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.

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.

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.

“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.

Peace.
Tesfa.

Death to Weyane

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.
