Four Reasons Why Ethiopia Wont Go to War Against Eritrea

A lot of discussion has gone on in the cyberspace after Ethiopian Prime Minister Hailemariam Desalegn conducted an interview in which he warns that Ethiopia's policy has shifted towards Eritrea, and threatened his country is now determined to unseat Eritrean President Isaias Afwerki by force.

But as Fikrejesus Amahazion pointed out in a recent article, this new shift in policy isn't new at all. In March of 2011, while speaking to journalists at a press conference in Addis Ababa, the late Ethiopian dictator Meles Zenawi announced his 'new' shift in policy towards Eritrea, as well:

“We will work towards changing Eritrea's policies or its government. This could be done diplomatically, politically or through other means." He clearly implied war.

Eritreans know every few years or so, the belligerent regime in Addis Ababa beats the drums of war by making announcements claiming they have shifted their policy towards Eritrea. Since signing the Algiers Agreement in 2000, this predictable saber rattling has been a mainstay of Addis Ababa's policy towards Asmara.

In reality, however, Ethiopia's reckless policy has changed very little since signing the agreement. It's policy has been to train, arm and fund numerous terrorists groups to destabilize Eritrea, including al-Qaeda-linked groups such as the Eritrean Islamic Jihad Movement and the Red Sea Afar Democratic Organisation, the later being a purely Ethopian created terrorist group that seeks to give the Ethiopian regime access to Eritrea's Red Sea coast.

Ethiopia's latest bravado shouldn't be treated any differently than the usual saber rattling. After all, most of us know from experience that when a person warns someone they will fight them, that usually implies he or she doesn't want to fight at all. People who really want to harm someone wouldn't give the element of surprise away to their foes. Only the ones that desperately don't want to fight threaten others that they will fight. In poker, it's called bluffing. Among warring countries, it's called psychological warfare.

Since many people are giving their opinions on why Ethiopia will go to war with Eritrea, here are four reasons why Ethiopia wont go to war with Eritrea:

  1. Ethiopian forces are stretched thin. According to TheReporterEthiopia, a regime affiliated website, Ethiopia has deployed over 10,000 soldiers in various countries including 4,200 troops to the Abiye region of Sudan, 4,000 soldiers in Somalia, and thousands in South Darfur under the auspices of a UNAMID peacekeeping mission. This figure is not including the tens of thousands of Ethiopian soldiers permanently stationed in the Ogaden, and Southern Ethiopia due to rebel activities from Ogaden National Liberation Front and Oromo Liberation Front. So even if it wanted to, Ethiopia does not have (at present) the man power to sustain a war against Eritrea.

  2. Any invading military needs to pay its men to risk their lives to fight. Even Syrian jihadists, who profess they are fighting for their God, are being payed monthly wages by Saudi Arabia and Qatar to fight the Syrian regime. Unfortunately for Ethiopia, it does not have rich Gulf states to back their adventurism into Eritrea. Any war against Eritrea will have to come out of their aid budget from the West, which accounts for over 90% of the regime's annual budget. Adding to its financial woes, Ethiopia is also committed to spending 4.8 billion dollars on the Renaissance Dam's construction, which has been taking much of it's annual budget over the years, and leading to their soldiers not receiving wages for months on end.

  3. Ethiopia going to war with Eritrea will ultimately bring Egypt into the conflict to some degree. In fact, there are reports indicating Egypt is seeking a military defense pact with Eritrea. In the current Ethiopian-Egyptian tension over the controversial Renaissance Dam, the Egyptians are probably hoping the Ethiopian regime attacks Eritrea so they can use the attack as a pretext to deliver surgical airstrikes to destroy the dam and Ethiopian air force bases. 

  4. Ethiopian military is in bad shape, even by African standards. Over the last year alone, thousands of Ethiopian troops have defected to Eritrea, including five Ethiopian air force pilots. The Ethiopian military also lacks the discipline, skills or the will to wage war against Eritrea. Keep in mind, this is a demoralized Ethiopian military that's fresh off of a defeat in Somalia, in which one CNN anchorwoman described as, "Ethiopia left with their tails between their legs." This is also an Ethiopian military that can't even defeat rag-tag rebel groups such as the ONLF and OLF within its own border. So it's capacity to win a bloody, costly and protracted war against a larger and much formidable Eritrean military is out of the question.

    Let's be honest you bring the above from empty pocket to scare the Ethiopian regime but in the other hand you are given silver bullet to TPLF... what I mean is that will encourage Ethiopians to fight for TPLF :)

  4. You left out something very important in this equation. What if somebody gave ethiopia money to start a war?

    Look at ethiopias national debt before the border war, before the Somali invasion and you will notice how their national debt always gets lowered after the wars.

