Wax la inkiri karo ma'ahan in somaliya calan qudha ku matasho umadaha isu tagay.

Waana xaq sharciya inay ilaashato jiritaanka dalkeeda, iyo dadkeedaba 

Aduunku wuu ogyahay in somaliya noqotay dawlad fashilantay oo soo kabanaysa

Sodon sano "tummin" timira laguma badalan karo, wixii khalad ah oo ka yimaadana waxaa ka masuula imaaraadka oo qaanuunkii gees maray

Itoobiya way doonaysaa umad ay qaadiro ku dishay oo iska baylahan.

Shacabka soomaaliyeed ee waqooyiga dega, saari maayaan khaladkii yimaada Snm, tan koowaad iyo ilaa tobnaad waxa eedda iska leh federaalka dhexe.

Waa xad gudub iyo xaqirraad lagula kacay umadda soomaaliyeed  dhamaantood, golohooda shacabka iyo dawladoodaba, xataa haddii faa'iido ku jirto daaqad khaldan bay kasoo galeen.

Eniwey, Imaaraadka iyo their controlled media - the puppet Alcarabiya, which was created to counter Aljasiira, but failed - cannot stop Soomaaliya hor u socodkeeda iyo hormarkeeda. They cannot also steal and cheaply hand out Soomaali assets, including dekedda Berbera, built by government of Soomaaliya with the help of Soofiyeed. The few Xabashi-workshiping hardcore insecure secessionists' wishes can all day and nightdream to please Xabashada, but not real Soomaalis.

Faysal Cali Waraabe ayaa laga hayaa "In gudhuu iyo Bantu ka hadasho danaha dadkeena, waa khaladkii 1960kii dhacay ee la saxaayo."

I concur with the Gaadh-haya Qaranka Mudane Faysal Cali. When laga roone maanta Bay iyo Bakool Xabashi ku naageeyey, inu Berbera ka hadlo. Waa khaladaadkii 1960kii dhacay. Waana la saxaya. Taa ku abshir.

This is what you are greeted with as soon as you step out of the Airline in Baidoba.

"Dawladda aan Iskeed isu Maamuli karin" 

Barwaaqo,

That actually is an "apt" name of that pseudo-government in Villa Somalia. But then again if sheer "political embarrassment" could kill someone, then the folks and the "political elites" of that Villa in Mogadishu will be dead on the ground long time ago.

After all, there in "Villa Somalia" is the actual seat of an alleged national government. And it's being guarded by a mere hired African mercenaries. And why is that? Because they don't trust their own kind and kith to actually guard their own leaders.

And yet on top of that we also have some "Gudhuu Boy" from Baydhabo, who keep on telling us that some alleged national fellow-feeling is at foot in that place.

And for good measure, he seems to believe that chaps who live in that building are "Somali nationalist" of the first rank. Even if the fact of the matter is that these guys in Villa Somalia will in turn drop everything they ever alleged to have had hold it "dear" and close to their heart on moment notice, if on the other hand that is what is being asked of therm by Ethiopians government acting through its ambassador in Mogadishu (who actually has office in Villa Somalia).

So that is sheer hypocrisy we are daily invited to see it without blushing for them. And still they want us to take them seriously. What a tendentious piffle they indulge in this parish, not to saying nothing about the sheer codswallop delusion of it all, indeed.

Has the UAE colonised Yemen's Socotra island paradise?

Has the UAE colonised Yemen's Socotra island paradise?

Date of publication: 17 May, 2017

 
In-depth: A near-forgotten island in the Indian Ocean, Socotra was outshadowed by the conflict raging in Yemen, allowing the UAE to turn it into a military outpost and tourist hotspot.
Socotra, an island 300km off the coast of Yemen in the Gulf of Aden, was known until recently for its dragon's blood trees, white beaches and unique flora and fauna which earned it the title of UNESCO world heritage site in 2008.

Today, it is at the centre of a power struggle between Yemen's internationally recognised government and its ally, the UAE.

In the latest episode of the standoff, the UAE confirmed on Monday 15 May it uses Socotra as a base for military training.

The UAE forms part of the coalition of nine Arab states involved in a bombing campaign in Yemen since March 2015, backing Yemen's President Abdrabbuh Mansur Hadi.

The coalition supports Hadi's Aden-based government in its fight against the Houthi-Saleh alliance controlling the capital Sanaa and large swathes of territory in the north.

But the UAE has been on a shopping spree in the region, securing a military base in the port of Berbera in neighbouring Somaliland - an autonomous region of Somalia - in a controversial vote during which opponents were escorted from the legislature's chamber. 

