I came across this funny article this somalian guy wrote he was so atonished how somaliland been featured on national geographic post 2010 maps; he almost had a heart attacked when he got his subscription and saw somaliland on the world map :lol:
On March 14, 2012, I received my March copy of National Geographic magazine accompanied by a new map. The magazine’s maps are my favorite, and I immediately checked the new one titled, “The World,” with an eye on Somalia. It, interestingly, had Somaliland as a separate country. I thought that this must have been a publishing error on the part of the National Geographic Society. I am aware of very good coverage about Somaliland by the magazine not long ago and that article, in all fairness, was objective and laudable. Who can quibble about the fact that Somaliland is the most peaceful region in Somalia? But the issue of rewriting the map of Somalia is disturbing. Somaliland, with all its success and accomplishments, has yet to be recognized as an independent state. 
I contacted National Geographic about the map but I have yet to receive a response. 

National Geographic is not a country but a magazine published by a non-profit organization. Its new map, though, will unnerve many Somalis who would consider it as one more slap in their face. It is, oddly, part of the daily-intake of humiliation that Somalia has been experiencing since 1991.  This is a geographic mishap, perhaps, that Somalia’s TFG president Sheikh Sharif, the former geography teacher, can tackle as he embarks on new talks with Somaliland.

Why the hell is Puntland there? As far as I know it is just a state in Somalia.

The whole map is a joke :lol:

It's the 2012 edition of the national geographic world map. Somaliland was shaded grey while somalia including puntland was shaded in that yellowish brown they gave it a shitty color oh well :lol:

I like Nat Geo.

The Nat Geo was inspired by the Royal Geographic Society of London.

I discovered both societies will tracking the foot steps of known and legendary explorers/thinkers such as Henry M. Stanley, David Livingstone, John Hunt (the great-nephew of Sir Richard Burton) and so many others.

National Geographic map is welcomed in SL and will sell it out fast.

Puntland is there in Somalia in the same version "Ogaden" is there in Ethiopia. But SL is clearly marked as a state of its own. The font seems to be small like Djibouti because it's not big country like Sudan, whose title is huge.

I welcome the Nato Geo's latest finding. Lest we remember Gardiner Greene Hubbard.

Maybe in the year 2200, when we are the only ones left on earth after everyone else has colonised space we can get recognition from the aliens. :up:

LooL Ictiraaf is coming. Hayaay! NatGeo has recognized us.

We just have to get the other 10 million publications to do the same.

I would rather wait recognition till year 2200 than reuniting with Koonfur. Recognition or without recognition Somaliland is doing well on it's own way.

Puntland and Somalia are the same colour. In other words they are still one.

Djibouti and Somaliland are also both grey. In other words djibouti will one day annex Somaliland :pac:
