Eritrean Leaders Are Running Out Of Options – By Joe Michael

The most blatant and undeniable fact about the current Eritrea is how much its leaders failed their country. Every decision they have made, it has taken the country backward. As a result, Eritreans have less confidence on their political leaders today than what they have 20 years ago, while the leaders were sill in the bushes fighting for self-government.

In the late 1991, right after the Derg regime was removed; the EPRDF urged the Eritrean armed forces again and again to join the transitional government in Addis Ababa while the Eritrea fate was still to be decided by its people. However, Eritrean politicians rejected every call and stayed away from all the discussion stages. Once they have controlled Asmara, they didn’t want to be part of any meeting that speaks of consolidation. They isolated themselves from all negotiations and devoted for their own self-government. In fact, they came under scrutiny by the West for staying away and abandoning all dialogue stages before even Eritrea was officially recognized as a country.

While some Eritreans shored up for the idea of the rush to the self-government, some were misled and some were even forced to support. The group’s talking heads went door to door with their fictitious stories and told Eritreans how wealthy; prosperous they would be if they support the armed forces. They told Eritreans about the legend of the Phoenix mystical bird that was made of ashes and promised them that they will produce gold out of wood. Some walked around with virtual pictures of the future of Eritrea showing skyscrapers and villas and had swindled the people.

Years, in fact, decades passed by, but the promises have yet to come. Let alone the gold, wealth, and the skyscrapers, after 19 years of self-government Eritrea finds itself in deep crisis. Things are worst than before that its people have lost their fortitude and are not hoping any longer. They are rather craving to skip out of the country more than they wish to see the promises coming true.

Eritrean leaders emphasized for wars and conflicts to blame their failures. Thus, they have engaged in wars and conflicts with their neighbors; Sudan, Djibouti, Ethiopia, Yemen, etc. for no success.

Unfortunately, war itself is no longer an option as there is no neighbor country left to clash with. Therefore, the Eritrean leaders are running out of options and noticeably getting forced to face the crisis they have created to their own people.

    Well, the greatest problem began with faulty idea and bad vision which in return lead the preachers and the believers to having broken hearts and head aches.

    When bad idea and dark vision are inherited from the previous once to the once at present,life will continue to stink.

    Why is there an Eritrean with a nickname “Oromo”?
    Eritreans are so upset that Amhara love Tigray and Tigray love Oromo and Oromo love Afar and Afar love Somali and Somali love Gambella and Gambella love Adere and the rest!!

    This Eritrean mistakenly wrote with his “Oromo” nickname to cause ethnic problem with Ethiopians. The Eritreans want the Amhara and Tigray to fight while support the OLF and ONLF (Oromo and Ogaden).

    I am just so ashamed my people (both Eritreans and Ethopians) participate in such hateful and ignorant conversation!! I hope I live to see the day that Ethio_eritreans transcend their ethnocenteric politics and move beyond the blind, destructive, and extremely violent politics that has ruined our society for centuries!!!

    Eritreans are cool people it is the politicians that are self centered and stupid.

    I agree with the author that this whole thing was perpetrated just to make few individuals kings. As we can see, there is no other benfeit out of it.

    Thank you Joe Michael!

    Woyane belongs to tigrians shabia belongs to erterians both are the problem child of Ethiopia, Ethiopia cursed when these two ppl are became part of Ethiopia for more than hundred yrs. we are suffering because of both of u it is better establish a country called tigraye-tigregn other wise after freedom the genocide will take place not only against tigrians but also all tigrigna speaking people after that we will build a wall a chinse kind and we Ethiopians will live peacefully. There is an amharic saying “kezenjero konjo mene yemertalu” roughly means all monkeys are not beautiful u can’t find beautiful among herds of monkeys. Both of you are the big enemy of /Ethiopians/. When zenwi the beastes soldier massacred the children in add is ababa street in daylight both of you were dancing every where in tigrians in addis bar we will repay that sooner or letter

    It is really funny Mr, Writter,
    Do u know how many ppl r starved in Ethiopia? Do u know how many ppl r dying for freedom in Ethiopia? Tell me the differnt b/n Weyani leading gangsters and Shabya leading gangesters? They r same day hayna. Same family, same ugly face and corrupted and serial killers.
    Please, Dear Ertrian brothers take your tigran brother and let us alone Ethiopia.
    If Ertitians are not ethiopia, How can tigrians become Ethiopians?
    Death for Weyani and it supporters

    Say what ever you whant about Eriterian government, I agree ,,, They are the one for creating all problems to Ethiopian and Eriterian

  23. | #23

    Most of the replies are so trashy. All Ethiopian and Eriterian please talk someting thoughtfull. I think you guys are sick of negetive attitudes to each others. the world is now globalized and left us behind while we are still taking trash. No one is better than anybody, unless you work hard work. we are the most poorest nations in the world. War, war, war……. Please talk about econmy, business, health, democracy, equality, freedom of speech, and press. promote peace and stablity, instead of hate, and isolation. come on don’t be stupid. enough is enough. God bless you all.

    Thanks, Nutral it is about time to find on positive comment. I think everyone is hiding the problem we all are facing and try to convince who is better. the truth is non of us, that is why we all left our country. Just admit it and try to get along.
