Wars are Decided on Land and not in the Air

Drs. Tsegezab Gebregergis, London, 19, 2014

In response to my article, someone who is ignorant about the nature of war and whether or not it is decided in the air or on land has uttered defeatist views by saying that he does not think Eritrea has any competent pilots or a functioning MIG29 left to speak of to confront the TPLF armed forces. Similarly, another person has also tried in vain to give the false impression that I am writing to defend the Eritrean government, and to promote hatred against the TPLF government and war between Eritrea and Ethiopia. This person is so foolish that he is not even capable of reading what is written on the wall, and does not appear to understand the difference between the oppressed Eritrean people and the PFDJ government, or that I always speak and write for and on behalf of the former and not the latter.
Let me now explain why I say so.

In my article, I have unambiguously stated that ‘War is a Double-Edged Sword’. It has a devastating effect on you if you start it, and it has equally devastating consequences if others start it against you. Accordingly, I have advocated that democrats must stringently oppose war in all its manifestations.

For the record, I strongly disagree with what Drs. Tsegezab's claim that the Eritrean people are 'oppressed', and that the Government of Eritrea is a 'clique'. I don't think these innacurate descriptions are helpful to anyone aside for the enemy down south.

Lloyd Lipsett, a Canadian Human Rights Lawyer who visited Eritrea on two occasions, made it clear that although Eritrea is a one party state, the Eritrean people are not oppressed and are not fearful of their government.

"As I mentioned, I have read many of these reports before going to Eritrea, and I expected to see more overt oppression as you see in other one party states, and I didn't see that. And the people who i've spoken to, both formally and informally, did not observe the traits of people who were fearful." - Lloyd Lipsett, June 5th, 2014


That said, it's nice to see even longtime critics of the Eritrean government come out and condemn the Ethiopian regime for its belligerent stance towards Eritrea. Most Eritreans, including the Eritrean government, are not against these types of opposition members.

The renegade camp of the Eritrean opposition is waving Ethiopian flags hoping that Ethiopia would invade Ethiopia and remove the Eritrean regime. Such betrayal, treachery and treason  has shocked many in the nationalist opposition. Many are raising their voices and condemning these traitors.
Meskerem will present some of the comments made by the renegade camp:
The human rights poster boy of Canadian media, a war monger calling for the youth to take advantage of an Ethiopian invasion to flee. An embedded advocate of youth flight.
Daniel Awshek... a human rights activist?

“Do not think EDF is living up to its name defending Eritrea and its people, it is useless institution lead by rapists, criminals and greedy bastards. Until the institution EDF is changed fundamentally and made to stand for the people instead of the dictator, the name it holds is useless without the factual defence it stands for. The little brothers has got a chance to escape and should be given a chance to do so is my advice to whoever decides to wage war."

Renegade Eritreans salvate because Hailemariam threatens to invade Eritrea? ( Daniel G Mikael EYSC FB)

08/11/2014 The often mentioned fallacy is that somehow Ethiopia’s interest can be intertwined with the interest of the Eritrean people.

The truth of the matter is, over the past [...]

Refugees in Calais, FranceShe has trekked 7,000 miles across two continents and now has just 20 miles to go to reach her goal, writes Patrick Hill in the Sunday People.

Desperate Aleena, 23, fled a grim existence in east Africa’s Eritrea in the hope of a new life in Britain.

It has taken her two years to reach a squalid camp in Calais along with her husband.

During a perilous journey across the Sahara desert she gave birth to her one-year-old son and is now seven months’ pregnant with her second.

She will stop at nothing to make a 20-mile illegal crossing of the Channel so she can give birth in an NHS hospital in England.

