Ethiopia - Eritrea : Fear of War Increasing in Horn of Africa

ADDIS ABABA, Ethiopia (AP)
— Isayas Gabriel remembers when tens of thousands of his 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 among the many watching as the countries appear to be gearing up for Round 2 — a conflict that would have implications far beyond the Horn of Africa, which the West has long feared could become a safe haven for Islamic extremists.

Hellow Friends,
The two gangs, the blood thirsty nazi zenawi, and the dictator Isayas are fighting the war of forein powers those who have been the primary enemy of Ethiopia and Africa.
As long as zenawi is left in Addis the Horn of Africa can never live in peace. That blood thirsty beast muste go at any cost at any rate. He is the great cancer of the region.

Then americans could follow him and live africa in peace.

Thank you.

Alebabsew beyarsu, barem yemelesu.

First of all, what was done to the Ethiopian people in 1991 was the biggest crime of the 20th century. After puting up unbelievable suffering under Dergue, the west blindly supported these evil twins from Eritrea, and shoved them down the throats of Ethiopians. Repeated appeals, and complaints were brushed aside and rediculed. One crowned himself in Asmara, the other in Addis Abeba. They went on looting the nation for seven years, while pouring salt on the already wounded Ethiopian people. But as the saying goes, thieves do not fight when they steal, they fight when they divide what they stole. Thru it all, there were some within the so called Ethiopian government (true Tigrayans), who opposed what was going on. They were the ones who led the war against the hateful, barbaric, Hamassien pests, in 1998-2000. But all were thrown out of the government. What is left there now is the Eritrean left overs Wolde Selassie/ Meles gang. Therefore, my view on all of this. As long as these Eritreans are controlling the destiny of the Ethiopian people, war will not occur, go and sleep well. But that does not mean that will not be followed. in the long run, by the inevitable. Which is, the Ethiopian people will take their destiny back into their hands, and Eritrea will cease to exist. I assure you,an eye for an eye, a tooth for a tooth, the Yugoslavia they wished for Ethiopia will be delivered to their door step on a silver platter. The oppresion, and crimes done to the Ethiopian people have awakened them to their past greatness.

Ethiopia will watch Eritrea patient but unlike 1998… this time ET will unleash sever bombs on the heads of SHAEBIANS {in ASMARA and AWASSA} and level of the near by MTN for an easy burial of the ERI mafias along with the ONLF and UIC… There are nearly 500 Union of Islamic Court and the ONLF prepare have nearly 1,000 poor kids in training to return to Ogaden to rape children and blame the ET Military. However, ET is well aware of those plans by ERI and it will not stay asleep and let it’s ppl be terrorize by Iass-ASS from his CAVE.

Certainly, this is not a wrestling match and there will be many human life lost however if ET is forced to defend itself the message to the WORLD and ERI is clear. ET will destroy the ERI arm forces for good and take back our port ASSEB. Additionally, ET will not go to The Hague when it destroys ERI this time around nor would its military stop 35 miles outside ASMARA to SAVE ISSA-ass. His ass is going to pay for it this time around. We’re building peace and will not force anyone to go to war. If you ERI kids want to come and fight us you will be serve severely and your kids meat will become meal for all the hyenas out in the jungles. It will be our gift to you ERI. We’ll be very patient and the day you fire your 1st built at us you will come to realize how sorry you will be.

Eritrea is notpredominatly Muslim: it is more like 55% Christians and 45% Muslims, cimoared to 80% Christians and 15% Muslims in the rest of Ethiopia.
However, th issue is not of religion but of geostrategy: to control Africa Ethiopia must be weakened; that is the issue. Ethiopians must be able to face the challenge by first solving their political problem internally.

Let us for a moment look at what Bulch Demeksa has to say:

Bulcha Demeksa, an opposition parliamentarian in Ethiopia, said his country cannot fight in Somalia and Eritrea simultaneously.

“It is not just soldiers, it is everything,” he said. “Logistics, citizens’ support, young men’s commitment. We cannot do that.”

Mr. Parlamentarian always comments negatively on what Ethiopia is trying to do without offering alternative solution to the problem. To me Bulcha demeksa and his coleague, Merara Gudina, are nothing more than hecklers against the Government. Ethiopia is not about trying to make war, but protect its economic gains from the last 17 years of peace and stability in the country. Ethiopia has to defend itself (like it has done for mellinia) aginst its enemies. Eritrean stategy is to open war on 2 fronts, somalia and the northern border to make up for lack of strength. In war, like everything else, the victor is the one with the just cause. For Ethiopia turning the other cheek and run away is not an option. Can Bulcha tell us his alternative for lasting peace beyond his tacit support for OLF? Do not tell me Ethiopia has to just get out unilateraly from Somalia, or meet all of Eritrea’s demands on the Northern border.

Death to Weyane

It doesn’t matter what Eritrean people are Muslim or Christian, they are united! All they need are ‘to let this moron Ethiopians leave them alone!’. If Weyane wants war heroic Eritrean army and Eritrean jets are ready to kick some Tigrayan a**s and there will not be any Tigray region anymore. I don’t think Weyanes want war because they knows what is going to happen, shaebia can defeat them within days.

Aba tigist you are nothing but a racist woyane. if a woyane parliamentarian says that i know for sure you are not going to respond the way you comment on Bulich Demekisas view. for any country fighting a war in 2 3 front is hard economically and put a lot of strain in logistics too. you can ask some one who knows about it or read a book before you post your racial bias comment in this web to create more problem in already problematic country like Ethiopia or east Africa . wake up from your hate dream . oromos are Ethiopians too and they have right to say and wright about their country. your woyanes make a lot of mistake on there political decision in the past that is why we are fighting to exist in every corner. so if you want to blame some one blame TPLF:no:

It is true that War is not the option either for Eritreans or Ethiopians. However, it has to happen, Eritreans are ready to defeat the the War Mongers Meles Regime. I am sure uit will be the end of Meles. He know how Shabia fight and the defeat the Dergue regime. Shabia is not in hurry when they do things. But they do to winn. Meles please do not make any siucidal!!!!

You Seems TPLF thug.Are you saying that TPLF is planning to hit both Asmera/ Eritrea And Awassa/Ethiopia? Are you telling us Eritrean Militia in Awassa? And other things you are dreaming to consolidiate Asseb with Ethiopia? Is that how TPLF is thinking? If that was true what changed Meles mind? As far as we know Meles officially declared asseb blongs to eritrean not Ethiopian. Even in EEBC ruling meles neither opposed or questined asseb rather than Badme. Can you give us some more elaboration on your TPLF plan?

Thanks
