Ethiopia and Somalia are one Nation - According to Ethiopian's Officers.

According this Ethiopians officers running the show in Gedo on behalf of FGS, Somalia and Ethiopia are one country, or at least they are "one nation".

Hence, that is the merit of the argument of Mr Abby Ahmed. And how he sees what Mr Farmaajo had signed off for him. At least in return of helping him win out his political wars in SWS, Gal-Mudug, and now in Jubbaland. 

One wonders where are all the fake nationalist of SOL?

Or at least lets hope we see them around here defending how Ethiopia sees her "reward" (and the form it will take) when it comes to her getting her "bound of flesh" from the unstinting support in which she gave to Villa Somalia in general and to Mr Farmaajo in particular.

Oodweyne,

 

The Horn of Africa is as always still singing the old song of its masters. Globalism, the world as small village, integration of East Africa with Ethiopia as leader (chosen child of the "masters").

How dare you think small. Think big. Ethiopia brings rocket science, food self sufficiency, great health, prosperity to the table and Somalia brings ports. How dare you think locally?

The Ethiopians are the American Empire for Farmaajo. They have the key and even Afwerki is not been able to take that old key away.

 

If you think what the Abiy, Afwerki, Farmaajo servants did in Baidabah was bad, the Gedo adventure will completely undo even the small medicum that was left.

Old_Observer,

I get all of that. Seriously I do. It just that I am enjoying the sight of seeing all of those "pseudo-Somali Nationalist" who used to hide behind the wretched blue flag particularly when the issue of the day was that notion of bashing Somaliland, are now all of a sudden lost for mere words. As if some mauling cat got their collective tongues off from them (as it were). And that is how you know that Somalis of the south (or Somalia) there really is no higher "political principle" of any sort in which they will ever believe in it. Not a freaking word of it.

In fact some in here of SOL may come to think that I am needlessly "flattering" my own people in Somaliland, but the real truth of the matter is that outside of the likes of Al-Shabaab's controlled areas where bunch of the teeming Islamists's ideologues run the show, the nearest areas in the whole of the Somali peninsula in which you will find folks who socially and rationally really are genuine "predisposed" to believe a "higher political calling" (whatever that principle may turn out to be), or the principle of the issue itself without asking what is in it for them in return from such principle, are in my opinion, the very folks who are found in Somaliland only.

It was reason they believed in wholeheartedly and in spirit and in soul as well the very notion of "Somali-weyn's political ideology" all the way from early in 1950s till late 1970s, without asking what was in it for them as a "side-line benefit". And it's same reason they believe Somaliland, today, come hell or high water. And still going at it strong after almost 30 years on the trot (as it were). 

Moreover, as you know a nation, any given nation (by definitional sense of it) can't be govern at all without that nation having a "political principle" that will act as the nearest it has to a "guiding northern star" in which the average citizens must abide by it and must believe in. And that still should be case irrespective of what the self-serving political elites of that country in question may actually believe in (at least actually believe in behind closed doors). And, as you know, of course, in the world over the usual political elites of any nation are self-serving bunch to a fault. 

Hence, the tragedy of Somalia, which was something that we then Northerners quickly have found out in early 1960s when we have united with them, was that from the average citizen in the street to the highest official in his plush offices, the very idea of making song and a dance for a "political principle" comes easy to them. But to actually believe a word of it, and do so with the notion of honoring that principle as well as with the sense of attachment to it, was and still is a well-nigh impossible for them.

This is the reason you have a spectacle of those who were singing songs (of the tendentious sort) about how Mr Cheesman was a noble man, a patriotic man, a man who is genuine of the Somali nationalist sort, particularly of the kind who could be a kindred-spirit with the likes of Mr Cabdilahi Suldaan Timmacade (and find out who that man was, by the way) are now looking the other way when it comes to explaining as to how is it possible to see the likes of Mr Cheeseman using a foreign military muscle on his alleged Somali brothers.

Isn't it the case that his political act of this sort is the very galling "antithesis" in which the essence of the notion of "Somali Patriotism" was supposed to be about? Do you now see as to why we in Somaliland treat with contempt the argument of those who wish to claim some alleged Somali Patriotism at our expense, when on the other hand they are a bunch of "card-carrying paid shills" for the likes Mr Cheeseman of this world? 

