niyoow we are tired. we keep electing incompetent leaders all over somali lands. they don't accomplish anything. the somali people is still poor. there is corruption everywhere. the poor people are getting poorer. the fat cats are getting bigger pockets.

Not possible at this time when the big powers are in chaotic situation. Nobody is going to leave the Somali to manage his house. Best that can be done at this time is at least region by region to have functioning government.

As for corruption is relative. Nigerians ministers take in billions, western corporations buy their politicians, countries buy American senators to their favour....its everywhere.

The situation with the big powers is good for the middle powers, but not so good for the no powers.

Old_Observer,

There is real wisdom there, man. Historically, middle-powers, always had a room to maneuver. whilst those at the bottom who have no power were always on the mercy of those who they have chosen. Or perhaps they were at the mercy of those who chose them.

For example, the likes of Pakistan (a perennial middle power, if ever there was one) can play off the likes of China against the likes of the USA, to benefit itself, if that is the leadership of that country are smart enough to pull it off, and not greedy enough to destroy their tomorrows for the sake of today's fleeting appetite of power and money.

And on the other hand, the likes of Djibouti, can't really play this kind of a game. And it's sheer foolishness to even try it. For either they will get burn long before they get any fruit from such a competition of these great powers. Or the party they have chosen (i.e., power they have chosen or chose them) will essentially start owning them. Hence, it's all about leadership, leadership, and more quality leadership at the national level, even if you are poor country.
