Re: Somalia

I read your article, first and the foremost examples you take is different from the situation of our own country, as we know Iraq's adminstration was handed over from Suni group to ****e group and still civil war is ongoing there.
Afghanstan has no stable condition till now, we hope only mutual respect is the only solution for this wold.

The process in Iraq is still very much on going... but it is more peaceful and safer than before. People rights to freedom is wide spread now. More and more Iraq people are starting to experience it. I think you feel like the UN forces are going to invade you country and take control.. I see it more as a intervention. They will step in and take control. Stop the warring and get a representative of all the different warring factions to the table to talk about the grievances. This in itself is a monumental task. Then get them to form a government made from up from representatives from all the groups, each one having the same vote as the rest. Then we can slowly back out. The way I see it... John

Re: Somalia

Somalia - not having a recognized government has left the Somali waters open to fishing. The UN has been in Somalia for some time and remember the US even tried to difuse the situations ongoing some years ago. My ultimate idea is to have a unilateral invasion of Somali and make it a multi national controlled country. Someone will say sounds like Iraq, but if the ppl can't do it on there owen then you need to have the more civilited countries step in before the country totaly destabilizes and terrorism steps in -- oh wait that has already happened.

Re: Somalia

Thank you for your coments, I am happy to share with you with you feeling, but when we are talking from the reality not good words like we want government made up from the people, a government representing all the groups.

The US and western are telling the media they want peace and democracy but they are killing daily civilians by cruise misiles and F_16 aircrafts is that democracy, did you hear the media what happening Afghanstan almost civilians are targetted why?.
We know what happened Abu_Guraib prison like abuse beyond the humanity they made by the american soldiers.

Almost we hear International community are sending troops to waring areas, but I surprise why they dont want send troops to middle East in order mediate Israel and Phalestine.

I think Somalia's sate was destroyed by foreign intervention, and still inverventions is going what results made by that intervention unless endless fighting!!.

Then hear you friend.


Re: Somalia

Good discussion and everyone sound to know about prevailinig troubles of Somalia and the Somali people.
I would like to brief you of why Somalia has fallen into such situation in the first it true Somalis are by nature difficult and cannot govern themselves.Surely it isn't.
The self proclaimed state of Somaliland is infact better governed than most of the recognised states in Africa and many more elsewhere. so why the so called democratic,peace loving nations of the world sidelined Democratic peaceful Somaliland and punish them over 20 years by not allowing them in international platform. It is all because powerful states known for pursuing own self-interest on whatever cost don't want a sovereign state of Somalis coming to being. surely otherwise the abundant natural resources wealth of Somalis will be produced and if that happens they lose.
Better inhabitants of the horn be moved (to Europe and N.America etc) first, and let others die of hunger war and starvation, perhaps than only production can commence.

Re: Somalia

Dear all,

Having read your story my friend named Rashed Meigag, as we all aware, internationally there is no border between Somali community, and there is no difference in adminstration between Puntland, Galmudug, Hiiraan State, Juballand and what so ever fragmanted pieces split following the overthrow of the former military regine in 1991.

Internationally speaking, I don't beleiving the solution to problem is that to endore those adminstrations, regardless of our own believes Somali community should understand that one single flad, one nation, repressenting by all groups and all regions having equal vote like others is the solution.

What is a worthknowing, role of the international community must remain endorsing and supporting the will and the wish of our community in order realize sustainable solution to the existing problem.
