Eritrea - Small but pugnacious


Eritrea - Small but pugnacious

Eritrea might be tiny, but it is currently squaring up to much larger neighbour Ethiopia - and more or less everyone else

Little guys typically make up in aggressiveness what they lack in size - and tiny Eritrea, the Horn of Africa's plucky bantam, is no exception.

The Red Sea nation of 5 million people is currently engaged in verbal fisticuffs with the UN, the US government, and its giant neighbour, Ethiopia (population 77 million). As they say in boxing, it is ducking and weaving like a good 'un.

The problem with this latest David and Goliath act by Eritrea's mercurial president, Isaias Afwerki, is that even the smallest miscalculation could bring disaster.

Stupid, Stupid people, stupid people. Petty, petty people. petty people. - a wise man after experiencing fools

These have got to be the most stupid leaders on the Earth fighting over a dirt rock. So many countries have undemarked borders and have no war. What is ethiopian- somalian border? No one knows!!! I can speak for reasonable Ethiopians by saying how much we do not need another war over ego. The leaders live in their villas and are feed well to the extent they want to start talking shit. This is ridiculous and ethiopia/eritrea have to much to lose. How do you go from sleeping in the same bed to wanting to kill each other. Woyane/shabia must stop the madness.

Ethiopians have you noticed that Egypt is your biggest enemy and it will be the winner of all of Ethiopia’s wars foreign and domestic. So please dont have any false ego and let our people support the acceptance of these “final and binding” Algiers agreements.
