Eritrean involvement in Ethiopian political condition has been received suspicious look by some Ethiopians. Nevertheless, there are millions of Ethiopians on the other side who believe that Eritrea is the only place at this particular time could serve as a shelter to Ethiopian oppositions. Obviously, Eritreans are the only people who could stand with their Ethiopian brothers against the ruthless and savage group of TPLF gangs.
Virtually, nothing makes the TPLF tribal chiefs irritated more than the brotherhood of Ethiopians and Eritreans, as their strong bond would devalue the poisonous divide and rule agenda and accelerates their downfall. Consequently, TPLF would do anything to remain on power and prevent the establishment of the union of Ethiopians and Eritreans. As we currently see, some self-centered irrational Ethiopians along with TPLF gangs are very busy disseminating groundless information against Eritreans and describing them as enemy of Ethiopians. But the truth is contrary and Ethiopians don’t have enemy than the TPLF gangs.
Ethiopians are murdered not by Shabia bullet, but by the barbaric TPLF Agazi militia. It’s not Eritreans but TPLF gangs who are turning Ethiopia to a living hell and force the citizens to live in unimaginable suffering and distress. Whether we like it or not there is no brutal and cruel enemy to Ethiopians more than the TPLF gangs. Ethiopians are being tortured everyday & dying with starvation, not because Eritreans makes our life difficult, but TPLF gangs deliberately relocate the country’s property to their village and use it to their lavish life style.
Moreover who undermined the Ethiopian nationalism as well as the country’s well reserved history? Who imprisoned, killed so many Ethiopians and deprive their humanity? Who is living endless luxury while millions of Ethiopians are having indescribable pain and misery? We can write so many other filthy crimes against humanity & the answer is not hidden from us unless we deliberately fixated with some kind of irrelevant foolish fiasco.
In fact, the TPLF apartheid rulers would try to use Eritrea as a pretext and wage war in order to divert the attention of citizens, nevertheless, this time would not be the same as the past. However, regardless of the TPLF attempt to create disharmony between Ethiopians and Eritreans, the Eritreans have already showing solidarity with their Ethiopians brother and sister and condemn the ruthless TPLF regime, which is very encouraging & should be supported by all of us.
As a result, on our side it should be a genuine Ethiopians duty to extend our solidarity with Eritreans in order to shorten TPLF gangs’ life by cutting their Achilles tendon. In fact, TPLF knows that Eritrea is the only place opposition groups could get a shelter and able to organize their power and able to attack against TPLF. So they would try anything to block this golden opportunity by fabricating unsubstantial news.
Because, history doesn’t cover the fact that TPLF gangs had been raised and fed by Shabia. Therefore, irrespective of some naïve & childish Ethiopians who are making nonsense noise about Shabia, the truth is there is no one better than Eritreans who knows the weak as well as the strong side of TPLF. Therefore, the steps taken by some gallant Ethiopian opposition group to approach Eritrean and have them as a tactical friend to bring down the TPLF gangsters seems very smart and well designed, since the creator knows better than the created.
Unfortunately, some inactive Ethiopian opposition and their naïve followers are misguided and trapped with outdated propaganda and making illogical loud noise from their comfort sofa against Eritrean government. They don’t show any other alternatives except using insult and name calling to intermediate courageous Ethiopians that are paying the highest sacrifice on the battle ground in favor of freedom and justice. But I’m sure their attempt would be futile as long as we remain strong and expose their empty debacle in every possible path.
The truth is no one is close to Ethiopians than the Eritreans, and vice versa. So our bond will be very important for our mutual development and the survival of both countries. Plus, we Ethiopians and Eritreans are the same people and prefer to live with harmony and brotherhood, but because of some lunatic interest group we are forced exercising hate and bigotry toward each other, which is very sad and heartbroken. Nevertheless that is already becoming history and we both identified there is no worst and archenemy to like the TPLF gangs, so it would be unwise for both people to disregard this obvious truth and spend our time fighting each other.
I am sure after the TPLF era both countries would be able to live with peaceful coexistence including established common market, dual citizenship, using the port for both and citizens of both countries be able to establish business in anywhere inside both countries with any limitation and also travel without an pass or travel document in both countries. I think both Ethiopians and Eritreans have clearly recognized their enemy and hopeful their future approach and relationship would be genuine.
Recently, we Ethiopians have proofed that Eritreans are doing their part to have our trust and establish previous broken relationship. So it would be unwise for some gullible Ethiopians who are driven by emotion to reach to the conclusion based on past experience and block every possible opportunity to work with Eritreans. Truthfully, we cannot hide the fact that Ethiopia remained land locked not because of Eritreans, but the savage action of our previous dictators in particular Derg led by mass murderer Mengistu H/Mariam towards Eritreans and the treacherous conspiracy of TPLF tribal warlords.
Anyway, now animosity towards both Ethiopians and Eritreans based on what happened in the past makes the condition more difficult and complicated, instead of repairing the broken relationship. So our last resort should be to work together on things that benefit both countries. And I’m sure Eritreans are not naïve as some credulous Ethiopians describe them to keep us landlocked as they know that our success is their success and vice versa. Ethiopians on the other hand should convince that strong and sustainable Eritrea is beneficial to both people.
Therefore, freedom lover Ethiopians should honor those who support our cause and stand beside us in our difficult time. Without doubt there is no one better than the Eritrean government who deserves our honor for supporting our struggle and giving our patriots a shelter. Unfortunately, some irresponsible self-interested Ethiopians and under cover TPLF gangs are trying hard to divert our attention and accuse Shabia as enemy of Ethiopia. However, the truth is contrary to their claim and TPLF is the one who is practicing apartheid rule in Ethiopia by killing and terrorizing our people. Therefore, we should invest our energy to eliminate this typhoid before it eradicates us.
