    The Ethiopian government was repeatedly said, the Sudan and Egypt concerns on the great Renaissance Dam was baseless and the tight political climate they were into with Ethiopian government was an empty accusations.
    Now Thank you for the Sudanese government for taking such important measures and position. The Ethiopian people overwhelmingly believe that the great Renaissance Dam serves all of us: Ethiopia, Sudan and Egypt.
    It is completely a puzzle to watch while the Sudanese people and government supporting GERD, the Toxic Ethiopian Diasporas are opposing it.
    Nothing more than the GERD, exposed the true colors of the unschooled and toxic Ethiopian Diasporas who usually want to play the game on both sides of the political fence..(One time assumes the role Ethiopians and the other time takes the role of Egyptians)
    See that is bullshit, no matter how you look at it.
    It is obvious that Egypt is engaged in proxy war with Ethiopia and we have a heard from the horses own mouth, Anidargachew Tsige and Brihanu Nega..Ginbote 7 and ESAT is getting a political, financial, training and logistic support to dismantle Ethiopian future and GERD. The openly oppositions of the toxic Diasporas from South Africa to Copenhagen from Japan to North America against fundraising of GERD is a manifestation of Egyptian ill motives. I believe such sincerely campaign against the GERD will work the other way round.
    In the context of long history of Ethiopia, when it comes to protecting national interest there is no party that is as credibility deficient as Ethiopian opposition parties. Coming from ESAT and Ginbote 7, statements about credibility are hypocrisy at its most nauseating.
    The Ethiopia people unanimously said, there are fights that you can’t walk way from, GERD is a good example. We will fight ESAT and Ginbote, some other affiliate oppositions to the bitter end as long as national interest is concerned.
    Come rain or shine, GERD will be constructed as per schedule and the defeat of our enemies is also inevitable

      This is Ethiopia time every enemy of ethiopia are broken down one by one every year.

      Look Egypt, Sudan, Libya, Syria, somalia, Eritrea,

      and the rest are giving up like Sweden and qatar are negotiating peace.

      According to BBC 3000-5000 young Eritrean are leaving the country every month.

      This means in five years No solider will be left in the country. Wow i know now the genius Meles planned this to win a war with out firing one bullet.

        This is not a big deal.

        Even Egypt not against it with only if question asking.

        The only people against this dam are the extremist diasporas who are talking day and night about ethiopia and working against that.

        Those talk too much and do nothing people in diaspora who want to see the country to become hell as far as they are not in power are causing a problem.

        Other wise the whole world with normal mind will support this dam.

    It should’ve been that way from the beginning, I use to always wonder why the Sudanese always sided with the Arabs, they sure look more like us and share so many things with us. But now they’ve realised that Ethiopias plan for the Nile is no more just a plan. I think its a wise move on their side, Ethiopia for sure is becoming a promising growing economy. And obviously the safest place in the horn, as we’ve seen recent incidents even Kenya is becoming a scary place to invest. So I think Ethiopia has it all a safe environment, a stable government, natural resources that have not been touched. So its no surprise that many countries are siding with Ethiopia.

    Sudan is now a nation between a rock and a hard place, tightly squeezed between its traditional Arab allies that have long abandoned it for its close ties to Al-Qaeda and other extremist elements and the West—that want to see Mr. El Bashir tried for his role in the genocide in Darfur. The recent scenario where the Sudanese President’s plane was refused entry into a Saudi Airspace on its way to a swearing in ceremony of new Iranian President, Hassan Rouhani, is a best example of rich Gulf nations exhausting their romance with Khartoum. President el-Bashir is well aware of this and that’s exactly why he temporarily shelters in the wings of Addis Ababa, one of the very few places where he couldn’t face a possible arrest for genocide and extradition to The Hague to answer those charges. With Cairo having problems of its own, at least for now, both Khartoum and Addis Ababa might have some reason to smile for a while. The question remains how long could Addis Ababa give el-Bashir the support he requires to successfully contain the enormous public pressure at home, mostly resulting from Khartoum facing a deadly cash shortage following oil-rich Juba’s divorce from its Northern neighbor in July 2011. Addis Ababa, under the leadership of the TPLF has its own reason to back Khartoum no matter what and this is pretty simple: Khartoum’s stringent support to TPLF’s armed opponents will unquestionably see the TPLF off office within months and Addis Ababa is well aware of this. I wasn’t surprised when Ethiopia’s stooge Prime Minister HD said on his recent press statement that it is not in his country’s and Africa’s interest to cooperate with the ICC. As an Ethiopian, I have no issue with our Western neighbor being a good friend of ours next door, but I am very adamant that this should come at a cost of turning our back to hundreds of thousands of our brothers and sisters in Darfur who have been would be victims of President el Bashir. I recently met a Sudanese professor who teaches at an International University in Doha in Brussels and we talked about the fate of Mr. El Bashir. He is certain that the President is living by his nose as he couldn’t see any possibility of his regime dealing with a significant public discontent, most of which has emanated from the nation’s lacking any flow of cash to finance the operations of the regime without any financial commitment from the gulf and the west. With Iran, possibly Khartoum’s only cash flow by far after the west and rich Gulf nations left it in the rain, posturing with a possible romance with the west, EL-Bashir’s fate could soon be over. If and when this happens, TPLF would surely understand that it was building a house on an egg shell as the new administration would look into the West and the Middle East and NOT to Addis Ababa, but by then I am afraid Ethiopians could be 5 billion dollars deep into TPLF injected debt.

    Lets not forget that the Sudan used to get orders from Egypt for many years ! I short Egypt had colonized the Sudan during the pashas rules . Sudan has now broken the mentality of a slave by saying no to Egypt . Thank you Meles for taking ethioia to higher level .
    May your blessed soul rest on peace with all the saints .