It also occupied the Yemeni islet of Perim, previously under control of Houthi rebels, in the Bab al-Mandab strait.

The UAE has also been extending its influence in south Yemen, reportedly backing the leaders of a recent secession attempt.

The UAE is now understood to be looking at the strategically placed Socotra archipelago with interest, causing friction with Hadi and within the coalition.

Unconfirmed reports claim that Hadi leased Socotra and nearby Abd al-Kuri island to the UAE for 99 years before fleeing the country for Riyadh in 2014. The power vacuum created by the conflict offered the UAE an occasion to extend its influence over the archipelago.

When Cyclone Megh hit Socotra in November 2015, the Emirates Red Crescent - the UAE branch of the international Red Cross - reportedly injected more than $1.6bn in aid for Yemen, reconstructing Socotra's airport and renovating 18 schools according to UAE media.

But critics say the UAE used humanitarian aid to appropriate the island. 

Reports say UAE officials have been paying local authorities in exchange for a lenient approach to their development plans. 

Since the year 2000, nearly 70 percent of the Socotra archipelago has been protected by a UN plan as a natural reserve, prohibiting construction on much of the island.  

But reports of UAE-sponsored developments, including in the residential city of Zaed - a port, hotels, roads and petrol stations - have been circulating on social media, angering Yemeni authorities. 

On Sunday 7 May, the Yemeni authority for the conservation of historic places called on UNESCO to protect the archipelago of Socotra from "dredging" by "occupying" UAE forces.

 


"Very large [swathes of] land have been occupied by the Emiratis. This is a violation of the laws of the state, the protectorates and the protection of the coast," said an official from Socotra's Environment Agency.

He wished to remain anonymous, as many Socotrans are still receiving desperately needed aid from the UAE - and he is afraid that negative publicity could hurt its beneficiaries.

He feels frustrated at the lack of power to counter and contain the damage: "The local authority cannot do anything against the power of the rich Emiratis, and as a result they are doing as they please. The United Nations has no possibility of suspending the Emiratis because they have no representatives in Socotra."

Locals accuse the UAE of using fishing fleets which deplete the fish stocks and push native fishermen out of work. The fish is then allegedly exported on military ships and aircraft to UAE restaurants and supermarkets.

Conservationists also decried the UAE's intense development activity, often breaching the natural reserve boundaries, and erecting walls and fences around wild beaches.

According to biologists, Socotra's unique environment is already suffering the effects of climate change and overgrazing. Human development on a large scale could tip one of the world's last pristine ecosystems beyond the point of no return.

The island's natural heritage is waning rapidly, and the local population, caught in the middle of a political power game, is feeling its consequences.

For decades, anthropologists have been studying how the island's unique culture - including an unwritten Semitic language spoken by a native ethnic group, the Mehri (numbering just 70,000 people in 1990) - has inevitably been affected by the arrival of tourism in the 1990s. 

But so far Socotra was too far and poorly connected to attract mass tourism.

[BSince April 2017, the Abu Dhabi-based Rotana Jet airline has operated weekly commercial flights directly linking the UAE to Socotra, bypassing Aden's authority, hoping to turn Socotra into a tourism hotspot.

 

Local tourism operators have protested against "the monopolisation of tourism by the UAE", which is reportedly controlling the influx of tourists by tying plane tickets to the purchase of a package holiday including hotel, car hire and guided tour - all provided by UAE business operators.

Since the UAE controls the air and naval traffic on the island, local operators are pushed out of the market. 

Local youths have reportedly been granted ID cards to emigrate and work in the UAE as hotel maids, shop assistants and companies security guards, draining the local economy of labour.

Socotra is undergoing multiple and intertwined political, ecological and economic crises. 

Aden's diminishing hold on southern Yemen has encouraged the UAE's expansionism, and a lack of oversight on this remote island risks depleting Socotra of its natural and cultural heritage.[/b]

Suldaanka,

And yet our "Gudhuu Boy" from Baidabo, has the nerve to talk about Somalinimo to us in Somaliland. And for good measure he is been preening on the other post about how some folks are "Xabashi lovers". Even if the fact of the matter is that his freaking city of Baidabo is nothing more dignified place than a wretched occupied (literally occupied) shit-hole in which the same Xabashis nonchalantly deposit their human's waste onto it in most morning.

Sometimes I genuinely wonder whether these folks are so blind they can't see this. For it seems people who are this blind (perhaps, conveniently so) are the same folks who will scream their heads-off about a business deal of the kind Berberra investment agreement is. In other words, here we have a clear indication of the "warped priority" of some folks in action.

