    30 years in the ME is like 300 years elsewhere. No one knows what is going to happen in Saudi in the coming 5 years. They are getting too busy dragging their feet all over, soon will hunt them down at home. The war crimes happening against Yemen is historical that never happened with this magnitude in Yemen’s 5000 years long history. When things are getting settled(no one knows when and how), not only the Houtis but all Yemenis including those in southern Saudi Arabia will start paying back the sufferings in the form of revenge what is happening against them till this hour.

    Without oil and gas, they are very rich only with sand and burning sun. The high oil and gas price is gone and will never come back again. So, we will see how they are going to deal with the enormous challenges they are facing within, neighboring nations and beyond. However, it is in their nature causing troubles against others and they will not be different towards Ethiopia, too.

    As far as Asab concern, let’s just wait and see how the Eritreans are thinking about it.

    One thing is certain and that is Both Saudi and UAE are not doing things like this by themselves without permission, advice, support or other activity from USA, UK and since recently Israel.

      What is this crocodile tear about? Who sold the Assab port to begin with? The dead tyrant and Weyane mafiosis! I thought HMD is the disciple of the “visionary” leader. So, bear the consequence of your late boss, aka pseudo-visionary leader, Meles Kezenawi action.
      Actually, all these blah blah is because of AG7 activity. Desibalisizing Ethiopia ?….kkkkkk……Weyane is only worry about the power it’s hanging on and of course, the looting spree.

      CONGRATULATIONS and hats off for Professor Birhanu Nega; for exposing Weyane lies at the European parliament. Weyane is busted…ha hahahahaha

      God bless Ethiopia.

        Tesfabis Shimagle EPRP. I will not comment about the whole trash you wrote above. But I will on the last one, about your hero, Birahun Negadew Bonger. He was not invited as per VOA news. He was invited privately, by a parliament member ie. Anna Gomez to Brussels. That’s a fact. He was not giving a lecture for parliament members, he was giving a lecture for G7 members at lunch in meeting. That was the news your EPRP wing ECDF And Esat want make it news for their begging program. But I tell you that you and your defunct friends from ESAT will not hinder Ethiopia from its walk towards prosperity. Kita ras. Ana Gomez has nothing to do with Ethiopian politics.

        • Tesfalehulum says:

          You know that you stink the forum once you steps in, just a pile of garbage. You’re a typical stone from the stone factory, aka Civil Service college.
          Birhanu Nega is in Brussels European parilament head quarter, analyzing and lecturing about Ethiopia’s current issues and of course busting the weyane’s endless lies. What are you going to do about it ?? Except burning your nerve and raising your blood pressure? ….kkkkkkk
          Just for your information, he holds a professorship from a distinguished U.S. university unlike your bosses who are decorated with a purchased PhDs. And about his father, the one you tried to twist his name and make a fun of it (abatu lie menteltelesh koshahsa mehoneshen yasayal), is a self made millionaire and an exemplary Ethiopian who started from a scratch unlike your bosses who are looting the poor day in and day out.

            Dear Tesfaehulum, I am just wondering when your boss Berhanu succeed means do you know by any chance when he is going to become the prime minister of Ethiopia?

  2. Melaku Kebede Biru says:

    The Meles Zenawi type of bullying others is not helping keep Ethiopia safe. Most Meles Zenawi trained leaders act as relentless bullies. You may think bullying is perpetrated only by nasty kids or mean teenagers but it has been so common among adult religious leaders since Meles Zenawi got to power. .

    Professor Pamela Lutgen-Sandvik, Ph.D., says in her book “Adult Bullying: A Nasty Piece of Work,” .Signs of workplace bullying include getting no feedback on your performance; being yelled at or put down in front of others; having your work sabotaged or ignored; being given a heavier workload or shorter deadlines than others. Unfortunately, you probably can’t avoid interacting with your abuser (it’s usually a boss). And relentless bullying can lead to health issues like PTSD, digestive woes, headaches and depression. So what can you do?



  3. amanue says:

    Wo is he to . dectate what to do, instead should focus own cronic crisis. Hailemariam knows very well that to fight Eritrea is unthinkable.

