Secession doesn't have to do anything with qabiil. It's more of where your parents come from. My parents are from somaliland and I support it 100%.
I'm actually for letting it secede but that sets a bad precident and there's nothing to stop others from doing the same. On the other hand, we've tried everything so far so might as well break it up and see what they come up with.

It's been 27 years since the start of the civil war and there's still unrest in southern Somalia. SL and puntland should break away. Somalia is just holding them back
 
if reer somaliland built cities like this without having a country, image what they could achieve with iternational recognition
Hargeisa used to be known as the 'Dresden of Africa' after it was flattened by govt & mercenary pilots. The city was entirely rebuilt by the people of Hargeisa with support from the diaspora.

On a side-by-side, Somaliland used to receive little to no aid at all and instead relied on taxation for funding:
Whereas countries that are dependent on aid can afford to neglect tax collection, countries without it are forced to use taxation appropriately. In 1990-2000, the Somaliland ministry of finance reported that “95 per cent of the resource that finance the activities are locally mobilised, mostly through taxation”.

Not only are taxes collected in a non-coercive manner, but the government enhances its legitimacy by allowing a degree of public participation in the policy-making process. For example, in early 2000s the government attempted to increase taxes on the private sector and proposed a VAT rate of 30 per cent, but the business sector lobbied against it and the policy was reversed.

In his paper, Nicholas Eubank, a researcher at Stanford University, claims that some of Somaliland's success is down to a dearth of aid. Donors cannot give aid directly to the government since it is not recognised as such. It has been dependant on raising local tax revenue, which the paper says citizens have used as leverage to make the government more inclusive, representative and accountable.

@lone it's good that you've seen the light, but don't make threads willy-nilly for arguments sake.

If it ain't May 18, it ain't May 18