Which means if the cities like Ceerigaabo, Burco, Berberra, Hargeisa, Borama (and all those in between these major cities) actually welcome you with that picture or something similar to it, particularly the minute you land in their airports, I would never, ever, have dared to show my silly face in any place a political discussion of any kind was taking place on it.

And instead I would have spend my days to see to it that such a "degrading picture" is not something my cities and towns would long have to put up with it, if there is any thing I can do about it.

But then that is me, I suppose, who in turn essentially "view" things on a genuine "patriotic scale" (or lenses) of first asking how does this effect Somaliland. But it seems others have nothing to show for it for themselves other than to speak ill of others. And that is rather sad (to quote a certain Mr Trump, once in my lifetime).

Barwaaqo,

Walee waa run oo ceeb looma dhinto. Waayo kuwa halkan maalin walba kaga sheekeeya Somalinimo ayaa ceeb u dhiman lahaa. Mar haddii halkii xaruntooda dowladnimadda aheyd ee Villa Somalia lagu ilaaliyo "calooshood-u-shaqeystayaal" loo soo kireeyey dowladooda, mar haddey iyagu ay is aamin la-yihiin.

Kuwaas sidaa uga "qaawan" wax damiir ah oo dad-nimo ah, ayaa doonaya in ay kaaga sheekeeyaan "Somalinimo" waxa ay tahay. Wakaa "aqliga-foorara" ee ku jira nimankan halkan ka haw-haw leh, habeen iyo maalin, ee waliba usoo taagan cayda Somaliland.

You know why the Ethiopians went there?

Who invited them, hint: is a general vilified to high in Somaliland

He invited asked that his people are being butchered and the request came through WSLF

When interviewed in Mogadishu during ICU, but after ICU has been banished and late A. Yusuf entered, that General said "We might have been enemies at one time, but we knew they are more long term thinking people and would not ignore our request for help. No matter how much we fought each other, they also know we are close"

That is kind of decision making one needs, even call your "enemy" when the risk is too great and you have no capacity to protect the people.

Aideed folks were simply taken off the list of "human" for burning grain on the farm.

A WSLF fighter who was a company commander simply broke down cried and told his commander that "he himself might committ crime on Aideed folks so will serve an interpreter rather than command" He was sent back to Ethiopia with instructions that he would not be assigned no where in southern part of Ethiopia. That fighter/commander is now a colonel and lives in Western Tigray near Gonder.

That war has affected civilians and military how cruel how inhuman we people can be, regardless of all prognostications...

I am not exaggerating if I say this man is most likely going to jail, or at the very least will be questioned by the Somaliland police. He is spewing some serious unionist stuff there. :)

Yemen is suffering same conditions that Somalia did and they are going about it the same way downhill.

The Southerners shoul never have given refuge to Hadi, for simply being a southerner.

I think at the end of the day the Houthi will have a major role of what is left of Yemen. They will threaten UAE with missiles and will get a better deal from UAE than the south.

The Bedewin are running wars of the tribes with 21st century weapons. Taking islands ports resources and soon will propose some kind of structure and get it approved as rule for Yemen.

The people of Yemen, Somalia, Syria and Afghanistan are paying for having brave and heroic ancestors that fought colonizers, but those same ancestors left also problems.

Empires never forget. The first time British went to Afghanistan after 911 all commonwealth media was talking how from a British expedition only one soldier on horse back made it out of Afghanistan.

      Dear Mogadishu,
      I am saddened to learn another horror visited upon you the other day in the heart of your once beautiful downtown. I have a fond recollection of the area — Cinema Centrale, Croce Del Sud, Ufficio Governo, and the classic fashion shops. I understand it was going through renovations and witnessing a renewed sense of hope and revitalized spirits.
      I am sorry about what the merchants of death and destruction have brought to you. In their twisted, evil logic, they benefit from the atrocity and the violence they foist on you; their survival lies in keeping you in a perpetual cycle of death and destruction. I know your residents are a tough, resilient lot; they braved through so many calamities, but I do not think, for a minute, it is the West that is behind your misfortune. You are just a blip in the West's radar. The culprit is in the midst of the poor, honest, hardworking folks of yours. It is another Somali — a coward, a depraved soul, bereft of morals, hiding behind a variety of masks. He has poisoned your culture and ethics, destroyed your honor and dignity, brainwashed your children, and soiled your reputation. But let me tell you, he is on a borrowed time. Your people are becoming aware and exposed to the outside world, and your youth, ever more educated, restless, believing and demanding a better future.
      Dear Mogadishu, keep the faith and hope alive, your people will triumph soon and take good care of you!
       
      A.Nur Bidar-
