Ethiopia: Dispelling the Curse of the Nile.
War has been avoided. As Yemen becomes the latest battleground in what future historians might call the Middle East's "World War",...[The so called experts should somehow show humility and accept defeat and say sorry about the future water war they told us about!

NAIROBI: The recent attack where more than 150 lives were cut short by Al-Shabaab bullets, has evoked anger among Kenyans. This have triggered numerous debates, drawing parallels between Kenya and Ethiopia in the war against terrorism....[Of course Kenya cannot and will not be Ethiopia! How could it be? Ethiopia is a fiercely independent country that will not sleep happily when invaded or transgressed by any one let alone a terrorist next door! The article miss out the main point why Ethiopia so far has fended such atrocity from happening in her land. 1) It is a quick learner and it has involved the public to be part of the effort to stop terrorism and 2) Ethiopia does have a system where everyone is hopeful and is ready to see a better tomorrow thus denying a fertile ground for terrorist want to be! If you call this "Socialism" so be it...[from a reader...his logic is that ‘there is no terror attack in Ethiopia because there is no ‘democracy’, ‘multiparty system’, the opposition is not treated with dignity’ etc., etc. Is he implying that ‘if these factors were in place, there would have been terrorist attacks in Ethiopia? What a bizarre and twisted thinking!.]
