Naked Eritrean Regime: Hiding in Public Square! Zeru Hagos Dec 20, 2011-
The emperor in Eritrea is a naked emperor, yet he is unaware of his nakedness. A lot of things have changed with the Eritrean one man regime-Isaias Afeworki since he telegrammed to Bill Clinton to save him and his regime at the 11th hour before it collapse by the heroic Ethiopian Defence Forces pounding.
Then, unlike today, the running dogs of Isaias Afeworki, facing a certain defeat of their “ warsay yikalo” forces were telling the BBC and other media outlets that they know how to survive in the barren mountains of Nacfa and their retreat was no defeat...Today the one man regime spokesperson is telling VOA Amharic,
(click to listen) that the US was the reason Ethiopia was saved from the imminent collapse due to the one man regime military capabilities and strength. Ah! Entay emo yigeber(what can one do!). Shaibya has taken the saying “loosing is winning” to another level!
