Qatari Forces Deployed On The Eritrean-Djibouti Border

Gedab News,(June 2, 2010): Qatari mediators brokered an agreement between the Djiboutian and the Eritrean governments after months of shuttle diplomacy. Qatar has deployed its forces on the border between the two countries starting late Tuesday night...

Comment  Although we are not sure of the veracity of the above news or the extent of the Qatar involvement, we are not surprised by Aite Isaias Afeworki's behavior of capitulating on the 11th hour! If you remember Isaias accepted the Badme cease fire and the Algiers agreement on the 11th hour! With a tightening sanction by the World body Isaias may have decided to use his time tested method to live another day!.
It will be interesting to know Ethiopia's reaction to Qatar's presence on its door step given the Nile Politics of the day and the fact that Ethiopia has severed its diplomatic ties with Qatar a year or so ago!

President Tsegay is one among the few senior leaders who will be taking different assignment come next September! The president listed many of the accomplishments of his party over the years and disagreed with the notion that the people voted for TPLF simply because the opposition was not better or �unknown angel�!

Is this true Dr Beyene?!

[Our reader wants to know...]-
Is it true Prof. Beyene Petros did not vote at all and therefore did not vote for himself in the recent election? Did these so-called oppostion even have the minimum amount of decency and seriousness that a competing candidates is supposed to have? How can a man ask another man "vote for me" when he himself is not even committing to himself? The least any candidate is entitled to is to his own vote. Or was the good Prof also intimidated by the ruling party not to vote for himself on an election day?..[from our email folder]