    The only reason why TPLF is dangerous is because everybody knows that they will do everything for power. I don't fear Tplf. I fear what America will order TPLF do from ethiopian soil to damage eritrea. Why else would they give ethiopia aid and cover all their expenses, if not for control?

  5. Every body knows that the recent "akaki zeraf" of the loud speaker hammam mariam is just a fear squeel! After all we do have a saying in tigrigna that goes something like 'ferah si aserte betru' , so let them holler & squeel all they want . We just need to be focused in our defence & QUITELY sketch a permanent solution to shut the goons once & FOR GOOD, I: e capture the entire tigray & it's the end of WOYANE with no supporters, they will run like adgi mariam in zimbabwe.

    They want to install a 'puppet' in asmara, we give them just THAT, but in their home! OR ...
    Lately the term assab & access ,bla bla bla is being thrown around loosely even by the so called oppositions from our land, SO i say we give them a few kilometers wide opening to the sea to add to their MAP & we ADD the entire TIGRAY to ours ,afterall that is what the AGAMES want (to be equall with eritreans) & problem is solved! But they can keep adwa, that is where all the trouble makers are bred!

  6. Nah, i diagree with you.

  10. Aye ajewjew!!! While the mafia group in Eritrea has been destroying our military capabilities including its manpower (Arresting brilliant pilots like Dejen, Habtetsion Hadgu...) the weyanne junta has been expanding its air force unit, military personnel and have equipped their defense with latest military equipments. Our army is purely armed with old military instruments mainly captured during our armed struggle and our air force is nonexistent. I was in the army and what we have is a nominal defence forces and the sad part is the weyanne junta knows everything. And that is due to the fact that while the mafia group pfdj is concentrated in expanding the worthless festivals and dances all over the world, the weyanne junta was arming from its toe to nose.
    May god protect our country from the mafia group called pfdj and weyanne aggression.

    Well said!!! We know deep inside our military and like you said the weyanna has all they need including intelligence inside Eritrea. When I escaped the endless slavery in Eritrea I met an Ethiopian from Tigray who used to live in Eritrea and become an intelligence officer and what he told me really shocked me. What he told me is that they even know which unit leader is on leave of absence, vacation, sick, frozen.....halay melay degefti higdef kea they still talking childish.

  14. Considering Ethiopia relies on U.S. logistics, funding (aid), training (U.S. military trains Ethiopian soldiers) and sanctioning Eritrea on your behalf, most rational people would conclude it is Ethiopia that deeply relies on the U.S. to face Eritrea.


    FYI, statistically speaking, Eritrea is well ahead of Ethiopia in just about every important socio-economic indicator.

    ReplyDelete
  15. It seems you are completely detached from reality. Thousands of Ethiopian troops have defected to Eritrea this year alone. In previous years, even an Ethiopian General and his trusted colonels, along with 350 soldiers defected to Eritrea, too. What's alarming about Ethiopia's high profile military defections is they are not conscripts ---they are people who willingly signed up to the military to earn a paycheck. So for these soldiers to defect to Eritrea in such large numbers is a strong inkling of the deteriorating situation in Ethiopia's armed military.

    "In 2006, over 300 Ethiopian troops, including Brigadier General Kemal Gelchu, along with his trusted colonels, defected to Eritrea."

  16. I totally agree with you Madote. I would like to add my own ...
    Top Ten (10) reason why woyane won’t go to war against Eritrea

    10. 2014 TPLF Millionaires have much to lose than 1998 TPLF shiftas

    9. Ukrainian Pilots are busy fighting their East Ukrainians/Putin

    8. They don’t want to interrupt the Ethiopian 18% economic growth :)

    7. Thanks to wikileaks, E. African countries have come to know woyane lie-machine

    6. TPLF won’t do any suicide mission against Eritrean EDF since they know the Ethiopian oppositions are waiting for an opportune time to evict woyane out of Oromo and Amhara land.

    5. Oromo & Amhara today are smarter than in 1998 and won’t
    be their Fenjji Regach (minesweepers)

    4. Flashbacks of 1998-2000 battles in Tsorona, Alitena, & Assab

    3. Ethiopian "honest" General Tsadkan is still alive to advise the Abay Tigray dreamers to keep just Adwa

    2. Not just Eritrean army, Every Eritrean has AK47 to defend The Land,

    .....And the number one, numero uno, Andegna Ku'Tr, Kutsri Hade is:

    1. The dream of “Greater Tigray” died with H.E. Frog, aka Prime Minister Meles Zenawi

  17. Just to add to that , 5 airforce pilots are in eritrea this year ALONE, & this agame has the audacity :)

    1) It's not Ato Desalegn's place to remove IA from office as that is


    something only the people of Eritrean may do.


