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 place.is 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.
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.
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.
