If you want peace, you don’t talk to your friends, but talk to your enemies as did by president Sadat.


You cannot get peace unless you talk to your enemies. On November 20, 1977, president of Egypt, Anwar Sadat, has begun his trip to Israel – the first Arab leader ever to visit the Jewish state. President Sadat’s plane landed at Ben Gurion airport at the start of his 36-hour visit. He was greeted by Israel’s Prime Minister Menachim Begin and Israeli President Ephraim Katzir and a 21-gun salute was fired in his honour  and the president addressed the Israeli Knesset. Few statements taken from his speech is the following:  God willing. Peace for us all on the Arab land, and in Israel as well, as in every part of this big world, which is so complexed by its sanguinary conflicts, disturbed by its sharp contradictions, menaced now and then by destructive wars launched by man to annihilate his fellow man. Finally, amidst the ruins of what man has built and the remains of the victims of Mankind, there emerges neither victor nor vanquished. The only vanquished remains man, God’s most sublime creation, man whom God has created – as Ghandi the apostle of peace puts it: to forge ahead to mould the way of life  and warship God almighty. I come to you today on solid ground, to shape a new life, to establish peace. We all, on this land, the land of God; we all, Muslims, Christians and Jews, worship God and no one but God. God’s teachings and commandments are love, sincerity. This visit was followed by Camp David accord which Egypt and Israeli has peace agreement that come, which ended 30 years of war with an historic peace treaty brokered by the United States. The ceremony on the White House lawn in Washington was broadcast live on television. The two leaders sealed the deal with a firm handshake, watched by a smiling President Jimmy Carter. Therefore if the the long hostilities between and Israeli that existed over 30 years has been resolved, our relationship with Khaatumo leadership is not complex in contrast the ex-relationship between Egypt and Israeli. Therefore, Somaliland must establish contact diplomatic channel with Khaatumo under the leadership of Ali Khalif Galadh, as this is the only suitable means that we can manage to influence the people in the eastern regions of Somali-land to be part of our administration.  


Peace comes from being able to contribute the best that we have, and all that we are, toward creating Somali land that supports everyone. But it is also securing the space for others to contribute the best that they have and all that they are. Over thousands of years, the conflict of war has changed dramatically with weaponry like guns, tanks, bombs, and airplanes, evolving from fist fights and daggers. Populations have been devastated over matters that purely involve the government. Peace is an occurrence of harmony characterized by the lack of violence, conflict behaviours and the freedom from fear of violence. Commonly understood as the absence of hostility and retribution, peace also suggests sincere attempts at reconciliation, the existence of healthy or newly healed interpersonal or international relationships, prosperity in matters of social or economic welfare, the establishment of equality, and a working political order that serves the true interests of all. If you want peace, you don’t talk to your friends. You talk to your enemies. Peace cannot be kept by force; it can only be achieved by understanding. A man on a thousand mile walk has to forget his goal and say to himself every morning, ‘Today I’m going to cover twenty-five miles and then rest up and sleep. Peace is a journey of a thousand miles and it must be taken one step at a time. Peace demands the most heroic labour and the most difficult sacrifice. It demands greater heroism than war.


 It demands greater fidelity to the truth and a much more perfect purity of conscience. We can never obtain peace in the outer world until we make peace with ourselves. Peace is not a relationship of nations. It is a condition of mind brought about by a serenity of soul. Peace is not merely the absence of war. It is also a state of mind. Lasting peace can come only to peaceful people. Peace is not an absence of war, it is a virtue, a state of mind, a disposition for benevolence, confidence, justice. Peace and friendship with all mankind is our wisest policy, and I wish we may be permitted to pursue it. Churchill was a warrior of some note, but valued an attempt to avoid war. Peace is preferable. The problem is, not everyone is willing to negotiate in good faith. That didn’t work out so well. Adolph Hitler wanted to conquer and occupy the countries around Germany, and to him negotiations were a means to an end and agreements reached would be ignored at Germany’s convenience. As desirable as peace is, it is simply not always obtainable in a world of people that think they can get what they want by violence. One of the most peaceful nations in Europe is Switzerland. They are armed to the teeth and have made it clear that they are willing to fight anyone who violates their borders. Neighbouring countries believe them because they are not bluffing. Heavily armed strong countries willing to fight if challenged tend to have a greater shot at peace then ambiguous countries, no matter how well armed, that enemies think they can attack with little danger of retaliation. At any time a war is reported in any part of Somaliland or Somalia, the international community leading by United Nations condemns such wars as war is recognized the worst means to solve conflicts. Somali federal government which have the blessing of the international community may also possible will involve our conflict with Khaatumo leadership and in the event that happens, this will weaken our negotiating power with the Somali government. I reality, internationally, Khaatumo leadership has benefited the hostilities, as always the internationally community support the weaker party of the conflict. 


