Egyptian delegation were in Hargeisa in Politics Posted July 15 I knew the separatist st boys were desperate to get noticed by others, but I didn't know they were suicidal. Let me make few quick points here: First, Egypt doesn't need Berbera or any Somali air space to attack the Ethiopian dam. THe distance between the Dam and Egyptian border is almost the same as flying in the Red sea. Second , the separatists do not dare to welcome Ethiopian enemies in Berbera or any where else. It will be suicidal both politically and economically. Ethiopia could finish off this project in half day in so many ways. Don't they know that there are many people waiting for a Kurdish style base in EThiopia to do what they did few years ago. Third, Egypt can not offer anything to Somaliland in terms of trade or business connection. If they want to recognize other nations in the region, let them start with South Yemen. The Egyptian despot has no choice but to negotiate with Ethiopia. They had an opportunity to stop the dam ten years ago when it was started and while the international banks refused to lend money to the project for fear of Egyptian attack. Furthermore, any attack in Ethiopia will make Abiy a martyr and he might even use a cover to consolidate power and defend mama Ethiopia. Mengistu Hailemarium was desperate and cornered in 1977, until the Somali Galbeed war started. He used the war to galvanize the people, hold on to power and eliminate his enemies. An attack to the dam will be God sent gift to Abiy. If the despot Sisi want to play games like the fat gulf boys of Dubai and court who ever is detractor of Somalia, he should send an airplane and pick up Faysal Waraabe and company and entertain them for few days. He could even send a ticket to C/raxman C/shakuur and Ina Sharmaarke to boot even more. He can find another Raila Odinga looking few cash and some attension. THese Arab fools keep playing the same discredited old games. History has shown the gulf despots only respect power and those who steps his foot in their neck. Do not show them any mercy. THey pedal the blood of other Arabs to be irrelevant. Now you get our attention since we are all debating a non existent Egyptian delegation. Certainly the Landers love drama . They think being in the news and getting some attention is probably what the doctor in HArgeisa has prescribed. Now, you got our attention and it is time to go home and take care of the real job of feeding the poor and creating something real.
