    Where I'm from it's Somalian :hand:

    I even wear hats perched atop my afro.

    Not too bad, walking life's roads and finding little by the roadside. Yourself?
    Drowning in the misery of TSR and Gap years :nopity:

    The Somali people have unanimously decided that Somalian was not an acceptable term :fyi:

    Some solider who killed and injured his fellow soldiers. Me too, they're dicks. They even kill sheiks and innocent men/women under the guise of Islam.
    The value of human blood is nothing to them. Anyone who rushes to spill blood of any sort should really question his motives.



    Which qabil are you?

    You are both from the Ishaaq clan, almost a sure thing considering you're both from "Somaliland".

    That's what power does to you. One has to wonder whether they truly believe what they're doing is right. And which one are you?

    Afmadow. Basically, just Somalia close to Kenyan borders. Still was a scary journey though. Had to sleep outside with some lions in the background and **** but luckly being a westerner I had the privilege of sleeping in the car (5 seats with 20-30 mans in the back). Although, this was in '07 now Al-shabab control the area so it's even worse.

    I think Al Shabab worry everyone
    I despise them to be honest. They are the only thing preventing Somalia from being a peaceful stable country. The tribal wars are pretty much over, it's now Al Shabab who are the threat.

    They're uttery dangerous and evil. Last year they killed people for watching the World Cup for heaven sakes. Who on earth would want to live under a regime like that?

    This pretty much.

    I think a lot of foreign meddling is definitely a huge cause as well. Regional powers don't want a stable Somalia. Foreign powers don't want to see another problem in the Middle-East.

    Our history as a pretty aggressive military regime with offensive patriotic targets doesn't really help our cause either.

    At the end of the day, the status quo benefits a lot of international parties while our stabilisation would benefit no one other than us.

    Hmm, I agree. It's surprising that we only really prospered under a brutal dictator. I'd choose Barre over TFG, there far too weak and ineffective. Somali needs a leader with a backbone.
