Assenna Finally making sense now. Thank you from bringing Amb. Abdela back.
This is the time Eritrea & Eritreans should stay out of the business of Ethiopia’s internal affairs. If people in Ethiopia are suffering then it is always right to be voice of such people but taking sides will tarnish anyone’s stand.
Listen to around 14 minutes in to this discussion – It shows this Ambasador is absolutely seasoned and fair. How cleverly deflecting Mr Ammanue’s question and redirected it to what is needed now. Followed by giving his advice to Dr Abiy on how it should have been done. Eritrea needs men like this Ambassador. Amb Abdela digresses with his regret and disgust of war. I do not know the role of this Ambassador during post liberation but I feel very happy for making himself free be first taking ownership and then following up with his advice. Then Mr Abassador followed up around 49 minutes in to the discussion another advice to Mr Ammanuel to stir clear of such warmongering. Working impartial and sending what is the intent of Mr Isayas rather would be the best way to handle this. Assenna, I am sure I have followed your site and activities for years now, so I say stay focus on the meaning and purpose of your mission. Single out anyone that has done wrong to Eritrea or inflicted a pain to Eritrea but hands off from taking any part in this war. This war in Ethiopia is not putting the lives of Eritreans at risk.However the lives in Ethiopia should also be considered for Eritreans have gone through pain and misery not long ago.
Way back, early in the making of Dr Abiy, I had said Dr Abiy was still in honeymoon. Then Abiy continued his extended honeymoon with the wrong scamp Mr Isayas. I am sure Dr Abiy is dying for Mr Isayas to intervene and press from North. This would be a wrong calculation. Although I am not here to say it might not happen tat Eritrea might not do some incursion but this war within Ethiopia is dangerous and risky for Eritrea to take any part.Hope the sources from some “eye witness” that some Eritreans military are seen inside Ethiopia. Make no mistake, this war in Ethiopia is not to end simply by one side giving up. I just hope some cool heads come in to terms. Poorly placed “pride” could be the start of a long misery in Ethiopia and Eritrea. As much as I have many stories of pain from the war of Ethio-Eritrea I have to stop and think that war is not right and these two countries are in many ways closely related than many other places.
Some Eritreans could be drawling to see a mess in Ethiopia and have Ethiopia split up, but then the result would be destructive and will weaken everyone in the horn. This reason of seeing Ethiopia in a mess and split up, if any, is not how we should bring peace and democracy in Eritrea. If we need democracy in Eritrea we need to fight our own fight. In fact regardless of the stand, justified or not, of any sections/sector in Ethiopia, Eritreans should take example how to stand against tyrant leaders in Eritrea.
Well I will have to stop here. TBC. Assenna thank you for bringing Ambassador Abdela and his reasoning to stay focus on the road to bringing democracy to Eritrea rather. Too stay hands off from taking sides.
I might be wrong with the following statement:
I am deeply disturbed and confused on the fact that you are using your venue to press that we need to take sides as people. Unless I am mistaken your questions seem to imply that we should take sides. Thanks to the Ambassador’s wise and pointed response to the questions to re-direct Mr Ammanuel back to what we need to do as Eritreans. There is no question, Eritrea, like neighboring countries, will be impacted. However, this is the time Eritrea needs to take the higher ground. I agree if Eritreans are at risk and perhaps have higher stake but implying any Eritrean should take side or steps is dangerous and unwise. Eritreans have put enough young souls to free Eritrea and just because we have leaders who are self serving , Mr Isayas and his other groupies, makes no sense to take sides. Both elements in Ethiopia have placed Eritreans under unforgettable agony and taking any sides makes any Eritrean lucking facts and knowledge. Let us not just jump at every incident just because. Put your efforts and our efforts on how to remove Mr Isayas and his team out.
Here are some of refreshers: All well intended but misguided and lucking some reasoning.
1: Free Eritrea back in 1991 – almost every Eritrean blindly believed a one man show. Almost like worshiping a man like next to God. Then many are living to regret it. Mr Isayas moved from “God like” to “devil like” by many
2: War of the 1998 – almost every Eritrean did their part and were blindly fighting for tragic war. Again many did not stop and think.
3: Several “fake-news” flashes regarding Mr Isayas and state of Eritrea imminent collapse and all of us had jumped in to a wagon and acted like a person with temporary herbal-highs.
4: When Hanish Island was on fire many failed ot see Mr Isayas and his cronies were losing an Island of Eritrean. Rightly so.
5: Peace with Ethiopia, recent event, people were simply jumping not knowing why and what…
So my friends in Assenna and any other Eritrean please stay calm and focus on what Eritrea needs to do to bring change.

SIMPLE, PERFECT and PENETRATING QUESTION >>>> to sensitive reader, that is!!!
I am AFRAID that continuous servitude under various ‘colonial powers’ for many decades has hypnotized us to the level of servitude. It is just like the legendary wife complaining about the interuption of punishment that she was receiving from her husband!!!!!!! I am deeply sorry that our situation dragged me to that psychological phenomenon. But then, how else can ONE describe OUR STRANGE BEHAVIOUR — especially after paying horrendous sacrifice in thirty (30) year war for supposed to be FREE ERITREA. WE FAILED. Psychologically, it ha a clear meaning. THE END
