SSC[edit]

ssc regions of somalia is where the darwith anti-colonial movements emerged and its historic capital where the taleh. currently its the temporary capital city of khatumo state of somalia. this state did not bleive the secessionist theocracy of somaliland, while it was under the british protectorate during colonialism. khatumo state of somalia has numerous population of livestock, water lakes and the NOGAL patrol is enriched throughout its regions.

SSC is currently in open conflict with Puntland. An update of both current events and analysis is required. HOA Monitor (talk) 01:25, 28 December 2013 (UTC)

An objective assessment of the Khatumo State's political support and territorial control is required here. HOA Monitor (talk) 01:32, 28 December 2013 (UTC)

SSC does not exist as a political movement since its leader Saleban "Haglatosiye" joined the Somaliland cabinet. However if you are mistaking it with Khatumo then it's not correct either because itself is now split with one of its 3 presidents joining forces with Puntland.<ref>"Somaliland: Halgatosiye Assumes His Rightful Place in the Cabinet". Archived from the original on 27 September 2013. </ref><ref>"Somalia: Puntland troops clash with militia in Taleh, 8 killed". Archived from the original on 4 December 2013. </ref> It would then be correct to say that a segment of Khatumo is in conflict with Puntland. 26oo (talk) 02:10, 29 December 2013 (UTC)

Khatumo State name in somali language[edit]

In article: Maamul Goboleedka Khaatumo ee Soomaaliya

But in document from [1] Khatumo is named Dawlad Goboleedka Khaatumo ee Soomaaliya. Where is true? --Nicolay Sidorov (talk) 09:50, 9 January 2014 (UTC)

They're both used, but they mean slightly different things. Maamul means "Administration", and Dawlad means "State". Middayexpress (talk) 15:00, 9 January 2014 (UTC)

Somaliland forces advance on Taleh during Khatumo conference[edit]

Yes, and they pulled out a few days later [3]. Middayexpress (talk) 21:20, 7 July 2014 (UTC)

and now? http://sabahionline.com/en_GB/articles/hoa/articles/newsbriefs/2014/06/13/newsbrief-03

not only that Somaliland just captured Saxxdeer and the president of Khatumoo state is nowhere in Sool he run to Ethiopia's village of Origoo

These movements change by the day. Somaliland troops will likely pull out shortly, as there is domestic and international pressure for them to do so. The Somali federal government, United States Representative for Somalia James P. McAnulty, UN Special Representative for Somalia Nicholas Kay and European Union Ambassador Michele Cervone d’Urso have all called for Somaliland to immediately withdraw its forces from Saaxdheer: http://www.jowhar.com/u-s-special-r-for-somalia-unsr-of-the-secretary-g-for-somalia-and-eu-amb-to-somalia-appeal-for-all-armed-forces-to-withdraw-from-saaxdheer-sool-region/ Middayexpress (talk) 16:14, 31 August 2014 (UTC)

is that what your defense is based upon? read this http://somalilandpress.com/somaliland-us-un-eu-offices-for-somalia-should-keep-off-our-internal-affairs-53647

Somaliland stated clearly it will not withdrow from Sahdeer. Taleh was under the control pf Somaliland for two and half months now. What makes you think they will just handle it to Ali Khalif who was just kicked out of his own land? — Preceding unsigned comment added by 217.164.189.43 (talk) 17:27, 31 August 2014 (UTC)

Partisan blogs like the one above aren't reliable sources per WP:SPS and WP:NOTADVOCATE. That said, the jowhar link is relaying an official joint press statement from the United States Representative for Somalia James P. McAnulty, UN Special Representative for Somalia Nicholas Kay and European Union Ambassador Michele Cervone d'Urso. These officials demanded that all armed forces withdraw immediately from Saaxdheer. Here's the original press statement: http://unsom.unmissions.org/Default.aspx?tabid=6254&ctl=Details&mid=9770&ItemID=30565&language=en-US Middayexpress (talk) 18:33, 31 August 2014 (UTC)

Funny, how come you used it here?

http://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=2010_Ayn_clashes&action=history

At any rate, our discussion is not about what the UN said, it's about the end of Khatumoo state after it leader withdraw from his own state. Khatumo state president is on the run, most of His militia has been absorbed to Somaliland forces in Taleex, some are under arrest, and the rest are either dead or crossed the Ethiopian border What is left for Khatumoo state? 217.164.177.224 (talk) 19:36, 31 August 2014 (UTC)

That's not a dif dear fellow; that's a random link. You also have not established that Khatumo State is defunct. Frankly, I don't see how you could when Galayr both vowed to re-capture Las Anod from Somaliland troops and designated it his administration's new capital (it's not Taleh anymore). Middayexpress (talk) 19:44, 31 August 2014 (UTC)

what do you mean "random link" the link I presented was a pro-Puntland, anti-Somaliland newspaper. Galyer said in his own words "We want peace and we want good neighborhood but in the meantime we will never accept imposed and forced administration brought by Somaliland to take over our land... I condemn the bare and wicked invasion by Somaliland forces with the strongest terms." saying these words from another country is a clear sign of defeat. Where is his "new capital" express? The man barley managed to run from his last stronghold in Sahder how will he take back Lasanood? Again I do not plan to make this longer than it really takes. We'll continue this with a presence of an n administrator tomorrow I am a bit busy now. Take care217.164.177.224 (talk) 20:26, 31 August 2014 (UTC)

I was talking about your internal link there. At any rate, Galayr indeed made those declarations. Per the Khatumo Forum for Peace, Unity and Development, Las Anod is the Khatumo administration's new declared capital; it's no longer at Taleh [4]. Middayexpress (talk) 21:43, 31 August 2014 (UTC)

oh please! who do you think you'r talking to? Galayr indeed made those declarations AFTER he was chased out from Sahdder. His declaration and vows regarding Sool region has no value once he was chased out from there. Clerly you do not want to admit it...217.164.177.44 (talk) 07:53, 1 September 2014 (UTC)

I'm pretty certain I have an idea who I'm talking to. In any event, the declaration of Las Anod as Khatumo's new capital actually predates the Saaxdheer raid. Galayr made it upon his election [5]. Middayexpress (talk) 19:49, 1 September 2014 (UTC)


I lost hope on you running in empty circles. My point was clear, he is the new president of Khatumoo state, and he lost his last stronghold in Sool. His pervious declarations are irrelevant to these recent events. At any rate, you clearly do not want to peruse for a fair resolution. We need a third party intervention to mediate between us.217.164.184.21 (talk) 23:01, 1 September 2014 (UTC)

No need for a 3O, I will just update the article...23:42, 1 September 2014 (UTC)217.164.184.21 (talk)

SSC clans[edit]

I think that you messed a large clan that inhabitants the SSC regions witch is the Isaaq — Preceding unsigned comment added by 217.164.188.227 (talk) 15:45, 31 August 2014 (UTC)

According to various maps and data so far, it looks like very few Isaaq live in this region of Somalia. AcidSnow (talk) 15:50, 31 August 2014 (UTC)
Indeed [6]. Middayexpress (talk) 16:14, 31 August 2014 (UTC)

I have a better picture that represents the situation in north Somalia. The picture of Middayexpress is relying on a very old Data and represents the situation in all of Somalia plus, its a lot modern and accurate

http://hornofafrica.ssrc.org/Hoehne/printable.html

well Sanaag is a very large region according to the old Somali system it has 3 districts Cel Afwyen, Erigavo, Las qorey the cel Afwyene disrict in inhabitabt by the Habar jeclo sub clan of the Isaaq, the large central district of Erigavo is inhabitant by all clans the northern portion is Isaaq (Habar jeclo&Habar Yoonis) the southern is Darood (Warsangali and Dhulbahanti) the eastern ditrict of Lasqory is inhabitant by the Darood with a prssence of Isaaq in General they inhabitant 45 to 50% of the region total area

Yes, Sool region is mostly held by the Dhulubahanti sub clan of the Darood but a large chunk of it (Aaynabo District) or what we call Saraar is almost exclusively inhabitant by the Habar Jeclo sub clan of the Isaaq. Also they have few settlements in Xudur it must have grown by now, in general, 25 to 30& of Sool region is inhabitant by Isaaq ...

