Somaliland: A country that does not exist

Nov 12, 2012 | Posted by: roboblogger | Full story: In-depth Africa

From as far back as the 1960's, the people of Northern Somalia have always felt marginalised by the rest of Somalia, preferably South-Central Somalia.

The author of this needs to speak for himself and keep the South out of his mouth. Also I find his attempt at history revisionism quite pathetic. He needs to get his facts straight, it wasnīt the Southerners who innitiated the union, it was the North.

Iīm still waiting for that Somalilander pundit who can argue his cause without "the woe is me"-rhetoric and fabrication of history.

Somaliland is moving forward while our brothers and sistesr in the south live in hell!

Get it together guys! 20+ yrs of chaos is terrible.

We Somalilanders are building a future with peace and stability as much as we can. We can't go back!! Only forward!

You somalilanders have to stop behaving like this
I am a somali nationalist and i love my people.from djibouti to kismayo

Ethiopians and gaalada maraykanka want to divide the somali people....they want to exploit somaliland ports and if somaliland get recognization you will be just a ethiopian colony

Southern somalia is raising again from the civil war caos but we need some help......i do not want turkey's or arabic countries help WE NEED YOUR HELP

CAUSE SOMALIA WITHOUT SOMALILAND IS JUST LIKE A HUMAN BEING WITHOUT A LEG....A HUMAN BEING WITHOUT A LEG CAN NOT WALK AND A LEG WITHOUT A HUMAN BEING CAN NOT DO NOTHING

SO LETS FORGET THE PAST AND LETS START REBUILD OUR SOMALI NATION

SOMALILAND IS THE LAND OF SOMALI PEOPLE
STOP HATING EACH OTHER

SOMALI WAA MID!

EHIOPIAN ARE DIVIDED IN MORE THAN 70 ETNIC GROUPS WITH DIFFERENT RELIGIONS AND LANGUAGES BUT THEY ARE A UNITED COUNTRY

SOMALIA IS A HOMOGENEOUS COUNTRY AND EVERYBODY SPEAK THE SAME LANGUAGE (EVEN RAHANWEYN MAAY DIALECT SPEAKERS SPEAK ALSO SOMALI) BUT WE STILL HATE EACH OTHER....TELL ME WHY?

The difference between you and the Polish is that the Polish donīt lie about their identity. You come to the west claiming the clans of Southern minorities to obtain asylum. So please donīt compare your identity theiving fraudster tribesmen, with the Polish and the Indians, who are usually skilled workers, unlike asylum seekers of your kin.

israel AND usa says ready to recognize Somaliland
It is a matter of time. Somaliland started its journey from ground Zero and now in a position where it has everything but recognition. Give it a little more time and Somaliland will officially be part of the International community.
DOKON DOKON DOKON! Yeah Israel is eager to recognize you but its for it's own intrest which is military presence in the Red Sea! As for the Americans ofcourse they would support any kind of dissolution of an Islamic nation and further create distinctions between the Muslim ummah! & what journey from ground zero? I've been to hargeisa they still have the same road that Mohammed Barre built. Somalia who has been in turmoil for the past 20 years still has a better airport than you guys.
Furthermore what does it have to offer to the international community apart from a few cave paintings and some sand! Somaliland is a desert state and cannot sustain itself without aid due to its lack of rain & rivers. A united somalia is a strong somalia(for your case). P.S we have oil you guys don't!

LOOOOOOOOL, those who came after 1991 are 100% fraudsters, none of them were truthful with the immigration authorities about their real tribal identities. What tribes did they claim again? Like I said, I donīt buy your phony lip-service patriotism, when you have admitted that having a "comfortable" life in the London projects is far more important to you than being a "Somalilander". You said yourself, washing dishes or being on welfare in London is far more comfortable than living in SL.

"Millions of dollars"...hahahaha... donīt make me laugh. You have street children in Somaliland getting molested in the streets. If you were sincere you would help them first, because charity starts at home. Anything else?

Now, answer me this_

1.How come you you Somalilanders can never talk about how "progressive" and "devoloped" you are without mentioning the South? Is the South, the most notoriously anarchaic place on earth in recent times really setting the standards for you? Is that the only place you can compare yourself to?

2.Why is your "national" identity and "national" pride contingent upon the misery of the South?

3. Thereīs a saying that goes "Nothing lasts forever, not even your troubles". The Southīs trouble wonīt last forever, and we are more likely to a see a peaceful south in the future than an internatinally recognized Somaliland. When that happens, what will happen to your already fragile national identity and pride? When that which you based your identity and self-worth on (Southern chaos) is no longer, then what will you do?

This is a sad sad page...
No wonder the Muslims are weak: divide and conquer.
The solution for this mess is that All Muslims unite under one leader. History always repeats itself. For the Muslim Ummah to unite, first the Arabs must unite than the rest of the Muslim will in-sha-Allah follow.

Until then... Peace!!!
