands bubu lands" and what ever damned maamul goboleed thet come from.

    Lets be honest to each other. Somalia has indeed taken a step forward but it has regressed to its pre-colonial mindset. 



    • Like 1

  14. Tragic and bizarre whats happening. I fully agree with deputy minister of planning Drs Fahma Axmed Nuur. She  and other intellectualls were one of the writers of the distuurka of federalism. Its ironic know hów it was backfired and has been used. 

    All somali stood stand upp against the injustice happening. 

  15. The professor residing in Savannah have uncovered facts that we knew in Southern Somalia, Galbeedi Uweys al Baraawi was a himself a diciple of Sheekh.sayady-sadaati Cabdi raxman Seylaci was born in Mogadishu and his offshoot Zeylaciya begins from warsheek up to Djabouti.

    No one is perfect, and no one can deny Sayidkas zeal for his anti-colonialism. Certain  tribes concluded aliances in the north with the British just as Salaxadin Ayuubi was at the beginning the fighting the "islamic emirates" that were sheilded by the crusaders.  He had no choice and from a  geo-political view point his war upon the Zeylaciya after they rejected his efforts for a common jihad can be understood.

    Whats the problem is though how the kacaan and speciallly D-folks supressed information about how Somalis resisted colonialism. Wthile the british had his eyes on the docks and was doing missionary works the Italians were building roads,  factorties and inviting landless italians to settlle in Jowhar. In a concencus in the 1950  italians were 40 procent of total population of mogadishu.

    The unuka and banaadiri resisted were brutallt massacred. Who was Shaykhs Uweys diciple? the famous  one, he was from the unuka and his son was one of the members of 13 SYL.

    A brief example, the saho or tsahi people are just like us, cushitic and nomadic, The Italians succeeded with brutality convert 20% of them. Why did they succeed their but not in Somalia.  A post-colonial stuy regarding Somalia, one without bias needs to be done.

    I am personally proud of the Sayidka but for the VOA to call Idajaa whom I consider to be a modern form of the dark ages, travellers who worked by storytelling, Idajaa for the first time saying Sheikh Uweys conspired with the Italians was schocking. The old kacaan D propagandanist did his outmost the blacken the shaykhs reputuation now that Idajaa is old fraild. Yaab!

    What makes ina godane bad and daahir aweys a great  hero. Its  qabil

    Dahir Aweys rejected Al-aqeda alliance and could be compared to a taliban while godane was the one who led al-shabaab to join an international alliance of terrorism. Becouse of his actions no one can negotiate with them. Thats not qabil thats a fact. 

  17. In highly criticised interview made the famous abwaan Idajaa who has for 40 years used his mouth brag about his beloved Sayid made an interview regarding why Sayidka killed Sh-Aweys. Before Idajaa would  say "The sayid  saalixiya sufi order did not mean it and some extremist dervishes did the act". 2021 He finally said that Shaykh Aweys who spread Islam the Qaadaria with its ofshoot uweysiya into Malawia, tanzania, Kenta, Congo, he said that the martyr had agreed with italians to be buffert with Italians  and was there for agent for colonilists. Indeed Shaykh Awes al barawi is without a doubt the greatest Somali , second is Axmed Gurey. He was the one who gave the fatwa that the mug of a infidel is naajis. After the Italians had bombed Hamarwayne the banaadiri tribes were conquered by the Italians and  Sheeikh aweys went into  deeper side of Somalia. I strongly say that he is the one and only Somali that Somalis have written about as historical academic sources. His 40 diciples were spread south and north. Regarding him being a colonial stooge, Shaykh Aweys belived in passive resistance and withholding the faith when Italians where in a hurry with missionary work. In Eritrea the bilen and saho people   and nomads who are cushitc , 15% of them became catholics.   Why did they succeed when in Eritrea but failed miserably in Somalia?

