Darood are spread out. Darood live in most northern Somali land which is Caluula, the most western Somali town which is Tuuli Gulled and most Southern Somali which is Ijaraa, Garissa County. In conclusion; Darood have more land than all other Somalis combine. Darood have a lot small towns
This has little to do with geographic spread and more to do with your lack of numbers. You just do not have the numbers to have a city as large as Hargeisa or Xamar. We have already established you are a minority 3rd place clan in Somalia after Hawiye and Raxanweyn, you are also an even more insignificant minority in Somaliland coming 3rd after Isaaq and Dir.
The geographic spread argument is not sound, remember, midgaans are also geographically spread out.
Somalis are naturally nomads especially the Darood and Dir (including iidoor), so comparing the amount of land we both own today should be enough to convince you that you are laangaab.
If you are so large, why haven't you guys ventured in to more lands like we did, seeing we are both nomadic clans?
Population of clans can be measured through the lands they reign over. For example, the largest Somali single sub clan is the Ogaden, and today they have the largest amount of land from Dhagahbuur to Tana River in Kenya. Midgaans don’t have a one single degaan for their own even Shaanshi who are like 4 people have Xamar weyne and Shaangani districts
This is a stupid argument.
Population figures can never be equated to geographic spread, that is an absurd statement to make, because if that is the case, Somalis would have the largest population in the Horn of Africa, if not in all of Africa due to their geographic spread.
You simply do not have the numbers or levels of economic activity necessary for a large city equal to Mogadishu or Hargeisa. Much of the land you are bringing up especially where MJ live is a desert no one is interested in. Which in part explains your status as a minority in Somaliland as well as Somalia.
