Eritrean Maligned Policy!
Tsehaye Debalkew, Washington DC, March 23, 2016
The provocative and belligerent acts of the infantile and one man regime of Eritrea whose broad daylight acts of terrorism, brigandage, aggrandizement and wanton destruction, both internally and externally speaks volumes, and testify, of its never changing behavior.
The satanic and wicked measures of vandalism corroborated in no uncertain terms by its actions of handling the Eritrean people particularly the youth, it's shameful and perfidious act of destabilization in the horn region and beyond, flagrantly championed by the hooligan leadership in Asmara has indeed become the whole mark of the immature regime of the recluse state of Eritrea.
The UN Security Council which is aware of the perfidious deeds of the regime in Asmara had earlier, declared its verdict by imposing crippling sanctions on the rogue regime. The despicable and notorious thugs, however, have brazenly and blatantly exhibited contemptible posture by extending the regimes iron fist directed at that country's youth, who have become an easy prey of the regime's GESTAPO, human traffickers and international terrorism.
In a futile bid the military junta in Asmara has amassed that country's youth as national service conscripts for an indefinite period of time in the hills and valleys of the country. This scheme is a smoke-screen to hide its blatantly fragile stance. It demonstrably stands as an apt corroboration of its lawlessness. The Eritrean regime it should be noted has been pushing the Horn Region, and far and near countries to the brink of conflagration with the ugly scenario that could spell doom and gloom in the neighborhood .According to a report of the Somalia-Eritrea Monitoring Group, an appalled UN Security Council was quick to learn in no ambiguous terms that Eritrea's relationship with Al-Queda, which has become its natural ally and partner, appeared designed to legitimize and embolden the terrorist group which functions in cahoots and in sync with the lawless regime of Eritrea.
It is an open secret that, Africa and indeed the international community after having patiently tried all diplomatic and peaceful means to advice Eritrea to stop its unwarranted meddling, intervention, provocation, open hostilities, arrogance, prevarication and out-right contempt to international, continental and regional organizations and the rule of law, finally passed a series of resolutions to the effect that the destabilizing acts of Eritrea should be halted and all necessary measures be effected to deter such manifestations prompting the UN Security Council to react accordingly in the not too distant past.
It is against this stark backdrop that the Ethiopian government after having tailored a new Eritrean policy to effectively thwart all acts aimed at destabilization and other related terrorist moves against its people and the current multi-faceted development ventures that it has resolutely anchored on, took a legitimate, timely and instructive measure of quashing the reckless acts of the lawless regime which through its evil measures disdainfully attempts to create a situation of quagmire and regional destabilization.
Small wonder, despite the UN Security Council sanctions, yet due to the out-flow of refugees to some European countries, the European Union with the explicit belief that it could dry up the source of refugees, has instead acted to appease the Eritrean regime by extending a 320 Million Dollars. Another factor that should be added to the recent emboldening posture of the Eritrean regime is its diplomatic gains with some Arab countries to lease the port of Assab.
The timely heroic measure taken by the gallant Ethiopian forces has eliminated and wiped out the hubs of havoc and strife which were recently instrumental in the merciless massacre, apprehending and taking as hostages of Ethiopian nationals by terrorists trained, supported and buoyed by none other than the culprit, ie. The hooligans in Asmara is an irrevocable response to the mannequin acts which shall effectively subdue the evil attempts of Issayas and his orchestra to foment strife and polarization in Ethiopia.
Eritrea is one of the most militarized nations, vis-à-vis its miniature budget and scanty population, has literally halted all and sundry attempts to allocate any budget towards the much needed alleviation of the dire economic destitution that it badly craves for.
Partly the money it purportedly gets through illegal laundering, black market combined with direct financial contributions from the uncontested ruling party supporters and the imposition of a Diaspora tax, an illicit and illegal measure unheard of in international norm and practice is used to finance the training, arming and sponsoring recalcitrant and splinter groups like the nefarious G-7 and to beef up financially strewn media outlets like ESAT, which are primarily used as weapons to hoodwink the people of Ethiopia through the creation fictitious stories and hearsays. It is appropriate to consider, however, a change of approach by Ethiopia as pertains Eritrea. That is why, the East African group of countries, and the AU the UN Security Council are ardently wielding the stick to send the message that Eritrea needs to desist and refrain from its evil acts of destabilizing the region by abetting, supporting and harboring international terrorists, regional extremist cohorts and fringe Diaspora extremist elements.