  4. Be ewnetu says:

    Is this “warning” to Saudi as usual on Eritrea? this looks like “‘Medical check up after kill” for conformation.The Eritrean-EPRDF doesn’t have credit to mention about port and Shaebia. Dawit and Bini don’t be fool about Eritrea from EPRDF. U HAVE TO HAVE EXEPTION on EPRDF regarding Eritrea.

      I could not agree more. We should wipe the mad dog in the 1998-2000 war from Eritrea. As long as the mad dog is in power, we will have all sorts of problem. Look G7 and the rest. Come on EPRDF weak up and smell the coffee.

  6. Dagna says:

    It is very mind boggling if not shocking that the Ethiopian government is addressing the issue of Assab, first you begged Eritrea to take the port when their is a unanimous international support including From UN security council for Ethiopia to keep Assab port, then we all know did happen. Now the government is telling us they are watching the situation and if Eritrea try to destabilize Ethiopia using the Assab as a plying stick Ethiopia will react. What kind of nonsense it is, it seems the government of Ethiopia is forgetting it is in a war status with Eritrean. And the Arabs are coming to stay in Assab for ever. Eritrea is not the one Ethiopia should worry, Eritrea will be dismembered eventually it is officially an Arab enclave, if you have doubts look at its official government document headings unless you pretend to be blind and deaf to hear about the Saudi led coalition heading to Ethiopia and it is already controlling the border between Ethiopia and Eritrea by footing itself at Ethiopia’s Assab sea port by right.

    The ethiopian government and its leaders must stop mocking the Ethiopian people and insult its citizens intelligence, The government must act accordingly and dutifully and must go and grab Assab back by all legal and other means. Only by doing that Ethiopia and the region will have a lasting peace and security.>>>>
    For the Arabs and their evil allies within their both governments , Ethiopia and Eritrea are divisible,
    The Arabs claim of Ethiopian land is already in motion and the Ethiopian government and its leaders seems to watch it in envy. What a jock, stop talking crap and act seriously.

    Oh god of Abraham please save Ethiopia and its people.

    I am loving the tough talk of the pm in the last few weeks.

  8. Belachew says:

    What all Ethiopians should keep in mind is, all Eritreans are the same evil minded like their leader when it comes to Ethiopia. They will bend over for any body specially their second master (the first being Italians)- the Arabs to destabilize Ethiopia, because they are very jealous of its dramatic progress.

    • Eritrean says:

      Yes…Belachew. The Arabs have wealth way beyond Ethiopian’s dream “are jealous of you ethiopians”. You ethiopians sneak into their countries by the tens of thosands just to be their cleaners and house maids…but Yea…they’re jealous of you. lol

      The only ones who are pathetically jealous are you Ethiopians. Inspite of your supposed 10% plus GDP growth, the minute you hear good news about Eritrea or that other countries are co-operating with Eritrea you idiots get upset and make all sorts of noise.

      • Asefa says:

        Haha Italian slave go rescue your drowning relatives. If you want to prostitite your country to the Arabs then go for it they will be glad to rape you. Just keep in mind Eritra is over 50% Muslim and the Saudis would love to see them establish sharia law in Ertra. Anyway issaiass will be dead soon and all that will happen is Ertra will install another dictator or it will become the next failed state. Either way the refugees will continue fleeing the country at the rate of 5000 per month!

      • Solomon says:

        Shut ,the fu…….,, up Banda Ertireaw
        You should be a shame to call yourself .
        Ertireaw is a slave name given to you by your master Italian .
        Your forefathers sold their ass to Italian .
        Now just like your fathers you are selling your ass to Arbes(the sauid)
        Banda ugly Essaya selling his ass to Arbes as usual.
        There is no such thing Ertirea ,ever thing you claim Ertirean is belong to great people of Tigray Ethiopian,
        God bless Ethiopia!

    • Zemen says:

      The Tigrigna Eritreans time and relationship in Eritrea will be over soon. They are the reasons about everything has happened between Ethiopia and Eritrea.