We should realise the facts that war generate minus both man and materials whereas peace is contrary and therefore we should not leave any stone unturned to reach peace. There are several different sorts of pacifism, but they all include the idea that war and violence are unjustifiable, and that conflicts should be settled in a peaceful way.Many believe that pacifism is more than opposition to war. They argue that it must include action to promote justice and human rights. Absolute pacifists usually hold this view as a basic moral or spiritual principle, without regard to the results of war or violence, however they could logically argue that violence always leads to worse results than non-violence. Studies released recently by some scholars with respect to African civil wars says the following. Contrary to popular belief, Africa’s civil wars are not due to its ethnic and religious diversity. Using recently developed models of the overall incidence of civil wars in 161 countries between 1960 and 1999, we draw lessons with special reference to Africa, showing that the relatively higher incidence of war in Africa is not due to the ethno-linguistic fragmentation of its countries, but rather to high levels of poverty, failed political institutions and economic dependence on natural resources. We argue that the best and fastest strategy to reduce the incidence of civil war in Africa and prevent future civil wars is to institute democratic reforms that effectively manage the challenges facing Africa’s diverse societies. To promote inter-group cooperation in Africa, specially tailored political governance and economic management institutions are needed, and we advance some hypotheses on the nature of such institutions. We suggest that Africa’s ethnic diversity in fact helps – rather than impedes – the emergence of stable development as it necessitates inter-group bargaining processes. These processes can be peaceful if ethnic groups feel adequately represented by their national political institutions and if the economy provides opportunity for productive activity. 


Every Action has an Equal and Opposite Reaction? This is the third of Sir Issac Newton’s laws of physics, and one that is very important to space flight. Here’s how it works. If you push on anything, it pushes back on you. That’s why if you lean against the wall, you don’t just fall through it. The wall pushes back on you as hard as you push on it, and you and the wall stay in place. If you throw something, you put more force behind it than just leaning on it, so it pushes back with more force. This is hard to observe, because usually, if you throw something away from you, the friction between you and the floor makes resistance to keep you in place. But if you take away the friction and try again, you will move away from the thing you threw as much as it moves away from you. The bigger the push, the bigger the push back. That’s why cannons and guns recoil. As the cannon ball flies on one direction, the cannon move in the opposite direction. If we turn the cannon up on end, it gets a little closer to how a rocket works. The force that pushes the cannon ball down also pushes the cannon up. But since the cannon is bigger than the cannon ball it has more inertia acting to keep it in one place. We would need a larger force to push the cannon a great distance. If we could make a long continuous hot explosion in the cannon, instead of one quick one, we could push the cannon a far distance. The air that is heated would push out the back, pushing the cannon in the opposite direction. This is how jets work as well as how rockets get into space. Remember, because every action has an equal and opposite reaction something will go forward if it is pushing matter behind itself. When one body exerts a force on a second body, the second body simultaneously exerts a force equal in magnitude and opposite in direction on the first body.The idea whole behind this theory is that war generates another war and peace initiatives generates lasting peace. Therefore, let us chose the one that saves both men and materials and avoid short sighted policies that depend on emoticons, as anger and emotions both short lived.
