What I attempted to do was to see if there is any way the Eritrean gov't and the Ethiopian opposition can collaborate in advancing their mutual interests, i.e., the removal of the Woyanne junta and bring peace to the region. By arresting two senior leaders of Tinsae Ethiopia, the Eritrean gov't has shown that it has no interest in establishing a mutually beneficial relationship with Ethiopians and demonstrated its contempt for genuine nationalist Ethiopians.
Elias, could you explain to us how denouncing Shaebia will get the two guys out of jail? And also if you do not mind, can you explain to us how denouncing Shaebia will move your struggle ahead? I found your move, rash and counterproductive, if you want my honest opinion. At a time when you want to minimize your enemy and maximize your friends, you seem to make just another unexpected move.
Really good luck, I still respect you. But I know I will never understand your moves. There is a lot of surprise here.
