http://content.time.com/time/magazine/a ... 18,00.htmlHaving reached an understanding with Premier MacDonald of Britain on the subject of a cession by Britain to Italy of Jubaland, Premier Benito sent experts to London to settle the precise terms of the agreement.
Jubaland is part of British East Africa and, according to the terms of the Treaty of London (1915), under which Italy agreed to enter the War on the side of the Allies, Britain and France agreed to compensate Italy should they extend their territorial interests on the African continent.
At the Paris Peace Conference, Lord Milner offered to cede part...
There was no such thing as we were a separate country, you were a British Protectrate just like Jubbaland who the British gave to the Italians for joining the allies in the war and they would have given the Northern British somaliland to the Italians if it wasn't for its strategic coast on the gulf of Aden ( to counter French monopoly in the red sea via French Afar and Ciise Somaliland) and anytime you guys would have been part of the newly created country of Somalia which was created after the Italians and the British were told by the United Nations to merge both of the territories together so they could form the country we call today Somalia.
You say we had a government but, sorry every territory had some type of a governance like ministries and courts to serve the territory's citizens.
Again come back with a legit arguement cuz there was no such thing as Somalia and Somaliland being separate countries, Somalia was formed after the British and Italians were told to merge the territories.
