Khalid Ali Puntland is what i call a stealth secessionist. Also i have always seen them not as military threat (unless its on the back of a mercenary tank) but more of being politically savvy.
It seems even that has now gone out of the window with this being left in the lurch Central state which now will politically/financially (obviously not physically -maybe int he future-) threaten their own state cos of being recognized by the devious IGAD EU Kay UN etc.
Something tells me the reason why Kay and the rest of his gang agreed with this has maybe to do with them trying to appease reer xamar due to that SW state agreement.
Now we all know (even those who wish for it) Mudug would of never been split cos it would of opened a pandora box so now imagine what would of happened if it gave Galmudug to Puntland. The only thing that comes to mind is Amisom experiencing what happened to the xabashi in 2007 a full blown mobilization from the average Hawiye .
Hilaac21 we shall see until then im keeping an eye on Prozacs 15 august deadline for those politicians from Puntland who are stationed in Xamar. FarhanYare
