"However, one significant problem I see in most of the comments has to do with competence, for such comments are mostly written by laymen with limited legal training or no training in international law at all. Even though some of the commentators are experts in different fields, these types of issues on international rivers non-navigational use or in general require specialized knowledge. Thus, my first advice to such commentators is to be less vociferous and also less dogmatic and learn from people who have the training and experience in the field..."More
Tecola Hagos nicely cutting to size the vociferous commentators and "know it all" experts in Diaspora!. I love Tecola for his cunning way of telling the truth eventhough I do not always agree with him in many ways at all! .... It is amazing to read and hear some of the very same so called know it all personalites saying the dam will not be built that it is a political ploy and then switch to the dam will cause war if it is built and now telling us about the Dam will be built but...type argument. No wonder Tecola is admonishing them to stick to what they are trained and educated for before making fools of themselves!

VOA speaks to Wedi Gerahtu about the report of Human Rights Inquiry

(Good Interview Minya! ) - It is really pity the once gallant freedom fighters of Eritrea have turned to be such harsh on their own people? What do they think they were dying for when they were fighting tooth to nail from the dissolute Sahel foxholes if not for their people who are dying all over the Sinai desert? Something has really gone wrong with the psyche of Eritreans! Can independence be so intoxicating? How could the Ambassador think the proud people of Eritrea will taint their own country image they died for ? Eritrea is virtually a pariah state where millions of its people are abandoning the place they grow up and dearly fought for! "Kubo Debriyom Ela Yihadmu Alewu" Ambassador! Look inwards and save you country and save the region!)

Alem Habtu, New York February 25, 2015 - I regret that I am not able to make this presentation in person due to health issues.

My discussion will, therefore....[A Must Read!]

[Ethiopia should proactively thwart any future trouble to any Ethiopian migrants/refuges living in Yemeni before things turn for the worst. Ethiopia's mission in Yemen should double their effort to reach those that will be affected by the civil war developing. The conditions are ripe for Isaias Afeworki to jump in- South Sudan civil war and now Yemeni civil war sponsored by Iran are very good opportunities for him to cause havoc in the neighborhood now that Al shebab is almost a spent force!]
