    Ethiopia is not allowing Somalis in Ogaden a referendum on where they choose to go, not to mention the countless horrors Ethiopian soldiers have done in Ogaden.

    They can take Eritrea. Shame those in Eritrea doesn't like them. Ethiopia is now landlocked and surrounded by Muslim countries. Hehe.

    On the issue of Somaliland, I am no longer as sure as I used to be that Somaliland's Independence will be in the best interest.
    Yeah, you love the fact that Islam ruthlessly attacked Axum and made what WAS a largely peaceful, affluent, cultural kingdom landlocked and cut off from its international markets. You love the fact that though they actually helped Muhammed's family, Muslims still attacked Adulis, its most important city, and all but destroyed it... yeah, nice job...

    Always populated by Muslim Somalis? Christians were there long before Muslims were...

    Somalis have always populated HOA and those regions.
    Islam came to the region after Christianity sure, but Somalis were never once Christian. Never, never heard of a Non Muslim Somali.

    Doesn't matter, Somalis had no role in it
    I just want Ogaden back. It can take Eritrea if it persuades them being part of Ethiopia is better than being off alone but I doubt it will succeed.

    Somalis in Djibouti and Kenya have a home with their States, we wouldn't take that away and risk annexing.

    But I do want our land stolen from us by the Ethiopians. I hope Somalia settles for no more than the return of Ogaden. Ethiopia fears a strong Somalia and it should. The last time we had a war, we almost got back our land. It's only a matter of time, the second Somalia has peace. All eyes will be looking North to our neighbour
    Great! More wars in that very troubled area of the world.

    They must be kept isolated.

    All Ethiopia has to do is have a referendum. That is it to divert any wars in future or present.

    Islam came to the region after Christianity sure, but Somalis were never once Christian. Never.
    Too bad for them.

    Perhaps had they been Christian they might have become a first world country with wide-spread human rights, rather than an international basket case.

    Yeah right.

    Christianity is as toxic to Africa as Islam. Both religions were brought to Africans through colonialism, war, force and slavery. Not choice.
    If both religions were never in Africa. I am certain Africa would be better off

But this is not typical to Somalia. Africa as a continent has been raped by the rest of the world for a long time

    What wrongs have we Somalis done to the Bantus? It was the Arabs who brought them over during the slave trade. We most certainly did not enslave them for decades, whip them, force them to breed, gave them no rights whatsoever and even when forced to recognise Blacks rights, segregation attempts occurred or treat them as different to others. Not naming any names .... *cough* US
    The hell ya'll didn't!

    Not to mention, the treatment they saw at the hands of the Somali militiamen, during the civil war of the 90's.

    I thought all this time that you were a Brit. But now, I find out that you're a Somali Muslim and you want to condemn the United States for, whatever? What hypocrisy!

    I am a Brit LOL

    No really, we didn't. Majority of Somalis did not own slaves nor was there any business nor was there any Government policy in favour or against it and it was also isolated in small pockets of South Somalia. I am from North, there is no Bantus or former slave trade history here

    This isn't true. Christianity is doing good in Africa. I have missionary friends over there right now who are telling me incredible stories. Violence is toxic to Africa.

    Why is AIDs higher in Christian dominated regions than Muslims? It couldn't be because it is Catholic Christian policy to spread that condoms should not be used. Sentencing basically Africans to death

    My ancestors were not Muslim by choice, it was a religion that brought to us by the Arabs. Majority of Africa was not Christian by choice. It was something brought by the colonial powers spreading their views and in the process destroying Africa's owns beliefs whilst of course indulging in slavery on the side.

    I honestly think Africa would have been better off if none of the religions were brought over
