  1. so happy for us!

  2. let them play catch-up because they never seem to learn. Our wise forefathers have said it succinctly when they said..''BETRI HAKI TIKETIN IMBER AITISBERN IYA..''Lies no matter how often you repeat them will never amount to anything but lies. You cannot lecture the world on democracy whilst disregarding it so blatantly.

  3. All this sums up to hard work, dedication, never kneeldown and independent thinking of the eritrean leadership and people. VIVA Eritrea.