    Shaykh Aweys respons to this question in book Jawhadatal nofoos  " My love for him (Muhammed all, and protecting it (imaanka)  from them (colonialits) shall be my destination.  Shaykh Aweys al Baraawi made dikri somali lyrics,  when the chants became in Somali and Somalis could understand it hard for them to convert. An italian Phd scholar, a woman wrote that germans could not do any missionary amongst the tanzanian oweysiiya ,  

    Nobody today knows that the head of SYL, sakhawadiin was the son of Shaykh Aweys,  Barre , the kacaan government did not want to a conflict  but decided to choose Sayidka, a man who cursed tribes and shed muslim blood.   I do not have any doybt the Sayid was a black or white thinker and that he hated the colonialists. His killing of Aweys was purelt strategic so that he could gain the upper hand over the mass following the Qaadariya had compared to his little know Saalixiya order.

    Shame on VOA to take a such a biased man Idajaa and not even give a single minute the family.  Who amonst you here knew SYL GUDOOMIYE sakhawadiins father was the martyred Sheikh Aweys al baraawi? Not mant.


    A funny storry, as a young lad we had Somali teacher from Las-Anod who was famous Somalia as trader and had a key position in the socialist party as a young lad. We could not understand dardaaran, he explained it us and our hearts was filled with sympathiyor the sayid.  At home I mentioned this for my mother and elderly father who came to visit us for a month and grandmother. My father said "sporko  while they were having a coffe. They said "son, that man was killer, a simple bandit, he even killed sheekha aweys".  Next week as I was a loud mouth I  said it openly "Ninkaan dadka in uu dili jiray maad noo sheegtid, sheekh aweys in uu dilay  af islam ama af gaal dad in uu ka dhahay gainst the Baidoa ppl". The Las-Anod teacher was shocked and called my mom". My father said "qashinka aad dadka ku shubeyseen in ey dadka ogeen miyey kula tahay,''  Nevertheless that teacher and father passed away alle ha naxariisto, I am happy that teacher taught me dardaaran and all of those poems, atleast we had fighter like Omar mukhtar. Bur Idajaaa with his big mouth accusing the shaykh of being a colonialist spy thats to much. 


  18. The one man show continues with his pentacostal christian belifs that he is the "chosen" one to lead Ethiopia. A year ago he was smiling in Mekelle and declared the war over and now he has rebels at the doorsteps infront of the capital. 20 % of all officers were Tigrayans in the Armey and they left for the TPLF. What you have now is a rag tag militia composing of oromos and amharas, I have said it before.

    This war will be decided by the oromo people. TPLF loves to brag but its not popular and could not cut the road to in fierce fightings with our afar cousins. They can not march into the capital.  But they are  smart. They made an alliance with some oromos, all muslim oromos are against Abey lets see if that Jaal can actualy bring the christian western oromos together and fire a single shot. A single shot is now what it take spread panic in Addis.

    Oromos, are many but far to much divided. This war will be decided by them.  But what ever happens Ethiopia is now a failed state. In peacefull regions of Oromiya, qeero youth stormed the police stations and infiltrated the security apparatus. Dire Dawa police force is now run by a former OLF commander Ahmed maru. Lets see if he defects.

    Ilaahay nigu dhaarshay, does Abey Amxaaro really think afars and muslim oromos will die for him in the god for saken terrain of Amhara highlands? Does he think the somali nomad has this "ethiopian nationalism"?

    War bax dheh,  The guy is full of crap and propaganda. As a true saaxir he thinks  he can outfox ppl with cheap rhetoric.  Lets see in 1 month what happens.


    DDIS ABABA, Nov 24 (Reuters) - Every afternoon, Getachew Megersa searches the Ethiopian capital for undercover agents. The 55-year-old construction worker says it's not the first time he's defended his country against rebellious Tigrayan forces.

    "I am now safeguarding my city with a stick, but if it is required and they give me a weapon, I will do the same," the former soldier told Reuters.

    He is among tens of thousands of Addis Ababa residents who joined defence groups after Tigrayan fighters threatened last month to march on the capital.

    Getachew and his team - dozens of men in bright orange vests, brandishing hefty sticks - search pedestrians and cars for weapons and suspects from noon until 10 p.m.

