Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed discussion with Disable Veterans Tigrai - April 2018
Every time I watched our disabled brothers and sisters and watch or listen to the likes of Kassa Kebede and other little mercenaries from the west who are trying to belittle the sacrifice made and the constitutional order of the country, I cringe and my blood boils with anger! I pray PM Abiy Ahmed government will not be fooled by these elements! The end will not be good if the Cohn's and Kebede's are let in PM Abiy! Stay away from these elements! Zeru Hagos April 18, 2018

It's not just the US that's freaking out about China's ZTE Earlier this week, we talked about the US ban on ZTE, and what it may mean to both the Chinese smartphone maker and Google. At the time, I said that the US seems to be the only country in the world calling ZTE a national security threat and that the sanctions against the Chinese company may be just one other installment in the US vs. China trade war that we’re currently witnessing.Knowing how much Ethiopia is dependent on ZTE technology authorities should be well informed and prepared to mitigate the effect if the international community pushes the sanction against ZTE!

Knowing our near past experience....

The Demise of Ginbot 7: Rest in Peace (R.I.P.) Strathink Editorial Team - April 2018 - Last week’s historic transition resulted in the fulfillment of Ginbot 7’s stated mission, which is the realization of a national political system in which government power and political authority is assumed through a peaceful and democratic process based on the free will and choice of citizens of the country.The leaders of Ginbot 7 should now understand that raising an army, no matter how small, and attempting to make change through the barrel of a gun will not work in Ethiopia.

Alibis for trumping on sovereignty Bereket Gebru 04-19-18 -I miss the old days when sovereignty, territorial integrity, and non-interference in the internal affairs of states meant something. Those were the good days when state actors were treated as equals in the international system. Those were the days of straight talk and action; everyone knew the intent behind everyone else’s actions.

The Ethiopian government must not forget developing local talents and local capacity to manage and develop big projects is a national interest! Developing such capacity will go a long way to sustain growth and improve the livelihood of the people. We understand the challenges are huge but taking the shortcut to building mega projects with foreign companies ignoring the development of local capacity is a sure way to becoming a banana republic. METEC was not created because it was the bastion of talents and know-how gurus. It was created to develop local capacity. If it has failed to develop talents fix the bottlenecks but PM Abiy, you should not be hoodwinked by party politics and destroy the only seed that may help the country to become self-sustained in managing and developing mega projects! PM Abiy, it is a public secret who likes METEC and who does not! Destroying METEC is not in the best interest of Ethiopia!

They associate it with white supremacy, the newly restrictive immigration policies of many Western countries, the resurgence of economic protectionism, or the illiberal populism of U.S. President Donald Trump. But nationalism also has a positive side. National identities can encourage ...
