Tensions persist over disputed Eritrea-Ethiopia border
ADDIS ABABA, Ethiopia: Isayas Gabriel was there as tens of thousands of fellow soldiers were cut down during Ethiopia's last war with Eritrea, a 2 1/2 year bloodbath over a seemingly insignificant border town called Badme.
Seven years after the war's official end, he is watching as the countries appear to be gearing up for Round 2.
An international commission charged with marking out the border essentially threw up its hands recently and ended its work with no formal demarcation, evidence of how stubbornly both sides have resisted mediation. The Brussels-based International Crisis Group said last month that the threat of war is "very real," and "just weeks away." An estimated 225,000 troops face off across a tense buffer zone.
Meles go for it please. I know your are confident this time. Just go for it and everything will settle in due time.
I am watching you in close range enjoying my vodka while betting on who gona be victorious.
Look the Ethiopian handsome boy stood behind the shabia killer gun ready to kill Shabia.
Victory as always ours. Yeha
It’s gonna be a second round knockout.
Eritrea is finished.It’s like a keserech sharmuta.
Isayas (the Ethiopian soldier quoted in the article) and Abdi are wrong. Both think the war will bring down the other side. I wanna tell them that if the war starts its’ end can not be predicted. The only thing that can be predicted is the down fall of TPLF and EPLF. That certainly is no victory to the PLFs. But it will be a victory to the two peoples, Eritreans and Ethiopian alike.

No war will break out in the Name of
Jesus.The desire of the Devil never
come true .No blood will be shade.
God is in control.
stop wasting time and lets get rid of Issa-ASS. our problem can only be fixed when the mafias in ASMARA are eliminated… Peace well only be there the day Issa-ASS is MURDER and his thugs are buried alive in the caves using the air force. GET RID of this lebas…
War seems unlikely, If Eritrea had the military might it could launch an attack to take the land which was given to it by the border commission. The key town of Badime is still in the hands of Ethiopia. Asmara could start the war, the only problem they have now is clear. They just don have the military power to deal with Ethiopia. They seemed to have lernt a lesson from the past war. Now they know it clearly, another war..thats it. Asmara regime will be ousted and that will be Ethiopia’s aim. Those of you who doubt in the military might and leadership of the EPRDF could continue to daydream. The CUD may expect Shaebiya to come to Addis Ababa and hand them power, but its not going to happen. Its the reverse, Shaebiya will be ousted for good. Shaebiya is now engaged in a cold war like propaganda game. Its accusing Ethiopia of making preparation to invade Eritrea. This is rubbish, Shaebiya is using the situation to collect money from the dispora in the name of “Hagerawi Mekete” national defence.
Do not dare, you can not survive with outBig Boss Isayas!
I wonder, why most weyanes are worshpers of Ertreans.
Personaly speaking, It is 100% better tobe with out weyane reggardless of Shabian’s wish to divid Ethiopia. at least there is a point “we never be the same ” any way!.
this is the season of giving I wont to
hear the holiday hustel and bustle.
rather than focusing on ethio-ertra
war.happy holiday to all ethiopian and
“Repeat a lie a million times it might end up to pass for the truth” This is the game of many media outlets.
There is no disputed border between the two countries. There is a legal settlement which neither country can escape from. The decision is ‘Final and binding’ we both signed to it. Now it is true that it is not demarcated using pillars, but not only is it deleneated but there are also coordinates for the pillars, when Ethiopia will stop its obstructionism.
As for war, we Eritreans are fed-up of war we have never advocated it nor seeked it. However we now from history that the only way to win peace is to be ready for war. And I think no Ethiopian who knows his/her history will accuse us of cowardice. We never give up our right to peaceful existence and we will exert it at any cost. If Ethiopian leaders will not fathom that History will keep repeating itself.
Make it happen
Meles knows he can not fight with Eritrea, he knows what happened in last war. Eritrean army are preparing to kick the Tigray Weyane a**s within several days, even don’t need to much prepare for minorities gangster. It is ready 60,000 Eritrean army for 200,000 Weyane army. Also if the war start the main goal will be to remove the Tigray region from the Eritrean border and bring Gonder or Gojam to be neighbor of Eritrea.
just withdraw from bademe and everything can go back to normal
There is a United Nation code that prohabits a member Nation to occupy a soveriegn of other State land illegaly, so one way the other the thugs will be slabed and lick thier useless mountain rocks in Tigray.
there no tension that we ethipians know of . what we know is that no war no peace is our super policy & it is working.
Just go out from Badime and there will not be war. It is not worth loosing 70,000 innocent people again.
I wish to see the day we see a farmer with a big tractor instead of the one what we see now on the picture the soldier with the big artillery bought with huge foreign currency after considerable pounds of coffee and tea has been sold.
No more blood bathing between these two close cousins. Please stop it!!
Please let us all say, if at we have to fight, we fight only with poverty, nobody else is our enemy.
Ethiopia does not need to get into war with anybody. If this government cannot manage to bring peace and is only interested in war with neighbors it should leave the power to intelligent people who can bring peace and prosperity.
If some insisted they want war; they should enlist themselves in the military to go and dye in fighting with Eritrea.
But don’t force those who do not believe in the war to go and dye for Woyane.
War with Eritrea is only Woyane’s issue because of its grudges. Shabia, Issays or Eritrea is no longer Ethiopia’s problems. We have no grudges to grind.
Recently I have been noticing nazret.com to block comments that have no indecency but are against Meles or the government. I found even most of the news to be not worthy.
In my view it has become the roaming field for those ignorant TPLF and Woyane supporters.
This will be my last comment to post because I reject the notion of being dictated by this site and I am moving to other sites where there is more true and worthy news with a leveled field for all kinds of comments. Like, ethioforum.org, ethiomedia.com, abugida.com and so on.
We have enough with Woyane’s dictatorships and I do not need this kind of backwardness.
no we are not going to withdraw from badme the only way we are going to withdraw from badem is we eritrea give retrun asseb to ethiopia. till then we are staying there forever.
as far as the wor goes ethiopoia will not go to wor unless the shaiby invade our country. meles to smart he knows shabia is doing a absolutly good job distroying eritrea. for the past 10 years shaibia has taken eritrean youth into slavery in the name of national service. they country has turned into one big prison. no one ethopian leader has done what shaibia is doing to eritreans. now knowing this why would meles go to wor with eritrea? he should just sit back and watch shaibi totaly distroy eritrea.
THERE IS NO NEED TO GO TO WOR SHAIBIA IS DOING A REMARKABLE JOB.
