[quote="Somaliweyn"]First of all, two important corrections:
1: The Father of the Somali nation can not be put in the same post along with traitors and warlords like: M.dheere, Muse suudi, Togane etc.
He is in the league of great Somali men like: Abdirashid Ali Shermarke, Cabdullahi Ciise, Gen.Daud etc etc.
2: Mogadishu is a Somali city located in a Mudulood region, with Mudulood been the majority throughout its history. Because of this location, demography and history and in the light of state collapse, it becomes important for Mudulood to assume the political leadership of the city and take the full responsibility that comes with it. This means, since the city is occupied by Ethiopian troops, Mudulood should be on the first line of the struggle against the Ethiopians.
I fail to grasp how people who support the tige federal group, and the ethiopian occupation can at the same time call Mogadishu a Mudulood city. Here lies a contradiction!
Apart from those two important corrections, there is a difference between:
-Sitting on a goldmine without been aware of it…
-Using a goldmine for one’s own benefit.
These two situations are fundamentally different.
One only needs to look at the lands Mudulood subclans inhabit, and their current status of living to see that unfortunately in our case, it’s the first scenario: sitting on a goldmine without been aware of it.
How have we ended up in this awful situation? Just look at the so called ‘leaders’ and their mentality.
For example, M.Dheere controls Jowhar and northern side of Middle Shabelle…while Muse Suudi controls Balcad and southern side of the Middle Shabelle.
What have they done? Nothing except setting up their warlord administration to exhort money from the poor farmers, businessmen and travellers in order to sustain their warlord administration. There is no tangible development going on in those regions. The people in those regions still have to do with the old water canals the Italians built, and the devastated State-owned buildings and structures left over.
This especially becomes mind boggling when one looks at the economic strategic locations of Balcad and Jowhar. Two farming towns, surrounded by the most fertile lands in Somalia, neighbouring the Benadir coast, with a large market in Mogadishu consisting of almost 2 million potential consumers, plenty of export outlets like Mogadishu port, Warsheekh, Ceel Macaan etc.
Yet, all activities making use of this economic strategic location are crippled by the warlord administration i.e. the checkpoints, never ending conflicts, ‘taxes’(extortion money), and their policy of not allowing any progressive, educated group to develop the regions just because they do not want the people to become aware of the goldmine right under their feet, which means trouble for the warlord administration.
The only way to take advantage of this goldmine is to overthrow the warlord administration which keeps the people ignorant.
This means, following the Ceeldheer model.
The only way forward is for every Mudulood city, town and even village to adopt the Ceeldheer model!
More will be explained about this model and the future of Mudulood.[/quote]
My dear friend your rants are out place! The purpose of this thread is not to debate about the political philosophies of certain men but to appreciate the beauty that is Muduloodom. Regardless of your perverted political ideologies, I think that if you open your mind and focus more on the beauty of those lands you would come t o appreciate the beauty those cities/towns have. Your incessant political rants about this warlord and that warlord are becoming a nuisance to be brutally frank.
I have lived in Ceel Dhere and the only reason that that city have flourished is because of some of the Wacesley wealth that makes into the city; and a great amount of the investment proceeds were purely coincidental- that is no one had a grand vision to transform the city, it just fell into place because the timing and the opportunity were right! If you ask me Jowhar is worth way more than Ceel Dhere or Haradhere.
