Comment:  - It is known TPLF’s strength comes from its commitment to a popular cause and the strength of its collective leadership. Despite the late PM Meles’s extra ordinary organizational talent and his farsightedness TPLF would have not succeeded had it not relied on the people’s support. Despite here and there particular talent of some of its former leaders most if not all of the TPLF leaders as a person are no more different than the average TPLF member. Listening to Dr Aregawi and Gebru “looking back” analysis of the last 40 years of TPLF history,I wonder what would have happened if Meles and his group had not won the debate! Amazing, Gebru and Aregawi, have the audacity to come back after 40 years to tell us about Eritrea and sea access issue! Do they think the books on Eritrea were written yesterday after they left TPLF? Where were they when many Ethiopian political organizations and experts were debating the issue in the 1960’s? What is the use to raise the issue now except to bash the late PM Meles knowing he cannot defend?

This is cheap shot Dr Aregawi! "Meles ente koynu wala hanti Gurdi aytlagebon!" Eternal Glory to all our Martyrs!
