The shit the kacaan regime done in Somaliland can't be excused but it was just an accident of history and circumstance.

Somaliland was the only civilized place in Somalia other than Xamar and hence the biggest threat to the regime.

It wasn't a hate crime ... just politics gone wrong.

If there was another organized militia that controlled a whole region back then we would've seen landmines there too.
 
If you are looking for sympathy, some of the land mines in the main cities were laid in the inter-SNM clan wars. Everything can't be blamed on the former government.


Exhibit A

"Small numbers of mines were laid defensively by the Isse Muse/Habar Awal Militia before the attack on Berbera. After capturing Berbera, the Habr Yunis and Idegale militias mined approaches to the town to deter a counter-offensive by the Isse Muse militia; this was the first documented use of mines in Somaliland since the fall of the Siad Bare government"

What's even crazy is how that Ethiopian border was mined to deter people fleeing & coming back.

There's stories where people used to hide valuables in a hole and cover it up. Then when they left the SNA soldiers used to take it then put mines & bombs as a nasty surprise

I want to believe but a lot of these stories from that time are most likely exaggerated hearsay or just straight out bs.

It's like horror stories that qabilist elders tell the younger generation to induce hate in them for the evil faqsh.

When this shit is all over we'll all need weekly therapy sessions if we want to heal as a people lol.

Those land-mines are not from siyad barre, you dumb ass. It's done by militia groups. Notice how they lay it around 'settled' areas of 'waqoyi galbeed' because they fear an 'assault' from 'reer miyi' clans. The land mines are situated around heavily settled 'places' because they know they lack nomadic man power to keep invading nomads away. Notice the one in galgala, that was recently put there by 'shabab' not siyad. This map isn't by siyad barre it's bullshit, it speaks about today civil war.

Hargeisa hopes the land mines will disable the invading nomadic clans, but nomadic clans will purchase a mine detector vehicle to ensure the route is mine free and once they detect it, they will have an expert who manages removing it. So it's a stupid old war tactic solution by hargeisa. U can't stop the invading reer miyi forces to protect your hargeisa settlements since u know u lack reer miyi clans on camels.

Reer hargeisa fear nomadic clans just capturing land without anyone stopping them, like caare did unabaited in sanaag without a single response from muse bihi, what can muse bihi do, bring 'jilec boys' from city? they will be laffed at by the heavily crazy miyi boys who will kill 10 city boys for 1 reer miyi. Their brutal reer miyigu, u can't compare them to city settler soldiers looooooooool. HY held all Isaaq combined together in 96. Reer miyi brutes are nowhere in the same league of war as city boys being recruited from hargeisa. They will run from the battle the city boys if they hear one bullet

so siad barre put mines in las qoray or warsans
That's why you see PL envoy dodging land mines around galgala, the SNM militia and shabab use this tactic by placing land mines along the road. The northern area mines was laid by SNM to safeguard hargeisa from 'nomadic' clans since they lack a frontier of nomadic clans to protect the cities. That's why in PL you have smaller towns with larger nomadic population. It's the concept of the vikings. Small cities and larger viking camps outside the city.

The land mines are shocking high in SL because they are 'settled' clans and fear nomadic clans invading them. Caare showed and proved how he can capture land in Sanaag without any problem, the reason is the population is settled in SL, they can't go out there and stop it.

They regularly go off in and around Galdogob. Just today there was a report of a mine found by some children which was thankfully diffused safely.
