  1. Good development. I hope the rest of the African nations who seem to be dragging their feet on the Somaliland issue follow suit soon

  2. These are the countries that our government needs to build relationships with and always over lip service to countries that hate our existance like djabouti. We need a government that can forcifully push a campaign to promote Somaliland to countries in central, west and southern africa. they are more understanding to our situation then those in our region for they have to many conflicting intrests when it comes to us achieving our ultmiate goal of independance.

  3. I agree Aydarus. We need an army of diplomats in every African capital selling Somaliland to those who know little about it if any at all. This however should be kept secret so our enemies(read Somalia, DJeabouti, Egypt) do not sneak up behind us like they are doing now with their ministers runing around the world on an anti-Somaliland campaign instead of fixing the hell-hole that is Somalia.

  4. Somaliland needs to buy it's independence and I feel this issue has not been explored before. There are number of African status which thier total income is similar to that of Somaliland
    I am sure $1 million would easily secure a full Independence.
    On the other hand John Drysdale is an expert in terms of Somali And the horn in particular. He wrote number of articles which explains exacty the Somali reunion and described it that it was illegal
