Obviously, Riyaale was part of the old government. But, I am just wondering, was he in any way, shape, or form responsible for any and all the wrongs that happened to Somalis? I guess so, eh? Afterall, every somali politician has a stained shirt; it's just that some shirts show the stain more than others.
Oh yeah, by the way, if Riyaale was part of the generals and colonels bulldozing the city of Hargesia back in the day, would he still have become the president? I don't think so.
Sometimes people make it out to seem that Riyaale being elected in Somaliland is similiar to Hitler being elected in Israel. That's just insane. Riyaale, as far as I know, is not guilty of massacaring civilians. He's just guilty by association- association to Barre's government.
