One obvious reason to me s that relative sanity seem to reign in the former,while obvious sanity seems to reign in the latter.

What are the fundamentals status that makes one different from the other.

correction please.
sanity seem to reign in the former,while obvious insanity seems to reign in the latter where elshababs had set base

Somaliland is independent from somalia(though not recognised)with a functioning goverment and constitution in place.
schools,shopping malls plus tourist centres exist in somaliland, unlike it's charred neighbour.
What's more,the relationship between somaliland and other EA countries is purely business, while that of somalia and the EA nations is AID based.

where is somalia6 when you need him?

I am just beginning to learn that some communities out there are on the pact with freedom,and the fact that united nation failed to recognise them shows how "peaceful' that monster organisation is.

Well don't be quick to put blame on the UN.Blame the AU instead because the UN will follow their lead.

I came across an interesting article which could help you understand the politics at play.

The primary reason that the African Union has given for not recognizing them is that they viewed Somalilands's claim as just another enclave seeking separation, and apparently this violates the principles of the African Union.

The African Union itself does not favour rearranging the borders of African countries, especially where there is no agreement. It feels that, rightly or wrongly, the colonial borders were fixed and that changing them would open up too much uncertainty.
The fact that Somalia refuses to recognize the existence of Somaliland is a significant factor in this. The matter is further complicated by the fact that there is another separationist movement in a tract of land called Puntland which joins these two regions. As long as this instability exists, it is unlikely that the African Union will recognize any country other than Somalia, so Somaliland and Puntland are both left out in the cold.
Until the African Union decides to recognize these regions as separate countries, it is unlikely that any other major country will do so.

The ugandan or so forces fighting the al shabbaab terrorist in somalia does not have a single helipcoter.No support from anywhere,not the UN, and not from african governments.

How are they suppose to win the battle?

It's AMISOM> AFRICAN UNION MISSION IN SOMALIA.

I think you need to update.The war started a year ago and has progressed till now.The major fight was fought using the most advanced weapons from satellite tracking to ground work.It was very strategic because proper planning,financing and cooperation from interested parties (local and foreign) went into it.
Note that, not everything could be brought out for the media as the war progressed because they didn't want to jeopardise their mission.
We only learnt of the victories and kept hoping that they finally enter mogadishu.
Well the outcome of the war was the capture of key strategic towns including the main stronghold,Kismayu port which was used as a gateway for illegal money and corrupt businesses (charcoal), thus denying the entire EA community the peace to do proper biz. Kismayu port actually financed the Elshabab,but they have now gone into hiding,after AMISOM took over their key facilities;The main airport,radio stations,the goverment house etc.In short they lost all their controls.

Mogadishu is at the moment going through a clean up exercise,to rid it of explosives left behind by running terrorists.
Thereafter, the transition should begin, with the somalia forces working hand in hand with AMISOM left behind to carry on. It's a complex and delicate exercise.
Lets hope that peace reigns.
