mooyee dhawaaq farax leh kama sugaayo: Total collapse
was the verdict of the much hyped Khartoum peace talks
between the TFG warlords and the ICU wadaado. And
now it seems the clash of the Maryooleey, Macaawisleey,
Moooryaan , Macangag, Mahbar, and Meles's Maxeeysato
I won?t be betting good news to come out of this at
all. For now I know that Somalia is a land blessed,
or should I befittingly say, cursed with mediocre
and backward politics lead by wrangling nomadic chieftains
who cloak themselves with sacrosanct and sinful garments
stained with the blood of its innocent and poor people.
Laba gardaro ku hishiisay, xaq kuma hishiiyaan: two
that have agreed on what is wrong can never agree
on what is right. That is precisely the adage my petrified
frozen brain cells can summon up at this moment of
daze and desolation. Longtime ago, I gave up on Somalia?s
many predisposed spoilers of peace: The warlords.
Now, I may as well give up on the many overrated swingers
of belief: The Wadaado.
get wrong, I prefer the Wadaado over the ruthless
warlords of the TFG. At least the Wadaado mean business
and are true to their Somali patriotism and pride.
The heroic leaders of the Islamic courts can?t be
bought with few pennies by our neighboring detractors.
The courts had already won our hearts and mind because
of their determination of pacifying the areas under
their control. Their success of ousting the cruel
warlords and, above all, the impetus they had to restore
the peace in Mogadishu defined them as the real deal.
The achievement they have brought into much of southern
Somalis could be summed up as spellbound miracle.
For that, I still have a higher regard for our Wadaado
for that impressive accomplishment and I think the
Wadaado are so far our best hope to recover from the
self-inflicted wounds of failure and statelessness.
Maybe, they are the real transition to democracy,
peace and stability in Somalia.
Nonetheless, I am little bit apprehensive with our
Wadaado warrior mentality to dialogue. The quick call
to wage Jihad on the warlords in Baidao and the invading
Tigre hordes, as the TFG protectors, is very tempestuous
to say the least. Instead of bolstering the sudden
peace on their expanse home turf, Mogdishu and much
of the south, our spirited Wadaado, blinded by their
sudden sway on Somali politics, are bound and determined
to wrestle with the TFG devils in Baidoa.
Because of gullibility and outright futility, I hope
against hope that things could change a little bit.
I hope our gallant Wadaado will think over this risky
approach of attacking Baidoa and thus not fall to
the Ethiopian Dictator?s trap. So far, Meles has outwitted
Somalis of all political persuasions. He ingeniously
managed to provoke the Islamic Courts to declare Jihad
against Ethiopia with the hope of warding off and
externalizing his internal woes and homegrown opposition.
By this threat from the ?Islamists?, the Ethiopian
dictator, by design, gains a domestic and nationalistic
sympathy from his subjects. True that Meles Zenawi
gave the courts the perfect pretext to fight to the
end to liberate their land from an Ethiopian hegemony.
Meles have studied the fierce pride of the Somalis
while he was a rebel guest of Siad Barre?s regime
and thus exactly mastered how to pull the right strings
to invoke the Somali ire. And that is why he forced
our sanctified Wadaado to so
amiably extend him the provocation of war in the name
of Jihad. Thus, now we are technically at war with
ourselves and with our intrusive neighbors.
Meles, the Ethiopian dictator?s thousands of militarized
peasants are already in our soil to back an already
weakened and ostracized warlord regime.
the paradoxical farce is even if the Wadaado attack
Baidoa, the TFG warlords are no where to be found.
They have already departed the city, trekking around
the world. The TFG president is taking a break from
his Baidoa prison and is in China to take part the
China-Africa trade summit. I wonder what a military
man will sell to lure the emerging giants of the east
to invest in a chaotic and unstable Somalia. Talk
about mistaken priorities! Maybe, it would have a
good gesture if he had included few business-minded
and entrepreneurial Wadaado in his delegation to China.
The TFG's foreign Minister is in London to unthinkably
plea with the British to recognize the secession of
its Ex-Colony from the rest of Somalia. Talk about
a subversive duplicity! And I bet the accidental novice
prime minister is either in Nairobi or Addis Ababa
to shine his IGAD master?s boots. Talk about a loyal
xeero lagu xagtaa ilkana ku nabad galaan: Instead
of offence, an alternative approach the Islamic courts
could employ to further weaken the already weak TFG
is possibly to enforce the economic sanctions they
have previously declared against Baidoa. Or perchance
they could bring the many good and sympathetic parliamentarians
in Baidoa to their fold and gradually convert them
to their celebrated cause. But if the Islamic Court?s
logic is the warlords in Baidoa are not smarter than
the ousted Mogadishu buffoons, it is emphatically
prudent to engage the Ethiopian invaders in a very
desolate territory far from Mogadishu. Still it is
going to be a disastrous gamble. The grave consequences
of such war are definitely not that encouraging. I
hope the courts are not accepting the resigned and
fatalistic wisdom of waxba dhowran meynee alloow dhagaxyo
soo daadi or Kala bax kitaabadaa qaba!
conclusion, Somalia is the land that proves that it
is possible to be both a warmonger and a leader at
the same time. Not one practical blueprint for peace
comes out of the muddled minds of the primitive tribal
chiefs of Somalia. In reality, that is what our self-styled
leaders are, tribal chiefs who still live in the stone
ages of darkness and debauchery. No matter what they
call themselves, wadaado, waxgarad, warato, waranlayaal,
wariyayaal, or warlords, they are still Geeljirayaal
and Burcad: warring camel-herders and marauders who
know only how to pillage and plunder. Sadly the loot
is and has always been Maandeeq: Somalia.
In order to have the supreme power in the land of
the living dead, a land already dubbed hell on earth;
blood must be always shed to justify these labels.The
lack of finding the middle ground and the lack of
wisdom to avoid face-to-face catastrophic war is why
after many years of failure and collapse, our people
are cursed with unremitting clannish conflicts and
wars. All the repetitive political deadlocks and many
ensuing peace conferences in distand lands point toward
the inescapable fact that peace and unity are already
placed in a Somali deeply digged grave.
this predictable carnage is not averted, we will be
dealing a very frightening calamity. So it is opportune
of Somalis of goodwill to intervene before it?s too
late. It is clear our neighboring enemies and other
meddling actors set us on a collision course of bloodletting
and chaos. The litany of all this despair is that
the blood thirsty Somali leaders learn how to avoid
another senseless bloodshed. I hope we are not geared
for a more violent and bloody regional rumble.
