Happy 18 May from Djibouti to my Somaliland brothers & sisters
Djibouti is not a Somali country. It is a multi-ethnic Afar-Somali country used as a pawn to pacify the strategically important Bab-el-Mandeb strait.It’s like the Somalis who refuse to accept Somalilands independence are stuck in some archaic past.
Move on! The Somali Union is dead and this is coming from someone who’s parents are BOTH from the middle and southern regions. Let these people live in autonomy and peace, and stop with this obsession of keeping all Somalis under one flag. We already have Djibouti. And the Gulf Arabs have multiple countries (Kuwait, UAE, Qatar) who are all very similar and get along with each other generally. Why can’t the Somali regions have the same principles?
Somaliland should be independent. The UN needs to do the right thing and recognize that
It doesn’t matter. 30 years of anarchy in the South can easily change a IC Diplomat’s mind. They might just pull the plug on the whole operation and allow the secession of Somaliland and Puntland, in order to isolate the chaos in the southDjibouti is not a Somali country. It is a multi-ethnic Afar-Somali country used as a pawn to pacify the strategically important Bab-el-Mandeb strait.
The African Union and Arab League are against Somaliland. So long as this is the case it will never be recognized. You guys don't understand international diplomacy. You can't just self-declare a country.
Well if the dark days of 1991-2011 didnt change their mind. I dont think theres virtually anything that will.It doesn’t matter. 30 years of anarchy in the South can easily change a IC Diplomat’s mind. They might just pull the plug on the whole operation and allow the secession of Somaliland and Puntland, in order to isolate the chaos in the south
MA brother welcome to the wadani bandwagon. Its a miracle that this place didnt turn you into a qabiiliste after being here for a year.Wallahi the majority of people in Awdal support unity with our southern brothers. The people who come out in Awdal for May 18 just do it to have a good time to party or are from other clans. Awdal is home to other clans who moved there and wallahi my cousin who lives there told me the government during May 18 brought people from Gabiley to Borame on four buses to the celebrations. Talk to the average person in Borame on the ground and they support unity. Have you ever seen more than 5 Gadabursi who want separation? The answer is no. But I am happy about the peace in Somaliland. I want that peace everywhere. I support a united Somaliland but only as a federal state.