    2) We Eritreans should be aware that the incompetent TPLF regime in


    Addis uses war against Eritrea to distract, confuse and thus unite the


    divided and justifiably imbittered people of Ethiopia.


    3) Eritrea must stop the using the language of machismo and jahra


    against the regime in Addis, this type of language alone is part


    and parcel of the cause to all our troubles.


    May the spirit of peace, wisdom and prosperity reign forevermore in


    The Horn.

  19. What do u mean let Ethiopia use our ports free of charge? That sounds like a victim giving up a legal fight that u have won already. Badme belongs to Eritrea & the sea access belongs to us. The right solution is sooner or later Ethiopia must vacate Eritrean territory. On access to the sea we must charge for services of our ports. It is an important asset of the Eritrean people. I believe we should not charge them high rates like Djibouti is currently doing, because that is there right to charge whatever u like for services u provide. It would be a show of good neighborly kindness for Eritrea to charge Ethiopia a reasonable amount for access to the sea. To simply give them free access because they vacate from our territories after more then a decade of occupation & countless conspiracies, sanctions,etc... is just plain foolish.

  25. From 1991-1998, Eritrea did not charge Ethiopia for the use of its ports. Once a new regime is put in place in Ethiopia that respects international law and Eritrea's sovereignty, Eritrea will probably go back to its policy of providing free port access to its landlocked neighbor.

    ReplyDelete
  26. What a wasting time to this analysis, What Ethiopian PM may said it just for seek of election to 2015, or just to create fear to Eritrean people as a result to stick with the Eritrean dictator. Because in practice, Issaias is doing what Ethiopian government supposed to do which is weakening Eritrea people and its defence capability.

    This time Ethiopian regime and some extremist Ethiopians are enjoying the Eritrean peoples misery and self distractions.

    Ethiopia won't go to war with Eritrea because Eritrea is narcotizing by it self, so if Eritrea is dying by itself why Ethiopian regime wastes its time and money even though Ethiopian regime doesn't care about Ethiopian youth as we know from the past war. Issaias and his criminals group are killing the nation on their own. I hope not but if there is no change within the coming 2 years, the Eritrean govt and the nation will fall apart by itself.
    Question to the writer, Where did you get those statistics? For example like 90% of Ethiopia's budget is from us, Ethiopian forces are stretched thin, and mentioned less than 20,000 personals but compared to Ethiopian population it is insignificant. By the way, those you mentioned mercenaries are "cash caw" to Ethiopian government by getting paid by UNAMID or US. Above all, you need to Cite your sources. You sound like trying to mislead us with this cheap analysis. And when you make a conclusion you should compare both countries weak and strong side.

    ReplyDelete
  27. Poor argument!

    I think you didn't know the real situation in East Africa especially in Ethiopia. let me give you some hints

    1- for the last 23 years Somalia was failed state but Ethiopia leading mission changes all thing in today's Somalia. That was Ethiopia national interest when our neighbor countries get peace our country also benefited.

    2- UN/AU/IGAD/other international institution choose Ethiopia Army for a peace keeper in many countries that was not come as accidentally. It was hard work in the country moderns army standards.

    3- Ethiopian people didn't want any war with any other country the foreign policy of the country live with other country in peace,development and win win strategy. where as when foreign invaders come Ethiopians gave appropriate answer for invaders and keep the country sovereignty.

    4. Finally Ethiopia main enemy is poverty so we want to apply our resources to eradicate it but if any country try to touch the country's land the army take immediate action. That is why Eritrea couldn't start war at Ethiopia face to face rather proxy war in Somalia by assist Alqaida linked Alshabab group for this Eritrea punished by world community.

    There fore don't worry Ethiopia don't start war with Eritrea unless and otherwise Eritrea try to touch our sovereign land Bademe.

  30. Thank you Ermias. idk why Madote is spreading this kind of ideas. they will vacate our land, its just a matter of time. But as far as using our ports for free, that's treason. if we get to that point with them, they will have to pay for port services like any landlocked does.

  32. "Eritrea's main focus on the use of Assab will no longer be to serve Ethiopia. The plan is to develop Assab port as a transit and duty free port, where ships exchange their cargos and receive services and supplies. The very strategic location of Assab, being at the busiest maritime route, and at the gate of the Red sea and Indian ocean, makes it favorable to use it as a transit port. Though this needs heavy investment, with dedication and hardworking, we will be there." --Gash

  34. Egypt couldn't attack The Renaissance Dam from Eritrea b/c not only the difrence of distance b/n dam and Eritrea over thousand km but also The strength of Ethiopia Air Force. Whereas if Eritrea try to cooperate with Egypt to distabilize Ethiopia, Ethiopian Air Force can attack Asmara and all Eritrea territories. For evidence It was seen by 1998-2000 boarder war Ethiopia Air Force destroy Asmara Airport, Sawa military training center and Eritrea Air Defense bases.

