Latest Update from Copenhagen
Zenawi's star dimming fast, African leaders upset with him.
Meles, Endewetah Yasikerih!
OBAMA IS GETTING IT.MELES IS THE SMARTEST LEADER IN AFRICA IF U LIKE IT OR NOT.
Obama is wise in convincing the counter parts to accept his proposal for the Copehagen conference.
After the conference, let us wait and see what the relationship would look like.
This mischief tyrant is trying to get attention from the collective of other Africans leaders.He is trying to cover up his misdeeds in Ethiopia. What ever he does is for false reasons.He is focusing in financial gain not in humanity.He is fraudulent in his motives– he wants the world not to see his human rights abuses and his bad governance over the Ethiopian people.
Long live meles
Meles is a good man and a great man.
The problem for the president is that Africans new that this woyane dictator is the western stooge planted to sabotage the strong African negotiating positions and already sidelined him and are not going to listen to him.He doesn’t have what it takes to represent one country let alone reperesenting Africa.This is too technical for woyane mind
Mr.President, please stay true to your words. There is nothing to be admired about a narcissist dictator who imprisons, tortures, and murders his political opponents.
that is cosmetic appreciation because that animal is unfortunately indispensable to fruition of the summit.
tsion, kkkkkkkkkkk motku
Dear Melesovich Supporters and A-kissers, This is a lesson for you to learn from, how to play politics. Obama is playing melesovich.
ANBESSAW MELES proves it again. For those of you…haters…swallow it…
Don’t blame Obama. blame African dictators for selecting this professional panhandler from the horn to represent them. Obama has to follow the rule of the protocol wether he liked or not.
We never got a chance to see a leader
like Meles in Ethiopia. It does not
mean he is perfect sence there is not
perfection in leadership.If you are not
below 30 years old think about Mengistu
and Hailesilase. We did not have
opposion party any type of free press
except government media.It is better to
see our past and contribute some thing for
our country to improve democracy in
From the view point of moral, Africa has no leader that fit to moral standards. His Majesty is dead and Madiba is frail. Intellectually, I am happy to be represented by Meles Zenawi.Look the other choices : Mugabe, Mubarek, Odinga…ugh.

Unconsciously you are saying Obama is playing a game then what is the big deal or the lesson from this kind of evil game against the interestes of the international community and the environment. Are you still not aware of the environmental concern being addressed at Copenhagen, DOMA RAS.
Tsionye - teragamy nesh ! Your life & death is in the hands of your thongue ! Atisadeby , tessadabeewoch bemilasachew erasachaewun yikesifalu !
If we again starts to respond for the woyanne stooges means again it is like going low in the global political arena .President obama knows who zenawi really is in this
particular case the blame goes to the rest of African dictators for
sending this dedebit criminal as representative of africans.As for president Obama it is very normal
to give for some cosmetic and for others serious appreciation to suceed on his climate change program and it seems he knows it well that it can be the easiest task to do as
long as the envoys name is zenawi
with no interest of Africa Ethiopia Climate or what ever if you throw him some ferfari for his and his comrades account and a temporary feeling of immunity from his everyday
nightmare of icc and den hague.It is like giving him a space to enjoy breathing fresh air (Do you remember how he was trying to have a picture with president obama by the g7 meeting it was like a baby looking
for milch from his mothers breast)
The person zenawi for me is a toy
who does not exist in the real world
Very smart of Obama to deal with these two who made an outrageous demands prior to the meetings. Bangladesh is demanding that its entire population be settled in Europe or America. Bangladesh has the worst population per land ratio: 150 million people crammed on an often-flooded space the size of Montana. They blame the floods on climate change thus the developed countries. And we all know what Meles is up to as ring leader. Obama has heard an earful of the bad news ahead of the meetings that the meeting would most likely be a failure.
