Wow look how powerful Somalia once used to be. Imagine where would we have been if the Ethiopian Somali war and the Civil War never happened. I enjoyed the journalist comments over the show.

 
It looks ok, but Mogadishu even then looked very under development.

Plus outside Mogadishu the rest of the country was very much underdeveloped, because the whole country's resources were put into one city by Afweyene's dictatorship.

Those were the golden days for Mogadishu, but the darkest days for every other region. Especially Somaliland.

Good riddance to bad rubbish
 
The Italians had built much of the infrastructure in and around Mogadishu

The city looked better and more organised in 1960

The is the beauty that Afweyne's dictatorship destroyed

The 77 war wasn't worth it, in retrospect. Now none of us have any air support, navy, or good military.
 
He should've just armed the ONLF and let them do the work.
WSLF would have never won the war.

The war strategy was perfect, the rapid advance of our forces is a testament to that.

It was just not meant to be.

No one could have predicted the disproportionate intervention by the Soviet Union.

But the past is the past.

Soomaali Galbeed is due to have a referendum for independence, Unification may actually happen without any violence.
 
EdSomali:

They lost 77 war because of logistics not bad strategies.

Somalia was defeated and crushed by Cubans, Ethiopians, russians and yemenis. Somali army was no match for Soviet Union and its allies.

Of course Somali army was no match to soviet army. The soviet was a super power competing with US for world dominance. It was a bug mistake to go to the war. Which I believe is one of the reasons of the downfall of Somalia.
 
Somali army was no match for Cubans and Ethiopian troops as well. We should not forget Cubans, Ethiopians,South Yemenis and Russians destroyed Greater Somalia dream and stopped Somalia expansionism in Horn of Africa.

A great victory for Communism world and disaster for Somalia and its people.
