Ever since the one man government of Eritrea became the high priest in Eritrea and started its Ayatollah style diplomacy and governing in Eritrea , it has been a trouble maker in the Horn region. It has gone to war with all its neighbors. After its crippling defeat by Ethiopia it has been forced to change its posturing. Instead of direct war it has opted for a proxy war and has been producing all kinds of mercenaries to destabilize its neighbors especially Ethiopia.
Kudos to the Ethiopian security forces and intelligence officers that have curtailed the actions of mercenaries. Ethiopia has been proactive and at numerous times has apprehended them before they did damage to destabilize the country. Regrettably, in some instances these mercenaries have succeeded and have caused mayhem. The question we want to ask is why are some of our people becoming messengers of Shaieba? Is it because Ethiopia’s constitution and its government has failed to accommodate people to live and exercise their right or is it simply greed and lush for money? If poverty is the cause then how do you solve such issues given the fight against poverty takes long time? Instead of running around the bush and putting blame on the messengers wouldn’t it be far more practical to address the top? The top in this case is the one man government of Eritrea who is arming and training mercenaries. And what do you think about the many documentaries ETV has aired regarding the mercenaries? Do you feel you have heard enough? Are those documentaries helping or upsetting you? Do you feel the one man regime has been getting away for far too long? What alternative solution could you provide? Have Your say!
