One Question Not Asked In 4 Months:
How many young #Ethiopia|ns & #Eritrea|ns enlisted or conscripted in the ENDF, ASF, TDF, EDF have been killed in the stupid war? Until we ask, and insist on an answer, the war will not stop. #HowManyDied?
If are comforted by the lullabies of your side (whichever side you are on),remember the 98-00 #Eritrea-#Ethiopia “border war” was 24 months of standstill interrupted by 1 month (cumulative) of battle. 100,00 young lives perished then! The current war is 4 months of non-stop war.

It’s #FatuousFriday: just back from Planet NNNN, with its alternative facts, and I am here to share with my compats. Since everything Isaias touches turns to ashes, the promising political career of @AbiyAhmedAli is facing the abyss too. But, hey: war is peace and peace is war
More “War Is Peace, Peace Is War”: According to the “Abiy Is Our Leader #Eritrea Is Our Country”mob from #Ethiopia, joined by Isaiaists, when 🇺🇸 and EU call for end to war, it is warmongering!
Short @AbiyAhmedAli: We defeated #TPLF (june tah) completely & #Eritrea is in #Ethiopia only because we are at war with TPLF whom we have defeated completely 4 month ago. Mayyybe our soldiers & Isaias did a little raping here and there but TPLF ATTACKED NORTHERN COMMAND!
(2) #Eritrea|ns have made a very strong argument as to why they cannot withdraw from sovereign #Ethiopia|n territories, because they fear being attacked by #TPLF (who I have totally annihilated) and I must say I find their arguments compelling. The war is to catch 12 people.
Looking at the #Ethiopia|n War in Tigray & the ensuing carnage--death, dismemberment, displacement--& #Eritrea|s "self-defense" foray, there is not much to be optimistic about, but there could be if we act as Citizens of the Horn
The Horn of #Africa has no citizens, just subjects.
Citizens are free and, collectively, own sovereignty. They hire and fire their leaders.
Subjects are powerless, looking up to The Sovereign, who demands total obedience. Dissent results in disappearance, death, exile.

Mesfin Hagos (founding member of the Eritrean People’s Liberation Front (#EPLF) in the 1970s who served as Minister of Defense in the 1990s), the most authoritative voice on #Eritrea|n military affairs, reveals the extent of #Eritrean involvement in the #Ethiopia|n war.
(2/18) In an address to his country’s parliament on November 30, 2020, #Ethiopia’s Prime Minister confirmed #Eritrea|n support to his ongoing war against the Tigray People’s Liberation Front (#TPLF), the regional government of the northern regional state of Tigray...

(1/10) This is a report card on #Eritrea Prez Isaias Afwerki considered by himself & NNNN as a political architect of the Horn of Africa. From #Somalia, #Sudan, #SouthSudan, #Djibouti, to #Ethiopia, he has wasted #Eritrean treasury grooming satellite orgs. All for nothing.
(2/10) #SouthSudan: The #SPLA had members who were for secession & members for reforming Sudan and remaining part of it. Despite Isaias Afwerki's cries, the secessionist won and they proved it in a referendum where 99% voted for independence. Isaias didn't attend the ceremony.
