    am realizing he was actually a great leader.
    moved over 120,000 nomads to fertile areas and fishing
    stopped sand dunes from destroying good lands
    stopped extreme islam from reaching somalia
    went into ethiopia and captured the whole somali region
    promoted culture
    made somalia self-sufficiant in areas allowing for export
    connect the country through roads
    he had his faults too but..

    The earlier years of his reign were great unlike the latter years...

    Siad Barre was a monster. It's like saying, "H!t1er was evil but at least he unified Germany and tried to expand", or "he made Germany one of the world's superpowers"...:susp:

    Dictators like them deserve to go to hell!:westbrookwtf:

    He was like our Saddam Hussein, committed horrible atrocities on those that opposed him but overall great leader who cared about the progress of his country and kept the destructive elements at bay

    Even hitter was great. Just look at what he did for post ww1 Germany. He brought it out of the ashes and made it great enough to nearly win the next great war. Outstanding tactics and technology. They had a space program, nuclear program, ballistic missile program, fighter jet programs. Amazing stuff.


    Don't listen to these idiots saxib, they will never acknowledge the good with the bad. Don't get me wrong, I am not trying to portray Barre as being hitler like. I am pointing out how they will never acknowledge the good. Even when they benefited from it a lot.

    Barre was a great man, without a doubt. He loved his people, his only drawback was his love for power.

    Some would even argue that the bad.stuff that happened in the late 80s wasn't his fault. Rather they came from his inner circle. They believe he wasn't the same after his car accident.

    He did some good and some bad like most leaders. A lot of us are so (negatively) fixated on Siyaad Barre (AUN) and his presidency that we forget to look towards the future. Lets learn from the past- every aspect of it whether good or bad but still move forward. Fighting each other based on the past has gotten us nowhere. Nor has hating on whole qabiils based on the actions of a few...

    Nobody fucked shit up, he was killing and terrorizing his own people in an attempt to keep absolute power. He's the reason Somali people are so corrupt and have no morals they'll steal from their own people.

    So before the accident he wasn't killing people! He was an old demented man who was a murderer. Naga tag. From the time he took power to the time he ran away, he was behind all of the clan nepotism and grievances to this day. He exploited his own people and Somalia was almost entirely reliant on aid.

    I forgot to mention. These people try to attribute the whole civil to Barre because they are trying to cover for the short comings of their clan. There is no other reason why somebody would be so intellectually dishonest.

    It's sad he had to ruin it. I would have been an Ambassador to some country in Asia or something if he didn't fuck up and attack innocents. The nigga never done jack shit for Gedo or Laascaanood and we lost it all. :kodaksmiley:

    Can you imagine if the USC didn't go through internal rifts, they defeated Mareexan and Leelkaise in Gaalkacyo and conquered PL? We would have went through genocide.

    Alhamdulilah for the civil war, it was a blessing in disguise.
