Britain is leaving once-stable Somaliland to the mercy of al-Shabaab Islamist militants –

The coordinated suicide bomb attacks in Somaliland’s capital Hargeisa two weeks ago shattered more than a decade of stability. Yet the despite the continuing threat hanging over this former British protectorate, the British government will not act to properly protect the fledgling democracy. Since tearing itself from a bloody union with the violent southern half of Somalia, Somaliland to the...

Mitrovica and bridge which disconnects

Since 1999 Mitrovica has been the flashpoint of ethnic tensions in Kosovo. Mass demonstrations, violent clashes, shootings and teargas, but also manipulation of media for propaganda interests came familiar also to me while working there 2000-2002. Mitrovica bridge came as symbol of confrontation between Serbs and Albanians and in spite of many multiethnic projects and experiments it still is, especially...

Kosta, my son, has entered public school (elementary, but i call it Hauptschule :)) three years ago. Of course, he had his own problems (apart from school violence), switching from computer keyboard to pen and paper :), but I’ve told him that school is more social than scientific, knowledge gathering institution. I’ve noticed they don’t have much to do (while illiterate), but to draw/sketch/paint....


Erle Frayne Argonza Cryptic night to everyone! Cryptic indeed, as we all received this cryto-fascist measure led by the Aryan Master Race prototype, Arnold the Terminator, that reverses the state law concerning gay marriage in his wealthy state of California. Arnold the Terminator is getting to resemble closer now the same dreaded morbidity machine of the movie series that featured him as the old prototype...

Obama Named Hope

OBAMA NAMED HOPE With regard to the latest US presidential elections, like many times before, we as a public remain introvert and autistic. The only matters that Macedonians care about consist of the “name issue” (the dispute between Macedonia and Greece over the name), partisan and ethnic divides as well as European integrations. It is where our interest for the rest of the world ends. The presidential...

EU squanders aid-money by wrong approach in Western Balkans

On 5 November 2008 the Commission adopted its annual strategy document explaining its policy on EU enlargement. Furthermore, the 2008 progress reports were published on the same date, where the Commission services monitor and assess the achievements of each of the candidate and potential candidates over the last year. Regarding Serbia and Kosovo the reports are giving quite different picture, even...

Somaliland is Growing Stronger as a State within a failed State

Although Somaliland is not recognized as an independent state, in reality, it functions as one. Despite the recent attack on the president’s palace, Ethiopian consulate and the UNDP headquarters in the capital, Hargeisa – suspected to have been carried out by Islamic militants – the breakaway Republic of Somaliland remains largely unaffected by the chaos that persists in southern...


Erle Frayne Argonza From my highland nest in Manila goes Big Kudos to Barack Obama & US Democrats! My first elation has to do with the fact that Obama represents my generation of ‘post-industrial babies’, comprising of those aged 55 and younger. Obama represents a broader worldwide trend of leaders who are veering away from intolerant/polarized values towards one of ‘tolerance for difference’....

Africa’s Woe

Many African Analyst depict the prsent state of Africa as a product of Africans colonialist experience. As an individual, i do not fully subscribe to that. Africa`s experience of Nation Building and Poverty of leadership has been a point of neglect. The Heterogenous composition of many African States and the struggle for recognition, autonomy and resource control has continually undermined development. The...


In 2008 Judith Sephuma, a South African, released her album entitled: “Change is here!” She may have been referring to the outcome of the United States Election 2008 following this historic victory of President-Elect Barack Obama following a dignified and honourable concession by John McCain.

About the American Election2008

Today, I am excited because I know I am a part of history. In America, today we were able to exercise our God given right– that of voting. If Obama wins he will be noted as America’s first African-American President and I shall be most happy! If McCain wins, I will congratulate the spirit of his come back, as this type of spirit is rooted in the souls of Americans but I shall also be sad for...
