https://observermoment.wordpress.com/20 ... aphic-map/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.
A funnier joke is that daroods think it's funny that literally everyone wants to split away from Somalia.Why the hell is Puntland there? As far as I know it is just a state in Somalia.
The whole map is a joke
Verylong live Somaliland
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.One small step at a time.
that was too harshMaybe 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.One small step at a time.
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.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.One small step at a time.
Djibouti is purple.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