    As a young man, Getachew spent 12 years in the military under the Marxist Derg regime, which was eventually toppled in 1991 by rebels from the Tigray People's Liberation Front (TPLF) and its allies. The TPLF dominated government for nearly three decades, until Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed came to power in 2018.

    Relations quickly soured between Abiy's government and the TPLF. War erupted a year ago in the northern region of Tigray, and thousands of civilians have been killed, millions displaced and at least 400,000 people in Tigray forced into famine.

    Now Tigrayan forces have recaptured most of Tigray and pushed south and east into the neighbouring Amhara and Afar regions, threatening the capital and a transport corridor linking landlocked Ethiopia to the region's main port Djibouti.

    "There is no way that they (TPLF) will be able to rule Ethiopia again," Getachew told Reuters. Too many people in Addis Ababa oppose them, he said.

    Many on Getachew's team remember the 2005 elections. The TPLF-dominated government re-ran that vote and cracked down on protesters. Tens of thousands were arrested.  Old amhara derg members with bamboo sticks patrolling Addis will not protect addis.

    The group began patrols a week ago. Once, they received a tip about three strangers who spent their days inside and moved around at night. Neighbours heard the men speaking in Tigrinya, the language of Tigray. He informed police, who detained them overnight and searched their house, Getachew said.

    Nothing was found and they were released, he said. Police instructed him to keep them under surveillance.

    "It is obvious that there are infiltrators...who have lived with us for years," Getachew told Reuters.

    On Nov. 2, the Abiy government declared a six-month state of emergency in the Horn of Africa country, allowing suspects to be detained without trial for as long as the proclamation lasts and house-to-house searches to be conducted without a warrant.

    Some Tigrayan citizens say they are being unfairly targeted because of their ethnicity.

    The state-appointed Ethiopian Human Rights Commission has said thousands of people, mostly Tigrayans, have been arrested in the latest of several waves of detentions. Ethiopian police say they are taking suspected TPLF operatives into custody.

    TPLF spokesperson Getachew Reda was unavailable for comment on the self-defence groups.

    Commander Solomon Fantahun, director of community policing at Addis Ababa city police commission, said police have trained 147,000 male and female volunteers in combating crimes, community policing, discipline, and physical fitness.

    He said 2,000 volunteers have received additional training in conducting searches and assisting the police. He says they have helped capture weapons and direct police to suspects.

    “These volunteers are the ears and eyes of the police," said Solomon.

    Unlike the Amhara, Affar and Oromo ethnic states, the Somali state government is "Somali State" by name only. When Oromo, Affar and Amhara recruit young men and even women, they go major cities, hold rallies with music and speakers to encourage the youth to defend their homes. From there thousands are recruited and then transfer them to the  training camps. You will be shocked to see the numbers marching.

    Now, how the Somali special force are recruited?. It is hard to tell. For two months, they couldn't even get 3000 men mostly from their own clan districts. They don't come to Awbare--- the largest district in Somali Galbeed by population where 385,000 people voted for the last election--Gaashaamo or Dambal. And God forbid if the clan forces are TPLF sympathizers you are doomed. Furthermore, clan forces usually choose where they are willing to fight. Also, the clan militia had shown that they are good at abusing civilians,  but can't preform against well armed militia from Oromia or Affar. oF course they could burn villages, but not face to face war. It is proven.





    It is a clan entity with zero institutions. Mustafe Cagjar proclaimed to recruit 

    Galbeedi, can you really blame them? for a decade they had a electrcian turned gangster, a man whose education was climp to electric posts as TPLF spy and then hand him Soomali-galbeed. He dealt the region what his narrow mind taught him. For 10 years Amnesty was banned from Ethiopia and Soomali-galbeed had a media blackout just like tigray. The legacy of Cabdi Iley the stooge created havoc and undermined somali ethnic nationalism.  Cant imagine the burden of masuuliyad the cagjar.  One positive sign is how he changed the flag and  embraced somalinimo during the conflict with the oromos. But his political play like dog whistling for the amhara and break him.

