  1. I am very proud of to see Somaliland to be one of the African countries , in the world and Arab countries. Somalilnand is peace place and democratic country.But I dont believe there is A government in Somalia , because trabilism,luck of justice,pirates, terrorist, luck of freedom exist and will always exist , b/c Hawiye clan predominately captured everything they dont wanna see Somalia government functioning in the short term or in the future.the president of Somalia played our dignity and he is responsible every brutal action occurring in (Lower Shabelle) Somali government troops predominately is Hawiye clan they committed Human right violation killing kids, women, elders, rape against the innocent people in Marka and all lower shabele region.please dear brothers in Somaliland be strong never allow to be one country. Do not make an other mistake like 1960. Right now Somali people and its government hate well development somlailnd they see like their envy ,but i know you love to see Somali people in a peace and progress.God bless Somaliland God bless Europe.
