The Government’s sixth monthly performance report presented to Parliament
The Prime Minister also noted that Ethiopia had the legitimate right to defend its sovereignty from any damage by Eritrea, and he emphasized that it was well prepared to respond proportionally to any further attacks by Eritrea. Any action, he said, would be taken carefully and after full consideration as was deemed necessary. The Prime Minister also expressed Ethiopia’s willingness to resolve its differences with Eritrea in bilateral round table discussions or in the presence of a third party whenever Eritrea showed willing We can only hope next time the premier sits down with local journalist, the journalist will ask him again to clarify what he means by "further attacks"? ene yemilew!, why is the Ethiopian government afraid to deal with the one man government in Eritrea with the only language he understands? Isaias Afeworki has no desire to talk with PM Meles and his government, he has said that for long time! The world knows the one man government is anti peace! Is it farfetched if one concludes the reason the horn region is in turmoil due to Isaias Afeworki intransigence is because Ethiopia is failing to take decisive action and lead by example? What all the neighboring countries hear is the Ethiopian government repeated call for talk with Isaias Afeworki! Who can blame them to be cautious if mighty Ethiopia appears to be shy dealing with him despite what he has been doing against Ethiopians and the country's interest

An Empty Bowl for the Cash
Thirsty Extreme Diaspora!!
A meeting called by the extreme Diaspora held in Atlanta Georgia on February 4, 2012 failed to reach its goal.
According to reliable sources, the meeting which was cash thirsty returned with an empty bowl.In fact, there was more expense than income thereby spelling the organizers to fetch their purses to settle the balance. The number of attendees was very low(Aigaforum has a video clip at hand sent by one of our reader to verify the number!) beyond the expected and anticipated figure. This moment signifies the dwindling nature of the politics harbored by the extreme Diaspora which is solely anchored on sheer hatred and jingoism which is indicative of the poverty of ideas aired by the cash thirsty extreme Diaspora elements who have made the silent majority a cash cow until last Saturday when the response was an unambiguous, "No More Pension Money"!!

The future of the Nile River still hangs in the balance, but at least a team of experts are committed to evaluating the potential impact of Ethiopia’s Grand Renaissance Dam. The politics surrounding Ethiopia’s Grand Millennium Renaissance Dam changes only slightly more frequently than the project’s name, and we are excited to bring you one of the most positive updates since the saga began. Ethiopia has being posturing against Egypt’s historical monopoly of the Nile river’s waters for months, even though the country lacks the funds to see a potentially environmentally destructive 5,250MW dam to completion without help. Naysayers may be betting on lack of funds to stop the Renaissance dam but it is to no avail. The Ethiopian people have assumed ownership on this project and we all know what a determined people can do and achieve. We the Diaspora can have a lot to say on this too! Let us get involved!
