The organizers of defraud Taleex Meeting assured to Somaliland authorities that the meeting will address tribal issues of Dhulbahante of eastern Somaliland, and no politics will be discussed. However, the meeting turned into political where the dishonest organizers declared government within Somaliland eastern territory.
Somaliland authorities did not interfere the meeting until its hidden hanky-panky agenda came to light, and they voted for creating new state out the eastern parts of Somaliland. Somaliland ordered its army to move into Buuhoodle Town, where the organizers planned to nominate as the capital of the new administration. The town was brought under the control of the army in hours, and later the army withdrew in order to avoid civilian casualties.
The organizers sponsored gorilla armed group called SSC fighting Somaliland at its eastern parts. The organizers financed the group to fight and destabilize Somaliland and the region but they failed to stop the army. Somaliland government don't interfere the tribal meetings as long as it doesn't discuss politics.
The creation of new state "KHAATUMO" out of Somaliland eastern regions could have undermine the stability and peace of the region in last two decades if the army did not stop. The SSC armed group attacked Somaliland army with artillery shelling, which created panic between the residents of Buuhoodle Town who abandoned their homes to more secure places, in a fear of stronger army retaliation.
The hijacked TALEEX Meeting concluded the creation of new regional authority named "KHAATUMO State of Somalia". All members of G6 group who organized the TALEEX Meeting are America and Europe. They want to gain political power at the expenses of the local people.
The gangsters who organized the meeting planned to disturb the security, stability and democracy in Somaliland. The self-styled gangsters agreed upon creation of regional state and against the will of the people in eastern regions of Somaliland. The gangsters, who are after political interest, claimed ownership of three regions in Somaliland (Sool, Sanaag and Buuhoodle), although, they make about 12% of Somaliland's total population. They misbelieve that one tribe owns the abovementioned three regions.
The gangsters are swindling the reality in Somaliland's eastern regions, in order to be become a regional authority according to the regulations of the federal government of "Somalia" in Mogadishu. They are destabilizing, displacing and killing their own towns for gaining recognition from the shaky transitional government of "Somalia", as a regional authority. They failed to understand that the people of these three regions particularly Buuhoodle Region need development but absolutely not a war.
The organizing gangsters of the hijacked Taleex Meeting have their families in North America and Europe. They come to Somaliland to create instability for illegal political gains, and their children are enjoying western education system, and world-class health at the expenses of the children in Buuhoodle Town who are dying from the political instability created by the gangsters.
The government of Somaliland has development projects for Buuhoodle Town as per Somaliland's National Budget 2012, including new schools, health centers and proper infrastructure. The development started in Laasaanood city, and Buuhoodle will not be much different.
The policy of creating government out of eastern regions of Somaliland will lead further bloodshed between the different tribes in the regions, who mainly support Somaliland. The gangsters believe use of force against others, who disobey their instructions, and Somaliland government will not allow parts of its territory to be used by gangsters and terrorists. The international community is trying to get long-lasting solution for the problem of former "Somalia" while the gangsters of TALEEX Meeting are creating chaos in one of the most peaceful regions in Africa.
The interesting point is: TALEEX gangsters claim Sool, Sanaag and Buuhoodle regions based on ethnicity (tribalism) and wrongly believe that the three regions belong to Dhulbahante tribe. However, if that is the case, why the gangsters don't demand parts of Ethiopia that is inhabited by Dhulbahante tribe! Or do the theory is applicable to Somaliland only?!
It is absolutely clear that majority of the gangsters are former colleagues of dead dictator Siyad Barre according to their bio-data. In 1990's, the gangsters convinced the former UN General Secretary Boutros Ghali to send UN Troops into "Somalia" and troops must capture Somaliland territory – although Somaliland was peaceful. But UN troops could not handle the heat of the brave General Mohamed Farah Aideed.
Moreover, the gangsters influenced transitional governments of "Somalia" in last 21years to stonewall Somaliland cause of independence, and they succeeded because every official in transitional government of "Somalia" rejects Somaliland's right of self-determination, even, without understanding the purpose and reason behind the cause.
Somaliland demography is based on the colonial border that was endorsed by the Organization of African Union (OAU) currently known African Union (AU) in 1964. These three regions are within Somaliland's colonial border that was part of OAU's endorsement.
As part of their hatred, the gangsters joined hands with parts of former "Somalia" to form the illegitimate semi-autonomous region of "Puntland", which hosts the world's modern pirates of today. They claimed aforesaid three regions of Somaliland, in order to undermine Somaliland's cause of sovereignty.
Somaliland development and democracy won international attention, which overshadowed the silly accusations and propagandas of the gangsters against Somaliland. After the gangsters failed to downgrade Somaliland democracy and progress, they formed armed militia to disturb the stability and security in Somaliland. However, Somaliland National Army crushed the militia and brought the evil agendas of the gangsters to the end…
The gangsters formed fake organizations Pen Names mainly in North America and Europe to campaign against Somaliland cause. They write thousands of articles to downgrade Somaliland.
Today the gangsters failed to unite over the outcome of the TALEEX Meeting, and the fugitive head of the SSC armed group Xagle Toosiye(Somali-American) rejected to accept the outcome. Toosiye is wanted across criminal for his involvement in armed attacks and suicide bombing in Somaliland. After TALEEX Meeting concluded against his interest, Toosiye rejected the outcome and called for peace with Somaliland.
Although Toosiye failed to accept the peace initiative by Somaliland President Siilaanyo one year ago, however, Somaliland will not turn down his peace application.
After collapse of former "Somalia", all Somaliland tribes met in Burao City in 1991 and signed the independence of Somaliland from rest of "Somalia". Again the initial agreement in Burao City was endorsed again in Boorame Accord. The boss of G6 Khalif Galaydh was elected as Somaliland Parliament Speaker, as he primarily believed in the independence of Somaliland. After Galaydh failed to achieve his political ambitions through Somaliland multiparty system, he decided to use force by SSC terrorist group. He is using TALEEX Meeting and so-called KHAATUMO as tool that will win him a seat in the upcoming London Somali Reconciliation Meeting.
Galaydh miscalculated Sool. Sanaag and Buuhoodle demography. He must know that more than 9 tribes own these regions and not only Dhulbahante. Galaydh and his henchmen in TALEEX Meeting attacked Somaliland through SSC, which led recent fighting in Buuhoodle Town after military posts were targeted with artillery shelling. The regional governments like Ethiopia must cooperate with Somaliland to flush out SSC terrorist who are destabilizing the region.
The main financial source for SSC group is piracy and drugs smuggling in addition to contributions from its Northern America and Europe. The illegal war of SSC group in the eastern regions of Somaliland disabled the planned development projects by Somaliland.
The existence of SSC in the border between Somaliland and "Somalia" will have negative impact on future cooperation between Somali people.
