Why are these people writing the articles about somali news don't know anything about the land. Laakiin I'm not talking about qabil, I'm talking about gobol iyo countries. The gaalo act educated lakiin they always make this mistake on tv and on the internet!

Don't post, Laughing Lobotomy, unless you know what you're talking about. Kirk had a ten year track record in the House of Representatives. Even you could make sense of it....

"South side" vote??? There you go again, Klu Klux!

You obviously have no clue where Kirk's support is from. But why let reality get in the way of your racial cheap shots?

HAHA SOMALIA is the last place you look for a maid and gardener, the last white man in Mogadishu was hanged. We are proud people who don't bow down to white people, we are better than white people and they can never conquer our land.