As for the Cayn region is also shared between the Dhulbahanti and the Isaaq but I do not have the exact figures

so I think we should include theme in the discretion since they control a very large chunk of SSC — Preceding unsigned comment added by 217.164.188.227 (talk) 16:48, 31 August 2014 (UTC)

Your joking right? That's the same map you just used for the Isaaq page..... Even this "new" map is almost the same as the other one. Other than that your whole reply is orginal research which is not accepted here. AcidSnow (talk) 16:56, 31 August 2014 (UTC)

well it had clear figures unlike the new one it present the numbers of the Isaaq in the larger Somalia not north of it

and its not a research its a well cited article and was used by Middayexpress in the article of Sool clashes 2010, if that was the case, many of your articles regarding Somali is based on researches we gonaa have great times 217.164.189.43 (talk) 17:19, 31 August 2014 (UTC)

I don't really understand what your saying. Anyways, that link is not in the 2010 clash nor does it give the forgives your claiming; which I already told is original research. AcidSnow (talk) 17:34, 31 August 2014 (UTC)

My bad, its in Puntland-Somaliland dispute here

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Puntland%E2%80%93Somaliland_dispute#cite_note-14

And since you don't recognize it here is this one?

http://www.refworld.org/cgi-bin/texis/vtx/rwmain?page=search&docid=3ae6a5bf0&skip=0&query=Erigavo%20clans&coi=SOM

217.164.177.224 (talk) 18:03, 31 August 2014 (UTC)

That link is from almost twenty years ago. It also doesn't say that the Isaaq predominantly inhabit Sool, Sanaag and Cayn. They obviously don't or the territorial conflict there wouldn't exist. Middayexpress (talk) 18:33, 31 August 2014 (UTC)

It does not matter how old the source is as long a its still make a relaible refrence, the fact finding mission was in 97 how much the Demographics could change? (if not for the favor of Isaaq) if you have something new I am open minded

secondly, unlike you I never said the Isaaq primarily inhabitant the entire two regions as they quite huge for a single clan to claim it

finally, you have no prove or evidence that the Warasangli or the Dhulubahanti primarly inhabitant SSC regions let alone the regional capital Erigavo (which its Isaaq by they way with a pressence of Darood, Gabooy, Sameroon). all what you have is a suspicious "old" book that you entire arguments depende on, I can go to "google books" and bring countless books that says the opposite. if you are do confident, give us a link to you infmouse source

here is addtional sources


even this biased source shows Darood are not in control of all SSC

217.164.177.224 (talk) 19:17, 31 August 2014 (UTC)

With respect, you are confusing two separate issues: the actual clan composition of the Sool, Sanaag and Cayn provinces versus territorial control of that area by Somaliland/Puntland/Khatumo. None of your links claim that Isaaq are a significant resident clan in that territory. Indeed, the CIA map makes it clear that Sool and Cayn are predominantly inhabited by the Dhulbahante, while Sanaag is predominantly inhabited by the Warsangali [7]. Middayexpress (talk) 19:36, 31 August 2014 (UTC)

Why are you running in circles? I am not talking about the maps I am talking about the Demography of SSC. Here you have a clear report on the Demo of Sanaag but you choose to ignore it in favor of an blank inaccurate map, yet you refuse to accept another more detailed map that shows the boundaries of the tribal clans residing there?

also your only source does not indicate Darood being a " significant " clan in SSC nor I think a blank map does?

We need one of the Admin to mediate between us.

217.164.177.224 (talk) 19:57, 31 August 2014 (UTC)

Be my guest, User:217.164.177.224. Your linked map still unfortunately doesn't say anything about clan composition [8], unlike the official CIA demographic map [9]. I should also point out that the admin User:Gyrofrog originally uploaded the CIA map [10]. Middayexpress (talk) 20:33, 31 August 2014 (UTC)


I was talking about those two

http://www.eth.mpg.de/cms/en/people/d/mhoehne/project.html

http://www.refworld.org/cgi-bin/texis/vtx/rwmain?page=search&docid=3ae6a5bf0&skip=0&query=Erigavo%20clans&coi=SOM

so clearly thae Isaaq have a large pressence in SSC at least to west of Erigavo, Hudun district, Bahodale

