The Eritreans spend on avarage 8 hrs under the sunshine just for making a line to get one bread.Making a long que(line) is by itself a cruel stress which will burn all the calories they get from the carbohydrate in the bread.In addition to that Eritreans don`t eat meat because of the poverty.They usually rent a sheep for 3hrs/day during holidays and return it back to government immediately.They are not allowed to slaughter sheep.So, I can understand why they are NUMERO UNO.
Did you say assab to ethiopia? lol keep dreaming
Eritreans spend so much time talking about poverty in Ethiopia when ERITREA IS THE SKINNY COUNTRY IN THE WORLD WITH #1 Dictator
The 10 Countries with the Most Deaths From Natural Disasters,we are
number three.i don’t agree with this
number 100%. unles we are counting
human made Disasters the number is
lower than 415,837.
Sad to be Ethiopian. Shame on us.
Let’s be realistic here. Statistically, we both are at the bottom of the cellar and not far from each other! So stop nit picking and look down on each other.
“Eritreans usually rent a sheep for 3hrs/day during holidays and return it back to government immediately”
oh my day but come on guys be fair to eritrean, they are saving meat for the unknown future generation
These are the realities of so called Ethiopia for over one hundred years since its incorporated holding false name of Ethiopia by occupying others land and resources. Those habashas are proved how inefficient and backward they are. From this record one can easily understand about this miserable and shame nation.
Is it based on Weyannes Statics or where did you get this stupied thing?
why is it every thing has to be compared with eritrea? By the way come up with the Begger,Hoddam,and looters statistic next time.
I do not beleive you did that.
that was a cheap shot and unprofessional to edit some ones list.
I do not think you can change the fact that Assab is Eritrean by simply crossing the name.
You should have removed “Ethiopia” from the list of the “land locked” countries as well if you have to cross “Eritrea” and associate Ethiopia to Assab.
I thought you guys, at Nazret admins are cool and reasonable. But this particular silly act tells a volume about you.
I am not mad or offended about it, but the fact that one controls a website and can edit things to their liking bothers me and this kind of things happen on websites administered by people who have a minimum understanding of administering a blog/website. I hope you are bold enough to share my criticism and not block it.
Wahahaha, you Ethiopians are crazy how can Assab been Ethiopian and at the same time Ethiopia is landlocks.
really comparing Ethiopians with Eritrea unheard. Eritrea is yo much better then Ethiopia.
where is all the billons of help for Ethiopia.
Eritrea ppl are on the good way with our power and confident.
Ethiopia ppl can learen a lot from Eritreans, but first you need to stop your monster gvt of distroying your country.
General Wuchu [Visitor]
at tenefana nazret is not the one who wrote the article, and Assab Is Ethiopia and will always stay Ethiopian land looser, what do you think your thinny Eritrea doing with Assab?
The 10 Poorest Countries?
Ethiopians can see here that Eritrea is not on the top 10. You may ask yourself why is Ethiopia which live from handout, that get millions of dollars a year on the top 10 and Eritrea which is living by herself not on the top ten. hmmmmm wake up next door!!!!
PS: Asseb is Ethiopia and Ethiopia is landlocked. lol you guys are so dumb, damn if you want to deceive yourself then do it right man!
hey guys, we both are brothers. stop arguing that, be one and fight weyane!!
nazert.com you have no idea how proud you make us feel sometime. yes asseb belongs to Ethiopia.they majority of Ethiopians with you we love you keep doing what you doing. don’t worry about the so called eritrians they are so stupid and ignorant. every word that comes out of their mouth is hate for Ethiopia.let them bark all day.
you have just shown as that you are the true sons and daughters of Ethiopia.
And that’s why EPRDF is working hard to change the country and to improve peoples life….too bad most Ethiopians live by our past glory…..just face it, this is the reality of our country so let’s stop BADO FUKERA and work hard.
I was readng the Eritrian oposition site yesterday. My god, you people have got a big big problem in your mother land Eriteria. why are you terified of taking about Esaias.Why are More young people are running away from Eritria as refugees than ever before. Before you start talkng about Ethiopia, why don’t you clear up your own back garden. I am not Ethiopian, but i think you are in such a mess.
I see nothing there to be proud of. At least the Eritreans aren’t starving in the millions. The last famine they had was when mengustu burnt their land.
Ethiopians are still starving and dying.
what do you make of a land and sea that can’t sustain a population less than Addis ababa that it’s people are abandoning it in masses
imagine what would happen if the cult eritrean society whose entire young lives in a military camp was a normal society that could produce more population? God forbid
you make your criteria inflation, Most death rates, Poorest Countries, Least Consumers of Calorie……And calling it Top Ten Interesting things?…LOL…cool!
