The Wall that Ethiopia Had Carefully Erected Against Eritrea Has Crumbled

Eritrea is coming in from the cold. Could that spark a shooting war with Ethiopia?

Humiliating. Wider winds in the region are blowing in Eritrea’s favor that effectively crumbling Ethiopia’s 17 years old strategy of containment.

BY TOM GARDNER | FOREIGN POLICY

Two recent and seemingly incongruous events may one day be seen as symbolic turning points for Eritrea, a one-party state often referred to as Africa’s hermit kingdom. The first was a bloody clash on Eritrea’s border with Ethiopia in June 2016, which left hundreds of people dead and brought back memories of the devastating 1998-2000 war between the two archenemies.

Ethiopia’s No-Peace-No-War Strategy Against Eritrea Backfired

Breaking Bad: What Ethiopia tried to inflict upon the people and government of Eritrea is happening to itself

By Amanuel Biedemariam,

In May of 2000, Ethiopia waged the most destructive war of aggression against the people of Eritrea. After the war failed to accomplish Ethiopia’s goals of re-colonizing Eritrea by force or, place a puppet government, Ethiopia was forced to pen the Algiers Agreement in 2002 that laid the foundation to determine the final binding decision based on The Hague Courts ruling which ultimately decided the disputed border in favor of Eritrea.

At first, Ethiopian authorities applauded the decision. The then Foreign Minister Seyoum Mesfin lied, “All disputed areas have been given to Ethiopia,” and falsely claimed that the international tribunal at The Hague has decided that Badme, Zelambessa, Ayiga, Erobe, Alitena, Bada and others to be part of the Ethiopian sovereign territory.

We May Forgive but Never Forget

Ethiopia’s unconditional withdrawal from sovereign Eritrean territory, including Badme is the recipe to peace in the region

By Bereket Kidane,

With the passage of time, the minority regime in Ethiopia and its lackeys are hoping amnesia will set-in among the Eritrean population. They are hoping that the Eritrean people will somehow forget the fact that sovereign Eritrean territories continue to be illegally occupied today.

They are hoping that the passage of time will soften the desire to demarcate the blood-soaked international line between Eritrea and Ethiopia.

They are even hoping that the good-natured Eritrean people, who are often viewed as being naive and magnanimous by their southern neighbors [Ethiopia], will forget the reprehensible and inhumane way the TPLF regime conducted itself during the 1998-2000 war: Continue reading We May Forgive but Never Forget