It would be great if User:Gyrofrog managed to join us. Anyway, you have not present any source that support your claim that SSC is only inhabitant by the Darood. Yo have to start give us some answers too, we'll continue later — Preceding unsigned comment added by 217.164.177.224 (talk) 20:43, 31 August 2014 (UTC)

None of your links claim that Isaaq are a significant resident clan in the Sool, Sanaag and Cayn provinces (that was your original assertion above: "I think that you messed a large clan that inhabitants the SSC regions witch is the Isaaq"). Indeed, the first one doesn't even mention the Isaaq. Ironically, like the CIA, it instead indicates with regard to the Sool, Sanaag and Cayn provinces that Garowe/Puntland argues that "they are predominantly inhabited by Harti-clans belonging to the Darood-clan-family". I also did not say that Sool, Sanaag and Cayn is only inhabited by the Darod. I quite clearly indicated that "the CIA map makes it clear that Sool and Cayn are predominantly inhabited by the Dhulbahante, while Sanaag is predominantly inhabited by the Warsangali" [11]. So it's really the CIA distribution map itself that you're suggesting is wrong. Regards, Middayexpress (talk) 21:15, 31 August 2014 (UTC)
Here's a map from 2012. AcidSnow (talk) 21:23, 31 August 2014 (UTC)
Looks pretty similar to the CIA map. Middayexpress (talk) 21:43, 31 August 2014 (UTC)
That's because the regions really have not changed since the last time it was done. Though I don't understand how the CIA can say 6% are ethnic minorities than later say that 15% of Somalia is ethnic minorities. AcidSnow (talk) 21:48, 31 August 2014 (UTC)


First of all, the new map that was present by Acidsnow is the same pervious map presented by Middayexpress, the only thing is different is the colors, it was re-published in 2012 without any change. The map is very old dated from 77, it was re-published in 1992, 2002 and in different colors in 2012.

http://www.lib.utexas.edu/maps/africa/somalia_ethnic77.jpg 1977 version

http://www.lib.utexas.edu/maps/africa/somalia_ethnic92.jpg 1992 version

http://www.lib.utexas.edu/maps/africa/somalia_ethnic_grps_2002.jpg 2002 version

http://www.lib.utexas.edu/maps/africa/txu-pclmaps-oclc-795784383-somalia_2012_clan_distro.jpg

2012 version

So other than using it for accurate figures in 1977, it does not seem to be valid. However it is interesting to note that even in the old map the Habar Yoonis and the Habar Je'lo had a good presence in Sool and Sanaag regions.

But, it is better to use this one because it was made in 2003 and shows clearly the disputed areas of SSC of witch Puntland claims it is inhabitant by their fellow Harti Darood.

http://www.eth.mpg.de/cms/en/people/d/mhoehne/project.html

This report alone makes any of your outdated maps irrelevant since it describes the situation much more accurately speacially in Sanaag "The four major population groups in the Sanaaq region were respectively the Harti clans Warsangeli and Dhulbahante and the Isaq clans Habr Jallo and Habr Yonis, all of which were roughly the same size. Yet the region's main city Erigavo was wholly dominated by the Habr Jallo and Habr Yonis. In addition to the Harti and Isaq clans, there were a number of very small clans, none of which was subject to any form of clan-based persecution..."

http://www.refworld.org/cgi-bin/texis/vtx/rwmain?page=search&docid=3ae6a5bf0&skip=0&query=Erigavo%20clans&coi=SOM

Even puntland (who wish to control all Harti-Darood inhabitant lands in SSC) does not claim the entire Sool and Sanaag region. They left a very generous chunk of Sool and Sanaag (obviously because there is no Darood there)217.164.177.44 (talk) 07:42, 1 September 2014 (UTC)

The million Dollar question! Do you have any sources that support your allegations? According to Wiki "Exceptional claims require exceptional sources" per WP:REDFLAG and WP:EXCEPTIONAL you have not presented any by stating "Most residents belong to the Somali ethnic group, with the Dhulbahante sub-clan of the Harti Darod especially well-represented." Remember, you still claim the entire Sanaag region and Sool regions (including the western portions):http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/1/1a/KhatumoStateloc.PNG

"surprising or apparently important claims not covered by multiple mainstream sources; Challenged claims that are supported purely by primary or self-published sources or those with an apparent conflict of interest;[8] Reports of a statement by someone that seems out of character or against an interest they had previously defended; Claims that are contradicted by the prevailing view within the relevant community, or that would significantly alter mainstream assumptions, especially in science, medicine, history, politics, and biographies of living people. This is especially true when proponents say there is a conspiracy to silence them."

