PM Meles Zenawi Press conference on current events
"News" we ignored last Week!
Bire, (you know the girgir one) and Tame were in town(North Carolina) and unlike prior years "denfata" they both told their audience (12+2) that their struggle will not bear fruit unless they welcome Tigreans in to the fold. They told their room full crowd(12+2 people) that Tigreans are divided in two camps and that they should alienate the Woyane camp while embracing the Siye/Gebru" camp.
What is the 12+2 you said, well ,the two were Woyane supporters who went there for curiosity sake.
While Bire and Tame were shuttling in North America huffing and puffing, the legal opposition in side the country remained silent for most part perhaps they realized the dynamics! But....but do not tell this to the few extremists who are dying hard to seek attention. These few have been trying to instigate something but not even Aigaforum could see them as worthy adversary that could derail the peace of our people back home let alone the Ethiopian government! Thus they are left to continue to bark...not even the proverbial dog bark but a cyber bark! [Aigaforum March 11, 2011]
