    It obvious that the Americans and Ethiopia need a scapegoat for their failed actions in the region.
    The Adis abbaba regime that come in power with full support of the Eritreans is able to succeed  in convincing some puppets in the region. sad to see kenya who seem to be more open minded join this evil actions unknowingly.

      Brown! Blame it on Eritrea’s leadership arrogance and dictatorship. Before you blame Ethipia or Kenya first ask yourself, what are Eritrean leadears doing to slove peoples problems and develop the Nation? Why is there exodus from Eritrea? Why is there no opposition voice in Eritrea? Who is ruining Eritrea? Who are friends of Eritrean leadership?

        This has nothing to do with the internal problems of the country, which I might add are a direct result of the external problems it faces.The Eritrean people and its governement are working diligently to bring themselves up from poverty, chaos and despair after 30 some odd years of war and hostilities. All they want is to be left alone to build their country by their own sweat, blood and tears. Far away from the preying hands of imperialists, neocolonalist, and the IMF and World Bank. Is this too much to ask for? Like all developing nations, Eritrea has its fair share of economic migrants and people who feel like its greener on the other side of the pasture. As for the opposition, there in Ethiopia, taking shots of Black Label with the likes of Meles and his gang. The people of Eritrea do not want them or care to entertain these traitors. As for friends, let me borrow from the USA’s playbook, and say countries do not have friends, only interests. And the Eritrean government’s interest is safeguarding the country and its people.

          Afwerki is ruining the great country Eritrea.It is a revenge.He spent his life in Nakfa but after he came to power ,they( you know them.right?) start calling him the “AGAME”.and they are paying for it now.

            Shame on you, president Afworki is building the nation together with his people.No Eritrean calls PRESIDENT ISSAYAS  “AGAME” because he is not from Agame area.
            For  correction if don’t know Agame, it is a district in Tegray region so it is not an insult to be Agame, but he is not.

        Those are questions you should ask yourself. There is enough literature and alternate media to give you some relevant facts. You only need to identify, compare and contrast them before parroting what you heard from the mainstream media.
        To borrow a phrase from the famous Black American civil rights leader martin Luther king  Jr “Nothing in the world is more dangerous than sincere ignorance and conscientious stupidity”

        Please try to open your mind and  see the truth from your honest judgement. Eritrean leadership tought us to be free from hand outs which come from previous colonialists and present neocolonialists who are doing their best to let us remain under their mercy for ever and expoit our resources. Regarding exodus
        it is political campaign done by the west. For your surprise Eritrean remains Eritrean where ever he or she is. I invite you to visit Eritrea and see the development done with internal capacity and devotion.

      Brown keep on blaming USA and Ethiopian, rather than  getting rid of your tyrant insane president which is the cause of your people death in the desert of Sinai and thousands living in a refugee camps.

    This latest sanctions will only increase the resolve and vigilance of Eriterians, because it is a repeat of the multiple injustice’s committed by Africa’s colonial masters and their African stooges who ignored Eritrea’s legitimate struggle for independence. It does nothing to bring peace to Somalia because continued turmoil in Somalia is in the best interest of the IGAD despots who want to keep the cash flowing in the name of terrorism. It also helps Ethiopia to delay the eminent liberation and return of the oil, gas and mineral rich ogaden region to Somalia (if it becomes whole again.) it also does nothing to bring stability to Ethiopia or the horn of Africa in general, because continued turmoil in the region will benefit and fit right in to the misguided and misinformed united states horn Africa policy and again benefit the despotic IGAD leaders who are only interested in the stability of their despotic leadership and their bank accounts in foreign banks. Once again african leaders are selling their soul to their colonial masters, this time via videotape and tele confrances for all the world to see. What a shame.

        Dear 2009
        Where were you when your God Fathers were selling their soul and making a fool of themselves in front of the whole world via video link & teleconference? Why don’t you give your evidence to the UNSC and the Kenyan media so they can add it to the laughable story of the phantom Eritrean plane which delivered arms to Somalia? Is this how evidence is developed and confirmed in Mekele or Addis Abeba under the minority genocidal regime?
        It seems to me you are trying to be more Christian than the pope in a typical HASSAD or BUDA Woyane style. If you know anything about Somalia or the horn of Africa, the Al-Shabaab is born as a direct result of the 2006 invasion of and subsequent atrocities committed by the army of the minority genocidal regime of Ethiopia. Please Quit your envy about Eritrea, Find a remedy for your crab mentality  and continue to milk the Al-Shabaab gravy train with your IGAD Despots.

    this article is very interesting specially for africans who really want to inspire by the eritrean achivement of a free and really independent nation unlike other nations who live their life on western hand out. this sanction is nothing to do with alleged accusation but it is the way how to pull dawn eritrea to level with other begares nation for thier existance.

      Dear Elias what can an African country learn from Eritrea may be leaving their country in search of basic human right which is deprived by dictator Isayas Afeworki, may be they will learn to live in poverty one bread per day policy, may be converting universities to military training centers and students to soldiers, or   living in fear of detention…. do you know in Eritrea there are more detention centers than schools….

    We all know there are many internal problems and challenges in the entire region, however, when it comes to this particular sanction against Eritrea it is simply unfair. Why? because it is crafted by enemy Ethiopia and US for Eritrea’s failure to obey US directions that help only for its own interest.  The rest of the IGAD countries probably they are naive or they do not know that they are doing.

    Not Fair on eritreans. gutted by the stupid decision made by UN over Eritreans. u went and killed Gudaffi, sadam and toppled many governments. why not Eritrea? why do we have to pay the price on behalf of few idiot politicans.   

  6. Avatar emmilove December 9th, 2011 at 11:23 pm

    people know rain comes from the skies. Africans know good policy only comes from the west.
    why not this time from Africa?  here Eritrea comes with a new policy self reliance the best solution for Africans lasting problem but the west doesn’t want Africans to open their eyes and see that policy. they are doing their best to kill it before you have it.bob marly said it! don’t let them school you. you get your own mind. they always want you to live in confusion to never settle down and think to create things to boost your life. they always drive you crazy and keep you busy by dropping just a certain issue and let you move around it for years and years keep you worrying and spending for it. let us see at HIV/aids,Darfur ,etc think about it and now Somalia. believe me my African brothers the issue is not about Somalia. it is a game to attack the emerging Eritrean policy and keep Africans killing,blaming one another and never become competitors and independent. my African brothers i am an Eritrean but i always think about big Africa not only about a single Eritrea for i truly believe our unity is our strength. we shouldn’t behave this way against each other. we should love and care for each other and make Africa a better place.thank you. God bless Africa.
