    Abdiweli “Candho” is crying wolf! Who is violating whose territorial integrity and who is the aggressor here? Puntland!

    Somaliland is a peace loving country. We have no interest in other countries borders, but make no mistake, we have the right to vigorously defend our borders and territorial integrity from infiltrators like Somalia conspirators whose delusion and misguided mentality still make them think that they have jurisdiction over Somaliland, even after Somaliland reverted back to its own sovereignty and statehood 27 years ago. What a phantom-limb mentality!
