For the love of Eritrea and Eritrea only
Leaving the political sophistry, jargons and clichés aside, the main driving force of the Eritrean experience is our love for Eritrea and Eritrea only. It's in our blood and is part of our genetic makeup. It's like the air we breathe in to live. It helps us keep moving - focused and centered and always Eritrea on our minds.
The pride and glory, honor and dignity, respect and identity that come with it can't be expressed by mere words and words alone. It's like a spiritual awakening and a highest form of political consciousness, enlightenment and empowerment combined in one and comes loaded with national duties, responsibilities and obligations. It helps us lead a life full of meaning and purpose and defines us - who we are as a people and a nation.
The power of our love for our glorious nation can be measured by the amount of blood, sweat and tears shed and martyrdom and sacrifices paid to reach the Eritrean Promised Land. Every square meter of the sacred land of ours has a history of heroism, courage and bravery and gallantry written all over it. As a result of it, we are able to build a solid foundation of Eritrean nationalism which can't be shaken under any circumstance.
We are not far from the truth if we conclude that there are no comparisons to it in the annals of world history. Where in a world history can we find were martyrdom and paying the ultimate sacrifice were divine and a national obligation, paying the ultimate sacrifice for your comrades safety and to stay alive and fight another day were routine acts of bravery, wounded fighters demand to leave the field hospitals before finishing their treatment regimen to join their comrades fighting in the frontlines, were digging you own grave was routine practice before the battles which gave no breathing space to speak of and the burning desire to join the combatants in the front lines were the assignment of choice of all the fighters without exception.
From time to time, we are accustomed to hearing utterances of bravado, "zeraf zeraf" and beating of hollow war drums of the brutal, murderous and genocidal Tribal Junta ruling Ethiopia. As usual, they are cries for help and signs and symptoms of desperation and hopelessness.
They know perfectly well that there is lethal fighting force always ready and willing to teach them a lesson whenever they demanded it. They know Shaebia is the one that created them and surely is the one that is going to take them out. Eritreans don't want war for they know its destructive nature, but the Tribal Junta is allergic to peace and war, conflict and discord are its tickets for its survival.
The Eritrean history of struggle is the history of heroes/heroines, bravery, gallantry, perseverance, self-sacrifice and martyrdom and not of wet-pants, cowards, sell outs, traitors and whiners. War or no war, Eritreans are always ready for any eventuality.
If history is going to be our guide, we can boldly say, in no uncertain terms, that if it was difficult yesterday to make the Eritreans kneel down, it's impossible and never going to happen today.
Bereket Simon, the Tribal Junta's propaganda tsar and his staff of East German Stasi trained Ex-Derg cadres, are in the habit of bringing some emotional issues or trial balloons with different traction potential and half-lives to the front burner using a media blitz to dis/mis orient the Eritrean and Ethiopian peoples. Sadly, like a dog running after a bone, we are following suit and being used, abused and manipulated by their cheap political ploys. We have to refrain from acting like a pack of wolves attacking a prey.
This doesn't mean that we have to let our guards down. For as PIA said during the Tribal Junta's aggression against Eritrea that the dream of the Tribal Junta is the destruction of Eritrea and the annihilation of the Eritrean race from the face of the Earth. Ethnic Apartheid and Article 39 which had been used to divide and rule Ethiopia is now used to destroy Eritrea using the services of the stinking political corpses of the Eritrean treason mafia.
Etitreans and Ethiopians should focus like a laser beam on the primary issues of our time. For the Eritreans, it's the building the Eritrea of our dreams and worthy of our martyrs' sacrifices and for the Ethiopians it's the removal of the brutal Tribal Junta from the helm of power in Ethiopia and surgically remove its metastasizing political cancer from the Ethiopian body politic.
Thanks to the wisdom, sophistication, experience, gusto and guts made of steel of the Eritrean leadership we were never distracted and kept hostage by the political machinations and shenanigans of our enemies, detractors and traitors. Their desire to keep Eritrea always on a war footing and be a sacrificial lamb for the survival of their so called alley Ethiopia never materialized and were just exercises in futility.
Sadly, it can't be said the same in regards to the Ethiopian political dynamics. Ethiopians are victims of the Tribal Junta’s political ploys. The ethnic politics and the politics of hate and mistrust seem to divide Ethiopians as never before. Ethiopian unity currently is at its lowest ebb. Ethiopians should come out of their present state of political malaise and unite and start fighting to save Ethiopia -the delusions, denials and national mental instability has gone far enough.
Eritreans and Ethiopians should think outside the box. We have a common enemy in the brutal and inhumane Tribal Junta at the Meneik Palace. The time has come when Eritreans and Ethiopians have to coordinate their activities to facilitate the demise of the Tribal Junta and discard its medieval politics into the dustbin of history. PIA said that the political dynamics in present day Ethiopia is unsustainable and it can't go on like this for long. The sooner the Tribal Junta is no more, the better for the peoples of Eritrea, Ethiopia and the Horn of Africa.