    ReplyDelete
  35. I think all of these bluffing is coming just before the elections to divert attention. Everyone has figured out the liar TPLF. The enemies they have are enough to destroy them. Just in case there is need to defend our country, Eritrea is ready. With Russia in Eritrea, USA is no longer a threat.

E.P.L.F, which lead by Eritrean heroes and heroines whom most of them have been killed or detailed by the mafia group called PFDJ (People's Front for Destruction and Jailing) and the second one is the mafia group called PFDJ which has destroyed our culture, economy, military and hope.

  68. Eritrean Port OwnerAugust 29, 2014 at 5:59 AM

    Madote,
    I do not think you get the point. Eritrea never gave Ethiopia free access. There is always fees linked to the services and products.
    However, I can help you saying this. We never asked hard currency to componsate the services rendered. They use to pay in Birr and it was okay as we used the Birr to buy goods (consumable) from Ethiopia.
    The bottom line though as stated by President Issayas in one of his Q & A with a jounalist "Ethiopia can choose any port among the neighboring countries. It is to the benefit of Ethiopia to have many choices" among others Djibouti, Barbara, Mombasa, Port Sudan and Eritrean ports of Massawa and Assab.
    Free no way and will not be dreamed.

    HOW and WHY TIGRAYANS BECAME KNOWN AS BEGGARS

    In Tigray, begging is a legitimate profession. It's just like any other profession. When people ask you what you do for a living, you can say "I am a beggar" or "Lemine iye Zinebir." And people will not think anything of it. Just like somebody would answer "I am a nurse or a teacher or a police officer" Tigrayans do say "I am a beggar." It is seen as a legitimate and clever way of making a living.

    In Asmara, Tigrayans were famous for begging in order to avoid breaking a dollar. I am serious! Honest to God this is true. They used to say, "Intay gedisuni. Lemine Zeydirer iye kab Kirshi Zeshirif." They would prefer to stand in a corner and beg because they didn't want to break a dollar.

  76. Alec, free port does not mean you don't pay for port services. Payment or fees for port services (wedeb agelgelot) is always there whether it's a free port or not. Ethiopia enjoyed Eritrean ports as free ports from 1991 - 1998.
    So what does free port mean? To answer this, let me use an example:
    Let's say you shipped a car to Eritrea. By the time the car gets to the port, you will need to pay both for port services and, of course, the necessary tax for the value of the car in order for the car to be released to you. However, if you ship a car to Ethiopia through one of the Eritrean ports, you will pay only for the port services. You will pay the tax on the value of the car to the Ethiopian government. You will not pay the tax twice! That is what free port essentially is. So port service fee is always there whether it is your own port or somebody else's. Also, Ethiopia can enjoy an extremely low port service fee rates depending on its relationship with its neighbors.

  82. Lol Ethiopian just get dumber and dumber the only reason UN chose Ethiopia army for peacekeepers is you are like 91million population and Bademe is not Ethiopia and the only reason Eritrea don't want to be the first to start war to get your Ethiopia out of our territory is cause we don't want to lose any Eritrean life and if we start first it will give the USA a reason to attack Eritrea with drones and convince other countries. But any way all Ethiopian helpers looks so busy

  84. that might not be his real name; RedaE means helper, you come from a dignified and civil parents, you stand tall and proud. They could have called him hash'ker and so forth but gave him a name that both allows him to know his place and live as a human being in the society. The real RedaE is translated into mercy, further stating the good nature and later the disappointment and upsetting of their moral which forced them to expel him of the warm and pleasant home you grew-up in and fondly remember.
    whatever will be will be, as they say.
    the same story here too!

  86. I guess you are right, Madote is not the real Madote. We all do not expect an agrument like that from Madote. I myself thought that Madote stand for Eritreanism and I do not see any reason as to why Madote stand by his own and comment to sell our port for free to the killers of our martyrs? Nonthing is said officially so why spread such silly comments in public? There must be woyane hacker.

  88. Come down bro, breathe in breathe out LOL.., Anyway bro it was just a little misunderstanding. *MADOTE* explained it, like this... :)....

    The following is Eritrea's plan for Assab:

    "Eritrea's main focus on the use of Assab will no longer be to serve Ethiopia. The plan is to develop Assab port as a transit and duty free port, where ships exchange their cargos and receive services and supplies. The very strategic location of Assab, being at the busiest maritime route, and at the gate of the Red Sea and Indian Ocean, makes it favorable to use it as a transit port. Though this needs heavy investment, and with dedication and hardwork, we will be there."