It always a scam with them. Everything is with these folks from Somalia. A nation's honor is nothing but a scam with them. The notion of a deeply held sense of patriotism is scam with them. A sense of destiny for their nation (and then going after it) is scam with them, at least in their estimation of it. A sense of history (small or large) and the obligation in which one has to that history is scam with them. The present situation in which they may found themselves in as a country is to them nothing but scam to work and a hustle to which to retrieve from it some kind of a "side-benefit". And finally, the future of their country is nothing less than a "clannish scam" to which to haggle over it.

These are people we are dealing with in here. Particularly when you see them crying on each other's shoulders while waving about at each other's faces their blue flag. For they don't believe a freaking word of it. And that is the historical, social, and political tragedy of Somalia. It has always been the case, I am afraid. I know them so well, for I lived among them enough years in, Mogadishu, to have actually and rationally "observed" them in action. Like so much of amateur anthropologist, coolly going about in "judging" the peculiar and the bewildering "social habits" of some "half-butt-naked natives" in their own habitat.

All those that said Farmaajo is hero, nationalist...yada yada are those who have lost confidence. Every little sign makes them euphoric.

In Ethiopia there is the same group. The Amxara. They have had a 100 Mandellas, Kennedy, MLK, Roosevelt only six months or year later to make them down to zero and blame them for all failures. From Hero to Zero is a few face book posts distance.

People who shout praises of someboy untested are usually people without criterion. You need a checklist to at the very least give someone the benefit of doubt. You need red lines.

Afwerki would have welcomed nothing more than Somaliland to visit Asmara. Never done. The reason is simple. Even as you knife each other with Djibouti, you are not willing to humiliate or try to humiliate Ghelleh. He knows this very clearly. I am sure Ghelleh has thanked Bixi and Silaniyo..others for this.

Ghelleh may not be a democrat, if there is such a thing in HOA, but he is always a Somali. To the extent that he can, he will never humiliate another Somali with a non Somali.

Even after their problems about Aarta conference, Abdulahi Yusuf requested that Djibouti lead and command the forces that were to come from Djibouti, Ethiopia, Yemen and Sudan in 2006. Ghelleh prepared a Brigade including some militia from Kililka for the purpose. The deal fell apart in Mugadishu with warlords and clans reneging.

What was the criterion that made Farmaajo a nationalist? None just face book postings.

He was never anything of the sort other than a "cheap political opportunist" who saw how really and desperately the downtrodden masses of Somalia were looking for a "nationalist savior". Or at least they were eagerly looking for a real "Somali patriot" of the sort that if he is cut will only indeed bleed a blue blood and not an once of red blood at all. And who in turn will rescue them from close to three (3) of decades of sheer statelessness.

And like a "two-dollar-hustler" working at the street's corners of New-York's crime-infested ghettos for his daily scam (which was how things used to be in the old days in some of the boroughs of New-York's city before the place was spruced up and then gentrified by successive mayors), he decided to purchase himself a "Somali nationalist suit" (with a blue and white ties to go with it) on his one-way-ticket from Buffalo of Up-State New-York into Somalia and into then Villa Somalia's presidential campaign of 2016.

And now that he had won that "ultimate top gig" because of that nationalistic posturing in which he did, he, of course, at the moment lie exposed after the fact for what he was all along.

Well, given that he is now using the same ugly method of the old warlord era of Somalia, which was the notion of using the Ethiopian's hired troops in order to subdue a political rival, which is what he is doing now in Gedo region (his own freaking region), actually means that whatever claim he could plausibly make now about him being a true Somali Nationalist lies in tatters and it's in the shreds from this point onward.

Hence, all the cheaply paid shills, all the N&N trolls in the twitter sphere, all the Face-books endless postings, all the gin-up and the breathless Social media political advertisement, all of the YouTube's soft furnishing and indeed glowing interview videos of him, all of that "razzmatazz and cheap campaigning stuff" in which his looted money can buy for him now, will be of no use to him.

Or at least they wont be any use to him from this point onward in-terms of selling himself to the same downtrodden Somali masses, who in turn had fallen for his then self-serving cheap "trick" back in 2016, which in turn had alleged of him to be of a "Somali Nationalist hero" of the first rank and of the highest estimation. And in particularly of the sort he portrayed himself to be back then. And now that sort of "naked emperor" will be the case with him, specifically, as he eventually heads towards what will be highly contested re-selection process for his day's job, come next year (2021).
