  1. I recognize that experiencing psychological setbacks can lead to a diminished ability to perceive reality accurately. However, the level of wishful thinking being expressed here is unprecedented. Since joining this forum in 2007, I've lost count of the number of times I've observed overt excitement about the potential downfall of Somaliland. Initially, as a new member, my views aligned with unionism, but the interactions and revelations over the years have exposed me to the true nature of such ideologies, for which I am grateful. Despite Somaliland's eventual recognition, it seems some will continue to indulge in fantasies about its failure. Those who are entrenched in this mindset appear to lead profoundly unhappy lives, and I struggle to imagine a more fitting repercussion for such defeatism than the current state they find themselves in. It has become a unique form of entertainment to visit this forum and read through the posts, witnessing this persistent state of melancholy.
  2. Taiwan trains counter-terrorism troops for Middle Eastern country Taiwan's 42-year-old MPSSC has already trained one group of recruits while another on hold due to pandemic, local media claims 3454 By Sophia Yang, Taiwan News, Staff Writer 2020/05/09 13:55 MPSSC in 2017. (Wikimedia Commons photo) TAIPEI (Taiwan News) — A high-ranking military official has claimed that a Middle Eastern country has inked a training agreement with Taiwan, according to a Liberty Times Net (LTN) exclusive story. Under the deal, Taiwan's Military Police Special Services Company (MPSSC), under the Military Police Command, is responsible for coaching the Middle Eastern country's counter-terrorism force. They will travel to Taiwan in groups for training that will enhance their knowledge, skill, and responsiveness in the war against terror. Similar to the United States Army Special Forces (Green Berets), the MPSSC was established in 1978 and has earned international acclaim for counter-terrorism operations and protecting high-ranking officials and ambassadors in Taiwan. It is also known for anti-hijacking and anti-sabotage operations. Taiwan is one of the few Asian countries capable of training special task forces and providing such services to other countries, according to LTN. It reported the first batch of trainees has concluded training and returned to home, while a second batch of recruits is on hold due to the COVID-19 pandemic. https://www.taiwannews.com.tw/en/news/3930970?fbclid=IwAR0emABRyt6O1Tu0X9gkWMx7vMox2MgKtLVwCAOv3zIB_heUQwd_e2IfBps Rumours has it that it's Somaliland.
  3. I don't even why you all are asking why is Somaliland or Somalia coming to these talks now as if this is a choice when American comes calling. I'm more interested in the motives of these countries that have their hands in anything called Somali. Somaliland is an obstacle to the legally looting of Somalia, these so-called one man one vote won't be legitimate if one third of country don't participate. So what do you do? Well the fool in Villa Somalia will sign some sort of legal framework which will allow Somaliland not a downright recognition but a legal wiggle room which will make Somaliland a quasi state. When Somalia has its election whether its forced or voluntary these actors will legitimize it and the looting can begin. (purely speculative) But when IMF Managing Director Kristalina Georgieva congratulates Somali people on historic milestone doesn't send shills through your spine than you really don't understand the kind trouble Somalia really is in. So lets list these milestones this psychopath is talking about. Foreign trained SNA and add to it AMISOM, EDF, KDF secret american bases, private military contractors, al shabaab, warlords, parasitic status quote business enterprises, corrupt politician you named it Somalia has it. The saving grace of Somalia if you want called it that these past 30 years has been Somalia's non creditworthiness and these fools are about upend it. So who in their right mind would loan money to a country in this state? Well lets just say people who want to legally take Somalia's resources through debt instruments which is collateralized when the creditor has rights over an asset or revenue stream that would allow it, if the borrower defaults on its payment obligations, to rely on the asset or revenue stream to secure repayment of the debt. Brothers and sisters these actors haven't spent billions of dollars and 5 billion in debt relief on bunch Africans who can't get a long for nothing. I haven't posted in years on this forum but this morning I couldn't let it be so forgiven me for the incoherent post.