      The funny thing is when they forced to leave Eritrean by the coming IS/wahabbi appointed regime in the future Eritrea, these stupid will flee like flies to Ethiopia. This is what we have to think about and deal with it.

      75% Eritreans are Muslims. Eritrea has 9 Ethnic groups and the biggest is Tigre with 100% Muslims. The Entire red sea Eritrea is occupied by Afar, Saho, Tigre and Reshida; all of them are Muslims. The trouble maker Tigrigna are nowhere to find them in the coast but they are seen and treated by locals as foreigners.

      Just wait and see what is going to happen in Eritrea and particularly against the Tigrigna that are the main cancers Ethiopia is suffering from for so long.

  9. Be ewnetu says:

    First of all Saudi will never win against majority Yemenis. It’s not only against Houti. Saudi now buying soldiers from non Arab countries Cambodia and Eritrea.. but after Syria settled Iran might come direct to counter the Sunny group. So the warning of our PM is “just kidding” like Menge to Clinton…

    • Beza says:

      Here we go one of clueless G7 beewnetu. Mengistu was gone long before Clinton came to power. You must be one of the journalists who fled the country by the name of “PRESS FREEDOM”. Conspiracy theorists of ESAT were calculating how the government of Ethiopia will come down by calculating, like you are calculating now. Tija yehonk kefo. The warning from Hailemariam is legit and timely. If the Arabs think by the name of attacking Yemen to bring their planes to Eritrea Asian by violating the sanctions of UN, they have to be ready for the consequences, which will occur, when the action is taken against Eritrea. It’s just warning. The Saudis are helping Alshebab by their conduit region Eritrea.

  16. us for us with us says:

    185,000 guns sold in one day in USA.

    The so called black Friday is serving the USA citizens up to its name. Citizens bought more than 185,000 guns legally and God knows how many guns are sold illegally the same day during the 2015 Black Friday. This means at least 200,000 guns are sold in one day and the gun industry calls it the best day while collecting hundreds of millions profits from deadly weapons sold to the citizens.

    Selling Guns, drugs, cigarettes, Alcohol, Gambling, health risky foods and medicines, sex and the likes are the most lucrative and wide spread businesses in USA and UK. Do we know about the crimes BAT-British Tobacco is doing in Africa (including wide spread of corruptions and bribes among the others in Kenya, Uganda and Burundi) and its almost 10 billion dollar profit in 2014?

    UK (England’s biggest and only visible export is weapon). Other exports are very limited and the companies are foreign owned.
    USA exports many times worth weapons than it imports oil and gas from the Gulf nations including Saudi Arabia and UAE.
    Saudi Arabia started bombing Yemen in March (almost 10 months ago) for sure with USA and UK blessing, advising and supporting. The next day France president went there. The rest of the world was thought his visit was to talk about peace and stopping the war. But he went there for support and to sell more weapons worth about 3-5 billion and the delivering would happen including in Lebanon. Why Lebanon?

    The reason why Saudi and UAE are having base in Africa i.e. Assab is clear. This is not their own idea and for their interest but those using them for their own interest namely UK and USA. War and destabilizing nations are the biggest business these two are known with. More than 1/3 of the world weapon trade goes to the GCC nations at this point namely Saudi Arabia, UAE, Qatar, Kuwait, Bahrain and Oman. The native population in these 6 nations is not more than 25 million in total while more than 11 million people living there are not natives but so called guest workers.

    Do really they need to buy with these huge number of most sophisticated and very expensive deadly weapons? Is it really for the benefit of their citizens and region including Yemen? Look at the situation in Iraq, Libya, Yemen, Syria, Tunisia and others in the region. Imagine what is going to happen from now on in Lebanon, Jordan, Saudi Arabia, Egypt and the likes if they continue the way they are doing which is being the best tools UK and USA are using them for decades to destabilize the region and ultimately destroy themselves using foreign made weapons and forces they are paying 100s of billions.