Also, per WP:NPOV,WP:NPV,WP:POV you must mention all points of view "Editing from a neutral point of view (NPOV) means representing fairly, proportionately, and, as far as possible, without bias, all of the significant views that have been published by reliable sources on a topic." clearly you have not achieved that by Ignoring the presence of Isaaq in the outdated map in Sool and Sanaag and selectively choosing a Pro-Khatumoo webpages that denies their existence in favor of other much smaller tribes residing in the area.

Additionally, like most of your articles, your main source is based upon pure Original Research. This report cannot be considered a reliable source.

http://www.somaliareport.com/index.php/post/3271/What_is_Khatumo_State

Therefore I request removing it.217.164.182.154 (talk) 15:52, 1 September 2014 (UTC)

here is an additional links to couple books that proves the Isaaq clan making a significant portion of Sanaag region in equal withe the neighboring Darood clans.

A single un-accessible book that you presented as a source does have much credibility either.

http://books.google.ae/books?id=oewbAQAAIAAJ&redir_esc=y — Preceding unsigned comment added by 217.164.188.30 (talk) 18:35, 1 September 2014 (UTC)

You are not reading the CIA map properly [12]. It obviously doesn't claim that all of Sool, Sanaag and Cayn is inhabited by Harti (Dhulbahante & Warsangali here), but rather that that is the numerically dominant clan in these areas. The same goes for the Isaaq in Woqooyi Galbeed and Togdheer (note how it doesn't mention the Madhiban, though they of course inhabit that area as well). That said, the CIA map hasn't changed much over the years because the dominant clan composition in these areas hasn't either. AcidSnow's distribution map also doesn't appear to be from the CIA, but rather from the Fsgroup, which used ethnographic data from I.M. Lewis (see the bottom [13]). The refworld link above is thus adequate for noting that Isaaq also inhabited Sanaag, but not for its claim that they were roughly equal in size to the Harti clans there. As for that last Arabic text link, I didn't link to it so I'm not sure what you're talking about. Middayexpress (talk) 19:49, 1 September 2014 (UTC)

Don't you get tired repeating the same thing over and over? I already explained why the CIA map is not suitable fot your allegations and I do not intend on repeating myself again here http://www.lib.utexas.edu/maps/somalia.html

Go down into the Thematic Maps you will find your files labeled as Ethnic Groups with the dates of publications and the source (CIA) along. The 2012 is the same with a slight different in colors. With everything that happened to Somalia in almost 40 years (tribal and foreign wars, several famines, large scale of internal displaced people etc...) the new map is merely a copy of the old map and widely misrepresents the current situation in Somalia. My map was made in 2003 and it focuses much more on the disputed land in North Somalia regions of SSC.

Clearly my sources are much more reliable and modern than your single, outdated source as I presented links and reports to support my claim. You on the other hand make random and unrealistic justifications for example: "The refworld link above is thus adequate for noting that Isaaq also inhabited Sanaag, but not for its claim that they were roughly equal in size to the Harti clans there" My source clearly says the opposite and your reason is not enough. Yet, you have not presented any prove that they are numerically dominant clan as it well known that the Warsangali are the smallest clan in the Harti confederation. Describing an old map will not do you much good.217.164.184.21 (talk) 22:50, 1 September 2014 (UTC)

You were told several times now to stop adding partisan blogs, seek consensus, and stop pov pushing. Although you were still given the benefit of the doubt, it's clear from your UAE geolocation that you are yet another ip sock of User:Reer Woqooyi. The disruption ends here. Middayexpress (talk) 17:12, 2 September 2014 (UTC)

First, the links you presented is the partisan blogs and an Original research of witch it is not accepted here. Secondly, as a member of Wiki you must assume good faith:

As already pointed out to you, that demographic map is from the CIA, not a "partisan blog" [14]. The only actual partisan blogs are your own links to sites like Somalilandinformer, which the Dubai-based Reer Woqooyi was of course quite fond of. Middayexpress (talk) 18:52, 2 September 2014 (UTC)
As I said before, clearly we are not getting anywhere. We need an opinion from a Third party. Therefore it is better to ask one of the administrators to mediate between us.