Addis applies pressure on Asmara
Ethiopian military high command gathered a meeting of Eritrean opponents to push them into being more active against Eritrean President Issayas Afeworki.
General Mohamed-Nur Yunus known as Samora, the Ethiopian army general chief of staff and a member of the Tigrayan Muslim minority, convened a meeting of Eritrean opposition leaders at Mekele (Tigray Regional State) on 18 July. This is the first such meeting since 2005. It was led by retired General Mesfin Amare who heads both the Ethiopian foreign affairs ministry’s Liaison office for Eritrean matters and the Sana’a Forum. According to our sources, the meeting had a particularly important point on its agenda: ousting Eritrean President Issayas Afeworki.

The Ethiopian officers reproached the Eritrean opponents for lacking coordination and they firmly advised them to devise a coherent and realistic strategy to overthrow the Eritrean government. The Eritrean opposition’s eight armed factions, which have been in fruitless negotiations since 2009 to form a joint military front against Afeworki, were represented at the meeting. Namely, (bullets by meskerem)

I am against war but if they choose to play the game i think this will be the end of their being.

"The shepherd you belittle will impregnate you"
 Eritrean Proverb
"ዝነዓቕካዮ ጓሳ የጥንሰካ" ይብሉ ኣቦታት

When will they tell Ethiopia to stay out of Eritrea's internal affairs and condemn the threat of invasion of the motherland
When few misguided EYSNS youth show jubilation because Hailemariam Desalegn repeated the same threat of invading Eritrea to install a puppet regime or maybe annex Eritrea, there is silence from Medrek, EYSC and Bologna Forum. Although one would not expect other opposition stationed in Ethiopia to condemn Ethiopia's threat of invasion for obvious reasons, these esteemed organizations are expected to be vocal in condemning Ethiopia's current expansionist threats. This is the right time to stand with the Eritrean people and the EDF and show solidarity in the defense of the motherland.  When the renegade camp says Ethiopian solution to Eritrean problem, these and other nationalist opposition need to loudly say, Eritrean Solution to Eritrean Problems. Unless such a stance is taken before the Bologna Summit, those of us who looked up to them will feel betrayed as they will be betraying their own stand and slogan of Ethiopia Hands off Eritrean Affairs, Eritrean Solution to Eritrean Problems . How else will our people distinguish between the proponents of Eritrean Solution to Eritrean Problems from those who are calling for the invasion, bombing of their own people and their villages, towns and cities? Of course, they need also to tell Woyane that such an adventure would herald the end of Ethiopia as we know it and the beginning of the disintegration of Ethiopia. As an Eritrean proverb righty states, "The shepherd you belittle will impregnate you". 

Albania detains illegal Eritrean immigrants with suspected Ebola symptoms

TIRANA, Aug. 13 (Xinhua) -- Albanian police Tuesday detained some 40 illegal immigrants from Eritrea, five of whom have symptoms of the deadly Ebola haemorrhagic fever.

Local media said the illegal immigrants were arrested near the city of Vlore, in south Albania. The five who have suspected symptoms were taken to a local hospital for further tests.

There's no exact statistics of refugees coming from poor and war-torn African countries to Albania. Official data shows that in the first half of 2014, about 500 Eritrean and Somali immigrants were detained in Albania. Their destination is some of the Western European countries.

Sanctions, no-war-no-peace, anti-2% campaign, human trafficking and HGDF paralysis created the following :
  • According to  Human Development Index (HDI) Eritrea is one of the bottom five. The bottom five are all from Africa: Mozambique, Guinea, Burundi, Burkina Faso and Eritrea.
  • 3000 youth fleeing per month; 
  • Ethiopian refugee camps becoming an open market for human trafficking
  • Diaspora politics diverted from democratic struggle to youth flight, migration to Europe, asylum applications, no dancing rhetoric
  • Acute shortage of water and electricity in Eritrea
  • Governmental empty promises; refusal to accept the urgent need for change
  • Opposition decay..

Will Frankfurt and Bologna Summit fare better? Can the minds that come together in this two events propose a credible, objective and pragmatic national solution? Need to realize that Eritrea belongs to both opponents and supporters of the Eritrean government and that change can not be effected without the full support of those on the other side of the isle.
