I have come to the realization that the Republic is in danger, notonly by its neighbours and internal usurpers, but most in dangered by themost beloved of its citizens. I know, I know, it’s hard to digest, but hear meout. Somaliland has been an independent republic for almost 21 years now,and had been fighting a successful rebellion for ten years before that, but weforget who we were fighting. Yes, we were fighting the military regime ofSiyade Barre, but we were also fighting the civilian invaders that regime hadplanned to implant in our country after our extemination. Now, to forgive thiscrime is quite merciful at best and also extremely cowardly, but to forget isanother story altogether.
What I am trying to say is that, those same military genocidalmonsters that we call faqash are still portrayed as heros and figures ofnostalgia by the people we call brothers and sisters in the south. These menand women who caused so much destruction and loss of life in our homesand country, are praised and loved in the south and southerners who presidewithin our communities in the Republic. I know, crazy right? Wrong, go andask, find out for yourself, if I’m lying,…. Well then I’m lying then, but that’sbeyond the point.
To ensure that the Republic succeeds is for Somaliland to havean enemy so which we can blame for all our problems, we need an enemywhich Somaliland can organically form animosity with, an enemy whichalready wishes for our destruction once more. The Republic must have thecapabilities to project power and influence into Somalia. The intellectual andacademic community must formulate and implement policy to further thisagenda. We cannot sit back and even think about freindship with a people wecare so much about but wish the worst on us. It is naive and stupid, twoattributes we cannot adopt in the current region we currently habit. TheRepublic’s success and future must be ruthlessly and brutally ensured, evenat the expense of the Somali Republic and her peoples.
Long Live The Republic, Long Live Somaliland….amen, amen