    UAE has hired about 3000 privately owned mercenary solders from Colombia. They are paying $3000 each every month. Many solders that are fighting in Yemen in the name of Saudi, UAE, Qatar and Kuwait are none Arabs including Africans such as Senegalese and Sudanese. Pakistanis, Bangladeshi, Turks, central Asians and the likes are the main forces fighting in Yemen. As the report says western air forces and some Pakistanis are flaying on the Yemeni skies with the GCC nations jets while USA and UK satellite images are doing the work. Even some are saying Israeli is very much involved with this.

    One thing is clear. The base in Assab has nothing to do with the war in Yemen but it is about their future plan in the region (red sea) coming from UK and USA. We can say this is the begging of the end the new nation called Eritrea with the red sea coast line. However, in the end the biggest losers will be the Saudis, UAE and anyone that is happily used by the UK, USA and others dragging itself in the hell look like conflicts and war within and against others.

    As far as Ethiopia concern, the biggest problems and main players from behind are known and that are UK (England) and USA. These are the main players started long time ago in the name of colonization and since 1993 they happily blocked Ethiopia from her sea coast right. These two don’t care even about own citizens knowing USA citizens are arming hugely for the worst civil wars look like preparation. We also know who rules these two nations. Look at the next president candidates from both sides except Sanders. Each of them are behaving the potential candidates happily and quickly starting world war III.

    Ethiopia must strength and modernize her military including with human power and homemade technology capabilities. The future greatest military power nations like China and Russia are the only hope to this world including Ethiopia. China needs to wake up and start playing in international affairs not only economically as she is doing but also militarily. If not, she will be the worst victim and biggest loser in many ways. Countries like China, Russia, India, Iran, South America and the likes need to work together knowing how far and deep can go the UK and USA lead military alliance including from its base in the ME.

    Don’t buy even a word what the Saudis, UAE and the likes are saying. Don’t buy a word coming from UK and USA. They even don’t care about their own people but conflicts and wars for profits to the few. Ethiopia must rely on herself while working closely and together with china, Russia, Japan (the first nation ever bombed by two huge nuclearr bombs), India, Korea, Italy, Germany and the likes. Iran together with Iraq is more than enough to deal with Saudi and all so called GCC nations except Oman(that is not Sunni but from another Islamic sect closer to Shia).

    When it comes to Western Europe, It is better to believe, trust and have close relation with Italy and Germany than with UK (England) for anything. They are the source of all troubles in Ethiopia since 1868 and the region including ME. These by the English empire created so called GCC nations are busy doing a total suicide mission. They must stop stock piling so many and too heavy weapons from UK, USA and France spending 100s of billions every year. What they are wishing and also doing against others will hunt them down in the end.

