    If Somalia is not kept unified ,Oromia, Greater Afar Republic, Tanganyka,Zanzibar,Kasaman (Senegal) The Mombasa Republic, ,NFD (KENYA) This does not bode well for world and regional peace.

      Good point Mr Ahmed, but you forgot that these states you mentioned where never countries before, wears somaliland was a separated from Italian Somaliland for about 80 years, was briefly recognised by 35 states. Moreover the union between the British Somaliland and Italian Somaliland was illegal because the Harggeisa draft of constitution was ignored and Mugdisho adopted its own version without consulting with hargeisa about their union prior inception. As a lawyer i would beg you to look into that and please feel free to write back. So things were soar from the get go to the fall of the state.

    Well said Jack, It is unfortunate that the Southern Somalis resort to such weak and shameful arguments for the sake of fake Somaliwayne “dream” AKA rule as much land and people as possible.
