“Joke of the century” Somalia that did not have army, but militias loyal to clans and the country tops the list of security worst-hit in the world advocates sending deploying troops to South Sudan

Somalia is like a boat its anchor failed to prevent the boat from moving which mean lost control which may result, the boat to sink in deep high seas.  The fragile government in Mogadishu protected by over 22, 000 African forces and regional   states battle for power struggle. The country gripped three decades in one of the world’s longest-running conflicts. The federal states had cut all ties with weak central government in a likely setback to efforts to pacify the Horn of Africa Country as it emerges from three decades of conflict. The country become battle ground whereby foreign powers are competition to have political influence. The country plunged into a vicious cycle of violence over centuries. The only political issue those unities the Somali leader is their enmity against Somaliland people. Their extreme dislike against Somaliland people is the single issues unities the Somali leaders, but not in other single issue, but hatred hurts the hater more than the hated and bounces back.  Hatred is like bottomless cup people is like burning down your own house to get rid of a rat, Henry Emerson Fosdick. The peace, stability and security in Somaliland cause jealousy to Somali leaders, but jealousy is like fighting an invisible  enemy.  Jealousy always affects immature minds, it is a kind of madness, it painful emotional experience. It is feelings of insecurity, fear from invisible, it is waste of time, it is fear of comparison.

 Farmajo and his prime ministers attempts to isolate Somaliland is identical someone trying building castle in the air.  Somaliland strategic importance was known for centuries being the junction of the Horn of Africa and the Middle East. Somaliland is a bridge that connects several continents of the world. Strategically, the geographic location of Somaliland has both uncontested commercial and defence strategies. The country has a close proximity to the Gulf region -the major source of world energy. Somaliland has the advantage of becoming an important international sea and air traffic hub.  Somaliland will give the region and beyond an extra ordinary commercial and geopolitical leverage in horn of Africa.   The struggle for independence and the withdrawing the failed union with Somalia in 1991 generated its rewards in Somaliland as nothing comes without cost. We live in a world that everything has got a price-ticket attached to it and nothing comes free of charge which means we cannot get something for nothing as this commonly against the Law in many situations.  The nations that got freedom had paid price for independence which means thousands of people died as martyrs and others were tortured before freedom was gained, in other words freedom is not free of cost. Nothing comes with no price and to get better life pass through struggle for independence.

Somaliland people paid the price to get independence. Understand to achieve anything requires faith and belief in yourself, vision, hard work, determination, and dedication. . When aspiration fuels your desire to succeed, you are virtually unstoppable. Freedom is nothing but a chance to be better. Albert Camus. Better to die fighting for freedom then be a prisoner all the days of your life. Life without liberty is like a body without spirit. Those who struggled for our independence believed liberty to be the secret of happiness.  Freedom lies in being bold. Robert Frost. Freedom is never voluntarily given by the oppressor; it must be demanded by the oppressed. Freedom has its life in the hearts, the actions, the spirit of men, and so it must be daily earned and refreshed.   Somaliland struggle for independence has been achieved after so many sacrifices and bloodshed.

People have the right to be free from fear. They have the right to find peace in the understanding and acceptance of who they are, but only to the extent that their rights do not intrude on the rights and beliefs of others. Each person’s rights end where the dignity of others begins. Human dignity involves respect and compromise among the different people of any society. Somaliland people are enjoying the fruits of SNM liberation struggle.  Somali leaders in Mogadishu who are under the protection of 20, 000 African peace keeping forces engaged to export the chaos in Somali to Somaliland but this false imagination will end up zero impact in the ground. Somalia has been locked in conflict for decades and solution for the long crisis in Somalia appears in distant dream.  The international community attempted almost three decades  to find solution for the deteriorating security situation in Somalia, but , situation remain no change as Somalia become battle ground open for completion among foreign powers and as a result solution for the crisis in Somalia did not exist even slight percent.

 The intention of Somali leaders in Mogadishu aimed to hurt and harm the willpower of Somaliland people, but they are unacquainted, anything that starts with bad intentions end result zero impact or works ant-clockwise.  The so called Somali government in Mogadishu who cannot come out from residences without the protection of heavily armed African peace keeping forces should cut their coats according to their limited power which has no impact on world political circles. They should think before they dream in midday.  The political map of Africa has not been made United Nations or by African Union, but by the European Colonizers that divided Africa for their own political sphere of influence at the end of the 19th century and as a result, Somaliland map was drawn by European Colonizers like the rest of Africa and consequently, Somaliland borders became part of international law in view of above

 The world in large is different than in the days of united Somalia as one country as the dream of Somali-weyne at present out of shelves which mean did not exist anymore.  Taken above into account, Somaliland is not different than Eretria, east Timor or the former Soviet Union that split close to ten countries.  The bottom line is, Somalia that great part of its territory still occupied by Al-Shabab and weekly experiencing suicide bombing by terrorists cells deploying troops to South Sudan as peace keeping forces is not more than laughable jokes