    Yemeni Army Declares Rapid Advance in 3 Saudi Border Provinces

    TEHRAN (FNA)- Yemen’s army declared major win in battle against Saudi troops in the Southern parts of Saudi Arabia, saying it has made rapid and major advances in the three bordering provinces of Najran, Jizan and Asir.
    Sharaf Loqman, the spokesman of the Yemeni army, told the Arabic-language al-Mayadeen news channel on Thursday that the massive operations by the country’s forces in the three Southern provinces started with rapid progress.
    He said in case of an order by the top brass in the army, “we will capture the entire Najran province”.
    His remarks came after reports disclosed on Wednesday that the Saudi Arabia’s warplanes were targeting the Southern parts of the kingdom with cluster bombs in a bid to stop the Yemeni army and popular forces’ continued and rapid advance deep into their territories.
    Saudi Arabia has used cluster bombs many times before, but this is the first time that it is using it against its own population in a desperate move to stop the huge advances made by the Yemeni forces inside the kingdom in recent days.
    The Yemeni army and popular forces have frequently crossed the border captured the Saudi military bases and outpost, ruined the military sites and returned home in the last few months and after the Riyadh-led coalition refrained from stopping its air raids on residential areas in Yemen’s cities.
    But, after months of coalition intensified air raids on civilian areas, the Yemeni forces changed strategy and warned that they would start ground assaults on Saudi territories to force Riyadh stop the massacre.
    The new strategy was put into effect on Sunday, when Yemen’s army and popular forces crossed the border and captured several key military bases in three provinces in Southern Saudi Arabia near the border.
    The Yemeni forces seized Malhama, al-Radif and al-Mamoud military bases in Jizan, al-Rabou’a military base in Asir and Nahouqa military base in Najran provinces.
    Then on Monday, the Yemeni forces took control of three more Saudi military bases in al-Shurfa region in Najran.
    They also captured a military camp in Najran, and destroyed the military vehicles in there.
    On Tuesday, the Saudi warplanes used banned cluster bombs against civilians in 5 airstrikes on residential areas in Yemen’s Hajjah province. Tens of people were killed and wounded in the air raids.
    Earlier today, the Yemeni army spokesman Sharaf Luqman said that the army and popular forces are advancing deep inside Saudi Arabia and capturing more military bases in the Southern parts of the kingdom.
    “The Yemeni forces have managed to inflict heavy losses on the Saudi enemy inside Saudi Arabia,” Luqman said.
    He reiterated that the Yemeni army and the popular forces are having high morale to fight the enemy, and said, “The military operation to capture new military bases of Saudi Arabia is underway.”
    Luqman said that the Saudi enemy has resorted to airstrikes which will surely fail.
    Saudi Arabia has been striking Yemen for 253 days now to restore power to fugitive president Mansour Hadi, a close ally of Riyadh. The Saudi-led aggression has so far killed at least 7,116 Yemenis, including hundreds of women and children.
    Hadi stepped down in January and refused to reconsider the decision despite calls by Ansarullah revolutionaries of the Houthi movement.
    Despite Riyadh’s claims that it is bombing the positions of the Ansarullah fighters, Saudi warplanes are flattening residential areas and civilian infrastructures.

    Al-Qaeda seizes southern cities after Saudis push rebels back
    Gulf Arabs direct fire at Iran allies, not Islamic State

    As Saudi Arabia’s allies try to bomb Islamic State out of its strongholds in Syria and Iraq, the kingdom’s war in Yemen is enabling jihadists to seize new ones.

    Al-Qaeda took over two cities in south Yemen on Wednesday, local media said. In the key port of Aden, whose recapture from Shiite rebels was the biggest success for Saudi-led forces in Yemen, there are growing signs of a militant presence. Al-Qaeda’s flag has flown above the police station in the war-scarred al-Tawahi neighborhood, and graffiti on the road to Taiz warns that “the Islamic State is strong.” Students at Aden University have been warned not to mix with the opposite sex.

    Yemeni Forces Send Another Saudi Warship Down

    TEHRAN (FNA)- Yemen’s army and Ansarullah fighters targeted another Saudi warship in Ta’iz province early on Saturday, the seventh Saudi vessel sinking in waters offshore Yemen in the last three months.

    The targeted ship had repeatedly fired rockets on residential areas in the Yemeni province of Ta’iz, inflicting casualties and destruction there.

    Reports said the Saudi warship was targeted and destroyed off Mukha coast in Ta’iz early this morning. Reports said there were casualties, but did not provide exact figures, adding that some of the naval forces were also rescued by the Saudi-led coalition fleet present in the region.

    The coalition warships usually deploy offshore Ta’iz to strike coastal targets, but they retreat from Yemen’s waters as soon as one of their vessels is destroyed by the Yemeni army and Ansarullah forces.

    On November 25, the Yemeni forces targeted and destroyed a Saudi warship in the waters near Bab al-Mandab Strait.

    The Saudi warship was targeted with Yemeni missiles in the coastal waters in the province of Ta’iz.

    UAE-Saudi Arabia in Row over Plundering of Southern Yemeni Provinces

    December 8, 2015

    TEHRAN (FNA)- Gaps are widening between Abu Dhabi and Riyadh over the wealth and resources of Yemen’s Southern provinces, a Yemeni political analyst said.

    “The assassination of the governor of Yemen’s Southern province of Aden, Jaafar Mohammed Saad, by the ISIL was the result of the differences between Saudi Arabia and the UAE over plundering the provinces of Aden and Ta’iz,” Mohammad Ali al-Dailami told FNA on Tuesday.

    Governor of Aden and several of his aides were killed when their convoy was hit by RPGs in Southern Yemen on Sunday.

