Are we talking about a nation-state, sovereignty, national boundaries, national interests, national identity and geographical location, or grazing areas and water-holes for nomadic and wandering clans? I don’t get it. Do you?
How could we build or pursue anything together without answering this fundamental question?
There is a fierce fighting raging on in Somalia for decades without knowing what is it all about? How do you reach at solutions to your problems without knowing what is it that is bothering you? How could you seek help to alleviate your problems if you don’t feel where your shoes pinch. If you pay attention a little bit to the Somali situation, you get a bit suspicious of whether these “bunches of clans and sub-clans” are normal human beings or not – that they could be readied to ever move forward as a society in the 21st century. Some readers may get nuts at the author of this note for being that blunt and remotely politically incorrect. This author, however, believes that to call the spade a spade instead of being hybocritically dishonest is all that Somalis need in the way of their salvation.
Not even two persons of their supposedly urban and educated invidivuals could agree on a simple chat on issues of common interests. Nobody could fathom what they are fighting for, or disagreeing against. How could you help a wandering generality of people?
