Majority of Eriterian population are youth that are under 30. These means they have no idea about the country that is found south of their border as by the time of independance they were either not yet born or they were childeren who were under 10. Shabia present modern Ethiopia as Tigiray to these youth. Day in day out they speak of Wayane and the youth in Eriteria begun to see a nation that is called Wayane that occupies the country south of their border. Shabia created for its military an enemy that is very small, poor and starving while it present to them Eriteria as being the super power of Africa and a nation that is fully capable of taking care of its needs. Eriteria is presented to the public as self sufficient country who need no body's help. Because the public have no access to information it got no choice but belive what it is toled. Even when Eriterians are killed Shabia tells them Ethiopians are killed by 100 folds.
The unfortunate nation is blind folded and led to death and destruction. They have no idea that their own government is at war with the whole world. It spend the little the nation got in sponsoring losing causes of Alshabab, OLF, ONLF and many other Lfs. It magnify small development and present to the public as the only great project ever carried on in the whole of dam World. This reminded me of Plato's "allegory of the cave"
Immagine this. There are people who lived almost all their lives in a cave. A dark cave where there is no sun light at all. Also immagine there is a fire wall that is located behind this people and their shadow is reflecting infront of them. They look their own shadow day in and day out. If some one by chance is forced out of this cave and dragged to the upper world for sure he may not stand the sun light but as he get used to it, he will start seeing the plants, the people, the animal and stars and the sun. He will be inlighted. If this person is forced to back to the under ground cave ofcourse he will tell the people in the cave what he saw. Because what he saw and what they know is very much contradicting these people may decied to kill the man.
The life of our brothers and sisters are life in a cave. The only thing they know is their own shadow. They are denied to go out and see or hear how others are. They are prepared to confront any possible enemy as blind as possible. Because they do not know how strong the other side is and how wealthy the other side is they will go into a fire with great number and die.
Ethiopia is great nation with population of 80 million and with economy that is 100% stronger. Ethiopia is a country that is welrespected becasue of its fighting culture. Ethiopia is the only country that was not colonized and the colonized know why. Ethiopia is not Tigiray alone. Ethiopia is not Wayane. We Ethiopians are about 80 Ethnic groups and we speak many many language. We come in different packge. Our culture is built on respecting others. In our langages "respect" does not mean "fear". The colonized who live in fear all their lives can not distinguish between the two. Because we respected them and gave value to their lives they thought we feared them. Enough is enough it is time to teach Shabia what a heck " respect" and " fear" are. They must understand it well and we must teach them the very lessen we thought the invading Italian army.
May God bless Ethiopia!