    He noted that Aden is the largest city in Southern Yemen, and said, “This city and other Southern Yemeni cities are the scenes of unprecedented insecurity these days as the Al-Qaeda and the ISIL terrorists have taken control of those cities with the aerial backup of the Saudi warplanes.”

    Al-Dailami said the crash of a UAE helicopter over Lahij province’s al-And military base last Wednesday happened just two days after an explosion in the same base which showed intensified differences between Saudi Arabia and the UAE; the two rivals that are trying to win a bigger share of the wealth of Yemen’s Southern provinces.

    On Monday, a Yemeni politician said the Emirati government had plotted ISIL’s rocket-propelled grenade (RPG) attack that killed the Aden governor.

    “The UAE army has played a key role in the assassination of Mohammed Saad and the ISIL has just carried out the terrorist attack,” Naji Hessam al-Tayri told FNA.

    He noted that the governor of Aden was a supporter of Mansour Hadi and he implemented the orders of the Saudi army.

    The widening differences between Saudi Arabia and the UAE has resulted in the recent surge of terrorist attacks and massacre of people, he added.

    “The Saudis tried to assassinate the fugitive Yemeni prime minister Khaled Bahah in a hotel in Aden last month and also the headquarters of the UAE troops in Aden was attacked by the men of Jaafar Mohammed Saad in cooperation with Al-Qaeda terrorists (who are also close allies of Riyadh),” al-Tayri added.

    He reiterated that the UAE sought political and economic interests when it undertook to partner in the Saudi-led aggression against Yemen, but the Saudis show no care for the UAE interests, and gaps between the two Arab states are, hence, widening.

    Fugitive President Hadi is supported by Saudi Arabi, while he premier enjoys the support of the UAE.

    Saudi media outlets disclosed on Saturday that differences between Hadi and Bahah have increased even more over a cabinet reshuffling.

    Both Hadi and Bahah are former officials as they had a 2-year mandate that ended nearly a year ago, but backed by Saudi Arabia they insist to remain in power. After Yemen’s parliament voted to put an end to Hadi’s self-extended term, Hadi defied the legislature’s order. Ansarullah and other popular forces came to the capital, Sanaa, to make Hadi step down. Hadi and his cabinet escaped to the Southern port city of Aden and then to Saudi Arabia to have a government in exile.

    Following months of airstrikes and war by a Saudi-led coalition, Hadi and Bahah returned to Aden, although the situation is shaky and the city is highly insecure.

    The differences between Hadi and Bahah erupted after the former president ousted Yemeni interior and foreign ministers.

    Political observers believe that the quarrel between Hadi and his prime minister derives from the underlying row between Saudi Arabia as supporter of Hadi and UAE as supporter of Bahah.

    Hadi and Bahah have been running a feud for the past several months, and their differences grew noisy when a number of Saudi officials worked out a plan to replace the former president with his premier -who had both fled to Saudi Arabia then – in order to encourage the revolutionary forces back in Yemen to work with him and allow him to start a new government.

    Earlier this week, Arab media also disclosed increasing differences between Saudi Arabia and the UAE over the recruitment of a number of Colombian mercenaries by Abu Dhabi to replace the UAE troops in the coalition in Yemen.

    The UAE has recruited hundreds of Colombian mercenaries in recent months to send them to Yemen, and the Arab media outlets said that the UAE has recruited its private army of Colombian mercenaries to replace them with its own forces in Yemen after sustaining heavy casualties in the war-torn country.

    The UAE had previously sent mercenaries from Latin America, specially Colombia, to Yemen without prior coordination with Saudi Arabia.

    The United Arab Emirates has quietly built an army of Latin American mercenaries to fight for Yemen’s deposed government in a proxy war.

    In a program launched by Blackwater founder Erik Prince and now run by the Emirati military, the force of 450 Latin American troops – mostly made up of Colombian fighters, but also including Chileans, Panamanians and Salvadorans – adds a new and surprising element to the already chaotic mix of forces from foreign governments, armed tribes, terrorist networks and Yemeni militias that are currently embroiled in the Middle Eastern nation, Fox News reported.