    Cagjjr loses if Abey wins and he loses if the TPLF returns to power. Thats unlikely. But my honest analysis is that of Che in the forum. The somalis need to understand that who ever prevails they will be opressed.  The only viable solution is preparing how leave when Bosnia is heating up. (We allready have  a bosnia now with its ethnic massacres). 

  20. Galbeedi, your new found love for Cabeey Amxaaro just for the sake of fear of the  TPLF is infounded. TPLF is to weak,   


    As a Somali, and a firm beliver in a in non racist pan-somalism I do believe that correcting the horrible injustice that Meneliq and his neftegna Amxaaro commited against the low landers is reflection on  whats happening on the ground.

    Dont read me wrong. I am not happy for the death and wars in neighboring states but the the french scholar and orientalist of ethiopian studies said in a recent interview "ethiopia is an empire that threw out the skeleton of the caste system that held it together".  Everyone who are in line with Ethiopias history knows which ethnic group he and caste group he he is referring to.

    Asxaaavey, bal fikiraa, Odaygii boqorki bakhtiyay and who was buried in the table of Mengistu, Xayle said in a BBC-interview "we are a christian  nation, he then made claims to all of somalia, eritrea".  That was 50 years ago.  Things might be diffirent  but Galbeedi the peacefull dissolution of Ethiopia and it returning to pre-meneliq borders might be the best for peace and stabity for Somalis. Let them dissolve. Freedom for Oromiya and Cafarta.

    Professor Merere Gudina, the oromo who has strong ties to the gaalada and whose ntelecctual non-violent activism turned the oromo cause into a secular one.  50 years ago Merera Gudina had to to take an amhara name and indeed he did so and was named dawit tekele untill 1991 when he changed his name back to the un-official one.

    My point is, if the whole nomenklatura dead, just as it died in the soviets  let then it die.  We Somalis also regressed and failed to become ethno-nation state fashioned on Europe.  We  regressed back to a tribal lands that the colonialists found us 1888. P-land for m*ijerxxxteniya  Somali land for "hargeysa berbera burci" triangle", Southern Somalia with its mixed groups. Somalis have forgotten how the church Roma cathedral was built by forced labour that italians captured and chained.  They have forgotten how Xaafun used to the one of the most profitable salt producers in the world and how the italians forced with chains the in the ankle the building that port.

    If we as one ethnic group with our multi-culturalism , regressed think about Ethiopia.!  Americans can do the talk but belive me  once a nation is armed to the teeth no one can stop its state collapse.  

    2 days dago all of the ministers in Somalia had a briefing and they were discussing the events unfoldning in Somalia and the national Somali intelligence had a report (99,9 coming from the CIA).  The ministers were all in shock. 

    The TPLF despite engaging in a war with cafarta armed to the teeth by flodding the whole nation with 10 tons of ak-47 and 20 tons of bullets. The report spoke about the collapse of the front and how armed militias and now basically running the regions.  In Oromiya it is the OLF-soldiers who are now the police . AFL- and the former Read sea front, are now the police and the region army.

    The report also mentioned how the TPLF strategy had destablised Somalia. Bullets for ak47 costed 1 dollar per bullet, for one dollar one can now purchase 100 bullets. The hidden arms dealers of of Suuqaha Bakaara are now going to Assawarta and the cost of a Kalashnikov have droped by 50%.

    The report strongly recommended the somali army to  stop the arms flooding from Ethiopia to Somalia. A certain popular  minister  with taste for classic somali ironic jokes cracked a joke and said "these americans have these details and know we cant even pass afgooye yet they want to close borders, are thet sane"?.


    In summary, the best option for Ethiopia for us Somalis is that they sit and negotiate, the ones who wants to get out from the meneliq of Ethiopia should be allowed to follow article 39 and achieve freedom just as Eritrea did. Jigjiga should prepare fpr this. Hope fully they will join Somalia and become  a part of the politics of Mogadishu instead of Addis.


    Galbeeda, dantaada meesha ka fiiirso.
