    First off, I will get rid of the guy who persistently insisted that western Somalia should be apart of Ethiopia make sure western Somalia is with Somalia, then threaten the British to let NFD stay with Somalia. After that, make sure the second president doesn’t get assassinated and make sure he lives out his full term.

    I would travel way back to find the first person to claim an Arab daddy and smack the shit out of them. Qabiil prevented and Somali problems solved :denzelnigga:

    Hmm. I heard that the final straw that broke the camel's back was Siad Barre defending and protecting a Catholic Bishop? So maybe if that wouldn't have happened then the war would have been delayed, but I don't know if it would've been prevented. Hard question, tbh; it requires the input of somebody with an extensive knowledge about the war and its causes and I'm afraid I'm not that person.

    If we really want to dig at the heart of the problem, maybe we can acknowledge that if somebody stopped Siad Barre from usurping his position and leading a lengthy miltary dictatorship, then perhaps there wouldn't have been the attacks on the minority clans that led to their uprising.

    I would’ve staged a coup and would’ve deported @embarassing family to Papau New Guinea

    I would’ve primarily made the country atheist.

    I’ll stop that once you quit fabricating the non-existing “Somali government”. Quit making something out of nothing.

    I assure you, I don't. If it was nothing you would'nt be so emotional about it.

    And lool you should def consider taking your own advice. How ironic.

    I would give them:

    -Horses for military purposes

    -The right crops so they can settle down and farm the land, they would have a dense population and wouldn’t be able to be demographically replaced.

    Expand our military might as fast as possible and colonise up to Congo before the westerners start their scramble for Africa and Belgium gets their before us.

    Reinforce our strategic position in the Indian Ocean and make it the premier country for all trade in the region. Keep up with the industrial revolution and use our oil reserves as funds to invest into the IT sector when the internet kicks off and then slowly ween off using fossil fuels in favor off wind and solar both of which are plenty.

    Biggest obstacle to all this will be qabiil and like a tumour will always be their unless managed to become benign or cut off entirely. Transitioning pastoral nomads to urban life will be another issue that needs to be dealt with.

    Biggest issue will be how to prevent infighting. In this hypothetical scenario you'll have to fake being a genie/angel or whatever and create a religion. Perhaps one like Judaism based on descent and disallow proselytism. :dead:

    I would’ve slaughtered all the camels in Somalia, few will perish, but the majority of Somalis would’ve transitioned into a more productive professions like farming and others and that could’ve saved us from poverty and the few grazing and water resources that leads us to wars. We could’ve been like the white South African farmers.

    Camels are the only reason why north-central Somalia is even inhabitable. I don't know why people have this impression that nomads resist agriculture and farming, that's not the case. If the land is fertile and the region receives high rainfall, then nomads always transition to farming across the world. But if the land doesn't receive adequate rainfall, then being a nomad is the most productive use of the land.
