Madagascar is now around the 64-68% average literacy rate. In that class it puts us to shame. No drama.774 million people aged 15 and older are illiterate, an infographic (pdf) from Unesco details. 52 percent (pdf) live in south and west Asia and 22 percent in sub-Saharan Africa. The latter region is where most of the countries with the lowest literacy rates in the world are located, according to data from the C.I.A.:
1. Burkina Faso: 21.8 percent of the adults in this West African country are literate.
2. South Sudan: This country in east Africa, which became an independent state in 2011, has a literary rate of 27 percent.
3 Afghanistan: 28.1 percent of this country’s population are literate with a far higher percentage of men (43.1 percent) than women (12.6 percent) able to read.
4. Niger: The ratio of men to women in this landlocked western African country is also lopsided: the literacy rate is 42.9 percent for men, 15.1 percent for women and 28.7 percent overall.
5. Mali: Niger’s neighbor on the west, the literacy rate in Mali is 33.4 percent. 43.1 percent of the adult male population can read and 24.6 percent of the country’s women.
6. Chad: This west African country is Niger’s neighbor on its eastern border; 34.5 percent of its population is literate.
7. Somalia: Long beset by civil war and famine, 37.8 of Somalia’s population is literate. 49.7 percent of the adult male population is literate but only 25.8 percent of adult females.
8. Ethiopia: Somalia’s neighbor to the north, the literacy rate in Ethiopia is 39 percent.
9. Guinea: 41 percent of this west African country’s population is literate. More than half (52 percent) of adult males are literature and only 30 percent of women.
10. Benin: 42.4 percent of Benin in West Africa are literate.
Bendover, see Awrastaale's point. Like I said before, to you everything is about BARRE, BARRE, BARRE.
To you, the economic and developmental state of Somalis is entirely about Barre and not;
1. The people (nomadic herdsmen)
2. Culture (pastoralism)
3. Resources (almost zero except livestock)
Etc etc etc
Somalia's deficiencies compared to say Madagascar in GDP is not an indictment on Barre, perhaps it is resources with Madagascar having some of the world's largest rubber resources? What did the Arabs do to deserve their oil resources?
If you even had a basic understanding of economy, an appropriate comparison would be comparing Barre to the period in Somalia immediately before him. That way the "control" is the nation (including people, culture, resources, rtc) and what we would be analyzing is what did he contribute or take away from Somalia.
Essentially you cannot give one person a gallon of milk and another half a cup and then try to make a comparison about how many people they can feed. The practical comparison would be to give both the same glass of milk and see how many mouths they can feed.
For example, Somalia had a 10 year "democratic" government. Compare Barre's first 10 years to it or even the average of his reign to the 1960's to see his successes and failures with what he had.
Your argument about facts and figures are without context. They are literally in a vacuum. That you cannot understand that is a reflection of the limitations of your own deductive reasoning skills not understanding basic scientific methodology.
This is why we say Barre was the best thing to happen to Somali people in history and not Barre was the best thing to happen to the world.
It's called context.
God bless the Soviets.
Somethings never change. Somalia an
aid recipient since its inception.

Thats all they have, emotional pleas and propaganda. Failing that they play the fake nationalism card.Sauron and bendover backing up what they’re saying by sources. While voltage is writing emotional essays.
Bich sometimes the world doesn't revolve around your wide wet cunt. stop this constant nagging because you got slapped couple times and barred from the IPG. Even if you put on a g-string up your hairy ass and have Voltage pick you up for one night stand like Dafle use to pick up your uncle Warancade , it won't change the fact that Afweyne was one of the lowest African tin-pot dictator that left no country after his rule.If Barre is solely responsible for Somalia's GDP rather than its history (both governance and human development), resources, its geolocation (highly contested region where superpower rivalry spilled over and the nation became a proxy war, lifestyle such as pastoralism), then we should also blame Hargeisa pretend administration for the droughts, all the bole halls, lack of roads, the nonexistent GDP, the lack of international recognition, the poor education system.
If Barre held them back, why didn't they speed ahead like Singapore? Surely 28 years is more than enough to create tangible results. Barre ruled 21 year and if his 21 years created all the nightmares and misfortunes that you count, then 28 years should have been more than enough to reserve the situation. Instead what we have seen is things deteriorate far worse.
What have you gotto show for?
The great drought campaign: He used 615 trucks, 24 transport planes, he built 16 emergency landing airstrips, food provided, clothing. It was swift and phenomenal.
11,000 people came together to fight sand dunes in the great land erosion, degradation campaign. I am yet to see Muse Bihi bring together 11 people for common goal.
As someone from the Ethiopian-occupied Hawd, this is the Somali Republic that appeals to me most because when I sit across the table with the Galla, Amhara, Gurage, Tigre-----and they ask me what have the Somalis achieved. That's what I use against them. That's the proud Somali race. It's not mere fadhi ku dirir for my reer against that reer or hurting my cousin's feelings------its the bigger things. It's what I'm proud of us a Somali.
Like I said the Gallas, Amhara, Gurage and Tigres have not had a leader like Barre. Meles and Isaias were students of Barre. Each tried to micmic in his own right the way of Barre.
Stop crying and appreciate the good and not just focus on his short comings. There are 10000000s of pages on that. At least don't spoil one topic.
Bitch either refute what Ben presented or shut up at once , you shaking your booty on Voltage doesn't negate the facts the man presented. You are like an annoying mosquito buzzing in every shameful thread doing unsolicited niiko out of spite. You are an emotional whore , not take a break.^^Sorry mate don't speak Burmese.
Let me know when Google translator adds to its list.
These issues are for Somalis (and that means Muslim).
It doesn't concern al murtad who will get stoned even if he came to Muse Abdalle country
