Somalia will never get its political act together. As much as we would like to see peace and progress come the wretched people of Somalia, its political leaders have not changed one iota. These political leaders are all about money. How much? And who is paying it? Billions of dollars have already stolen, billions more on offer. Who can resist?
In the meantime the poor citizens of Somalia still live in abject destitution stuck between a weak and corrupt political leadership and religious fanaticism.
No, my fellow Somalilanders, Somaliland will continue to march on its own chosen path, the fantasist and dreamers in Mogadishu can still talk about the defunct Somali Republic whilst haggling and fighting over the latest donated dollar. Somaliland was a sovereign and independent republic in 1960, after a disastrous union, it is once again a free and sovereign nation.
Somaliland's sovereignty is sacrosanct.
What is taking place in Mogadishu is like the aftermath of the dissolution of a marriage, the groom is gone, the bride has returned to her family home, and the old folk are still pretending that the marriage is still working. It is over. The best thing to do at this juncture is to wish each other well, remain friends, and go separate ways.
