Indeed I am. Somalia has a lot of potential. It has the longest coastline in the planet, and can serve as one of the worlds largest commercial nations. This was the case during ancient times, when Somalia, like Greece was a region of coastal city states. I am patriotic, and I wish to one day contribute to the revival of the nation. Look at Japan. It had the same exact problem. Clans fighting against one another, and a large war. It took decades for it to be stabilized, but when it was stabilized, it continued to develop. It is now the 2nd largest economy in the planet, and the way America is going, it will probably be number 1. The problems in Somalia are political, tribal, regional and economical. The politics involves people fighting for secularism or religious rule. The tribal conflict is due to an unstable clan based system. The regional problems involve territory historically belonging to the Somali people, like Ogaden and the NFD region of Kenya. These regions were only given to Ethiopia and Kenya, respectively, because of colonialism. The economic problems come from legal reform measures the UN, USA, African Union and Arab League make to further downplay on the natural abundance of resources Somalia has to offer itself. These resources include, one of the largest deposits of untapped uranium, natural gas and oil that's barely exploited, untapped large deposits of underground fresh water, iron ore, tin, gypsum, bauxite, copper, salt, phosphate, guano, arguably the largest amount of Meerschaum, and finally, a very large diverse agricultural landscape, with farming and plantations occurring on the south, and livestock pastoralism occurring to the north. The war is simply a temporary set back. I have absolutely no doubt in my mind that Somalia and hopefully Greater Somalia will turn things around for the better.
You should hurry back now so you can be in on the ground floor of your country's revival. Goodbye!

Somali needs White folks to run the government. Black Muslims cannot function a stable government, they never have and never will.

Just look at the mess African Obama has caused in just a few years.

Look at Haiti.

Look at Harlem.

Ah, the white man trying to provoke us. We have no inferiority complex. We actually like it when people hate on us. It makes us feel powerful. It may have worked for you on other black people, but good luck having any Somalis care about your thoughts. As for going back home, I'm waiting for the appropriate time. In the meantime, since I'm in university, I might as well take advantage of the education system here to assist my plans for back home. Things take time, patience and delicate planning to work out. In due time, I shall go and contribute, as will others.

I actually like the negative ratings as well. It shows that I'm striking a nerve. Ah, you white people are so fun to mess with.
