One Country One People
By Gezaee Hailemichael
Foreign analysts are forecasting an imminent war between the two but one people of Ethiopia and Bahre-Negash. The bet now is who will start the first shooting? Some say Eritrea, others say Ethiopia. Are these people really friends of these the same people?
In 1998 -2000, these analysts were fueling the conflict between Ethiopia and Eritrea. They amplified the conflict from small scale to the highest scale that claimed about 100,000 people from both sides. No one really exactly know how many innocent people has perished for nothing in that bloody and meaningless war.
If the civic Ethiopian populace and Eritrean populous still allows such insane war to go on between our people, it would really mean we are making ourselves a duel for those who are keen to watch us killing each other for no purpose.
It is time for the people from both side to oppose any war. Enough is enough. Our people have been bleeding, lamenting, suffering ... for almost half a century now. When other people who have been at same level of living standard like us have propelled themselves to the highest level, we have been funding war for a half a century.
From the time I have known myself all what I know is war, killing, shooting, suffering, misery, famine, diseases, .... If one asks oneself the merit of all that war, nothing has been gained from it except an endless misery and misfortune for both brotherly people.
Now once again, there are people who are keen to watch when both sides kill each other for no reason except for the evil agenda and legacy of colonialism. The so called border which is consuming many lives all over the world has been designed by colonialism.
Many people are na´ve, they think colonialism is over, but the truth is colonialism is still alive. As long as Africa and the rest of the world works under colonial set up, people will continue to kill each other for a meaningless border they have created. The was no border in Africa before colonialism. And there was no war or famine in Africa before colonialism. All the evils in Africa are the aftermath of colonialism. The true name of Africa is Ethiopia. The name Africa itself is colonial. The Azanians in South Africa still believe the name Africa must be changed to Ethiopia. And the Atlantic Ocean must be given back its name the Ethiopian sea.
If Africa has to evolve itself, Africa must discover its roots and abandon the colonial political system. If Africa has to develop, its governors must be self-reliant. They must stop begging and relying on foreign aid. As one top USA official said it, no charity has ever been given to Africa except a short and long term strategic investment padding. This means any single penny given to Africa will be given back either doubled or tribled one way or the other although it is subtle for one to understand.
Ethiopian and Eritrean must stand together, no need for a Berlin wall. Berlin wall is gone, East Germany and West Germany are one and the same people.
No need for a border between Ethiopian and Eritrean people. What is the border for? Border only exists in people's mind, there has never been border in our history. What is the merit? Let us not waste time, lives, resources, energy,.... again. Let us forget the border.
Let us all co-exist in peace. Why must I die for a border made by Italy? Why do we need a commission in the Hague who can make for us a border? Why we do not have a commission of our own both sides? Why are all Europeans having the same currency, Euro? Why are Europeans enjoying travelling without visa? Is it because they are fighting over a border?
Meles and Issayas, if you are still keen to feed our people to cannon, we do not need you. We want visionary leaders who can bring unity to the people than division. We do not need colonial stooges. We do not need leaders with corrupted mentality and colonial mindset. Leaders who have colonial mindset are not leaders, but pure slaves who worse than the colonialist themselves.
NO WAR, NO BORDER, NO HAGUE COMMISSION, NO ALGER'S AGREEMENT, NO HR2003, ONE COUNTRY ONE PEOPLE, The GREAT NATION ETHIOPIA. COLONIAL STOOGES, AND CONFUSED REFUGEEES WHO KNOCK AT THE DOOR OF THE WHITE HOUSE MUST LEAVE ALONE ETHIOPIA.
LOVE , HARMONY, PEACE TO ETHIOPIA ICNLUDIGN ERITREA.
Divine Justice, Freedom and prosperity to Ethiopia