The reliability of sources[edit]

The validity of sources[edit]

Many of the sources on this page are based on pure original researches . Therefore It is not valid & and should be removed ASAP.

Some of the sources:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Khatumo_State#cite_note-Srwiks-3 haveily relied on here despite having no backbone.


http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Khatumo_State#cite_note-4 A parastrian article by a "poltical analyst" is not welcomed here.

I suggest you remove these so called references, or else, I'll take it to the noticeboard. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 86.99.102.81 (talk) 15:04, 30 January 2015 (UTC)

I am sorry, I didn't realize your reply till now. But, with respect, you know Awdal state does not exist in the first place! The "proposed state" only exist on Wikipedia which I find it a great shame since the quality of the sources in that page is even worse than Khatumoo's. It's a big lie that was pushed by the 2 user's (or maybe more) who try to further their agenda and very bias point of view towards Sool, Sanaag, Cayn and Awdal regions. Back to the issue, the first website (about us) is very odd don't you think? I mean does this sound realistic? "The diaspora from Sool, Sanaag and Cayn.... the people from the SSC regions of Northern Somalia" It sounds hilarious to me and unrealistic since almost half of the population there (Isaaq) are die hard pro-Somaliland while the majority of the residents of the far eastern regions (Darood) are pro-Somaliland as well. There is no 3rd party publisher or source to back up their major claims as the sole and legitimate representers to the different populations of these large regions, thus we can conclude that it's obviously a self published source. Wikipedia:Verifiability#Self-published sources

The other website is functioning but it's closer to a blog than it is to a news paper http://www.awdalstate.com/ 90% of the articles are in Somali. The few articles there in English like the one you just post is mostly an opinion by an anonymous writer and should be considered as OR. It lacks neutrality & Biased toward Khatumoo & Somalia, you can see it clearly advertising and praising the "Khatumoo management" in the last paragraph. Which it's strange since the site is supposed to be concerned with "Awdal state" Matter of fact, it goes against the non-advo policy followed here in Wikipedia. It's backed with opinions regarding third parties (Somaliland, Somalia) which it's enough to be labeled as non reliable source. 92.96.190.168 (talk) 17:55, 1 February 2015 (UTC) 92.96.190.168 (talk) 18:13, 1 February 2015 (UTC)

DRN request[edit]

A request for dispute resolution was made on 30 January 2015 for issues raised on this talk page. The thread is at Wikipedia:Dispute resolution noticeboard#Talk:Khatumo State#SSC_clans. Parties are encouraged to add their own "Summary of dispute" sections prior to discussion being opened. DRN volunteer Bejnar (talk) 21:57, 31 January 2015 (UTC)

NSUM[edit]

The NSUM website is only used to note the organization's mission. Had it been used for controversial assertions regarding rival political authorities, then that indeed would not be neutral. Regarding awdalstate, it too is not on anything political, but rather on the establishment of the new Taleh Airport. Middayexpress (talk) 19:24, 1 February 2015 (UTC)

At least we could see that you have finally dropped the attitude and the discussion for sake of discussion fallacy.

Make a stand here midday, you either go for NSUM, SSC or Khaatumo. They are not the same thing you know.86.99.96.160 (talk) 03:58, 2 February 2015 (UTC)

Nice to see you to Reer Woqooyi! How are you this fine day? AcidSnow (talk) 04:40, 2 February 2015 (UTC)

I see that we are on the same page here regarding the the first two sources which both fall short in miles in reference reliability. Perhaps we can do some clean to the miss all around this article. I can understand if you can't have an urge or a motive to do so since it's your hard work essentially. 92.96.160.44 (talk) 14:20, 2 February 2015 (UTC)
