Ah, Somaliland. Former East African British colony. Then united in the 1960s with its southern, Italian colonial neighbour, to form modern Somalia. Ever since the hit the fan at the turn of the 1980s/1990s, it has held increasingly separatist views. Today, it is in many ways virtually independent of the southern half of the country, mostly along lines similar to those from the division from the colonial era. Internationally, it is still unrecognized.
Many AH.commers feel that this is unjustified and are generally supportive of the separation and independence of Somaliland from Somalia. Among this group of sympathizers is, unsurprisingly, our only known member from Somaliland.