  4. I agree that a military base or an alliance whether it be a political one or military would hurt us in the long term, so that is out question right now. Siding with Russia at this moment would’ve be devastating for our economy, especially when our trade is run out UAE. If there ever was such a deal from the Russian then that should be used to pressure the gulf monarchs into a political legitimacy for Somaliland i.e. Recognition. In foreign policy this should priority, to decouple us for this economic strangle hold they’ve on us. Domestically we should strengthen our state institutions and rule of law so that personal, family or clan interest aren’t above the law. This vital if we ever to hope to have a future as a country and be in a position to help and reunite with our brethren in the south.

    blood

    Dear nomads, I’ve an urgent request for those whom reside in Europe and North America. It has come to my attention that many Somalis living in those areas mentioned above aren’t blood donors in theirs respectively countries. As consequence Somalis who needs a blood transfusion in some cases need blood from specific donors whom match their antigen are left with noting when they need it. As this was the case were I work i.e. “blood bank” there was a pregnant Somali women who was about to give birth and needed blood. It showed that she hade a rare blood type, which is common in Horn of Africa. To make long story short, they found a Somali guy who worked at the same hospital that matched her blood type. Both of them were missing the big S- and the little s- antigen so they were perfect match. It seem that a lot of Somalis are missing these antigen. So to those whom aren’t a blood donor go to your blood bank and donate. Who knows when you might need it, or someone close to you?
  14. Ethiopian troops patrol the street of Mogadishu, Somalia Nairobi, July 03, 2007 – A senior official of a Western non-governmental organization has accused Somalia's interim government leaders of deliberately harassing and intimidating humanitarian organizations that refuse to work under government control. As VOA correspondent Alisha Ryu reports from our East African bureau in Nairobi, the allegations are some of the most serious charges of corruption against Somalia's Western-backed leadership since it took power in Mogadishu six months ago. The director of operations for a non-governmental organization called SAACID-Australia, Tony Burns, tells VOA he is angry and dismayed by what he says is a blatant attempt by the leaders of Somalia's Transitional Federal Government to shut down his group's sister organization, SAACID-Somalia. "We are the largest NGO in central southern Somalia, and we have received a lot of contracts from the U.N. over the previous years," said Burns. "And individuals within the TFG want these contracts for themselves. The TFG does not exist as a government. This is a series of individuals, trying to make as much money as they can." Two weeks ago, Somali and Ethiopian troops raided the compound of SAACID-Somalia in Mogadishu, and conducted what the government called a security operation. Several SAACID staff members, including the group's country director, were arrested and charged with membership in the al-Qaida terror network. The soldiers smashed doors and windows, destroyed office equipment, and confiscated several guns the staff says are needed to provide security for the compound. The government freed the Somali staff members three days later, after Mogadishu civil society members, international NGOs, Western governments, and U.N. agencies called for their unconditional release. Burns says he believes the raid was carried out partly in retaliation for his group's refusal to give government leaders control of the funds SAACID-Somalia had received to carry out various civic projects. The NGO is involved, among other things, in health and sanitation work, specifically helping to clean up the capital. Burns says local NGOs like SAACID-Somalia that do not cooperate with the leaders are being labeled as terror groups and isolated from the international community. "The mayor of Mogadishu came into a U.N. meeting one day, when the U.N. was holding a meeting with civil society," continued Burns. "He told the U.N. that they were not to discuss or talk to or partner any Somali NGO because they were all al-Qaida terrorists, quote unquote. For us, it means we can no longer partner the U.N. because the U.N. money is all going to the government and they are not willing to partner local NGOs separate from the TFG. So, legitimate NGOs that have a track record are out of it. There is no funding." Education Minister Ismail Hurreh denies the interim government is trying to control the activities of aid agencies or to extort money from them. "The government recognizes the legitimate work of the non-governmental organizations in many, many fields," said Hurreh. "Provided that they are not doing anything unlawful, provided they are not putting security into question, definitely they are free to go about doing their business as they deem fit." Since the raid on June 18, Burns says Ethiopian troops, who protect the interim government, have set up a tent in front of the SAACID-Somalia compound and are continuing to harass anyone entering or leaving the compound.
