Weed Out the PFDJ Beast

As I was about to publish this edition of Negarit, I was hit by yet another news of a tragedy: a few hours ago Mathew Price of BBC reported that today (Friday Oct. 11, 2013) another boat with more than 200 people capsized 60 miles off the coast of Lampedusa. …

The United Kingdom Should Prove Isaias Afwerki Right

There is a saying in the Eritrean highlands when one observes that the effort exerted is vastly disproportionate to the puny outcome: “nezi ktg’Eta trhtSa?”—all of your sweating is for this?  We had the exact same reaction after we read the Eritrean Ministry of Foreign Affairs June 7th  Press Release …

Win, Lose Or Draw? ICG Always Says “Draw”

Consequently, the ICG reports were always famous for their string of non sequiturs. Their conclusions could never be supported by the premise.

So, whereas the government supporters are questioning the premise (without going to the details or bothering to present counter arguments), the real problem with the ICG report is, as always, its conclusions. Or, to paraphrase, Dr Ghidewon, it is really a case of Full Monty In, Half Assed Out. I won’t even bother with the acronym for that.

Philsophical Enklil Part 2: Mystifying The Obvious

After filtering out the background noise of YG articles, what we are left with is just simply intellectual stuttering. This stuttering of YG has been going on for far too long with utter disregard to fact, truth, or decency. Day in and day out he has made a mockery of everything Eritrea and what Eritreans aspire for. It is shamelessly driven to prove a philosophical point that cannot withstand the smell test let alone a thorough analysis. Yet he goes on to stutter endlessly.
